Update - Item to Council (26 May 2021)

by Rhiannon,

The engagement findings and a report will be going to the Ordinary Council meeting 26 May 2021. The report proposes a name change from Kings Square to the Whadjuk Nyoongar words 'Walyalup Koort' (meaning heart of Fremantle). It also includes the findings of the community engagement process 'What's in a Name?' (see attachments) - we'd like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who has participated so far, from 128 name suggestions to 182 participants in the online discussion, 110 random surveys, input from businesses, 7 hard copy surveys, written submissions, direct emails and discussion pack. The original content can be found in the 'additional information' part of the Council agenda.
