Proposed Montreal Street Community Facility

The City is proposing a replacement community facility for the current and emerging community centred around Booyeembara Park.

The proposed facility would offer flexible, multi-functional spaces that are complimentary to existing amenities in the locality.


This project has been initiated because of the Main Roads WA High Street upgrade project. The City has committed to ensuring a suitable replacement community facility (to replace the previous amenities at 26 Montreal St) and the provision of a remediated Fremantle Public Golf Course with similar facilities and functionality.

As part of the replacement works, it is proposed to combine the golf clubhouse and community facility into a co-located building. Co-locating with the golf clubhouse provides numerous potential benefits such as design and construction efficiency, shared services, shared operating costs, increased activation, passive surveillance and shared car parking.

Community facility components of the building will be managed through the City’s community facility hire process and not provided to any specific organisation for exclusive use through a lease or licence agreement.


Location

The proposed location would cater to a catchment area of approximately 1km radius. The indicative design envelope for a co-located building is shown below and is in the vicinity of the Montreal Street entry to Booyeembara Park.

The facility would be designed to complement and blend with the surrounding environment and will seek to maximise the connection with Booyeembara Park.


We’re seeking input from local groups and potential users to inform the City's decision-making. Attend your local precinct group meeting or the on-site talk,and tell us more below by Sunday 1 December 2019.
