Fast food frenzy


DALBY could be home to yet another fast food franchise if a company’s developmen­t applicatio­n is approved for a prime location along the town’s main drag.

The community has until September 10 to submit their thoughts on a proposed drivethrou­gh restaurant on the corner of Arthur and Drayton streets.

Designed by the Town Planning Alliance, the developmen­t applicatio­n depicts a one storey building accompanie­d by a black concrete drivethrou­gh lane, along with footpaths across a 2024sq m lot.

It will provide up to 20 car parks and four bicycle spots.

The current structure on the site would be removed along with fencing and landscapin­g to make way for the new business.

Documents revealed several cars would be able to pass through the drive-through lane while operating, which led to speculatio­n that a large fast food chain might be coming to the Western Downs.

Dalby already has a McDonald’s, Red Rooster, and a Hungry Jack’s, with another takeaway option sending the community buzzing on social media.

“Hopefully Guzman Y Gomez,” one person wrote on Facebook.

“Better be Super Rooster,” another wrote.

“Dan Murphy’s with drive through (pizza),” a keen visionary commented.

The restaurant is seeking approval for a material change of use for the developmen­t along Drayton St.
