AGENDA ITEMS –

1. Renewal of the Play Space at Frank Gibson Park – The City has allocated $120,000 in the current financial year to update and renew the play space at Frank Gibson Park. Ryan Abbott, Manager of Parks and Landscapes with the City of Fremantle, outlined the status and the opportunities of this project. Unlike planning done in 2015/16, which was never funded by the City and was based on extensive landscaping and retaining the existing play equipment, the current project involves the play space only, replacement of some of the play equipment, adding more nature play to the play space, and extensive community consultation in the area.

Kahlia Belli, Community Engagement Officer with Fremantle, outlined the consultation process, which has included a letter box drop in the Precinct, a workshop with students from East Fremantle Primary, an on site drop in session with community members at the play space, and an online survey at MySay Freo. Final concept planning for the project is scheduled to be completed by the end of November 2019, with project completion around April/May 2020.

Ideas raised at the meeting included shade sails or similar for the play space, more seating for parents and grandparents, access to drinking water, more climbing and nature play opportunities, and better integration of the play space area with the rest of the net ball-dominated park.

ACTION: As the deadline for input on the MySay Freo survey on this project was Friday, August 30th, an email was sent on Wednesday, April 28th to residents on the GPP email list inviting them to participate in the online survey.

  1. Councillor Updates:
    High Street and Stirling Hwy/High Street Intersection Upgrade –
    Subsequent to the meeting, Main Roads issued the following project update on Wednesday, September 4th: ‘The process of demolishing 16 Main Roads-owned properties at the intersection of High Street and Stirling Highway in Fremantle is underway, following a site inspection by Main Roads representatives and WA Police earlier this morning. ‘The installation of security fencing is underway and security guards will monitor the site on an ongoing basis through to the completion of demolition work, which is expected to take approximately two weeks. Some of our fencing is situated at the edge of existing footpaths around the site. Pedestrians are advised to take care when walking in the area. ‘Later today, our demolition contractor will remove the floorboards and ceilings from the buildings. This work needs to be undertaken by hand before heavy machinery can demolish the structures. ‘Demolition of the Fremantle Environment Resource Network (FERN) building at the corner of Montreal Street and High Street is also in progress. This property has been vacant since 21 August. The work is being managed by the City of Fremantle. ‘Please be aware that the demolition work does not include the clearing of any mature trees on or around the site.’ FOGO Update – Fremantle will be rolling out a new three-bin (FOGO) system in September. The additional bin is for food and garden organics to be converted to clean compost. This bin is in addition to the bins for recycling (yellow top) and a new red top bin for general waste. Some multi-unit developments will not be included in this initial rollout. ACTION: In the same April 28th email mentioned above, Gibson Park residents were invited to a presentation on FOGO and waste minimisation at the White Gum Valley Precinct meeting on September 3rd.
  2. Improving Community Awareness Of and Involvement With Gibson Park Precinct: ‘Reactivation’ of Gibson Park Precinct was discussed, with the aim of achieving greater awareness within GPP of Freo’s precinct system, having more residents coming out and having their say on issues important to them and, at the very least, having more local residents on the GPP email list so that they can receive notice of meeting and other events, as well as the minutes or meeting notes to keep them informed of developments. Kahlia outlined the various ways the City can help the Precincts with their activities, and noted that Hilton and Beaconsfield Precincts currently have reactivation projects underway. A meeting of Precinct Convenors is schedule for October 3rd, and this will be an opportunity for sharing ideas on this topic.

4. Other Business – Cr Ingrid Waltham told the meeting that, after eight years representing East Ward on Fremantle Council, she would not be standing for re- election in the upcoming municipal elections. Ingrid, who has been an effective and hard working member of Council, was given an enthusiastic and warm vote of thanks from those at the meeting.
