Mandurah's Western Foreshore could soon be the home of a microbrewery, mini golf course, chocolate factory and café.

Mandurah Council will consider whether to release the plans, which includes the $23 million proposal, for public advertising at their next council meeting on May 28.

The development would be built on the site currently leased by King Carnival.

Mayor Rhys Williams said from public feedback over the years it was clear the Western Foreshore commercial space was in need of investment which led them to an Expression of Interest process for the iconic waterfront site.

“We received seven proposals, all of which featured a food and beverage offering. In this market, the food and beverage components are an important drawcard in creating the foot traffic for the other commercial elements to work. This is similar to what’s been done at foreshores in Busselton, South Perth and Fremantle, to name a few," Mayor Williams said.

The City's draft Western Foreshore Leisure Precinct Plan also includes public works that will see new public jetties, an all-abilities paddle launch site, a market square, works to enhance the Mandurah War Memorial and activating underneath the bridge with an amphitheatre space, plus a further commercial opportunity for on-water recreation.

“The Western Foreshore has always been an important place for our community to come together,” Mayor Williams said.

“We now have an opportunity to take this space to the next level, plus offer an initial 25-year term for the waterfront commercial space which would provide a variety of options for people to enjoy and create local jobs and training at the same time.”

If the Western Foreshore Leisure Precinct Plan and the Western Foreshore Commercial Site Business Plan are adopted for advertising at the Council meeting, public feedback will be open for a period of eight weeks via mandurahmatters.com.au
