Lighting at Otto Park, St Peters

02/06/2022

Consultation closed: 5pm, Friday 24 June

Google Map of Otto Park, St Peters 5069

 

 

 

Consultation has concluded. Thank you for participating.

As Otto Park is designated as an off-leash area for dogs, lighting can extend the time that residents and dogs can safely use the park in the evening, particularly in winter. 

The proposed lighting of Otto Park is designed to Australian Standards and complies with requirements to minimise light spillage into adjacent properties.

The lighting design proposes five LED luminaries along the north and south perimeters of the park.

The technology includes a photoelectric cell to turn off the lights in daylight as well as a timer to turn off the lights at a designated time (e.g. 9pm in winter and 10pm in summer).

To assist in the consultation process, the Council wants to know if you would prefer the lighting in Otto Park or for it to remain as is, without the additional lighting.

Background information

What the Council is doing to manage the basketball court

The Council has been undertaking a number of initiatives to better understand how the basketball court is used and to manage the impacts on nearby residents including:

  • installing signs advising the rules of use (eg: hours of play 8am to 8pm, no private coaching and no loud music, foul language and yelling)
  • painting the rule of use of 8am to 8pm on the basketball court
  • installing CCTV to monitor court use out of hours
  • time activating the Pavilion lights adjacent the court to turn off at 9.30pm in summer and 8.30pm in winter
  • patrols by Council’s compliance officers
  • enclosing power points in a cabinet to prevent public use (eg: for plugging in “boom boxes”).

Information about Felixstow Reserve

Felixstow Reserve is an open space facility that provides a range of recreation opportunities including a nature play area, outdoor fitness equipment, shelters, picnic tables, BBQs and toilets, green open space, walking trails and a basketball court.

The Reserve also showcases some of the rich cultural history of the Kaurna people – the traditional owners of the Adelaide Plains on which the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is located, and has an extensive network of wetlands adjoining the River Torrens.

The Reserve’s upgrade was the result of the implementation of the Felixstow Reserve Masterplan and comprehensive consultation with the community.

Since the Reserve’s upgrade and opening in 2019 it has become a highly valued and popular place enjoyed by the local and broader community.

Play equipment at Manning Reserve, Norwood

04/05/2022

Consultation closed: 5pm, Monday 23 May.

Manning Street Reserve

 

 

 

Consultation has concluded. Thank you for participating.

The Council is seeking your input in relation to the installation of children’s play equipment at Manning Reserve, in Fisher Street, Norwood.

There are currently three pieces of play equipment – a slide, spring rocker and a spinning pole - in the Reserve

The Council recently received a petition also calling for the inclusion of a swing set.

Due to the small size of the Reserve, the installation of a swing set would require the removal of either the slide or the spring rocker and the spinning pole.

Unfortunately, there is not enough room to have four pieces for equipment.

Consultation options

To assist in the consultation process, the Council has identified the following three play equipment options.
