recreation and COmmunity facilities Strategy adopted

During the past 12 months, the Town has been working with SGL to develop a Recreation and Community Facilities Strategy to provide a framework for addressing the current and future recreation and community facility needs. 

The project has consulted and engaged with the community and the information gathered fhas provided has been used to develop a range of strategies with which to move forward.

Common themes that emerged from the consultation included suggestions relating to multipurpose community and recreation facilities, such as the redevelopment of East Fremantle Oval and the remainder of the ‘A’ Class reserve it is located on, as well as facilities at Leeuwin; co-location and resource sharing between clubs and associations and neighbouring local governments; the changing demographic of the area and the need to provide facilities and services accordingly; and, maintaining community access and use of the foreshore.

The final report was adopted by Council on 13 December 2016 and provides high-level recommendations. 

Please note that any progress of these recommendations, particularly concerning co-location of groups or clubs, or relocation and development of facilities will require detailed investigations such as master plans, business case development and further comprehensive consultation and engagement with residents, facility users and the community.
