Minutes from previous meeting [on goodwoodoval.org]
No items brought forward.
Update on Liquor license application Tennis Club (GW & JF)
The current lease for the management of the facilities and management of tennis matches and coaching will expire in June of this year. Council leases the facility to Tennis SA. Tennis SA have a management arrangement with John Friend and Ben Milner [coach]. Discussions are underway now between Council and Tennis SA and need to be finalised as soon as possible. While these more fundamental matters are being dealt with the Liquor License application is being kept on hold for now.
Update on change of funding for Goodwood Oval Complex (GSFC)
Following the failure to agree on future upgrades at the Millswood Complex funds have now been made available for projects at the Goodwood Oval Complex. The priority project is the upgrading of facilities for the main stand at Goodwood Oval, home of the Goodwood Saints FC and Clarence Gardens CC. The building needs restoration work and upgrading of the facilities. A recent need is a requirement to properly look after women footballers who play and train there. Council have engaged architects who are now doing drawings. We understand this is a very challenging project with many constraints to contend with.
Reports given verbally.
RR Katia F reports that oval bins are not being emptied as often as needed.
