Labor’s Leeuwin talkfest

Visions of a sprawling parkland along the foreshore? Or high rise apartments for the well heeled? The future of the Leeuwin barracks site is on the agenda at a public meeting Tuesday, October 4, at 7pm. It’s at East Fremantle Tennis Club, cnr Petra Street and Preston Point Road.

Then again with prime minister Malcolm Turnbull splashing money around on an innovation centre in Adelaide, why not one on the banks of the Swan River?

The Labor Party-organised speakfest wants ideas for the huge site, along with a sense of residents’ concerns over issues like height, density and traffic impacts.

It’s open to all. Guests include WA leader Mark McGowan, Fremantle MP Simone McGurk and candidate for Bicton Lisa O’Malley, along with Fremantle federal MP Josh Wilson, and East Fremantle mayor Jim O’Neill.
