The council accepted the petition with 62 signatures at its Tuesday 27 November meeting.

The signatories raised concerns regarding the impact to surrounding properties, safety hazards, dust and noise pollution at 102A Killara Road.

They also raised concerns with regard to damage to Killara Road, other nearby roads and the environmental impacts to the site, adjoining land and the Stringybark Creek.

The council will consider the petition.
