Fremantle Gazette - - OPINION -

WITH the com­ple­tion of hous­ing at 31 Strat­ton Street, Hamil­ton Hill, I have con­cerns re­lat­ing to the al­lo­ca­tion of that hous­ing due to its prox­im­ity to re­tained hous­ing on Star­ling Street, Strat­ton Street and Carter Street.

The taste­ful se­lec­tion of ex­te­rior fin­ishes and the in­clu­sion of art­work has made a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the street and amenity of the neigh­bour­hood. How­ever, my con­cerns are around the po­ten­tial for ghet­toi­sa­tion and an in­crease in crime and anti-so­cial be­hav­iour that may re­sult from the al­lo­ca­tion of these homes.

I only hope that the hous­ing au­thor­ity care­fully con­sid­ers the al­lo­ca­tion of hous­ing at 31 Strat­ton Street and the im­pact of that al­lo­ca­tion on the Hamil­ton Hill com­mu­nity. DAVID GOODALL Hamil­ton Hill
