East Freo Oval Precinct Plan – Have Your Say!

Online Survey Kicks Off to Capture Community Ideas

31 March 2020

The Town of East Fremantle is progressing with its exciting new plans for the East Fremantle Oval Precinct, and we want to hear from you.

So far, the Town has consulted the community, examined options for the Precinct, developed an initial concept Plan that now forms a reference point, and held community workshops.  Now we are revisiting the Plan and want to broaden the conversation by inviting the whole Town to have a chat about the future of the area.

“East Freo is an iconic local hub for sport, recreation, community and a place that draws people together from across the Town and from neighbouring areas, united by a love of sport and leisure, whether that be footy, bowls, croquet, or to socialise and meet people,” Mayor Jim O’Neill said.

“Our vision for the area includes some long-overdue and much needed improvements to help our local clubs and sporting associations and other service providers and users to enjoy the facilities, while ensuring we have access for people of all ages and abilities,” he said. 

 These facilities being in close proximity to each other is a great opportunity for people to collaborate, share ideas, fundraise, socialise, meet each other and build capacity and we want this Plan to deliver that vibrancy and connection.  He advised the Plan was ready to share, and the online survey will ensure that everyone who either uses or wants to use the facilities can contribute.

The online survey will take only a few minutes to complete, and will enable the Town to build a team of engaged citizens who will work with the Town to fine-tune and implement the Precinct Plan as we move from the design phase, into the finalisation, then onto implementation and construction.

“We want to hear from everyone,” Mayor O’Neill said.  “Current users, neighbours, and people who would like to run a business or an activity of any kind in that space.  This is your opportunity – have your say.”

Mayor O’Neill explained that many of our residents are working from home due to COVID-19, and their children are on holidays, so this is a perfect time to stop and think about what exciting new ideas we can bring to the East Freo Oval Precinct and make it a world-class sporting, leisure, recreational and dining experience that draws in people from our Town and beyond.
