Beacy forum


There are two important meetings on next Tuesday evening, August 30, and it is disappointing that they could not be coordinated better as we will have to make a choice to go to one of them as they both start at the same time of 7 pm.

The meeting at the Local Hotel in South Fremantle at 7 pm will see a city manager showing the plans for the upgrade of South Terrace from Douro Road to South Street. This is very important as the area is becoming more and more popular with new cafes and restaurants opening and new development in the pipeline.

Peak hour traffic also has become and issue along South Terrace, Douro Road and Marine Parade and needs to be addressed.

The second meeting is at the Hilton Bowling Club where the four candidates for the vacant Beaconsfield Ward will be scrutinised by the local community. It is very important to consider that whoever gets elected will be voting on all Fremantle issues, not just the ones in the Beacy Ward, so asking more general questions about the future of Fremantle, urban infill, density, protection of heritage, supporting local businesses, traffic and parking, etc. are all important.
