Stirling Council voted in favour of allowing Kailis a rent-free period of 12 months to enable the company to demolish parts of the building and make upgrades.

The proposed changes will go ahead if no other party submits a response to the proposed sub-lease and it is also subject to ministerial approval.

Stirling asset management manager Abena Altrams said the City would provide $20,000 toward the project as it would enhance the area.

‘To facilitate a significant investment of the tenant’s private capital into a prestigious facility available to members of the public, including tourists, the City is willing to contribute a maximum of no more than $20,000 towards ensuring that the gas, electricity and water supplying public infrastructures outside of the cafe are to acceptable standards,’ she said.

Ms Altrams said the business would revitalise the coast for local residents and tourists.

Statutory and other requirements must now be complied with before the proposed sub-lease can be concluded, including the advertisement of the sub-lease for public comment.

Ms Altrams said the City had not recently received any other formal application to sub-lease the cafe property.
