Public comment period closed

Thank you to everyone who lodged a submission, the public comment period on the temporary closure of the pedestrian access way from Swanbourne Street to Kellow Place has now closed.



Should the access way be reopened or stay closed?


An application received by the City of Fremantle on the 1 December 2014 proposed the permanent closure of the pedestrian access way, linking Kellow Place and Swanbourne Street, Fremantle.

Council resolved to proceed with a 35 day public advertising period where submissions were received. The results of advertising were reported back to council (PC1604 on 24 February 2016), who decided to trial a 12 month temporary closure of the pedestrian access way.

The temporary closure will end on 28 April 2017. We're interested to hear your thoughts on whether the pedestrian access way should be permanently closed or reopened to the pubic and the gates removed.

What's been your experience of the trial closure?
