Westport info sessions open to the community

Fremantle residents are encouraged to learn more about Westport’s work on planning the outer harbour at a community information session in Fremantle on Wednesday, 11 July.

The drop in session at Stackwood (10 Stack St, Fremantle) from 5:30-7:30pm will allow residents to find out more about the land use, transport, environmental and economic issues being considered in the development of the strategy.

The sessions will build on previous feedback provided by the community, which is summarised in the consultation report ‘Westport: What you have told us’.

All feedback received at the sessions will be used to inform the next discussion paper, which will be released for comment later this year.

Once complete, the Westport Strategy will fulfill an election commitment to plan solutions for port and freight related transport issues in Western Australia to meet the needs and expectations of the community and industry into the future.

The Member for Fremantle, Simone McGurk recommended her constituents attend. “Fremantle residents voted overwhelming to scrap the Perth Freight Link and get on with planning the Outer Harbour. I’d encourage local residents to drop in to Stackwood and learn a little more about the process, give their feedback and help make sure we get the strategy right,” she said.
