What a gorgeous autumn day it is in Freo paradise this Monday!
Sunset Events is holding a public information session today at 5.30 about their new plans for the number one unit at J Shed at Fremantle’s historic Bathers Beach.
Sunset Events’ previous plans for an 850 patron tavern and 1,500 people outdoor music venue on the A-Class reserve were rejected by Fremantle Council, the W.A. Development Assessment panel and the State Administrative Tribunal, so it will be a tough task to get a smaller tavern approved as that use was deemed inappropriate for the reserve by the two state agencies.
The meeting is at the Drill Hall-former Fly by Night club- at Parry Street at 5.30 pm today, Monday March 27.
With so much development going on and planned for Fremantle I wonder if the City has diligently and professionally been recording streetscapes in the CBD so that there are historic photographic records of what the inner city looked like before the rejuvenating facelift it is receiving at the moment.
Adelaide, Queen Victoria, Cantonment, Beach streets and others in the area will have a totally new look in a few years from now and so will Kings Square and the Fremantle Oval precinct, so it is essential that good photos are taken, so that future generations will be able to compare old and new Freo.
It is a very important duty of government to record history so don’t neglect to do it City of Fremantle!
An interesting tiny hole in the wall cafe has opened in Pakenham Street just down the road from Bread in Common.
The Ghetto Blaster is open seven days a week and is challenging the BLINK cafe in High Street for being the smallest cafe in Fremantle.
The owner told me he will be applying to build a parklet outside the cafe and that would be the third one in that street if the City permits it.
Try it out!
Winter is approaching and that means the Sunday concerts at the Fremantle Arts Centre will stop soon, but today it is still on with MATHAS and his intricate lyrics and beats.
He will be joined by the new percussion-electro duo FEELS, so it should be a delightful afternoon in the lovely courtyard.
The cafe, pizza bar and drinks bar are open and so are the galleries.
Beautiful early light made an interesting photo of the Fremantle Port D-Shed and parts of a Chinese ship at berth behind it this morning.
