Monument Hill

To help maintain Monument Hill Reserve as an area for remembrance and quiet solitude we're proposing changes including prohibiting flying motorised remotely piloted devices on or over Monument Hill Reserve without a permit from the City of Fremantle.


What changes are proposed and why?

Monument Hill is considered the perfect place to take some time out to relax on the lawns and enjoy the view, whilst reflecting the true meaning of the memorials and appreciating the meaningful architecture. However, this quiet enjoyment is sometimes disturbed and disrespected by use of motorised model airplanes, helicopters, drones or other similar remotely piloted devices.

We're seeking submissions on a proposal to restrict the use of motorised model airplanes, helicopters, drones or other similar remotely piloted devices to permit holders only, and to prohibit riding a bicycle, a skateboard, rollerblades, a sandboard or a similar device on any of the monuments, or their surrounding bases, on Monument Hill Reserve.

To enable this change Council resolved to make a determination under its Local Government Property Local Law at its Finance, Policy, Operations and Legislation Committee meeting on 14 October 2020.


Purpose and Effect

The purpose and effect of this determination is:

Purpose - To prohibit

(1) flying motorised model airplanes, helicopters, drones or other similar remotely piloted devices on or over Monument Hill Reserve without a permit from the City of Fremantle; and

(2) riding a bicycle, a skateboard, rollerblades, a sandboard or a similar device on any of the Monuments, or their surrounding bases, on Monument Hill Reserve.

Effect - The effect of the determination is to maintain Monument Hill Reserve as an area for remembrance and quiet solitude and to protect the Monuments from potential damage.
