Forestville Reserve Meeting 18th Dec
Early works in the creek channel
Consultation at last, this seems to be the greatest
difficulty with the Goodwood Junction project and the
associated works. Don and I have called for public consultation as we saw last night from DPTI right from the inception of the project. You need to get the concerned people together in one room to be really consulting, even if you may not like what they had to say.
In the case of Forestville Reserve these are associated works that are being completed now because of the Goodwood Junction project's tight timeline and because the project cuts directly through the current course of Brownhill Creek. The creek must be diverted before any work can start on creating the cutting for the Noarlunga line.
Devon St works have commenced with today being the day to remove the largest of the significant trees. We have been reassured that the wood will be retained by Council and reused in landscaping after the works are complete.
Council has promised to continue to consult with residents on the placement of the culvert in the Reserve, the location of the outlet to the creek and remediation of the Reserve when the works are complete. This sector is the responsibility of Council and forms part of a larger body of works being undertaken by the Stormwater Management Authority.
Peter Tsokas, Council CEO, offered to form a small working party for the final design works. If you want to be part of this then please let him know. (firstname.lastname@example.org) . I'm happy to walk anyone through the project if they wish.
