In Devon Meadows VIC on “Use and Development of a...” at 73 Browns Road, Devon Meadows, VIC:

Trent Barry commented

I object to the proposal to build a place of worship in the rural, residential town to Devon Meadows. Please note that the religion or type of worship does not in any way form the basis of my objection. The current infrastructure of Devon Meadows is not equiped to support an influx of people that this facility will create, the proposed shopping centre alone will stretch the limits of traffic along Browns Road. The proposed times of worship directly conflict with the already strained Football, Netball and Cricket facilities as traffic and parking on many occasions is impacted by the lack street parking in that area. I feel that the proposed 21 car parks will be insufficient to support a facility whose goal is to attract people and build its congregation, what are the contingencies if the congregation expands (which is the goal of every place of worship).
A recent census provided to the ABS indicated that 73% of residents living in Devon Meadows selected catholic or no religion (39% and 34% respectively). This indicates that the residents of the religion proposing the place of worship will be travelling from outside of Devon Meadows, further congesting the small country town. I feel that this facility would be better suited to a larger town with the demographics that support such a religion such as Cranbourne or Clyde.
