PALACE ARCADE ENTERTAINMENT FOR FREMANTLE

IMG_0117

 

If Fremantle Council approves the change of use for the former LAPA Brazilian barbeque, next to the National Hotel in High Street, to tavern, the venue will become a Palace Arcade electronic machines entertainment venue.

The new tavern, if approved, would also be allowed to sell takeaway liquor, which would no doubt cater for the many backpackers in the West End of Fremantle, once the Western Australian and Australian borders are re-opened.

The application by Silverleaf Investments will go before council this Wednesday.

Posted in city of fremantle, entertainment, gardening, green space, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on August 21, 2019

 

 

Driving through White Gum Valley it looks like there is a Valley Verges project going on with many home owners planting verge gardens and even vegetable gardens.

They are assisted by the City of Fremantle’s Verge Preparation Assistance Scheme which offers free mulch and street trees, subsidised native plants and expert advise.

It’s looking great already!
