A proposal to open a liquor store in the Treendale Industrial Park was deferred following last week’s Harvey Shire Council meeting.

Treendale Central Pty Ltd put forward a proposal to allow for two “additional uses” to include a child care centre and liquor store.

When the item came to the council, the company asked for more time in order to provide the council with additional information.

In a report to the council, manager of planning services Simon Hall recommended the proposal be refused.

A major factor surrounding his recommendation was that approving the amendment would set an “undesirable precedent” which could further erode the primary functions of the Treendale District Centre.

Other factors included the possibility that the additional uses would detract from the transitional nature of the Treendale Commercial Light Industrial Precinct Structure Plan area, which could in turn reintroduce uses that were removed in 2013.

The report highlighted concerns this could undermine the structural plans of the centre .
