Community Precinct Groups

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Precinct groups are run by community members and offer opportunities for information sharing and engagement on local topics.


Precinct group meetings are open forums where any community member can attend and engage on a range of community issues. Many groups also run activities with the aim of building local community connections.

As an open and consultative local government, the City of Fremantle supports precinct groups, to encourage any community member to participate and take an active role in providing input into the operations of the local government.

    "On a brilliantly sunny and warm afternoon, the play space was ‘officially’ opened on July 2nd. Those attending included students from East Fremantle Primary who were creatively involved in the consultations to design the new play space, local users of the play space and other local residents, Fremantle staff involved in the design and construction of the play space, and Mayor Brad Pettitt and four Councillors. Speeches were short and group photos should show what a happy event it was." - Gibson Park Precinct

    The City would also like to thank the Gibson Park precinct group for their ongoing commitment to this project, delivered as part of the City's play space renewal project. Read the full article here.
