New Woolworths service station approved for James St

WOOLWORTHS hopes to have its third service station on James St opened for business in the next six months.

Toowoomba Regional Council's Development Assessment Panel today heard submissions for and against the Caltex Woolworths outlet, which is to be built on a vacant block opposite Clifford Gardens Shopping Centre.

7-Eleven representative John Taylor argued against the construction of a service station less than 40m from the existing 7-Eleven fuel outlet.

"Nowhere in Toowoomba have I found a situation where there are two service stations operating happily within 40 metres of each other on the same side of the road," Mr Taylor said.

"A second service station will be to the detriment of that (7-Eleven) business."

The panel, which consisted of Councillors Bill Cahill, Chris Tait and John Gouldson, noted Mr Taylor's concerns.

However, after hearing a response from the developers, they were satisfied the application was satisfactory and voted for its approval.
