Background Information: 

A series of workshops and community-driven events to produce a clear community vision that is owned by the community. Community involvement in the process will shape what Fremantle will look like in the decades ahead and will provide clear direction for council on priorities.

The visioning process began with the launch on Thursday 16 May 2013 with four visioning workshops scheduled throughout 2013. A community summit was held in December 2014.


Perth is undergoing a period of massive change and Fremantle requires a clear long–term vision if it is to be a sustainable, liveable and vibrant place over coming decades.

The City of Fremantle is also required by the state government to do a community plan and a CBD structure plan,. The community visioning project will help these two processes.

The current City of Fremantle strategic Plan 2010–15 is coming to an end and this vision will build on that plan and will form the basis of the next strategic plan.


Fremantle 2029 was an innovative, professional and interactive engagement with a wide range of Fremantle people including those who are not normally engaged in the future of Fremantle. The visioning:

  • made the most of Fremantle’s extraordinary local talent and knowledge in the presenters we choose and forums we run
  • used digital media to accurately document the process
  • made use of social media and other web–based interactive forums to reach the broader community
  • included interactive public meetings in which people are informed but even more importantly, get to have their say on key Fremantle issues for them.


The results of the various community engagement activities was summarised in the Fremantle 2029 Report on Community Ideas 2013/14

Many of the ideas and suggestions were then used to produce Freo 2029 Transformational moves
