16th December 2021


Spinifex is proud to release for public comment the final plans for the Spinifex Ale House North Beach Small Bar.


"The proposed small bar is expected to significantly benefit the local community, offering a greater range of services and thus amenity and a new aesthetically pleasing development all in a walkable and accessible location. Combined with the existing adjacent local centre development to the south, the proposal will deliver a vibrant local community social hub"


Development Details


The proposed development is for a new Small Bar use. It is designed specifically to meet the requirements of Spinifex, which is proposing to operate our flagship Spinifex Ale House from the premises.


The details of the proposal are summarised below:

• A total public area (indoor and alfresco) of 273m2, comprising 164m2 at Ground Level and 109m2 on Level 1.

• A ground floor patron area that includes a west-facing alfresco dining area with sweeping views of the ocean and coastal environs and a garden at the rear of the site. Surrounding the patron area are bar, café, and food preparation rooms and facilities.


• Internal stairs and a lift provide access to the first-floor mezzanine deck area which has access to a west-facing balcony with sweeping views of the ocean and coastal environs.

The first-floor mezzanine is serviced by a bar, food preparation area, and ablution facilities.


• A basement store area, accessible via a lift and stairs.

24 bicycle parking spaces located in a dedicated store in the northeastern part of the site adjacent to the waste store. This area is accessed from a dedicated service walkway along the northern site boundary which provides access from West Coast Drive.


• Public community facilities including public parking for 8 additional bicycles in the West Coast Drive road reserve.

• Landscaping – including a 91sqm rear garden comprising a deep soil area and five medium-sized trees.



• Install two on-street car parking bays in the verge that sits in front of the neighboring property to the north, at No. 247 West Coast Drive. Proposed Use Subject to obtaining the necessary approvals from the City, the landowners intend to proceed to immediately construct the proposed development.


The development will complement the existing hospitality offering at the adjacent local center, collectively providing a café, restaurant, and bar, all of which are currently in low supply in the local area.
