Provide café/kiosk/restaurant facilities which will provide more employment, increase business opportunities, a greater awareness for the City’s natural assets and a greater social and economic contribution by tourists.
Provide equitable community based facilities that acknowledges and provides for the lifestyle and alfresco culture of Western Australia.

The beachfront cafe development at Pinnaroo Point, Hillarys is a step closer after Joondalup Council endorsed a concept plan for a two-storey development at its December 2015 meeting.
The Council also agreed to progress negotiations for a draft land lease with Rock (WA) Pty Ltd – trading as White Salt – and draft Crown Land lease agreement with the Department of Lands, which would enable the project to proceed.
In recent months the City has worked with White Salt representatives to incorporate a second storey into the proposed development in order to optimise ocean views.
The concept design incorporates recycled sea containers over two levels, creating a connection between the building and the ocean, minimising the carbon footprint and maximising views.
The development will feature an upper level tapas lounge with an outdoor decking area, while the ground floor contains indoor and alfresco dining areas, a kiosk and space suitable for functions.
Joondalup Mayor Pickard said there were many benefits for the City in having an alfresco cafe development at Pinnaroo Point – regarded by many locals as one of the City’s most picturesque coastal locations.
“This outstanding development will not only benefit locals but will also advance the City’s ability to attract more visitors and tourists to our City and region for entertainment and socialising purposes,” he said.
“It will also provide more local employment and business opportunities and promote a greater awareness of the City’s natural assets.
“We look forward to working with all relevant stakeholders to progress this development in order to ensure ground is broken at the site as soon as possible.”
The final lease details will be subject to consideration by the Department of Lands and the approval of a Crown Land lease by the Minister for Lands.
BURNS BEACH CAFE/RESTAURANT – EXPRESSION OF INTEREST PROCESS
A new food and beverage development on the coast at Burns Beach is likely with Joondalup Council agreeing to proceed with a new Expression of Interest process for a café/restaurant facility.
A previous Expression of Interest process was placed on hold in 2014 pending the outcome of the Burns Beach Master Plan. The Burns Beach Master Plan has now been adopted by Council for the purposes of community consultation and therefore a new Expression of Interest process will be commenced.
