Ap­proval for new tav­ern

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS - Bryce Luff

A NEW tav­ern will be built in Yangebup af­ter the project was given the green light by Cockburn Coun­cil.

The $5 mil­lion de­vel­op­ment, to be built on the north­east­ern side of the Beel­iar Road and Durnin Av­enue round­about, will in­clude a restau­rant, bars, al­fresco ar­eas, a bot­tle shop and 185 car bays.

The tav­ern is backed by the team be­hind the Quarie Bar and Brasserie in Ham­mond Park.

Dur­ing a dep­u­ta­tion to the coun­cil on Thurs­day, de­vel­oper Daniel Cor­reia said they were look­ing to repli­cate the suc­cess at a new site.

“It’s a for­mula we think works in this en­vi­ron­ment and is sup­ported by the lo­cal res­i­dents in Ham­mond Park,” he said. “It’s a fam­i­ly­fo­cused en­vi­ron­ment.”

A to­tal of 117 sub­mis­sions were made dur­ing last month’s con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod. Of those, 43 ob­jected and 74 were sup­port­ive.

A pe­ti­tion ob­ject­ing to the pro­posal was signed by 65 peo­ple.

Ten of those sig­na­tures came from peo­ple liv­ing more than one kilo­me­tre from the de­vel­op­ment site and 15 were gath­ered from peo­ple out­side Cockburn.

Ob­jec­tions cen­tred on the like­li­hood of in­creased traf­fic, crime, drunk­en­ness and noise, as well as the prox­im­ity to homes, the lo­cal pri­mary school and child­care cen­tre.

A dep­u­ta­tion by two lo­cal res­i­dents re­it­er­ated those points, adding that there are al­ready a num­ber of liquor out­lets along Beel­iar Drive.

Oth­ers in sup­port of the project said it would be a great ad­di­tion for Yangebup and would mean less need to travel out­side the area to visit a sim­i­lar venue.

In a re­port to coun­cil­lors on Thurs­day, a City of­fi­cer said the project should be backed be­cause it was com­pat­i­ble with lo­cal zon­ing and town plan­ning scheme pro­vi­sions.

“It is also con­sid­ered that the de­vel­op­ment will con­trib­ute to the greater sus­tain­abil­ity of the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment through a stronger sense of com­mu­nity and lo­cal iden­tity,” the re­port reads.
