Support the Little Guys-Save Local Businesses

The redevelopment of the BP Service Station in Manly will have an impact on small local businesses.

Small businesses who have it tough enough as it is to survive against bigger franchises and companies.

The intention for the BP to build a larger convenience store and outdoor seating area is unnecessary and unjustified.  This is a service station for the sale of petrol and other minor mechanical needs, NOT a convenience store or coffee shop.

This particularly affects me and my family as I am the owner of the convenience store "Stillitano's Corner" directly opposite the BP.

A redevelopment like this could make me shut my doors, make me lose my livelihood and that of my family.

A part from this, I love being a part of the local community and providing a service to the local community of which I am immensely proud, and hope to continue to do for many years to come.
