Brad Pettitt
Mayor of the City of Fremantle

Read more about Brad Pettitt at his website: http://www.bradpettitt.org/about-brad/

              "Brad has a long association with Fremantle. Both of his parents grew up in the port city and attended John Curtin. Brad grew up in the hills and moved to Freo at 18 to go to Murdoch University.
He studied politics, philosophy and sociology before doing Honours in Environmental Studies and finally a PhD in Sustainable Development.

His personal dedication to service then led him to devote several years of his life to working in Cambodia with Oxfam, and then for the Australian Government Aid program in Canberra.

Returning to Murdoch as a lecturer, he rose to the position of Dean of the School of Sustainability.

Brad served four years as a City of Fremantle Councillor before he was first elected Mayor in 2009. During this time, he has also served on the Heritage Council of WA, involved with Urban Development, Transport, Climate Change Adaptation and City Centre Strategic Sites. He has published papers on sustainability and built heritage and on heritage and buffer zones.

Across his two terms as Mayor, Brad has applied his knowledge of sustainable cities to making Fremantle a great place to live and work. Working closely with a motivated council, he and his team have developed a strong vision for the city, delivering many important projects.

Brad has just this year started a family with his partner, herself a fifth-generation Fremantle resident, and he is more motivated than ever to create a positive future for the city."

Future Bayswater: Future Vision

What is wanted? A livable, vibrant and connected Town Centre.
Why? To become a "go-to" destination rather than a place to"go through" in desperation.
How to do this? By supporting a comprehensive Future Vision via an Activity Centre Plan.
Why Bayswater? It's a strategic inner urban hub that hasn't realised its full potential ... yet.
