Servo plan fu­els res­i­dents’ anger

North Coast Times - - FRONT PAGE -

PLANS for a fuel sta­tion op­po­site Old Nurs­ery Park have raised alarm among Yanchep res­i­dents.

The City of Wan­neroo has in­vited sub­mis­sions on plans for the BP con­ve­nience store and two show­rooms on the cor­ner of Yanchep Beach Road and New­man Road.

New­man Road res­i­dent Mel Ata­rau said the traf­fic gen­er­ated would be a big is­sue for fam­i­lies with chil­dren and was con­cerned a traf­fic as­sess­ment was not based on the lat­est pop­u­la­tion fig­ures of Yanchep and Two Rocks.

The mother of three said if the fuel sta­tion was built, it would not be safe for her seven-year-old daugh­ter to ride a bike to school.

Bob Figg said if there was a fire at the fuel sta­tion, it could re­quire evac­u­a­tion of the Bethanie Beach­side aged care fa­cil­ity and Yanchep La­goon Pri­mary School, which were lo­cated on the other side of the park.

On­line read­ers sug­gested Two Rocks would be a bet­ter lo­ca­tion for a fuel sta­tion as that sub­urb had none, while Yanchep had three.

The con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod will close on Septem­ber 11.
