Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Having learnt from the forerunner to a whole of suburb LATM pioneered by your Goodwood South Councillors in Black Forest we now have a whole of suburb LATM in Forestville and Everard Park.

The second of a number of City Wide LATM’s this one is bought about by the widespread condemnation, including from Goodwood South residents of the use of the speed cushions in Leah Street.

Provided at the request of Leah Street residents and without consideration of the likely impact on neighbouring streets and indeed the inconvenience of their southern neighbours in Black Forest, Clarence Park and Millswood I expect they will be a focus of the LATM.

Public Consultation has commenced, with letters going to all residents of Forestville and Everard Park. While Black Forest, Clarence Park and Millswood residents will not be recipients of these letters they can contribute to the survey.

There are a number of ways you can participate:
  • Completing an on-line feedback form, or
  • If a local resident who received the letter mentioned above: Attending a Community Meeting/Workshop on 24 August 2014 between 11.30 am to 1.30 pm, at the Goodwood Community Centre, 32-34 Rosa Street, Goodwood SA 5034. 
    At the workshop, you will be able to share your knowledge and concerns about local traffic and parking issues as well as put forward any ideas you have about potential actions to address the problems. Your views will be helpful in assisting Council to address the traffic issues for the area. 
    Interested residents will also have an opportunity to become part of a Community Reference Group (CRG) who will work with council staff and consultants to develop traffic options for the study area. More information on the CRG will be provided at the workshop.In order to assist us for catering purposes, if you are thinking of attending the workshop, can you please RSVP by Friday, 15 August 2014 to Justine Short on:Email: [email protected]

I encourage Goodwood South residents, whether from Black Forest, Clarence Park or Millswood to participate. In so doing let council know your address (or at least your suburb) so they can value appropriately your opinion.
