Construction has now been completed on the Ampol service station and car wash development located at 325A Nepean Highway, Frankston.

Designed by Voda for their client Jasbe Petroleum, the service station opened on Wednesday 17 November 2021.

Ratio’s planning were engaged as part of the project team in 2017 to assist in the pre-planning application and engagement stage, in addition to overseeing the granting of a planning permit via a Council meeting.

The planning team negotiated the historic constraints of the site and challenges of establishing a service station and associated car wash development on a key strategic site where a ‘gateway development’ was encouraged by planning policy.

The team further managed a difficult Council process during which Councillors opposed the delivery of another service station to the area. Moreover, the site was heavily constrained by easements and title restrictions which required careful navigation and dexterous problem-solving to surmount.
