Full Council Meeting: April 23rd 2018

I was an apology for this meeting but can report the following:
  • 2018/19 Draft Annual Business Plan: Council is considering a rate increase of 2.5%. This will include Capital Replacement of $7.62m and New Capital of $8.32m. Community Consultation will occur between April 26th and May 25th. You will find lots of information on the Council website. There will also be 5 public meetings in an effort to get comment out of more than the usual one or two people. The closest one will be at Clarence Park CC on 10th May (6:30-7:30pm). There will also be a meeting at Goodwood Library on May 10th (10:30-11:30am). Other locations are on the website. This was PASSED. The link to read the document hand have your say can be found here .
  • Goodwood Oval Grandstand Redevelopment-Results of Community Consultation: Overall 95 responses were received by Council, almost all of these from Unley residents. A summary of changes to the plan include: 
  1. Material colour and selection appropriate to the neighbourhood character, landscape plans and retention of as many trees as possible
  2. Grandstand footprint within the footprint of the existing building, if possible
  3. No gaming machines and  new use agreements with the clubs to increase the opportunity for Community use without further noise impact and sensitive Liquor Licensing
  4. No additional storage
  5. Access to public toilets    PASSED
This will now go to the Development Assessment Panel after an application for development has been lodged by Council
  • Draft On-street parking Policy: The Residential Parking Policy has been updated for Community Consultation. This includes changes to the current permit system. PASSED
  • Land Use-Oxford Tce: Council are considering changing the use of this land to that of a carpark. It was used by Kirinari School and has been open to the public as a play area for some time. PASSED
  • Tree Canopy Objectives: A motion proposed by Cr Hewitson was amended to a more simple motion with the same affect. Opportunities to plant more trees with a potential to become significant on both Council and private land are imperative. PASSED
  • Addressing the Campaign on Rate Capping: Cr Schnell asked Council to consider its association with the anti-rate capping campaign. LOST
  • Shared Use Concept Zone for Almond St: Another attempt to get this project of the ground was also LOST
