We invited the community to have their say on the proposed classification change of Knox Park, Morphett Vale from the classification ‘Reserve’ to the classification ‘Sportsgrounds’. Consultation opened on 23 May 2018 and closed on 15 June 2018.

BACKGROUND

The City of Onkaparinga approved public consultation to be undertaken with the community to amend the Community Land Management Plan (CLMP) for the land located at Knox Park, Morphett Vale.

On 20 February 2018, Council considered a report at Item 9.1 Athletics at Knox Park Business Case, where it resolved (in part):

  • That Council continue to work with Southern Athletic Club on the feasibility and necessary consultation with the community for change of use of using Knox Park as an interim home for the club in the short term and potentially permanent home in the long term.

Changing the classification will intensify the use of the reserve and allow sporting clubs to utilise the reserve for sporting purposes, which could potentially include the building of structures such as club rooms, onsite parking, training lights and fencing.

Under the existing Community Land Management Plan, Knox Park Reserve is classified as:

  • Reserve, further sub-categorised as Developed Reserve and Screening Buffer in the Generic Management Plan for Reserves.

Council is considering amending the classification of Knox Park Reserve to:

  • The Generic Management Plan for Sportsgrounds further subcategorised as a District Sportsground.

Changing the classification will allow sporting clubs to utilise the reserve for sporting purposes.
