Clarence Park Ward briefing update

 As you are aware we meet every three months for a update from staff regarding items/issue in the ward. This week we discussed:   


  • Millswood Croquet clubrooms: These are proceeding and have gone to tender. Approval for a slightly larger footprint is being applied for as a development amendment. The club will fund the extras.
  • Goodwood Oval: the replacement of the dog bowl near the new construction and the perceived increased noise from the sirens during games: At public request the dog bowl that was removed during construction of the grandstand will be replaced near the toilet are. Council will also determine if the more frequent sirens from the oval (as there are more games) are  too loud.
  • Redevelopment of Mills St: The drainage works are about to be commenced. The rebuilding of the street will start soon after the completion of the drainage works. This is a project that has been fought hard for and long awaited by residents.
  • Status of the Goodwood Oval hockey ground: Council will soon consult the community to see what they want in this area if and when the hockey depart.
  • Leasing of Page Park tennis courts: Headstart have been allowed to trial a youth program at the courts. This will mostly be in an after school timeslot.
  • Turf at Page Park: The new turf looks pretty tired. Staff are hoping to see a recovery with warmer weather and watering
  • Parking near the Clarence Park kindergarten: This remains a concern. Staff  believe that there is plenty of unrestricted parking available in Kelvin Ave for long term parking.
  • Leases at Goodwood Oval: These will be discussed by councillors at a briefing on Sept 20th.
  • Commuter parking in Aroha Tce and surrounding streets: This issue seems never to resolved as more people opt to park in these streets and commute to the city.
  • Stormwater management: Home Rd will be designed in 2021 and constructed in 2022, Wilson Ave will be done soon and Hammond St will be designed and constructed this financial year.
