Background

We are inviting the community to provide feedback about a proposal to have a permanent shipping container at Tilley Recreation Park as a storage, canteen and bar facility.

Since July 2021 the Tea Tree Gully City Soccer Club (TTGCSC) has been using a shipping container at Tilley Recreation Park in Surrey Downs for temporary storage, following approval from Council. The container is located next to the southernmost pitch at the park and since its placement, the club has added paving and a small retaining wall to the surrounds to improve access.

The club has now requested a permanent underground power connection to the shipping container, and proposes to use the container for the service of pre-packaged alcohol and canteen products during matches and training via a purpose built server window.

The TTGCSC obtained a $14,000 grant towards the purchase and installation of the shipping container, and has acquired the services of club sponsors to undertake the works required for the infrastructure to be fitted for its proposed purpose. The club has not requested a financial contribution from Council towards this project. The club would be responsible for all ongoing maintenance and repairs to the container and ongoing electricity use.

As the Community Land Management Plan for Tilley Recreation Park does not reference such infrastructure (permanent storage, canteen, bar), Council’s approval is required for the infrastructure to remain on the land, subject to the outcomes of a community engagement process. This plan would be amended to reflect the addition of a permanent storage, canteen and bar facility at this reserve, should this be approved by Council.
