COUN­CIL NOD FOR ‘PARKLET’

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

VAN’S Cafe will get an al fresco din­ing “parklet” serv­ing din­ers in a car bay-sized area on the pave­ment in Napoleon Street, Cottes­loe. At their De­cem­ber 15 meet­ing, Cottes­loe coun­cil­lors ap­proved the ap­pli­ca­tion’s re­quest for a “mini park” to re­vi­talise the street. In pub­lic com­ment, busi­ness lobby Pro­cott sup­ported the pro­posal but busi­nesses Cim­balino and Mo­tion Life­style ad­ja­cent to Van’s said the parklet would use a valu­able park­ing space. How­ever, coun­cil staff said planter boxes would cre­ate the din­ing space, which would not need plan­ning ap­proval be­cause it was a tem­po­rary struc­ture.
