    What is the proposed schedule for this project? Commencement date to completion? How will you control noise and traffic disturbance for the residents during construction phase?

    PaloRes asked over 2 years ago

    Hi PaloRes, thanks for your question. In response:

    There is a lengthy process before any construction can commence. This process involves two rounds of community consultation, Council’s endorsement, Ministerial approval, a land division application and approval, new titles issued, community land revocation, and a further round of community consultation for the playground. Overall, it may take around two years. 

    If the project progresses to construction, there are legislative requirements that builders must abide by to control construction noise and traffic. Surrounding residents would be welcome to contact Council to report any issues that arise during this period.

    Kind regards, Sarah

    Is there plans to upgrade the playground with amenities for the locals?

    PaloRes asked over 2 years ago

    Hi PaloRes, thanks for question. In response:

    The development options presented include the upgrade of the remaining reserve area for community use, including a new playground, tree planting, irrigated grass 'kickabout' area and footpath connections. The design of the reserve and playground upgrade will be informed by community feedback and Council’s Open Space Policy. 

    Kind regards, Sarah

    How does this new development benefit residents? Information sheet states ‘create jobs’, jobs for residents? Locals? Will the developer be a local? Actual work completed in South Australia not overseas? How will you ensure you statement is met?

    PaloRes asked over 2 years ago

    Hi PaloRes, thanks for your question. In response:

    The construction industry sector makes the greatest contribution to economic output in the region, which at $931.5 million accounts for 17.11% of total output, and is the fourth largest employer in the City of Tea Tree Gully. Also, one of the key principles embedded in Council’s Procurement Policy when engaging the private sector is to “Buy Local.” This means Council will endeavour to support local businesses where local suppliers can demonstrate capability, capacity and competitiveness.

    Kind regards, Sarah

    Does the existing infrastructure (power, drainage, stormwater, etc.) have the capacity to withstand the new demand of best case scenario seven new dwellings? If not, how will you guarantee minimal disturbance to residents?

    PaloRes asked over 2 years ago

    Hi PaloRes, thanks for your question. In response:

    Development can only occur with the provision of adequate utilities and services that are capable of accommodating the increased load associated with development. This includes electricity supply, water supply, drainage and stormwater systems, waste disposal, gas and telecommunication services. If the proposal proceeds further, Council will work with service providers to ensure capacity is available for the new development.

    Kind regards, Sarah
