Carl’s Jr gets final approval
CARL’S JR has been given the final tick of approval by Rockhampton Regional Council to add to the city’s fast-food strip.
The American burger chain will construct a new drivethrough outlet on the corner of George St and Archer St, with a carpark opposite George Lane.
Carl’s Jr will be the latest fast-food chain for the precinct, which already has Red Rooster, KFC, Baskin-Robbins, Subway and McDonald’s outlets.
A vacant property will be demolished to make way for the venue.
Development conditions have addressed concerns about light, noise and security infringements on surrounding properties through landscaping and fencing.
The developer has also agreed to pay for louvred awnings to be installed over the windows of adjoining properties to increase privacy.
