In Botany NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 1581 Botany Road, Botany NSW 2019:

Ashlyn Baker commented

Please do not approve a 24/7 macdonalds in ability. I believe the council has spent a lot of money and effort in trying to divert traffic and big trucks off Botany Road onto Foreshore road in order to reduce congestion, noise, pollution and improve the quiet residential neighbourhood that is Botany especially in the proposed site of McDonald's. Building a McDonald's, especially a 24 hour one will negate all that hard work in preserving the village of Botany with its important history, heritage buildings and close knit community. It will significantly increase traffic on this small one lane road which is the only way in and out of the suburb, increase noise especially at night and disturb this peaceful village. Local residents like myself bought into the area as we liked the quaint quiet charm and wanted a safe place to raise our young children for years to come. A McDonald's in this area is going to reduce the liveability of the area with increased rubbish, traffic in an already congested area, increase large trucks, noise especially at night, attract non-locals loitering and there have been concerns about an increase in drugs, alcohol and crime. It will also drive down local house prices not to mention cause troubles in the sir Joseph banks Park which I believe has been problematic in previous years.
