Car wash, food out­let and stor­age plans amended

think it’s an ex­cit­ing project.

‘‘It’ll pro­vide some­thing new and ex­cit­ing be­cause the block of land is a bit of an eye­sore at the mo­ment.’’

But af­ter re­ceiv­ing ob­jec­tions, the ap­pli­ca­tion was reis­sued on Novem­ber 2 with four amend­ments.

Ac­cord­ing to the ap­pli­cants, the amend­ments were made to sat­isfy the ob­jec­tions and to im­prove move­ment flow and ve­hi­cle ac­cess.

One ob­jec­tor, Joe Serra, voiced his con­cerns in June this year.

Mr Serra said the area was one that had heavy pedes­trian traf­fic and with ve­hi­cles go­ing in and out of the fa­cil­ity it could be dan­ger­ous.

‘‘We love see­ing in­vest­ment in Tatura, but it’s not a fa­cil­ity we need,’’ he said.

The ap­pli­ca­tion is again on no­tice with the ad­di­tion of a full­height con­crete noise bar­rier to the south-west bound­ary wall and amended park­ing.

The amended ap­pli­ca­tion also stated one of the man­ual wash bays would be con­verted into a de­tail­ing bay — leav­ing just three man­ual wash bays.

Fi­nally there were also amend­ments made to the foot out­let and ramp.

Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil plan­ning and build­ing man­ager Colin Kalms said the amend­ments would ad­dress the noise con­cerns, slightly re­duce the scale of the de­vel­op­ment as well as al­low for for­ward-mov­ing traf­fic.

He said the ap­pli­ca­tion would be on no­tice un­til Novem­ber 20.

‘‘De­pend­ing on how many ob­jec­tions we re­ceive it could have to go up to the coun­cil,’’ he said.

Mr Kalms said if this was the case it was un­likely to go to the coun­cil un­til Fe­bru­ary next year given there was no Jan­uary coun­cil meet­ing.
