The 7-Eleven plans include a 193.5sq m single storey, 4.6m tall convenience store, cool room, storeroom, office and amenities.

The fuel deck will be covered with a 5.5m tall roof and feature three double sided petrol bowsers catering for six vehicles.

The greenfield site will also feature five underground fuel tanks ranging from 30,000L to 50,000L for unleaded, premium unleaded, E10 and diesel.

A 1500L rainwater tank will also be used to supply one of the onsite toilets.

Under the plans the service station will have two 8m tall illuminated signs with 7-Eleven and Mobil branding along with red LED fuel prices on Wyong and Ibis roads.

The service station will operate 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

The plans for the KFC include a 21-seat restaurant and drive through, 11 parking spaces, a 25000L rainwater tank to be used for the toilets and a 10m tall pole with a 2m KFC branded bucket at the top.

Its proposed opening hours are 10am-10pm Sunday to Thursday and 10am-11pm on Friday and Saturday.

“The proposed service station and takeaway food and drink premises will provide compatible uses in the B5 (zoning) that support and do not detract from the adjoining Tuggerah Business Park, Super Centre, and bulky goods precinct, as well as catering for the needs of local residents and people travelling along Wyong Rd,” the development application (DA) states.

The DA’s traffic assessment states the KFC and 7-Eleven “would not adversely impact on the local and state road network”.

The plans state besides the large signs, the restaurant and service station will be set back 15m and screened from Wyong Rd by large trees which will remain in place, with another 55 trees planted on the site to offset those cleared to make way for the development.

The DA states the project will create about 80-100 jobs during construction and about 40-50 ongoing jobs.

It comes after the Mariners lodged plans earlier this month to fast track its 126-room, 10-storey hotel in time to host teams in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

It also comes after $29.8 million plans to turn the overflow car park and vacant land opposite the Tuggerah Super Centre into a sprawling retail centre with fast food and drive through restaurants was deferred by the Local Planning Panel in June.
