Yelo Cafe has being prosecuted for allegedly breaching its planning conditions.

The owner of popular Trigg cafe Yelo will have to wait until May 22 before learning the fate of his business after a trial probing a potential breach of City of Stirling planning regulations wrapped up yesterday.

The council took the cafe to the Perth Magistrate’s Court claiming it defied conditions of planning approval granted in 2003, which allowed service of takeaway food and drink only and restricted seating to 20 people on the veranda.

A council investigation was launched after it received numerous complaints from neighbours about unsafe parking and congestion.

The beachside cafe has become a favourite for beachgoers since it opened seven years ago, with queues regularly snaking out the door.

Cafe owner Michael Pond faces a fine of up to $1 million if found guilty.
