Future of Knutsford

Sustainable Future for Knutsford - Community Survey

Curtin University researcher Beth Perry is conducting a survey which will explore how different members of the Knutsford community relate to the vision for the area.

The survey also seeks to explore how the community would like to participate in further development and what support they may need to do so. This feedback will also help the City of Fremantle plan for further engagement with the Knutsford community.

Beth is interested to hear from anyone who lives, works, runs a business or has an interest in moving to the Knutsford area. Please feel free to pass the survey on if you know someone who may be interested.

What's happening in Knutsford?

The Knutsford precinct, just one kilometre east of the centre of Fremantle, presents a unique opportunity for urban renewal. The precinct is roughly bounded by High St, Montreal St, Stevens St and Swanbourne St, with multiple landowners. It includes the Knutsford Street East and Swanbourne Street Structure Plan areas.

At the core of the Knutsford precinct is the existing warehouse area which has a distinct identity. It contains a diverse mix of residential and business activity which add to the City of Fremantle’s vision for the area to become a world-class example of sustainable urban development.


A number of changes and initiatives have happened over recent years which to contribute to the City’s vision:

City of Fremantle

  • The Knutsford Street East Structure Plan (eastern end of Knutsford Street, between Amherst and Montreal Streets) was updated in 2017 to be more viable for re-development and to provide bonuses for exceptional sustainable development.

  • Working on a coordinated review of policies that affect the area - such as verges, street landscaping.

LandCorp

  • Created 90-100 town houses and apartments on Blinco St site with its Knutsford Joint venture Partner. More dwellings are planned to commence in 2019.

  • Has commenced development on the former museum site on Montreal St (East Village at Knutsford).

  • Is overseeing development of land in the Swanbourne St area, potentially in partnership with the private sector.

Curtin University

  • Beyond WGV Community Battery Storage – research on battery storage and other sustainable development initiatives.

  • Re New Nexus Smart Cities initiative – research into peer to peer trading of renewable energy link.

  • Water Sensitive Cities and Low Carbon Living have investigated possible energy and water solutions that might be applied across the precinct.


Other Activity In and Around the Knutsford Precinct

  • Some members of the community have been working on creating a narrative which helps to define an identity for the core (Industrial Arts Quarter).

  • A number of landowners have commenced planning for, or development of, leading edge sustainable development including the Nightingale proposal.

  • Main Roads WA High Street upgrade along the north side of the Precinct.
