Consider the health of your community and the environmental impact. Don't approve the planned Hungry Jacks in our community.

    1. Petition by

      Aasha Shaw

      Brighton, Australia

The planned Hungry Jacks to be built in our small, unique council will:

~ increase traffic (congestion, emissions, safety)

~rubbish (so close to the beach)

~cause a loss in residential privacy

~ cause increased smoke emissions and smell which will impact on our environment and residents

~ change the aesthetics/street scape on Edward St; it could effect housing prices. 

There are numerous negative health factors associated with Hungry Jacks. This particular Hungry Jacks will be in very close proximity to primary schools, high schools, kindy's, child care centres. Children who eat a high sodium diet risk developing obesity, asthma and high blood pressure.

"'Hungry Jack's appears to have little commitment to the health of their consumers. In the context of our national obesity crisis this type of product is reckless,'' Professor Neal said.

      Many reasons. I believe we need to support small local businesses in the area and promote healthy living.

      I don't live in the area as such but to put it close to a school is terrible.You can control the kids lunches up to senior year by either packing their own or giving them money to order from a canteen but come Year 12 Chances are they with their mates will be compelled every so often more so in most cases If their isn't a Deli nearby for a healthy alternative what can you do?My opinion is allow them to have it as an occasional treat coupled with daily exercise sessions but not to totally ban the young people from it.

      Commercialism and Fast food has ruined Glenelg. Let's not destroy Brighton as well. This community has a village feel. fast food giants are not in keeping with this.

      I would be happy If it was a Chinese Restaurant moving in there or maybe A Charlies Club Sandwich(Remember those of which Only the Marion Outlet exists now) which one could make their own roll with whatever breads/rolls and fillings they wanted encouraging healthy eating.As someone who has lost a father through bad diet choices I am totally against them building a Hungry Jack's There.I used to live in Salisbury and every week when I used to go to Elizabeth for my weekly swimming sessions and visits to the mall there I used to see back then a whole row of nothing but junk food outlets Disgusting looking back on it now.Do you want A part of Brighton with a Gym/Health Club nearby going down the same path.Think about it.
