Full Council meeting August 27th, 2018

Hoardings can look good?

The following might be of interest:

  • Weller St Bike Boulevard: Approved now that detail has been provided by staff.  PASSED
  • Goodwood Cricket Nets: An additional $10,000 from Council to complete necessary safety changes at the cricket nets, new base, new enclosures and  a flatter surface will reduce the risk of injury to players and passers by. PASSED
  • Lease of property at 18 Trimmer Tce: Now that Kirrinari have vacated the building Council is in need of a tenant prepared to pay a commercial rate. PASSED
  • Hoarding Fees : Council charges commercial developments a fee to install hoarding on public land. Council was prepared to reduce the fee for developments that take a long time but not to the extent that staff had suggested.
  • King William Rd-Detailed Design: the final plan , that has been extensively consulted was approved by Council. This will now proceed to documentation. PASSED
  • On-Street Parking Policy: this has been overhauled after consultation with residents. The new plan will allow for some business parking and make some residential parking available for general use during the day. PASSED
  • Wine Bottle Deposit Legislation: this motion called for support for legislation to include wine bottles in the returnable container legislation. Of Unley recycled waste a remarkable 25% is wine bottles. Taking this out of the waste stream would save Council $65,000 per year and bottle collectors would add over $200,000 to their coffers. PASSED
  • Plastic Straws at Council Events: Cr Schnell asked that they be banned. PASSED
