Amazing similarities between Barnett and Pettitts agenda, controlling how you live

Barnett’s laws are part of a growing trend of legislation that undermines civil rights.

Amazing that the greens candidate brings up this issue, well not really hypocrisy could be considered policy for many of them? anyway while the greens candidate for Fremantle is complaining against a bill to become law that stops protesters from interfering with people going about their lawful activity. Its not against protesting its self, just about protesters interfering with other peoples lawful activity. Seems reasonable to me.

Anyway while she is protesting and writing about Barnett’s interfering with peoples rights, her green party members on council are doing the same thing with how people live. Our Mayor in Freo Brad Pettitt wants to limit the size of the house you can build on your own block, while he is driving sub-division at the same time hes got other plans up his sleeve that will effect your family rights in Fremantle.


Things like one car per house, banning street and verge parking encouraging development in town with out adequate if parking? What effect will this have on your investment? When streets are packed with people cars who’s apartments don’t have a car parking space. Long term it will have a negative impact on growth for these properties, especially when every where else is ensuring adequate parking space. This is WA a state bigger than western europe.

So while the greens candidates is complaining about a law that will really only effect the professional protesters and their activities to stop businesses going about their lawful activity, the Mayors Plan will impact how your family life at home 24/7, 365 days a year.

Now that’s worth protesting about.


Coming to a Devalued Fremantle Suburb Near You Soon

Driven by Fremantle policy here we see some of the impacts as Fremantle Councils Anti-car policy, small houses and parking bans come to your suburb soon.

On Brads reasoning cutting out 2 parking spaces in or around your home could de-value your home value by a $100,000.00

Quite a hit with a stagnant market?

One car per family is the mayors goal but he’s got two himself?

Here we see another concern resident and rate payer speak up as councils policy hits his families home, street and neighbourhood. Council driven more by ideology than good public policy, designed to support and protect the residents and rate payers amenity.

You have to wonder who council is working for, several businesses in town seem to benefit from council direction but the average rate payer watch out, what crap development is heading to your street.

Check this out can you believe it even mining camp dongers meet out Councillors quality design principles, strangely enough I don’t see any doing up close to their homes.


Seriously what a disgrace this council is.

What negative impact will this council have on your biggest investment?

What will your rate increase be next year?

What was it last year or the year before?

Are you funding the Mayors ideology?

Are you funding the Mayors political driven agenda?

We will not even mention the council selling your city assets and investing the money where will it benefit you? Further driving down your cities ability to raise funds from asset that generate revenue, which will further increase your liability, driving rates up and up year after year.

Kings Sq, looking at another possible, $30-50 million loss to rate payers?

Quote of the night the council has consulted, but doesn’t give shit, so will do what they want. Classic, a typical Freo council box ticking exercise, good for a select few, damn the rest.

Fremantle Parking Policy Before Full Council Tonight

no car

Fremantle’s night to see if the COF is about Rate Payer and Resident Amenity or Anti-Car Ideology

One of the purpose of the council is too ensure that rate payers and residents amenity is improved or at least not eroded.

So tonight the residents and rate payers of fremantle will see what is the case.


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The purpose of this report is to present an amended version of the City of Fremantle’s Residential and multi-purpose parking permit policy to the Strategic and General Services Committee for consideration and adoption. The report provides commentary on the objectives of the amended Residential and multipurpose parking permit policy and discusses the results of a community survey conducted in September 2014.

A great quote from some residents in fremantle that i was sent on the issue,

Interestingly if the Council was to do some comparisons with Australian and international cities that have grown to achieve significantly higher population densities (you can look as close as City of Perth, or inner-city Sydney, or inner-city Brisbane, or inner-city Melbourne or as far away as San Francisco) that not only do they provide parking permits for residents, they generally provide more, at much lower cost, and also prioritize residents. I guess those Councils must think making a place attractive to live will encourage more people to live there. CoF seems pretty keen on driving the few that already call the CBD home away.

So far voting in SGS For the issue;

Cr Andrew Sullivan,

Cr David Hume,

Cr Sam Wainwright,

Cr Dave Coggin,

Cr Robert Fittock

Quote from the agenda, 323 responses were received on Survey Monkey with 4 emails, 2 letters and an email submission from the Beaconsfield Precinct.

A statistical summary of survey responses has been included in this report as Attachment 4. Within the survey, questions 7 & 8 allowed respondents to articulate their thoughts and opinions in free text. Copies of all 212 public comments have been provided to Elected Members as a confidential attachment to this report (Attachment 5). Due to the volume of comments received, paper copies have been printed and placed in the Councillors lounge for review.

Why are the public comments kept from the public view, whats confidential about any of that?

You Tube story about Fremantle Parking and Housing diversity

Fremantle First

I see Brad in the paper again, photo opp anyone, something about cars and parking, I think? People call Barnett emperor seriously check out Brads pic hes just missing, The Gladius and his Galea, standing over the evil vanquished cars.

I find it hard to see how the Mayor of a city with such a poor report in the 202020 vision can be  lecturing  about the concrete in Perth when his council is and has approved parkland to be concreted over, while having the second worse record in WA . Not to mention the 100+ trees they approved to be cut down on one block in White Gum Valley, just recently.

So perhaps we should keep the trees we have, stop concreting and planning to concrete more parkland and work on getting Fremantle back on its feet instead trying to tell the rest of the state how do its business.

According to the ABS here is a excerpt from their last report. “The number of passenger vehicles per 1,000 population has also increased across all states and territories. Tasmania has experienced the largest number increase, from 554 per 1,000 in 2006 to 597 per 1,000 population in 2013. Western Australian experienced the smallest increase per 1,000 population (from 588 to 597 per 1,000 population).” Leaving Victoria, S.A.  A.C.T.  all worse than W.A. who is equal 4th with Tasmania

Passenger vehicles in Perth over 5 yrs had increased by 2.1% on the yearly average, while it was trucks and motor bikes that had doubled that figure in growth, neither using that much parking bay space.

It certainly doesn’t cost $30,000 for a car bay at your average Australian home, well not unless Brad has some new council car tax he hasn’t told us about? Last time i heard Brad referenced the cost of a  parking bay it was $50,000 per bay quite a change, i wonder what it will be next time? Have a look at this you tube post, compare to what Brad was reported in the West to have said, its only a 40% discrepancy.

Then of course there is the common sense way to look at it, a nurse drives to work at a hospital, does his/her shift leaves, then the same car bay is used by the next shift, well if that happens 3 times a day we can divide his figures by 3 for all shift workers jobs just to start with. The questions in these figures are endless.

It really drives home the tag for my blog Don’t Drink The Coolaid, i.e. don’t believe everything you are told, otherwise bad things can happen, ask questions, think for your self, chat to mates, etc.

Roel, has a blog on it too, Freoview, check out the comments after his blog post, always interesting.
