Plans for a new McDonalds Restaurant at Dakabin have hit a speed bump, with Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) requesting changes to the buildings design, orientation and road access.
The Council has set a deadline of 8 May for changes to the plans, to address “poor visual, physical and practical connectivity” between the proposed McDonalds building, and the existing Woolworths building on the corner of Old Gympie Road and Alma Road.
According to the MBRC’s online Development Application Tracker, Council has also asked the applicant to provide a plan for improved traffic access, due to concerns about excessive queuing on Old Gympie Road.
In addition, MBRC wants the applicants to ensure the proposed building, which will have an elevated corner position, presents a more visually appealing frontage from all directions.
If the applicant can provide council with satisfactory changes to the development application by 8 May, the amended application will then be considered, MBRC said.
McDonalds Australia said they are currently working through the application approval process with Council, and if approved, the new restaurant “will create 100 jobs during construction, and a further 120 jobs once operational.”
Pending approval, it will be fitted with modern decor and feature a McCafe, dual-lane drive-thru, dedicated partner delivery room and a PlayPlace for families to enjoy.
