council decides on tecoma mcdonalds

stop press stop press stop press

Council votes unanimously to refuse the Tecoma McDonalds application at last night's meeting.

A bulky, blocky building contemplated in Tecoma, one that pays no respect to the existing hills character of the village - what an eyesore. On that section of Burwood Highway, where's there's already significant traffic issues, why would we encourage even greater intensity of traffic.

Congratulations to the community who came out in their droves (600 plus attended the meeting), you are passionate and engaged members of the wonderful Dandenong Ranges community.

Well done to the objectors who spoke against the application, you did your community proud and my particular thanks to my councillor colleagues on the Yarra Ranges Council who were compelled to support my refusal motion unanimously.

More details to come soon.

It was such a buzz last night and as I sat there I realised again why I live where I live.Thank you Sam for your well placed questions and for your unending support for this community. What a blast, people can and do make a difference. Our combined energies beat an almighty large american giant. Yeah!

Wouldn't it be great to see someone come up with a fantastic masterplan for use of this site so that we locals dont have to keep going through this every couple of years when some other greedy multinational sets their eyes on this piece of land.

Well done TVAG and you were marvellous Sam!
