Minutes of Gibson Park Precinct Meeting Tuesday 28 June 2016

The Library E. Fremantle Primary School – Forrest Street, Fremantle

Attendance: Shane Chambers, Coralie Clarke, Val Cousins, Ron Kawalilak Apologies: Karl Paterson, Martin Potter, Cr. Doug Thompson
Meeting Chairperson: Shane Chambers
Meeting opened: – 7.05 pm

AGENDA ITEMS –

  1. Approval of Agenda and Minutes – Attendees agreed with the agenda presented.

    Minutes of the meeting held 26 April 2016 were approved.

  2. Perth Freight Link Update – Gibson Park and White Gum Valley Precincts held a joint meeting on 10 May 2016, largely to discuss State Government plans for the proposed Perth Freight Link, including the proposed tunnel under Beaconsfield and White Gum Valley, between the Stock-Winterfold Road intersection to the junction of Stirling Highway and High Street in Fremantle. Community issues with the proposed Freight Link were discussed at the joint meeting, as were methods to better engage with State Government to get the outcomes sought by the community. Action: As this joint meeting was well attended and considered useful, GPP will continue to liaise with WGVP and conduct further joint meetings when appropriate.
  3. Rethink Perth Freight Link Signs – The status of the printing and production of additional RETHINK…. signs was discussed. It was noted that an invoice for the signs was required before the end of the current financial year. Action: Coralie to contact Barry Healy to see whether the invoice had been received and forwarded to the City of Fremantle.
  4. Cycling Safety – There was some discussion about the safety of cyclists in the vicinity of Gibson Park during periods when the park is heavily used for netball. The yellow bike logos that were recently stenciled on Forrest Street were noted and it was agreed that these yellow logos would improve driver perceptions of cycling on shared roads and may promote safer driver behaviours towards cyclists.
  5. Parking and Loudspeaker Use at Gibson Park – There was discussion concerning the level of sports activity at Gibson Park. In addition to the heavy use of the park for netball on Saturdays, it was noted that the netball courts are also used 2-3 nights a week, and there is also considerable netball activity from schools during the school week. It was also noted that:

• There appeared to be better management of the netball loudspeaker system in recent times and the noise was not so intrusive to local residents. This will continue

to be monitored.

  • Some users of the park were continuing to park their cars on the lower grassed

    playing surface during the week, when netball was played at night. While the instances of this appeared to be diminishing, it could be prevented altogether if the middle gate on the road through the park was kept locked (so people then couldn’t drive down onto the grassed area).

  • The north eastern edge of the park, fringing the lower grassed area, is heavily rutted, and could be considered for a more formal car, roadway area.
  • One possible solution to traffic congestion around the park on netball Saturdays could be to introduce one-way traffic on Saturdays, i.e. enter via Wilkinson, travel down Forrest, and exit via Chudleigh.
  • Some aspects of the parking ‘Russian-roulette’ on Saturdays have improved as vehicles parked dangerously on footpaths and corners are receiving parking fines.
  1. Greening of Roundabout on Forrest and Wilkinson – It was noticed that this relatively new roundabout had minimal planting in its garden bed and was less attractive than it could be. Action: Seek clarification from City on whether this area will be planted with more attractive, higher growing plants (such as used at Point and Queen Victoria streets).
  2. Update on Inner Harbour Community Liaison Group – A brief summary of the 24 May 2016 meeting of the Inner Harbour Community Liaison Group was provided by Ron, who represents GPP at these meetings.
    Inner Harbour Trade: Trade is still quite flat at Fremantle Harbour, with container trade down 3% compared to this time last year, motor vehicle trade the same as last year after suffering declines of 12% and 10% the two previous years; and machinery and steel trades significantly down. The cruise industry continues to grow.

    North Quay Rail Service: Rail currently moves approximately 14% of Inner Harbour container freight on 3-4 trains per day.
    Lead Shipments from the Port: Rosslyn Hill Mining is proposing to recommence the shipment of lead from Fremantle Port. The Rosslyn Hill mine had been placed in care and maintenance in February 2-15 due to low metal prices, but are now looking to restart operations as market conditions have improved. The bagging and loading process of the lead carbonate concentrate was described at the meeting (double-lined bags, bags vacuumed, outside of containers washed, inspected, moved by truck to Leonora, and then by rail to Fremantle Port). Under the provisions of Ministerial Statement 905, the Rosslyn Hill’s approval to ship lead from the port expires in July 2017. The company is seeking an extension until July 2024.

    Port Sale: The Treasurer introduced legislation to State Parliament on 18 May 2016 to enable the sale of the port through long-term lease. Passage of this legislation is not assured. The Port Authority is continuing to plan for the separation of its business into two entities: a residual State-owned port authority (Harbour Master’s function, overseeing safe navigation, master planning oversight) and a private company (all land except for west end of Victoria Quay, which is D Shed and the area west of that). Fremantle Ports continues to run business as usual.

Next Meeting Tuesday, 30 August 2016
