Stop the petrol station and fast food development opposite our primary school in Maleny

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

A development application for an 8 bowser, 2 fast food outlet petrol station is currently before the Sunshine Coast Regional Council (MCU18/0111). The development is directly across the road from Maleny primary school, with the closest classrooms only 40 metres away.

We oppose this application for the following reasons:

  • it is too close to the school, where over 400 primary school children attend
  • there will be increased traffic congestion, which would impact on the safety of students, staff and parents for the primary school and high school that is just up the road
  • there would be potential negative health effects from emissions from the petrol station
  • it does not maintain the integrity of Maleny's brand, which is its uniqueness, character and heritage.

We need to make our voices loud and clear that we do not want this type of development on this site, so close to our primary school children.

If a developer wants to build a petrol station in Maleny, there has to be a better site.

We already have over 600 letters to the Minister for Transport and Main Roads that concerned people have signed opposing this development.

Now we need your help to ensure the Sunshine Coast Regional Council, Minister for Transport and Main Roads and the Minister for Education know how inappropriate a petrol station and fast food outlet development is for that close to a primary school.

Your voice counts. Let it be heard!
