Future Freo kicks off

Future Freo kicks off

The Committee for Perth announced at last month's Fremantle Leaders Luncheon it is undertaking the landmark Future Freo project that will use evidenced based research to closely examine greater Fremantle.

The year–long project will produce a report that will detail Fremantle as it is today as well as identify opportunities and challenges for the future. The study aims to ensure the region is economically sustainable and a vibrant place to live, work, play and invest for current and future generations.

Have your say on our parking review Have your say on our parking review

With Fremantle's limited capacity to provide street parking for all our residents, workers, students and visitors, parking is an important issue for the City.
