Media Release – Leeuwin Lion Continues to Raw

Last week Tingira Australia Association President, Lance Ker, made a flying visit to Fremantle attending the first “Leeuwin Vision Plan Forum”. Brief extract from Presidents ‘Report On Proceedings’

I would like to take this opportunity as representing the Tingira Australia Association, reporting on the ‘Leeuwin Vision Forum’ conducted last week by the Dept of Defence and The Town of East Fremantle in Perth, Western Australia. The proposed sale of the former Leeuwin Barracks site (ex HMAS Leeuwin) was the major topic over a four day workshop.

Attended by varying interested parties including Defence, former navy Junior Recruits, Indigenous members, Fremantle and Perth residents, East Fremantle Council Representatives, Political Members and several other interested stakeholders.

TPG (Town Planning Group) the Consulting Company employed by Defence to produce the document this stage of the project and they have in turn employed a variety of architects and designers to assist with this process and provide the workshop forum. It is expected the sale of the site will be over $120 Million.
