A petition to keep the Yanchep Lagoon Cafe open.
The City of Wanneroo has reduced the access to and inconvenienced the general public’s use of the Yanchep Lagoon Car Park and facilities.
This has caused the Café to suffer financial pressure due to patrons turning away because of the limited and dangerous car parking conditions. The Café cannot sustain this financial burden much longer and will have to close leaving no refreshment facility at the Yanchep Lagoon with the loss of 16 local jobs.
The City of Wanneroo has increased the risk to the health and safety of the public due to large earth moving equipment and associated vehicles in the car park that should have been located elsewhere.
Damage to the car park surface by these vehicles has caused many trip hazards. There is now no turnaround area for vehicles (particularly coaches and delivery vehicles) which is causing dangerous reversing manoeuvers adding to the risk to pedestrians going to and from the beach, showers/toilets and Cafe.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge The City of Wanneroo to act now to prevent the forced closure of our Café at the Yanchep Lagoon.
The City of Wanneroo should honour its legal responsibilities regarding the lease held with the Lagoon Café.
The City of Wanneroo must desist from using the car park areas as a depot and repair the car park surface to a safe standard, all earth works should be removed from the unmade area to the east of the car park(overflow car park) so that it can again be safely used by the public.
