Cahill Park café get greenlight

Plans for the construction of a $2.2 million cafe and amenities block at Cahill Park in Wolli Creek have been approved by the Bayside Local Planning Panel.

The development application for the site was submitted by Bayside Council, with an independent planning consultant engaged to assess the application to avoid any conflict of interests.

The proposal was part of the 2018 Masterplan for Cahill Park which identified a proposed cafe and amenities block for the site.

The plans include a cafe with indoor and outdoor seating for 80 patrons, a kitchen, storage and delivery area, a public toilet block and a new footpath and landscaping.

The cafe will be constructed as a cold shell and the council will ask for Expressions of Interest from potential operators once the DA is determined.

The café’s hours of operation will be limited to Monday to Saturday 6am to 10pm and Sundays 6am to 8pm.

Funding for the $2.5 million project has come from the state government's Stronger Communities Fund.
