The Toll Dowling st proposed expansion is totally in the wrong area. This area historically is zoned light industrial, there is nothing " light" about this operation. It is heavy in all respects especially in NOISE, WEIGHT of movements and HOURS of operation. It should belong in an industrial site away from residential suburbs, schools hospital hotels university and City park public space.
20 million investment!!! the company and some cry. That's fine let Toll invest for sure but not at this site, start a fresh at Western Junction or, Rocherlea Estate. The Current Toll Dowling st infrastructure is not huge with much open space and a couple of tin warehouses which would be attractive to more "LIGHT" industry, or inner city housing developement if Toll was willing to think more laterally and community minded. This approach would fit well with the current CITY futures funding recently announced. Residents and rate payers and visitors to our heritage city need leadership on these issues to add to our natural assets not detract from them.
