S.C.R.A.M and Seafordia

To get serious for a second, this is my little foray into political territory for a minute, entertain me.

This proposal by McDonalds to open a 24 hour restaurant on Nepean Highway is a topic of controversy around my little area.  I like the rest of the area, do not oppose development as a whole.  With one restaurant in Seaford already, why require a second?

Nepean Highway is a busy road and I know they will say that they are catering to demand, but guys, there’s already a restaurant further down the road.

My objection is environmental.

The site is located in between the gorgeous foreshore of Seaford Beach and the Kananook Creek. I’ve read of plans to prevent damage to the beach and creeks, I’ve seen what McD has done to other regions that have one introduced.  Any environmental plan will fail because people are lazy. Simple.

I can picture this, family parks in the already at capacity Woolworths (across the road from the site), walks across the busy Seaford Road to McD, buys a cheap (not to mention sugar laden meal – that’s a whole other topic) and wanders across to the beach.

This beach doesn’t have bins on the sand, family eats dinner and cleans up.  Forgets to pick up a chip packet and a burger wrapper. Gets left behind, blowing along the sand; picked up by a bird, kicked by a kid, carried into the water.  Imagine this happening multiple times every day.

Then there is the creek. I can picture the ducks swimming in a sludge of litter, paddlers in their kayaks navigating through it.  No thanks.

This is why I don’t want McD in my neighbourhood.

I hope Frankston council and eventually VCAT see the madness and reject the proposal.
