Majority of submissions not in favour of Benaraby servo
TEN submissions were made on the proposed Benaraby service station and shopping centre development during the application period.
Three of those, however, were not "properly made" and declared invalid.
Of the ten submissions three supported the development and seven objected. Benaraby man Marty Hayden was one of the people who made a submission against the development. His concerns included light, noise and air pollution, road safety, possible fuel spills, and potential damage to landmarks.
Gladstone Regional Council did not release the submissions, but summarised the concerns raised. Those who objected to the development shared Mr Hayden's concerns and added issues around onsite septic, stormwater management and waste pollution.
The public consultation period closed on Friday, June 19. The application has not been finalised.
