SUNBURY will have four car washes within 800 metres following Hume Council's decision to approve the development of a car hand-wash and cafe in Horne Street.
At last week's meeting, the council approved the development despite concerns from people living nearby.
Cr Ann Potter was alone in voting against the development.
Rudi Onvlee, who lives in Cornish Street across from the development site, spoke against the development at the meeting.
"We live in the units across the road and we were concerned about the noise and extra traffic the car wash would cause.
"There's not enough parking at the proposed site, so people will park in the street in front of our houses.
"We only recently had the parking changed to four-hour zones, to stop commuters parking in front of our houses. Now we will have the same problems."
Mr Onvlee said even though the council had conducted a noise survey, he believed noise would still be a problem.
"On a weekend they open at 8.30am so when does it mean we get a sleep-in?"
He said many residents in the area didn't have a chance to have their say about the car wash.
"The notice of development went up over Christmas and we only just got home in time to see the notice. We rang the council and they extended the deadline to object. If you didn't do that you didn't know about it."
Cr Potter said her primary reason for opposing the development was that it would be allowed to operate from 8.30am on weekends.
"Having vacuum cleaners cranking up that early on a weekend would make me pretty upset if I lived next door."
