What is the purpose of this engagement?
What is Goodwood Oval used for?
Goodwood Oval caters for wide range of uses and is a popular location for the local community as a park, play space and for dog exercise. The Goodwood Oval precinct is also the home ground for Goodwood Saints Football Club, Goodwood Cricket Club, Forestville Hockey Club and Tennis SA Millswood Complex (also comprising Goodwood Saints Tennis Club).
What is included in the grandstand upgrade?
How were the designs developed?
The designs have been developed in consideration of the local level facility guidelines for Australian Rules football and cricket, and in consultation with representatives from the Goodwood Saints Football Club and Goodwood Cricket Club.
What are the dimensions of the existing grandstand compared with the new one?
What is proposed for the storage facility near the Fairfax Ave car park?
How will the upgrades be funded?
What is the proposed timeline for the upgrades?
Will access to the oval be impacted during the construction period?
The area around the new grandstand and external storage facility will be fenced during the construction period, and access to all other areas at Goodwood Oval will not be impacted. Council will work with the football and cricket clubs to discuss temporary facilities during the construction period and further updates will be provided once this is resolved.
What will happen with my feedback and what are the next steps of the project?
Your feedback will be recorded and considered by the project team to further refine the designs for the new grandstand at Goodwood Oval. This information will be presented to Council in April 2018.
Where can I get more information?
What is the impact on trees?
The cork trees to the south of the current grandstand are significant and measures will be put in place to protect these trees. The final design may result in the loss of some trees to the north of the current grandstand. This is still being determined and further information will be provided as soon as the designs are finalised. The intention will be to retain as many trees as possible, and enhance the landscaping around the new building.
Is this project related to the lighting DA for the football club?
They are two individual projects and will be assessed seperately under the relevant development planning legislation, however both projects relate to the use of Goodwood Oval for organised sport and community recreation, so they are connected. Council will consider the views of all stakeholders when considering its decision.
