URBAN INFILL DEMANDS NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES

 

One of only two agenda items for the Strategic Planning and Transport Committee on Wednesday will be the community consultation paper put out by the WA Planning Commission-WAPC about noise in entertainment areas such as Northbridge, and the question if Fremantle Council should consider asking the WAPC to include the Fremantle CBD in the trial.

Medium and high density urban infill has seen a rise in complaints in recent years from residents who are not happy with the noise from entertainment venues and transport, but the entertainment industry believes it is not fair that the onus should only be on them and that it should be shared with developers of new residential buildings, which should be required to put better noise insulation measures, such as double glazing and thicker glass in their developments.

I remember many years ago that when the new apartments opposite Clancy’s were built that it only took one week before the first complaint was made about live music there, although the tavern had been having regular live concerts for many many years.

In Fremantle where we are going to see a glut of new residential apartments and hotel rooms, combined with new taverns and bars, it is essential to also protect the livelihood of the hospitality industry and demand new buildings that have better noise protection for their users.

Sally&George

 

Yes, there is still a bit of rain around and the wind is quite strong and crisp, but I am optimistic that it will all improve over the next few hours to ensure that we can all enjoy the Fremantle Arts Centre Sunday Music courtyard session.

Come and listen to the unique brand of ‘Americana’ and great vocals and free-style bluegrass of Sally&George, who came all they way from Nashville to perform in Freo.

The cafe, bar and pizza bar will all be open and the print award exhibition is still on display.

The concert is on from 2-4pm and is free!

FOOTY AND MUSIC FUN AT RECLINK CUP

Posted in charity, city of fremantle, community, football, music, Uncategorized by freoview on September 7, 2018

 

Reclink timeline

 

The RECLINK COMMUNITY CUP is on tomorrow-Saturday at Fremantle Oval, so head out there for an afternoon of footy fun and an evening of music, while raising money for charity.

Gates open at midday and close at 10pm, so make it a day out.

Expect to see media personalities and musicians battling it out on the footy field, where they will be joined by WA Treasurer Ben Wyatt, Federal Freo Labor MP Josh Wilson, and Freo Councillor Adin Lang.

The Kill Devil Hills will be playing from 5pm-5.40, so that’s pretty cool as well.

And Mayor Brad Pettitt will be the DJ. Just hoping our Greeny Mayor won’t just be playing a loop of Greensleeves all day. ; >)

WILL ST JOHN’S CHURCH BUY VICTORIA HALL?

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, fly by night club, Uncategorized by freoview on August 31, 2018

 

Interesting to read in the Fremantle Herald today that St John’s church is considering buying the historic Victoria Hall from the City of Fremantle.

According to the Chook St John’s would consider leasing the hall to the Fly by Night club.

I doubt though that the church will be as generous to the musicians club as the City of Fremantle has been. CoF waived over $ 80,000 in outstanding rent the Fly never paid.

Sounds like a great idea for the kids! The Stringbeans Orchestra will be at the North Fremantle Bowls Club every Thursday from 4 – 5.30pm.

It’s is for primary school students who play string instruments, or want to start it. Watch, listen and play!
