Having lived in this street for 10 years, I was originally aware that current warehouse usages over time would become residential buildings and light industrial may remain. If one refers to Town Planning Scheme No 26 which covers the East Perth Redevelopment, what was preferred uses for the "Boans" precinct was Culture and Creative Industry and Residential. These preferred usages did not include dining and entertainment and the sale of the land was on the premise that the area would remain as these preferred uses.

To now introduce a Micro Brewery/Restaurant/function centre in an area already struggling with on street parking issues in a predominantly residential area without formal advisement of the neighbouring properties that I am aware of, flouts the very reason for community consultation when such land uses are contemplated for change.

We strongly object to the introduction of a noisy late night entertainment venue in a quiet predominantly residential precinct. If we bought in Northbridge, we would know what we where getting, but we did not; we bought into the East Perth Redevelopment vision where restaurants, retail, residential and light industry were clearly identified. Any contemplation of this type of land use should only be considered with proper community consultation, and this has been non evident thus far.
