IGA (Maleny) has applied for a Material Change of Use to build an 8 pump petrol station and chemical storage facility on 19-21 Bunya St within 40 metres of Maleny State Primary School's classrooms.

Apart from the obvious safety and pollution concerns, being so close to developing children's brains, it is at the entrance to Maleny on a street that has no other industrial developments. The traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times is horrendous, indeed, it is thought to be one of the most dangerous school approaches in Queensland!

Furthermore, the sheer scale and position of the proposed development does not fit in with the town character, which is broadly traditional single-storey timber buildings set back from the roadway with muted earthy paint colours, no major company signage of the scale of a service station exists in the town.

I am opposed to the present (MCU 12/0207 ERA12/0089) and all future Development Applications for a Material Change of Use to establish a Service Station & Environmentally Relevant Activity (Chemical Storage) at 19 & 21 Bunya Street, Maleny, described as Lot 9 RP26376 & Lot 10 RP26376.
