At its meeting on Tuesday 14 August 2018 Council considered the Community Engagement Outcomes Report which included the feedback received from the community and made the following decisions:

  • To spend $6.5m on Richardson Reserve over the next three years to build two synthetic soccer pitches and a new three-storey clubroom facility for Modbury Vista Soccer Club
  • To defer any decision regarding the development and future master plan on the recently acquired property at 9-29 Greenwith Road, Golden Grove

Community Engagement Outcomes Report

The agenda and Council report is available on Council's website.

Background

We are inviting the community to have their say about an unsolicited proposal from Kaufland Australia Pty Ltd to purchase a large portion of Richardson Reserve, Wynn Vale for $13.8 million (excluding GST).

Richardson Reserve is approximately 3.5 hectares in total area and the land being considered for transfer is approximately 3.4 hectares.

Kaufland Australia’s parent company, the Schwarz Group, is the world’s fourth largest retailer, operating over 1,200 Kaufland Stores and 10,000 Lidl stores throughout Europe and North America. Any questions regarding the detail about Kaufland’s proposal can be directed to the owners via their website.

As Richardson Reserve is classified as community land, the Community Land Classification of this reserve needs to be changed (or ‘revoked’) before any sale can occur. The revocation process requires that Council must consult with the community.
