Petition request"We, the undersigned, respectfully request the City of Stirling to cease the development application of a Child Care Centre on Lot 27, House Number 366, Main Street, Balcatta. Building a Child Care Centre on this block has many safety risks, such as young children being close to Main Street; additional traffic congestion on Main Street throughout the day, especially in the peak hours; limited parking on site; and the potential of the centre extending operating hours past the proposal times. Residents surrounding this block will have their security and privacy jeopardized. By signing this petition you're helping a 'residential area' remain 'residential' and not supporting a Child Care Centre to be built so close to a main road and private quiet properties."
