Why has Council gone back out to consultation on the Salisbury Oval Master Plan?

City of Salisbury is encouraging the community’s input on their preferences for the future of the Salisbury Oval Precinct in order to shape its amended Salisbury Oval Master Plan.

The Plan has been amended in response to community feedback provided earlier this year in relation to the previous version of the Plan.

In order to produce the amended Plan, Council has engaged with the relevant sporting and recreational groups on their needs for the future and views on the use of the site.

Is Council maintaining recreational space?

Neales Green will be used as an open space recreational area in line with the community’s feedback.

Council is also inviting input on aspects of the site such as the design for recreational spaces along Brown Terrace.

Is Council planning to cut down established trees at the Oval site?

Council has made no decisions regarding trees at the site as it is still in consultation phase.

Why doesn’t the survey present an option for “no housing”?

Included within the survey is an open comments section where respondents may state any specific wishes for the site, including a preference for no housing in the future development area.

The question regarding preference for potential housing is optional, and if no response is recorded Council will assume the respondent would prefer no housing be developed.

Does Council have a plan for the area flagged for ‘Future development’ (marked in purple within the survey)?

Council is still in the consultation phase of the Salisbury Oval Master Plan and has made no decisions in relation to the nature of future development which may occur in the identified space.

What will happen after consultation closes (Saturday 9 November 2019)?

Council will review the community’s feedback in relation to the amended Plan and make appropriate recommendations.
