    I firmly beleive that from Risk Mitigation perspective, sensitive constructions (Danger/ Fire Hazzard) like this should n't be this close to the petrol pump.

    Please note there are mobile towers in the vicinity which adds to this issue.

    I am assuming that for these facilities one of the main objective is to provide a safe environment for development of children. Not sure how they will provide that with these 2 major concerns.

    I beleive this will encourage all future similar developments around petrol pump.

    We strongly oppose this proposal to convert the property to a Child Care Centre for the two reasons below.

    1. From the perspective of providing a safe environment, the proximity to the petrol station makes it a sub-optimal choice, unsuitable for children.

    2. The location of this property is in the Kissing Point Rd, which is the main road for traffic going through this neighbourhood. And it is close to the intersection with The Comenarra Pkwy. The facility will increase the traffic burden for the part of Kissing Point Road (from 218 Kissing Point Road to the intersection with Comenarra Pkwy), which is a potentially significant problem for people who need to go in and out of the neighbourhoood during the peak hours in the morning and in the afternoon.

    The negative impact of increased traffic for the road and the unsuitability of this location for children far outweigh benefits provided by an additional Child Care Centre. Council should set an example of how to best plan for a highly efficient, safe and well-balanced neighbourhood by not approving facility of this kind in an unsuitable location.
