The City’s Vision, long term goals and objectives are outlined in the City of Fremantle Strategic Community Plan. The strategic plan is an ambitious, aspirational plan for the future of Freo over the next 10+ years.
It was developed following an extensive community visioning exercise conducted in 2013–14, and adopted by Fremantle Council in 2016.
The plan envisages Fremantle as “ a destination city:
A city that is clever and creative, inspiring and inclusive.
A city that welcomes and celebrates all people and cultures.
A city that encourages innovation, prosperity and achievement.
A compassionate city that cares for the wellbeing of our people and the environment we share.
A city that thrives on diversity, that dares to be different.”

Out of the key themes identified by the community came specific goals and objectives. The goals and objectives in the Strategic Community Plan are outlined under the following strategic focus areas:

The plan is subject to periodic review (2–4 yearly) to ensure that it stays current, and was last reviewed in 2019. It is complemented by the City’s One Planet Strategy.
