  • Petition received - New play equipment for Woodswallow Parkway Reserve

    supporting image

    Petition request to council:

    " As our area is a new residential area, we don’t have access to a proper park and playing equipment (slide, monkey bar, swing) for children and adults. There is a small park but no playing equipment for children. I have surveyed and interviewed almost 80% of people in our area; most of them have children aged 0 to 15, and adults over 65-years-old. This diverse group needs a proper park for physical activity.

    They want play equipment for their children. It is also an United Nations Sustainable Development Goal to provide safe and green space public areas for all children, men, women, and disabled persons. In addition, lack of physical activity causes physical and mental problems in children and adults.

    Note: because lack of equipment our children are forced to play in the street, which is quite dangerous for them as some of the drivers drive their cars very fast."

    Petition request to Council:

    "I would like to request that the foot paths around the new shops at Southern River are assessed for walking, cycling, mobility scooters etc. Ideally we would like a footpath along Holmes St from Matison to Southern River Road, and across the front of the vacant lot between Campine and Holmes Street parallel to Southern River Road. As part of this assessment we would also like the council to check that there is adequate footpaths from the new school Yarralinka Primary School connecting to the shops, and from Sutherland Park to the new shops."

  • Petition Received - Reverse any approval or Budget consideration for BBQs to be installed at Sandringham Park.

    by Caroline Walker,
    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
    supporting image

    Petition request to Council:

    "This will bring unwanted social behaviour and disrupt the peaceful community atmosphere that already exists. This community park does not have enough parking and has two many street bends to be adding additional cars parked. Not to mention the additional rubbish that is bound to accompany the use of BBQs. Most often BBQs are found partnered next to parks with ovals, where there is a desire to gather for lengthy periods. This is a very active community that enjoys the unique small reserves leading to each other and certainly benefits from the peaceful surrounds enjoyed during active walks or the appearance of more private relaxation areas. If the BBQs do go ahead and not prove the above then possibly may be a wasted expense to not be positioned in more desirable surroundings. This active community most certainly will appreciate the Gym Equipment over the BBQs."

    The Council considered a report at its ordinary meeting on 11 August, 2020 in response to a petition requesting the City reinvigorate and revitalise Homestead Park and the Thornlie Community Centre, Thornlie.

    Council resolved to review the petition and noted there is a commitment to improve the Thornlie Community Centre this year.

    The City's 2020/21 capital works budget has provided for the replacement of the gymnasium ceiling ($75,770) and to upgrade the ablutions and kitchens at the Thornlie Community Centre ($232,050).

    In regard to Homestead Park, the park is not reticulated. However, the City has a program for converting dry parks as part of its Green Space Planning Program. The program aims to undertake three to four parks projects from across the City each year.
