Review of previous engagements
As part of the review, we're looking at access & inclusion-related comments made during other recent City engagements, including on the Age Friendly City Plan, Walyalup Reconciliation Action Plan and the Community Safety & Crime Prevention Plan.
A number of these respondents liked the diversity of the Fremantle community, the public transport network and Fremantle's proximity to facilities. Key themes that arose as important for accessibility and inclusion into the future included:
- Good, flexible public transport systems
- Accessible pathways that are well signed, even and unobstructed
- Accessible road crossings and intersections (roads are busy and time given to cross isn’t long enough)
- Events and activities for people of all ages, including active events and options for people on a reduced income
- A sense of social connection, community and inclusiveness and opportunities to participate, including being part of groups etc
- Maintaining and encouraging diversity
- Supporting aboriginal people with disability
- A sense of safety and security, including good lighting
- Ability to easily access facilities such as supermarkets, health services and community services (library, banking, post office etc)
- The need for accessible public toilets within the CBD.
