    I notice the sign on the orphanage park in regard to the area being available less or more for dogs . I have two points to make : 1. We have been taking our dogs to this park for over 10 years and have witnessed a number of close calls with dogs running in front of traffic in the main entrance road heading south into the park area next to play ground . Has there been any consideration to fence that area on the inside of the footpath for the safety of children and dogs ? 2. Mental health is the no 1 health issue in our community along with loneliness. Pets play a very important role and it’s proven that dogs in particular are the no 1 support for people suffering with both of these issues. So I find it difficult to understand why the council would consider reducing the hours that people can come out side in a beautiful surrounds with their best friend . It also gets people connecting with like minded dog lovers in a sometimes friendships are formed

    Is there a neighbourhood Facebook page for Unley? I received a letter in my mail box a while ago which I ignored at the time, but since working in the West Croydon and Kilkenny area and being involved in these communities, I am very impressed by their neighbourhood fb forum. Love Campbelltown is another example of a very informative and interactive page for residents.

    Marigold asked about 1 year ago

    Hello, apologies for the delay in responding. I’m not aware of a general community group for Unley however there are a few Facebook group pages in existence by specific interest groups eg:

    • Unley Bicycle Users promote walking and cycling as an enjoyable, safe and effective transport option
    • Friends of Unley Oval support recreational users of the facility.

    Council has a series of Facebook pages that you may wish to follow, though not groups they do promote events and activities happening in Unley:

    • Unley Libraries
    • Fullarton Park Community Centre
    • Unley Community Centre
    • Clarence Park Community Centre
    • City of Unley Events.

    I hope this information is of some assistance, kind regards Karen.

    Residing in Goodwood for the past 28 years, I appreciate the new upgrade of King William Road. There will be a lot to like about it when it is finished. However, I am very frustrated by the planning and changes to the King William Road, Mitchell Street intersection. Travelling east along Mitchell Street toward KW road, there are now 2 problems that did not exist before. There is only one lane, so anyone turning left into KW Road, blocks through traffic. This is because of an extension of the footpath at that corner - not needed here in my opinion. To compound the problem, the light cycle is so short now, I sometimes I have to wait 3 cycles of the lights to get through to continue my travels along Park Terrace. I have spoken to a number of my neighbours, agreeing the present situation is very annoying. Can someone please look at this newly created problem. Regards Chris Purdie

    Chris Purdie asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question Chris. The Park/Mitchell St intersection is currently closed to traffic to allow for the installation of new traffic lights (reopening 6am Friday 4 October). Once installed and commissioned the new traffic lights will be reprogrammed to match the new intersection design. We thank everybody for their patience and ongoing support as we transform King William Road into Adelaide’s most loved main street.

    Hi I am wondering if jacaranda trees will be planted up and down Unley road. It would be a beautiful sight. Felicity.

    Felicity asked about 2 years ago

    Hi Felicity, thank you for your question.

    Greening options for Unley Road are currently being considered.

    Administration recently provided Council with a report on the feasibility of planting trees on either or both sides of Unley Road. If you’d like to read the report it can be found at Item 1099 of the February 2018 Council Agenda (https://www.unley.sa.gov.au/CityOfUnley/media/CoU-Media-Library/Council%20and%20Administration/Full%20Council/Final-Council-Agenda-26-February-2018-public.pdf?ext=.pdf).

    The report takes into consideration the advantages, issues, risks and costs associated with such a project.

    After considering the report, Elected Members carried the motion that:

    - Replacement trees be planted in the ten (10) vacant tree locations on the western side of Unley Road within the existing 2nd Generation Tree Strategy implementation and budget.

    - As part of the 2018/19 budget process, a future project to progress tree planting and other greening options along both sides of Unley Road to be considered.

    I hope this is helpful information.

