Yanchep café decision to improve user experience
Published Thursday, 22nd September 2016
The City’s decision to reject all submissions for a long-term lease of the Yanchep Café premises was focused on improving the long-term user experience for both local residents and visitors.
Council voted last week to seek a shorter-term lease for potential operators, as well as investigating “pop up” food outlets or van providers to service the locality over the coming months.
“We are aiming to lift the user experience at Yanchep for locals and visitors alike,” according to the City’s Director Corporate Strategy and Performance, Noelene Jennings.
“The City has made a multi-million dollar investment in social infrastructure for Yanchep, such as the new surf club and sports ovals, and the café premises will now be part of our strategic planning for progressive connected communities.
“That’s why we will explore alternative lease and food options while we conduct a review of the site and existing building and report to Council as part of the mid-year budget review in January,” she said.
Last week’s Council decision called for a strategic review of the Brazier Road site, which includes the existing building. There is also the potential for redevelopment to include the old surf club site.
The new $3.9m Yanchep Surf Club is currently under construction but does not contain facilities for the commercial sale of food or drinks.
