FREDERICK SAMSON PARK NOT FOR SALE

Fremantle Councillor Sam Wainwright is not happy with the scare campaign his election opponent Catherine Hammond is engaging in.

The Hilton Ward Councillor reported to Fremantle Council yesterday that Hammond had claimed in a flyer she has distributed that Council wants to sell off Frederick Samson Park and the Samson Recreation Centre for development.

Wainwright, who also reported the beat-up, authorised by Fremantle Society president John Dowson, to the Electoral Commission, stated there has never been a suggestion at Fremantle Council to sell of Frederick Samson Park and that it is crown land anyway vested in the City.

Wainwright conceded that the ten-year budget has a suggestion of selling off a part of the land the recreation centre is built on, but that this is unlikely to happen any time soon, and would require State approval as the land title use is for recreational only.
