Kelp Bar was a concept trialled by Joanna Robertson, director of Kidogo Arthouse on Bathers Beach in Fremantle. Kelp Bar was a sunset beach bar operating out of the painting studio at Kidogo Arthouse overlooking Bathers Beach in Fremantle.
In two years of trying Joanna is still being blocked from within the City of Fremantle from even submitting a planning application for the resurrection of Kelp Bar to be considered.
Additional toilets need to be allowed to be built at Kidogo before a bar license can be considered. The Mayor does not like where heritage will agree the toilets should go, and heritage will not agree to what the Mayor thinks should happen at Kidogo - so precisely zero progress has been made in progressing plans to get Kelp Bar to happen.
How desperately sad…
Hopefully there are some Councillors in Fremantle who support the very simple, heritage approved toilet designs and with their lobbying, and your lobbying, of other councillors Joanna can be given the green light to actually submit a planning application...
If any of you have advice for Joanna please email (email@example.com)
If you are friends with any of the City of Fremantle Councillors, please ask them to support Kidogo's proposal.
To see the proposed, very simple plans contact Kidogo (93359636)
Even though Kelp only made a brief appearance, this is definitely one of my favourite spots for a sunset beverage, great atmosphere and live local music... Seriously what the hell FCC? Get ur act together & approve the facilities before you lose even more revenue elsewhere... Support local businesses!
Love this spot - bring back the Freo vibe we've been missing for years!!! We regularly visit Sweetlips on the weekend and would be great to have a bar nearby - I use a wheelchair and many places are inaccessible in Freo...
