What will be the future use of the hockey field at Goodwood Oval?
A study into the future use of the hockey field at Goodwood Oval will commence soon. Providing local leadership, Co-Councillor Jennie & I pushed to have this included in the current budget of Council.
The Forestville Hockey Club will soon, as we all know, be moving to the Women’s Memorial Playing Fields. The move however is well into the future, as much as 3 or more years away. Rather than wait however, it is important that we consider the future use of this area now.
There are many possible solutions. There is bound to be many a competing interest in the strip of dirt located in the south east corner of the Goodwood Oval precinct.
We need time to work through options that will surface. Providing local leadership and working with and for you will see the best solution become apparent over time. Knowing the needs and aspirations of those who may stake a claim will prove a valuable asset to whomever will be providing local leadership during this exercise.
As a frequent user/visitor of Goodwood Oval I know what its limitations are. I also know the opportunities. Already having a relationship with all the possible interest groups as we consider the future use of the hockey field places me well to work with you and for you to enable the best solution to reveal itself.
