Yolk Property At It Again

Urgent- 65 South Terrace Hotel -Too Large

Apologies for the very late notice but Yolk Property have an application going through Fremantle Council Wednesday night at 6pm on its way to the government's COVID Committee dealing with projects like this over $23 million.

You should be alarmed at another oversized development damaging the essence and scale of Fremantle in such a sensitive area on the corner of Suffolk Street, a street of one and two storeys.

The images do not show an honest view of the proposal as most people are not seagulls flying around the town.

Fremantle Council officers are recommending approval and most councillors have already indicated they like this oversized development by the same developer who built the building in Pakenham Street described by one resident as the "worst building in the West End" and who are currently building the oversized block of flats in Adelaide Street opposite Johnston Court just 100 metres from the heritage heart of Fremantle, forever changing the modest scale of Fremantle.

If you have time to read the agenda you will see that this site had proposals for 3 and 4 storeys REJECTED, yet this 6 storey application, vastly bigger, with a serious lack of car bays, and contrary to the height allowed for the site, is recommended for approval.

Why?

The applicant again is arguing that nearby monsters like Fremantle Hospital and Arundel Court block of flats are PRECEDENTS and can be copied in size, when in fact they are detested ABERRATIONS NOT to be copied or repeated.

This proposal is not only higher that the adjacent Arundel Court, but has a much bigger footprint.

How then did the design committee and officers fall for that one? How does Yolk repeatedly get these oversized developments through Council?

Please urgently send a comment, even if one sentence, to:

members@fremantle.wa.gov.au

Or, you can attend at North Fremantle Community Hall at 5.50pm and register to speak on this issue.
