Plans for a $13 million two-storey brewpub, tavern and accommodation will be presented at Tuesday’s Rockingham council meeting.

The venue is planned for the Kennedy Bay development in Port Kennedy where hundreds of lots recently went on sale.

The plans — by Longpoint Brewing Company — show a tavern with a main dining space, central bar, garden bar, beer garden, coffee kiosk, and upper-level function space with bar and veranda.

There will be ocean views from the tavern, which will be licensed for 500 patrons.

The brewery includes a brewing space visible from the street, a back-of-house space and cool room, and a tasting and merchandise area featuring the beers brewed on-site.

The nine short-stay accommodation units are made up of eight two-bedroom units and a three-bedroom unit.

There are also plans to build a 45-bay carpark behind the tavern and brewery.

City staff have recommended council approve the plans to be submitted to the Metro Outer Development Assessment Panel with a number of conditions.

The conditions include bike parking and approval for a piece of public artwork designed by a professional worth one per cent of the build costs ($130,000).

The accommodation includes nine short stay apartments.

Cr Brett Wormall will be excused from voting as Long Point Brewing Company, which is behind the venture, has the same company director as Wormall Group, which is Cr Wormall’s employer.

The developers will have four years to begin building once the plans are approved.
