The food and drink outlet would be part of the Stage 3 of an existing development and will be single-storey and will have a 6m maximum building height.

The DA, in fact, has already been given the green light, but the developer has requested to change the application for Stage 3 to add a Starbucks cafe within the approved mixed-use development.

The subject site is located at 2 Linkfield Connection Road, Brendale. Both Stage 1 and Stage 2 have been constructed onsite and remain unchanged. 

Stage 1 was dedicated for a 200sqm service station whilst Stage 2 was for a 2,080sqm showroom, and food outlet/shop/commercial services. The approved use for Stage 3 was for a food outlet, shop, and commercial services.

Designed by Thomson Adsett, changes include redesigning the food and drink outlet, amending the car park design, and reconfiguring the overall layout. It will have a single-lane drive through, which could accommodate 10 cars in a queuing. 

The applicant has also sought for reduction in car parking spaces by one space for a total of 48 spaces in Stage 3.

“The proposed development has amended the design of the Food and Drink Outlet in Stage 3 to orientate the building to a more attractive viewpoint when viewed from Linkfield Road and Scouts Crossing Road,” the planning documents read.

The Brendale Service Centre is due for completion by April 2023.
