Popular Trigg cafe Yelo won a lengthy legal battle against the City of Stirling.
What a joke. The council wasted $33,000 trying to put a small family business bankrupt. Why didn’t they just send a couple of hard working parking inspectors to do their job over a couple of weekends? Would have been a lot cheaper. I think the ratepayers who complained should cover the costs.

Good to hear the cafe can keep serving great coffee and food in a friendly environment. Maybe Stirling Council can now put some of its time and effort into getting the Carine Open Space Clubrooms refurb finished.

Great news and win. The City of Stirling, like most councils, has rules and when it suits them they don’t have rules. We need more of these cases for the council to think twice.

I wonder if the City of Stirling would have even bothered to read the letter if the complaint had been made in a less affluent area?
– PAT O’CONNELL
Great news, I am glad for the owners. Business is not easy at the best of times and to be successful and pull through something like this without giving up is fantastic. Well done.

Well done Yelo. Why was it their fault for the way people park their cars anyway? Now sue City of Stirling for their stupidity.
