Latest on Mandurah Foreshore redevelopment.

The City of Mandurah have chosen Left Coast Leisure Group Pty Ltd (LCLG), operators of Shelter Brewing Co in Busselton, as the preferred proponent of the site, currently leased by King Carnival.

LCLG has proposed a “family-friendly, inclusive and accessible entertainment precinct for locals and visitors, activated from day to night, seven days per week, while creating accessible and welcoming venues that take in the incredible waterfront views”.×150.jpeg” alt=”Mandurah Foreshore Redevelopment” width=”300″ height=”150″ />

New attractions and experiences will include a family-friendly hospitality venue and microbrewery, a naturally contoured 18-hole mini golf course, a club house and café and a chocolate factory. The proposed development will be entirely Western Australian owned and operated, creating 200 jobs during construction.

Once built it will employ about 400 locals in a range of jobs from casual to management along with apprenticeships.

Director of LCLG Zeb Packard-Hair said sustainability, the natural attractions, families, locals and visitors were front of mind when planning the redevelopment.

“We’re excited at this opportunity and can’t wait to see it progress over the coming months and years,” Mr Packard-Hair said.

“Once the City of Mandurah has completed their eight-week community consultation process and received feedback, we’ll be able to finalise our agreement with them.”

At Tuesday’s Council meeting, it was decided the plans for the commercial site and the Western Foreshore Leisure Precinct plans would be released for public consultation.

Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams said residents are encouraged to have their say via the Mandurah Matters website, with the eight-week feedback period ending on July 26.

“We’re simply asking for the community’s feedback on the proposal, we want to hear from people about what they like about the proposal, what their concerns are and how they feel this fits with the vision for Mandurah,” Mayor Williams said.

Mr Williams said there was a long way to go before any development begins and they have given the owner of King Carnival an 11-month extension.

“We have extended the King Carnival lease through until April next year and we will review that again at that time to determine what the next steps are,” he said.
