In Rocklea QLD on “Medium Impact Industry” at 1421 Ipswich Rd Rocklea QLD 4106:

Maureen Young commented

I object to the opening of yet another car wrecking business in my area. The area is flood prone. The waterways form part of the Oxley Creek Catchment. Oxley creek already has some of the poorest quality water in Brisbane due to the historical industrial activities in the area. I have heard that many of the wrecked cars are being imported from South East Asia. I think that importing wrecked cars and dumping them on cheap flood prone land is unsustainable. Industries in my area have a poor track record for environmental responsibility. More and more residential properties are being built in Rocklea. Car wrecking yards do not contribute to the amenity of local residents. We already have problems with pollution, dumped cars, hooning and anti-social behaviour. We don't want more car yards, and we certainly don't need them.
