16/07/2018

Consultation closed 5.00pm, Monday 6 August 2018

 Magill Road November 2017

 

 

The Council has engaged Tonkin Consulting to undertake its Stepney Maylands Evandale Local Area Traffic Management Study (LATM Study).

The LATM Study includes all local roads under the care, control and management of the Council located within the area bound by Portrush Road, Payneham Road and Magill Road (LATM Study Area).

The key objective of the LATM Study is to identify and address issues which exist within the Study Area associated with traffic management and safety for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. These issues include number of vehicles, speeds, cut-through movements and crashes.

The LATM Study does not include on-street parking as the Council is undertaking a City-Wide Parking Review as a separate project.

 

Study Stages

The LATM Study is being delivered in two community consultation stages. The timeline below contains a summary of the Study Stages.

Syd Jones Reserve Upgrade

18/06/2018

Consultation closed 5.00pm, Monday 9 July 2018.

 Syd Jones Reserve

 

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is upgrading Syd Jones Reserve, located on the corner of Sullivan Street and Coorara Avenue, Firle.

By upgrading Syd Jones Reserve, the Council will be providing a well-designed and innovative open space that will contribute to the vibrancy of the local area.

We are now seeking ideas from the local community to help shape the draft Concept Plan.

 

Why upgrade Syd Jones Reserve

The Council’s Open Space Strategy identifies the location of Syd Jones Reserve, situated between Firle and Payneham South, to be an area lacking in quality public open space.

The upgrade of Syd Jones Reserve will cater for the needs of the current and growing communities of Firle and Payneham South, as well as the anticipated increase in the number of young people in these suburbs in the future. Upgrades could include new play spaces and facilities, such as new play equipment and seating.

More information about Syd Jones Reserve, including relevant document links and an overview of existing facilities, is provided on this page.

Have your say

We are seeking feedback from the local community on what you would like to see at Syd Jones Reserve (e.g. new play equipment, seating, picnic facilities), and what elements you would like to keep (e.g. trees, grassed area).

You can have your say in the following ways:

Description and context

Open Space Strategy

The Council's Open Space Strategy, adopted in 2003, guides the provision, development and management of open space in the City.

The Strategy includes specific actions, guidelines and priorities that assist the Council to make informed and planned decisions regarding open space.

Syd Jones Reserve is currently designated as a Regional Level Reserve in the Council’s Open Space Strategy because of its unique range of activities including table tennis and the formerly operative tennis courts, however its size and functionality reflect a Neighbourhood Level Reserve.

Playgrounds Strategy Report

The Council's Playgrounds Strategy Report, adopted in 2006, provides the long term strategic direction for the future provision and management of playgrounds throughout the City.

The Strategy identifies the key issues associated with each of the playgrounds and outlines a strategic framework for the enhancement of these important community assets. 

An important outcome of the Playgrounds Strategy Report is the hierarchy of playgrounds, which aims to achieve different levels of provision and the best use of resources. 

The Playgrounds Strategy Report designates Syd Jones Reserve as a Neighbourhood Level Playground.  This Neighbourhood Level assumes that the playground will provide good quality, standard rather than unique, equipment that caters to arrange of different age groups.

Tennis Facilities Strategy

The two existing tennis courts currently located on Syd Jones Reserve are no longer in use. The tennis courts were recommended for removal in the Council’s Tennis Facilities Strategy developed in 2005. Specifically, the Strategy recommends removal of the courts on the basis that the courts are in poor condition and require full reconstruction and that there is an adequate supply of courts in close proximity. 

In addition, the Tennis Facilities Strategy recommends removing the tennis courts to provide better functionality and enhance the Reserve.

Existing facilities and assets

Facility/asset

Description

SES Building

Syd Jones Reserve was formerly the home of the Eastern Suburbs State Emergency Service (SES).

The building that housed the SES was constructed of besser blocks (cement brick) and was in relatively poor condition. Following the SES decision to vacate the site in 2015, the Council resolved to demolish the building and return the area to open space, as it was considered that it was not worth investing significant funds to upgrade the building; given the age and condition of the building. 

In 2016, the building was demolished and returned to simple landscaping to enable the area to be utilised until a Concept Plan for Syd Jones Reserve is developed and the Reserve is upgraded.

Table Tennis Academy

The Payneham Table Tennis Academy moved into the current location in Sullivan Street, Firle, in 1964. The facility houses six table tennis tables available for practising, competition match play and social table tennis.

In general the Council has been very supportive of the Club and has assisted the Club to improve its accommodation.

The Table Tennis Academy building would not be included in the upgrade of Syd Jones Reserve due to the funding resources allocated, however there may be opportunities to better integrate the outside of the building with the Reserve.

Playground

The playground equipment at Syd Jones Reserve is very limited, in very poor condition and is not in use. Whist maintenance renewal of this equipment is possible, the cost is high and for the same money, new equipment could be installed.

 Toilets

Syd Jones Reserve currently has male and female toilets which are in a dilapidated state and require demolition.

About the Plan

Under the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 (SA), all councils are required to have a plan relating to the management of dogs and cats in their area. The Plan must cover a five-year period and be approved by the Dog and Cat Management Board.

The Plan only relates to the management of dogs and cats, not other animals, within the Council area.

Amongst other things, the Council’s Plan provides for Dog On-leash and Off-leash Areas in parks and reserves throughout the City. At present, the Council has 11 dedicated Off-leash Areas. Specific conditions, including times of use, apply to each.

 

Recent changes to the Act

Recent changes to the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 (SA) come into effect on 1 July 2018, and will be included in the Council’s new Plan. It is important that you understand and comply with the new requirements.

From that date:

  • all dog registrations must be done online through the Dogs and Cats Online (DACO) database
  • all dogs and cats must be microchipped
  • all dogs and cats born after 1 July 2018 must be de-sexed.
