Save the Royal George Hotel from high-rise development

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

The iconic Royal George Hotel in old East Fremantle is under threat of domination by a multi-storey apartment block that will rob the hotel of its unique character and aspect, and ruin the historic Plympton neighbourhood.

We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the WA Planning Commission endorses and that the Hon. Minister for Planning approves the Town of East Fremantle’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3 Amendment No. 15 in its current form (Council Meeting 6 June 2018) relating to the Royal George Hotel site at 34 Duke Street, East Fremantle.

Any variation in the proposed clauses, particularly to increase the building height and associated land use intensity, would result in a development that will have detrimental planning and amenity impacts on the character of this unique heritage area and its residents.
