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

Lennard Allen commented

I oppose this proposed development as it;

a) would act to impose adverse health outcomes for the local community by contributing to high-fat, high sugar, fast food as THE most accessible food in the area. The impacts from diabetes, and metabolic diseases are well know (and easily googled) for communities living within close proximity to fast food outlets such as McDonalds. This is not wanted for the suburb of Botany
b) a fast-food franchise of this scale and notoriety is not in keeping with the character of the Botany, a pocket community developing a niche as one of Sydney's developing 'foodie' hubs
c) the Pemberton Street intersection has been shown by Council to be unable to be upgraded to include a signalised intersection - and traffic generation of the proposal would contribute to local road network congestion and road safety concerns.
d) the cumulative environmental impact to the community and local waterways resulting from the evidential litter problems that McDonalds has - is not an outcome the I support.

Bayside Council - do not support this proposal, there are already numerous fast food outlets nearby, and this would only detrimentally effect the suburb of Botany.
