Squeeze no latte mat­ter

Geelong Advertiser - - YOUR SAY -

MORE than 150 ob­jec­tions were lodged against the Bean Squeeze driv­ethrough pro­posed for Highton. On Thurs­day night the Gee­long coun­cil voted unan­i­mously against a bid to build the out­let.

See, peo­ple get cranky with­out cof­fee. I’m sure if they al­lowed the cof­fee they’d be a lot hap­pier. Tea­gan Louise LB

Com­plain­ing for the sake of it. Ryan Coy

Wow. Would’ve imag­ined it would have been buried by now. Danielle Thomp­son

I’m a Highton res­i­dent. Bring on Bean Squeeze. Daniel Breen

Take the traf­fic flow into ac­count. The one in Shan­non Ave is a joke. Also the one in High St, Bel­mont. Brian Gay­lard

The one on the cor­ner of Torquay Rd and Church St, Grovedale, is a traf­fic pain. Bev­er­ley Shal­lard-Macleod

I wish it was a bar in­stead, I’d love a place to sit down and drink in Highton. Kriströður Úl­fur­son

I re­mem­ber it at the Highton meet­ing. Wow, coun­cil must be putting up road­blocks again. Lis­ten to the peo­ple di­rectly af­fected, coun­cil. Sure it wouldn’t hap­pen in Har­wood’s street. Rudy Hor­vat

Enough cof­fee shops al­ready. No Beans, thanks. Fraser Djuna

Ridicu­lous lo­ca­tion will cause traf­fic is­sues each morn­ing and night. Traf­fic is banked back for blocks as it is; will only get busier as the Wan­dana Heights es­tate is pop­u­lated. John Watts

There are very many places to get cof­fee in Highton. En­cour­age those who need cof­fee to get out of their cars. Coun­cil-con­trolled land is not ‘free’ for any­one with a busi­ness idea. Jenny Poss­ing­ham

Bean Squeeze make bet­ter cof­fee than any­where else in that area. Once it goes ahead, all the peo­ple com­plain­ing with their dodgy signs will be buy­ing their cof­fee there. Jase Frehley

First they com­plain about an aged care fa­cil­ity, now a cof­fee shop. What next for them to com­plain about? Rachelle Carter
