Church knocked back

Comment News (Gosnells) - - NEWS -

A SEC­OND at­tempt by the Evan­gel Chris­tian Fel­low­ship to get ap­proval for a church build­ing in Dar­ling Downs has been knocked back by the Shire of Ser­pen­tine Jar­radale. The Fel­low­ship had pro­posed a church to ac­com­mo­date up to 120 peo­ple on two lots that to­tal 4ha, off Masters Road. The ap­pli­ca­tion at­tracted 86 com­plaints and six let­ters of sup­port. A pre­vi­ous ap­pli­ca­tion was re­fused last June be­cause it was not con­sid­ered to be ap­pro­pri­ate land use in the Res­i­den­tial and Sta­bles pol­icy area, and the pro­posal had not ad­e­quately ad­dressed en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns in­clud­ing traf­fic move­ments, noise pol­lu­tion, the im­pact on wet­land in the lots and treat­ment of stormwa­ter. The sec­ond ap­pli­ca­tion al­tered the sit­ing and scale of the church but was still con­sid­ered by of­fi­cers of the Shire, and ul­ti­mately coun­cil­lors, to not be an ap­pro­pri­ate land use.
