Yelo Cafe: City of Stirling is itself to blame


Yelo Café is a favourite hang-out spot.

THE report in the July 26 edition that the City of Stirling is taking legal action against the popular Trigg cafe Yelo says it is in breach of planning approval and mentions unsafe parking, congestion and blocking of driveways.

However, the cited (parking) complaints are the responsibility of the City of Stirling.

As a neighbour of another nearby beachside eating establishment, this sounds familiar.

Through bitter experience, we know just how reluctant the City of Stirling is to enforce those rules and how keen it is to protect the interests of business over those of residents when it suits the City.

It is the City that should be sued for not enforcing its own regulations, not Yelo.

The cafe brings vibrancy and is a breath of fresh air in this area.

There is plenty of parking near Yelo, it just requires patrons to walk a little further. If the relevant authorities enforced the regulations there would not be a problem.
