Tomorrow could be a big day for Fremantle future as its seems one of Fremantles last voices of preserving what Fremantle was, could be in the future or will be, is about to have a vote on whether we have a committee that protects freos heritage or whether its gets another groups which seems to on side with the mayors development crew. Who look to run rough shot over the few policies left to protect Fremantles heritage.

The link below has a lot more detail and the heralds link also tells a story.

A Tale of Two Cities

Like most things if you want a reasonable outcome balance is important if one of Freo’s last organizations is taken over by the development crowd the balance is out the window. It likens to the expression leaving the fox in charge of the Hen house.

The argument that this development is need to kick start Freos revival I think is a bit lost as its supposed main stay or kick off was suppose to be Kings Square which seems to have slipped away.

That as a separate issue, as the Fremantle Society FS asked questions of the Kings Square project and never got the answers allot like Martin Lees more in depth  questions on the Kings Square Business Plan and its lack some of financial information that is needed to justify the councils amazing financial outcomes.

If the the FS is gagged Fremantles future just got a little more dire. I know hard to think it would get much worse

Looks like things are starting to move ahead.

Lets hope the Roe 9 development is announced quick so the people effected by the possible High St & Stock  Rd,etx can get on with the lives and not have it hanging over their heads.

Even if the government holds off on developing it they should announce the planned route or where its road or tunnel to give people in the area certainty. Then invest the money so this link to the port goes in with as little impact on the residences as possible and delivers a better transport corridor than Fremantle has now.

Fix the North Freo issue, open up the beach to the suburbs and sink the port link underground right till it rise in the port giving back the surface roads to the residents and directing transient traffic underground, to the south or the east.

Fremantle council has failed the community with ideology politically based approached, playing politics instead of ensuring the best come for Fremantle residents.

A properly planned road network linking into this planned system could have given Fremantle huge benefits, sadly our council said no to safer roads in and around Fremantle.
