first interactive City Central Workshop shows support for scheme amendment

The first interactive City Central Workshop as part of the City of Fremantle’s community consultation took place last night and I thought it was a innovative, interesting and interactive affair.

Once some minor technological glitches were sorted out each participant got to use a special remote voting key pad that provided almost live account in graph form (see photo below) of what community members did and didn’t like about the proposed scheme amendment. I wasn’t there for the whole night but the parts I saw showed there was general support for all aspects of the amendment (for example more office had 66% support)

The most telling statistic was the question that asked if there was overall support for the scheme amendment as a whole. The answers came back:

  • Strongly agree 59%
  • Agree 18 %
  • Neutral 11%
  • Disagree 7%
  • Strongly disagree 5%

The voting was followed by general questions from the floor.

As this first interactive workshop was over-subscribed there is another next Monday the 21st if you would like to RSVP.

    I thought it was the best of the consultation events I have been to, and I went to all of them, as you can read in more detail on my blog.
