Planning for Goodwood Oval and the Millswood Sporting Complex
The City of Unley is developing Improvement Plans for both Goodwood Oval and the Millswood Sporting Complex. As a resident who may use these facilities, you are invited to provide information and make comments to assist us with the planning.

Please return the form to Council in the reply paid envelope provided or respond online by 5.00pm, Friday 7 March 2014.
We also invite you to join us at Community Information Sessions, which will be held at each sports complex in March 2014 to present initial directions and Concept Plan ideas.  Staff from the City of Unley will be on hand to take your feedback and answer any questions that you might have about the initial Concept Plans and the study.

  1. Please provide the budget details for this work.
    Are we going to have another Orphanage saga?

  2. At this time Council has budgeted $50,000 for this project. This should pay for staff and consultants to consult with residents and clubs currently using the complex and to develop a concept plan that is agreed to by as many parties as possible. Development, if that is a desired outcome, will only proceed if Council can win grants to assist in paying for any proposed changes.The surveys were sent to homes within 1.4km of the complexes and all residents are encouraged to Have Their Say. Information about what the clubs would like was collected during the Community Asset Review. Council has real particular outcome in mind, it may well be that in the end Council decides to do nothing if this is the wish of the people and clubs.
