Engagement on Proposed Changes
Under the current policy, fencing between the street and a house within the Hilton Heritage Area is required to not exceed 1.2 metres in total height and must be ‘visually permeable’ (see-through) above a height of 300 millimetres.
We're seeking community feedback on the idea of changing this requirement to provide additional flexibility. You can see more in the slideshow below:

You can also download an Information Pack and Hilton Fencing Options brochure, also available in the document library. These documents provide further information on the the existing and proposed changes to the front fencing rules contained within the Local Planning Policy.
We're also holding a drop-in information session 6 July 2019, 10.30am to 12.30pm at the Fremantle PCYC, Paget St Hilton.
We invite you to share your thoughts by 5.00pm Tuesday 16 July 2019.
Engagement on this has now concluded.
All applications for front fences within the Hilton Heritage Area require planning approval from the City, regardless of whether or not a fence complies with the policy. The updated Local Planning Policy 3.7 is now available at: www.fremantle.wa.gov.au/development/planning-policies
Please feel free to contact the City’s Strategic Planning team to discuss the changes (see 'contact' on this page).
