On Friday 23 March 2018 over 60 people including staff and Councillors celebrated the official opening of the renovations.  The Hon. Simone McGurke, representing the Premier of Western Australia;  Mayor Jim O'Neill;  and May McGuire who provided the Welcome to Country, officiated at the opening.


After 14 months of providing administration services from Dovenby House and the Old Police Station, Town of East Fremantle staff have relocated back to a newly refurbished and renovated Office and Council Chamber space.

The renovation involved the removal of all previous office infrastructure i.e. floor coverings, fittings, partitions, bench tops etc. and included structural improvements, disabled access inclusion and an upgrade to all utilities.  The building was stripped of all services, electrical and mechanical and the plumbing has been replaced.

The aim  of the renovation is to provide a better use of the office space, an opportunity for community meetings, a more functional and contemporary reception and front counter, as well as getting the most out of one of the Town's most beautiful buildings.
