SAVE the Minerva road milkbar and other small businesses.

IGA is planning on opening in amongst a small group of shops along Minerva road.

Minerva road milkbar has been running for decades. It is part of the local community and landscape supporting a dozen local families in employment.

Already local businesses will need to deal with the loss of business due to a local school closing and this extra and unfair competition will be devastating.

This is the "big boys" coming in to crush the small business operators. Many businesses' will suffer and possibly close causing the street to become an unsightly ghost town.

There is already limited parking and is not suitable for a major supermarket to take up business premises. The IGA is going to be 500sq and this requires 40 customer parking and 6 staff parking. IGA is suggesting that there is enough off street parking in this already jam packed street. Their idea is that customers can us parking that is in front of three local schools! This will increase traffic infront of the schools thus placing our kids at danger.

We, the undersigned call upon the Geelong City Council to block IGA from taking up a business premises in Minerva Road.
