Seriously, what was the council thinking
Activate this area, in Summer this area does not need activation, to think so you would need to have had a crack to the head, or have never have been to this beach, on the weekend this place is packed.
I have written posts already last summer on the parking problems on the weekend. I have invited Councillors down the the beach to see the issue with parking.
By 8am on the average Sunday morning over summer the parking is full between Port and Leighton beach.
This is not taking into consideration when surf carnivals run at Fremantle Surf Life Saving Club.
The council claims it wants to activate the area, who do they think they are kidding, Fremantle Surf Life Saving Club has over 500 members just in nippers, on its best day Fremantle council could not supply the activation to Leighton/port beach that the FSLSC does on a routine basis over summer.
All the council needs to do is supply suitable parking infrastructure for the beach. Maybe working public toilets, change rooms and showers would be a plus?
Not approve infrastructure to be built over the top of areas used for parking.
Again a council that’s clearly out of touch with reality here.
