Plans spark big row

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NEIGH­BOURS are hop­ing plans for a new devel­op­ment on their doorstep are less than set in con­crete.

With a pro­posal for Bald­wins Sand, Gravel and Con­crete to set up shop on Luthje Rd in Monto go­ing be­fore North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil next month, res­i­dents are scram­bling to file sub­mis­sions of protest.

“The site is right at the south-west cor­ner of town,” neigh­bour Cameron Mar­bach said.

“So when a wind from the south-east, the most com­mon wind for Monto, comes up, it will carry that con­crete dust all over the town.”

Jill and John Dahtler’s new house is 60m away from the pro­posed site. Other homes are nearby.

“We only have un­til Septem­ber 4 to place our sub­mis­sions,” Mr Mar­bach said.

“It re­ally feels like this is hap­pen­ing very quickly.”
