Sealanes engages the Fremantle community

PERTH food supply group Sealanes has engaged the local community in its efforts to ease the passage of a proposed 25,000 square metre development in South Fremantle.

The company recently held the second of two community workshops providing the community with an opportunity to peruse and comment on plans prior to submission to council.

Project manager Rob Iannello said between 50 and 60 members from the South Fremantle community turned up for the three-hour meeting.

The main issues of community concern were: the lack of sea throughs or openings through the development to allow a view from South Terrace to the ocean; the incorporation of walkways; building height; and the fate of the old house on the site.

Mr Ianello said that it appeared those who were concerned about the height of the three to four storey development would compromise if the high voltage power lines along South Terrace were put underground.

Community concern over the fate of the old house on the site was also alleviated. In the plans the old house remains and will become part of a small commercial area in the development.

Comments from the community have been submitted to Macdonald Jones Architects. Sealanes plans to submit the development plans to the City of Fremantle next month.
