Bibra Lake: Rebels Motorcycle Club promises no anarchy at new clubhouse

THUMPERRRR's picture

A CHAPTER of the Rebels Motorcycle Club based in Bibra Lake has promised there will be no Sons of |Anarchy-style drama over the coming two years after a recent win for the group.

The club is free to continue operating a clubhouse at a factory unit on Port Kembla Drive after the City of Cockburn approved a temporary “change of use” for the site on February 9.

It has been based there formally since 2014.

Fremantle chapter president Mark Rodgers said he was happy with the extension, even if it came after a drawn- out process involving State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) mediation.

“We’re all happy with the decision. It was a little annoying (going through SAT mediation),” he said.

“What concerned me the most is that they wasted ratepayers’ money questioning what was a permitted use.”

Cockburn councillors Steve Portelli and Lee-Anne Smith spoke out against the club at the council meeting, saying it presented a risk to residents and businesses.

Cr Portelli also put forward a failed alternative recommending that the City refuse the change of use.
