Tree sapling

Green spaces and trees provide a range of economic, social and environmental benefits. The Fremantle 2029 visioning process identified a clear long-term vision for Fremantle to be a sustainable, liveable and vibrant place over the coming decades. In particular, green spaces were identified by the community as valuable assets.

Greening Fremantle: Strategy 2020 provides a framework to deliver key projects over the next five years to implement a greener city. It is the culmination of work and input from the local community, Green Plan 2020 Working Group and City of Fremantle.

Key targets and initiatives include:

  • Every worker and resident to be within walking distance to public open space.
  • Progressively increase tree canopy across the city to achieve up to 20 percent.
  • Design adaptable open space that allows for future flexibility as the community and open space function and needs change over time.
  • Develop links that increase the amount of vegetation and increase habitat and movement between green spaces for native fauna.

A range of projects will be delivered to meet these targets, including new green spaces, improving green links for biodiversity, and an urban forest plan to reduce urban heat island effect.
