Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The Master Plan for Unley Oval is progressing with elected members due to be briefed early next year on it’s progress.

The consultants charged with creating a master plan is in the process of speaking to key stakeholders, repeating what we have already done previously during our own engagement period. This we expect to be completed by the end of February in order to meet the April deadline for presentation to Council of a draft master plan.

Elected Members are due to be briefed on the process and to be consulted about their own views early next year (late January).

Despite disquiet from within our ranks that we should be consulted about our views prior to the noted key stakeholders, the process is moving well and the consultants simply gathering information so that they can better judge likely outcomes.

As representatives of the community it is our job to listen to the community (both clubs and residents) and then form our own view.

Looking forward to it…… And to repeating the dose over here in the west at Goodwood Oval and Millswood Park later in the year.
