The Goodwood Oval Grandstand redevelopment is moving toward construction.
Detailed designs suitable for a development application are underway now to allow this. To get it to this point there remains much work to do. The Council and its community need to oversee this step and indeed the construction process itself.
I am looking forward to providing the leadership to ensure the best result.
Our community needs an up to date, safe and inclusive Goodwood Oval.
The Grandstand Oval Grandstand redevelopment needs to accommodate the needs of both the Football & Cricket Clubs. Particularly with the advent of female participation in both sports. A venue that is safe & hygienic. A venue that is welcoming.
Ideally it should provide a better watching environment for the supporters of both clubs. A venue that provides watching in comfort in all seasons.
It should also be a venue for the use of the wider Clarence Park Ward community. Other City of Unley community groups should be able to access the venue when not in use by the clubs. Why can’t it be a venue that can be used by Council and/or the local residents.
Finally, it needs to be a venue that fits into the landscape and compliments the amenity if the area.
The next Council, not the current Council, will be responsible to sign off on the final design. That is the design that will be built.
I undertake to continue to providing the leadership needed in working for you and with you to ensure the Goodwood Oval Grandstand Redevelopment is the best solution for our whole community.
