No McDonalds in the Dandenong Ranges

A strong community campaign is taking in place in Victoria against the evil junk food pushers.

“In 2011, McDonald’s lodged a planning application for a 24 hour outlet with drive thru in Tecoma.

This application was met with a record number of 1,170 written objections directed at local Council by Hills residents.

The numerous objections raised concerns relating to traffic, litter, noise, crime, impact on existing local businesses, locality opposite a Primary and Pre School, proximity within 1 kilometre of a National Park, the development not befitting the character of the Hills, the demolition of the historic Hazel Vale Dairy building which currently resides at the proposed site, local amenity issues and the fact that there are no 24 hour fast food outlets with drive-thrus in the entire Dandenong Ranges.” Read more http://www.burgeroff.org/storysofar/
