Beachside Park Cafe


The current Approved Burns Beach Structure Plan includes provision for a Lunch Bar and Restaurant/Cafe Precinct (at the Beachside Park off Beachside Drive).

PEET proposed a 163-seat single-storey café at Beachside Park with indoor and covered alfresco dining areas. PEET submitted an Application to CoJ, and this was approved by CoJ Council (with conditions) on 26th June 2018.

2020 Community Consultation

The approval granted by CoJ in June 2018 expired. In October 2020 CoJ initiated Community Consultation for a modified PEET proposal. The architectural design is substantially changed from the previously approved application. The size of the Cafe is not substantially changed. The planned patron capacity is 163 (85 indoor & 78 outdoor). There is provision for 65 street parking pays within 200m of the Cafe.

Attached below are documents that show the modified cafe design and the existing/proposed car parking bays.

After the Community Consultation and consideration by CoJ, these amendments were approved.

2021 Community Consultation

PEET has submitted an application to CoJ for the operating hours of the Cafe to be extended in order to facilitate dinner service and to make the proposed Cafe commercially viable.

The operation hours would be changed from "06:00hrs to 20:00hrs" to "06:00hrs to 22:00hrs".


At CoJ Council Meeting, on 17th August 2021, this application was approved.

The property was sold on 5th November 2021 and the new owners now have 24 months to build the cafe as per the approved plans.
