The new policy proposes that street art – graffiti that has some artistic and creative merit – will be left in place unless it is offensive or the property owner asks for it to be removed.
There is some wonderfully creative street art happening in Fremantle. Thoughtful and attractive street art adds to the local culture and experience of a place. It has even been suggested to have regenerative effects on a neighborhood.
What do you think?
The policy that will be debated on Wednesday 10 October is copied below.