    Regards

    Karen

    Recent debate at N,P&SP Council about Queensland Box street trees being a danger due to ball baring like gum nuts, and the identified health and safety risk. Residents of our street have been actively asking for years to replace the street trees, even offering to pay for the replacement, however Unley council has rejected any proposals. Is this something worth revisited now? Yes there would be a short term loss of tree canopy but residents have an interest in replacing it with suitable trees asap. Further, SA Power networks come every few years and completely butcher the trees for powerline protection, often noting Queensland Box is not a suitable street tree. Footpath sweeping in a waste of money - I sweep my footpath once a week, and still cant keep up, there is no way this could be a cost effective option.

    Hi, thank you for your message and apologies for the delay responding. 

    We are aware of the recent story within the local media and the investigation being undertaken by staff at the City of Norwood Payneham and St Peters regarding the Queensland Box street trees.

    The City of Unley follows a set of guiding principles for selecting and planting street trees in a responsible manner for the community, and takes a keen interest in the views and investigation outcomes undertaken by all neighbouring Councils on these types of issues, particularly when considering future planning. 

    Council’s recently adopted Tree Strategy includes ensuring a diverse and sustainable range of species is used through street tree planting and replacement across the City. If you are interested in reading more on the Strategy, please visit https://www.unley.sa.gov.au/council-administration/strategic-and-corporate-planning#hash-slide-corporate-strategies-191

    Are you going to pave the sloshy muddy walkway along Brownhill Catchment area between Second Avenue and First Avenue?

    Therese asked over 3 years ago

    Hi, thank you for your question. The Wilberforce Walk from Leah St to Second Ave was paved in May 2017, however I'm not sure if that is the section you're referring to. If it's a different spot, could you please provide details and I'll look into this for you? Regards Karen

    I posted a question which was responded to, however the simple question was not answered. But never mind. The post has not been listed here If posts are not put up here and if there is no mechanism for discussion on the posts that are put up here, then I can't see the difference between this "your say" forum and an email. Is this just a waste of time?

    squib asked over 3 years ago

    Hi, apologies for the mix up. The reply to your original question was posted "privately". I've just changed that to public and it now appears on the Your Say page. Regards Karen

    I noticed yesterday that another tree was cut down in Charles Street Forestville. I thought all the trees identified as unsound and requiring removal were taken down last year. Since then a number of mature trees have been removed. In essence every few months you cut a tree down. By the time you get around to planting new trees in Charles street there will be few mature trees left. Why did you cut down the tree yesterday? Are you going to cut down any more over the next year?

    squib asked over 3 years ago

    Thank you for your message. Unley Council has set policy process for the removal of any Council owned tree. It requires an appropriate Visual Tree Assessment be undertaken and where a tree is approved for removal affected residents are notified. Residents and property owners are able to object to the removal of a tree within a defined 10 day window.

    You may wish to view our Tree Strategy online (http://bit.ly/2t7NJ2n) which outlines the issues and challenges we face and our objectives for the regeneration and expansion of Unley’s Urban Forest. 

    Regards

    Hi Please advise on why it seems quite difficult to find the school holiday program on your website - 2 weeks out from the holidays.

    HI I would like to know what the latest is on the painting of the Goodwood underpass? Is it likely to go ahead? I hope so as it could add so much to that particular part of the road, especially in conjunction with the upgrade of Good wood Rd.

    Rachael asked about 4 years ago

    Thank you for your question. Unley Council has been working in close association with Steph Key MP and the Department of Transport and Infrastructure for several years now on a long term solution for an infrastructure improvement for the Underpass ( which is owend by State Governmnent). To underatke this work we envisage a staged process.

    We have planned some panels to be installed on the pedestrian walkway beneath the train line which tells the stories of Goodwood  and the environs during Gallipoli. These panels will aslso act as a community engagement process to seek ideas from the community as to what they would like to see done with the underpass from an environmentla nd artistic point of view. We hope to install thse panels soon.

    It is a rather ugly peice of infrastructure now an dmany stakehlders in teh local area are keen to find ways of beautifying the Underpass. If you are interested in staying in touch with this project may we suggest you contact Steph Key's office.

    Thanks for your interest Matthew Ives
