The Fremantle precinct system (precincts) is part of a range of community engagement practices used by the City of Fremantle.

Precincts are groups of residents from local areas within Fremantle who “….work in partnership with the City of Fremantle to get things done for the good of the community.”  (Precinct Working Group, September 2010.)

There are 12 precinct groups in Fremantle:

  • Beaconsfield
  • Fremantle Arts Centre
  • Fremantle Society
  • Gibson Park
  • Hilton
  • North Fremantle
  • O’Connor
  • Samson
  • South City
  • South Fremantle
  • White Gum Valley
