The City of Bunbury council has approved the proposed construction of a vehicle spray booth on Rose Street in the CBD.
In Tuesday, October 17’s council meeting, the council voted 10/2 in favour of Line-X’s development proposal.
The decision called for the spray booth to be classified as one part (incidental use) of the showroom’s predominant use.
The facility must comply with development plans and not cause any adverse affect to the location.
Line-X’s spray-painting, sand-blasting and motor vehicle repair operations are not permitted.
The company’s spray booth operations have been restricted to three hours per day within the following times:
- Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm
- Saturdays, 8am to 12pm
Meanwhile, the workshop areas must remain closed while spray booth equipment is in operation.
The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and the City of Bunbury must also be notified before operation can begin.
Bunbury City Church owner and operator John Barnes addressed council on October 17, expressing his concerns for his patrons’ health.
Line-X chief executive officer John Lewis also spoke at the meeting, confirming the company would adhere to the City of Bunbury’s guidelines.
