PLANS for a microbrewery, restaurant and chalets north of Perth are out for public consultation.

The Shire of Gingin has invited feedback until December 5 on the proposal, prepared by consultant Harley Dykstra, for 558 Caraban Road, Caraban.

The proposed tourist development would include a brewery with cellar door tasting, restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating for up to 200 people and three two-bedroom self-contained chalets.

“The brewery will produce craft beers, intending to be sourced entirely from local produce,” the application said.

“The approval of this use will enable the landowners to establish a premises as a tourist destination and provide a service that doesn’t currently exist in the broader locality.”

The development would sit on a portion of a privately owned property fronting the Moore River and the remainder of the property would continue to be used for rural purposes.

The plan also proposed rainwater tanks, murals, playground and 84 parking bays, including four caravan and four bus bays.
