Town of East Fremantle mayor Jim O�Neill said attendees were told land use and what would be developed on the site would be decided by the Western Australian State Planning Commission, the East Fremantle council and the purchaser.
He said the Town was committed to working with the Department of Defence and the State Government to get the best return on investment and the best outcome for the amenity of the area.
��It is a chance to create something relevant and irreplaceable, not only for the immediate community of East Fremantle to enjoy, but for the region and the city,� he said.
�Its proximity to the river makes it so important that the site is developed with both an eye on the past and the future.
�Although we have had no formal commitment from the minister at this stage, the Town is eager and committed to working with the Department of Defence to maximise the opportunities for community to have a say in the vision for the Leeuwin Barracks site.�
