FITZROY RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION INC

The FITZROY RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION INC  (FRA) is a community organisation formed in 1969 in response to the planned large scale demolition (by the state government) of Fitzroy and North Fitzroy for redevelopment. FRA aimed to maintain and renew the 19th century housing stock and associated architecture of Melbourne’s first suburb. After largely, but not entirely, winning this battle the FRA was very influential with the Fitzroy City Council through to the early ’80s on many policy fronts.

The objective of the FRA is simple: to keep Fitzroy liveable.
Our mission statement is to promote, protect and enhance residential amenity.

Hence our areas of interest include:

  • maintaining a proper balance between residential and commercial interests
  • concerns over safety and noise levels in the streets, particularly in residential areas late at night.
  • trying to ensure new developments do not ruin Fitzroy’s unique character.
  • the preservation of heritage buildings.
  • opposition to encroachment of late trading nightclubs, entertainment venues and bars because of their detrimental effect on residential amenity.
  • reasonable car parking arrangements so that residents can park within walking distance of their homes
  • support residents on local issues and amenities.

FRA celebrates its 50th anniversary on 1 August 2019.
