The mean streets of Fremantle

Fremantle's cappuccino strip. Glorious by day but horrendous by night according to local businesses

An increase in violent and drunken behaviour on the streets of Fremantle has caused several small businesses to call for more police help. Paul Murray spoke Tim Milsom who is the CEO of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Fremantle has its myriad problems amidst its myriad hopes, because the bent was on an extensive night culture, the bent was to make it unruly, wild and woolly, soliciting a particular type of attitude and behaviour - nightclubs, pubs, drinking and hooning, the problems emanate from the nightclubs and the pubs that go long into the early morning hours - where folk are wasted, agitated by excessive consumption of alcohol - the town authorities are just as responsible for this as are those who seek to make a quid out of inebriation and hoon like behaviour.

    The critical mass of an extensive nightclub and drinking club culture is bigger than little Fremantle can cope with - the wear and tear on the little town has long been evident. Fremantle should never have been dumped into larger than life expectations, more than it can cope with. Hillary's knows its limits so should Fremantle. I've watched Fremantle go downhill over the years, much to my disappointment.

  • What's a "stake/steak -holder" in a community? Keep it simple.
    Not that I live in Fremantle, but Tim Milsom, begs the question in respect of an old Freo. How long has he been here?...
    Along with all the other people from "Britain" who seem to have recolonised Australia from their failing and frail economies.
    CEO's, Heads of this, heads of that, Members of Parliament, radio and TV hosts, commercials.
    Their voices are doing my head in. Where's ours? Along with the Asian and African people who didn't come here to make a quick buck and then go "home".
