CAN FREMANTLE AFFORD ONE PLANET DEVELOPMENT?

Posted in city of fremantle, development, local government, property by freoview on February 27, 2017

The sale and development of the City of Fremantle Knutsford Street depot site is a bit of a conundrum for the City as ratepayers will rightly expect the best financial return for it, especially in light of the City’s very tight financial situation.

Council wants specific sustainability outcomes under the One Planet Living Framework, but experts indicate that might have a negative impact on the value of the property.

There are additional costs involved for developers and Landcorp, and they cite the WGV sustainable development and others as examples for that.

There are questions if the property market can bear the additional costs of OPLF development and still be competitive in a very tight residential market.

It is essential that Fremantle Council is totally transparent about this with the community as we can’t really afford to lose a few million dollars for ideological reasons.

WHITE GUM VALLEY WVG PROGRESS

Posted in architecture, building, city of fremantle, development by freoview on December 15, 2016

 

The WGV Baugruppen demonstration project at the former Kim Beazley School site in White Gum Valley is well underway.

The innovative sustainable medium density residential site in Fremantle will be using renewable green energy and aims to create an affordable community.

I took a couple of photos there on Wednesday to show a bit of the progress of the development.
