I went and had a look at the recent work the City of Fremantle did at the Gilbert Fraser Oval grandstand in North Fremantle and all I can say is that there is a lot of metal fencing.

Not at all sure that I like it.

Also completed and ready to finally hand over to the ENKEL group is the former Naval Stores building at Cantonment Hill.

    Wonder what the heritage officer’s thoughts are? Am I allowed to install this style fencing on my heritage listed home now?

    Nup. Doesn’t sit well. Looks like temporary safety fence. Wooden balustrades should be the go for this now less than dignified ‘old lady’

    Looks like they’ve plonked on the temporary fencing you see at sporting events or on building sites. Building deserves better.

    great to see the upgrade and while timber balustrade would have been a nice touch what we have is a very serviceable and easy to maintain material and sits well with this grand lady

    Yes that was my reaction also when I saw it yesterday, Lionel.
