    Did you know?

    How will my input be used?

    Early stages of community engagement were used to guide the focus, priorities and actions of the Access & Inclusion Plan 2021-2025. This input was summarised in a Community Engagement Report.

    In this stage of consultation, your feedback will tell us if we’ve captured and used this input correctly and any minor changes that are required before the Plan is finalised.   

    We capture details such as your email address so that we can keep you up to date with the decision and report on how many people have participated in the process. Your personal details are not included in reports.  

    This information may also be considered when developing future strategic documents.

    What will happen to my personal details?

    Comments may be included in the Community Engagement Summary Report. Your personal details will not be included in this, but we ask for this information so we can make sure we've heard from a range of people and can keep you up to date with the decision. Your screen name (of your choice) may appear on public-facing comment boards on My Say Freo.

    Where can I get more information?

    You can contact Beverley Bone, Manager Community Development at City of Fremantle by emailing info@fremantle.wa.gov.au, or phoning 1300 MY FREO (1300 693 736).
