RUMOURS to the contrary are just that, rumours.
The South Gippsland Shire Council still has
a live application for a service station and asso -
ciated services to be established on part of the
old saleyards site.
The issue became the topic of discussion on
the Korumburra Community Noticeboard last
week when Korumburra resident Karen Pen-
rose posted the following message: “Just curi-
ous - does anyone know what happened to the
application for a service station with restaurant
on the Melbourne side of town? The application
was mentioned in Council updates in the local
papers pre-council elections.”
The post received plenty of feedback. Here’s
some of it:
• It’s all happening at Leongatha apparently, I
believe, is what I was told now, this shire starts
in Leongatha and ends in Leongatha.
• I know some local trades have seen plans,
doesn’t mean anything though.
• Yes there’s one going where the old Salvos
were in Leongatha opposite SG Hire but have
heard it may still happen in Burra but I’m sure
that will be after Leongatha lol.
• Looks like the shire is currently trying to
sell part of the site to the developer. They have
received a planning application to develop the
petrol station at the corner of Sanders Street.
See linked doc (SGSC agenda/minutes Decem-
ber 14, 2016 page 94).
• So many plans for Burra, but I can’t see it
• It would be great for Korumburra to have
more shops here add to local jobs. I so would
love a charcoal chicken just saying ha ha.
• The restaurant will be a hungry jacks! I’ve
At the Wednesday, December 14 council meet-
ing the shire council put in progress a plan to sell
a small ‘council reserve’ at the corner of Sanders
Street and the South Gippsland Highway to the
would-be developers of the service station.
A spokesman for the shire said the applica-
tion for the development was still live but there
was a process that had to be gone through for
the sale of the land.
The community is allowed to comment on the
proposed disposal of the land and a final deci-
sion will be taken at the next ‘ordinary’ council
meeting on February 22.
The application for a new petrol station in Le-
ongatha, on the corner of Shingler Street and the
South Gippsland Highway is a separate application.
New service station for
Korumburra on agenda
A PHILLIP Island chef caught in possession of
cannabis and also with driving a manual vehicle on
an auto-only licence, made a concerted plea in the
Korumburra Magistrates’ Court last week, to avoid
conviction so he could travel overseas for work.
According to police prosecutor, Senior Constable
Ange Wilken-Eilers, Joe Jeffrey-Gilder of Cowes
was picked up by police driving a manual Toyota
van at Laceby near Wangaratta in April last year.
After producing a probationary licence, with
an automatic condition on it, police noticed the
“strong smell of cannabis” coming from inside.
The offender produced a bong and a small quan-
tity of cannabis and was taken to the Wangaratta
Police Station for interview.
The 24 year old told Magistrate Steven Raleigh
that he was hoping to avoid a conviction because of
work offers in Japan and America which may be
jeopardised by a drug conviction.
Mr Raleigh noted that he’d been given a chance
like that before but ultimately agreed to a good
behaviour bond, without conviction on the drugs
charges, with a $400 payment to the court fund
and a $200 fine for driving a manual car.
