Pakenham Street development proposal

 

EARLY WARNING FOR HERITAGE PROTECTION!!!!!

The absolutely inappropriate huge five-storey development for Fremantle’s Pakenham Street and the Customs Building is on the Fremantle Council agenda for this coming Wednesday.

It needs to be refused and it needs to be made clear to the WA Development Assessment Panel(JDAP) that the Fremantle community will not compromise on the preservation of the historic West End!

I understand that the C0F officers’ recommendation is for a robust refusal of the proposal, but we need to be there in force to tell our Elected Members that this is a rubbish proposal. It’s not only too heigh and too big for the heritage precinct, but it is also very ugly.

I will publish more about this once the agenda becomes available on-line at 4pm today, and when I have read all the details of the Fremantle Design Advisory Panel and planning staff.

SAY NO TO RUBBISH DEVELOPMENT IN FREO’S HERITAGE WEST END PRECINCT!

    This indeed is utmostly objectionable – the existing, already bad, an example of facadism amplified by the out-of- place and out-of-character upwards extensions dwarfing what’s left of the authentic heritage buildings. I am sure this proposal violates every scheme provision and heritage policy applicable to the just state listed West End, but indeed it would be important to show the Council that the community (at least its aware members) supports the unequivocal refusal of such inappropriate development in the historic heart of Fremantle.
