Outlaws no more

CHRIS THOMSON

The Outlaws bikie den in Port Kennedy is now dead – according to City of Rockingham officials.

In February, oneperth.com.au gave readers an exclusive sneak peak inside the now-defunct clubhouse as it looked before authorities shut it down in April last year.

Plans lodged for the city to approve a “motorcycle detailing and storage and party promotions showroom” were considered bogus by the city’s planners.

The planners considered the real intention of the development application was to rekindle the clubhouse. They recommended the “showroom” be refused.

However, a planning inspection on April 19 this year confirmed club emblems had been removed and painted over. Club paraphernalia and a double, glass-door bar fridge had also been removed.

A long bar, pool table, two booths, two TVs, fire place and lounges remained.

The planners now advise that the main problem with approving the “showroom” would be that it could easily be converted back to a clubhouse.

Lawyers for the property’s owner – a company based in Launceston, Tasmania known by its Australian Company Number of 069 744 823 Pty Ltd – have assured the warehouse will not be used as a clubhouse.

The planners have now recommended that the “showroom” be approved, with a raft of conditions including that the bar be removed.
