    This consultation has now concluded.

    Council is asking you to have your say regarding the draft Playground Strategy and Action Plan to ensure it will fulfil the community’s expectations and desires for the future management of some of Council’s most popular assets.

    The Playground Strategy is used to guide the management, maintenance and design of playgrounds within the City of Burnside. The first version of the City of Burnside’s Playground Strategy was endorsed in 2007 and has now been reviewed.

    The review was undertaken to ensure that the strategy remains relevant to the current needs and desires of the community while setting realistic goals in terms of management and maintenance of some of the City’s most popular assets.

    The principles of the Playground Strategy remain the same, and the overall vision of the strategy is to provide “a range of play experiences that are accessible, safe and fun”.

  • Cat Management By-law

    Cat

    This consultation has now concluded.

    Council is seeking community comment on a proposed cat management by-law which, if accepted, will involve micro-chipping, de-sexing and limits to the number of cats per household.

    Cat management by-laws are not new or uncommon. Of the 68 incorporated councils in South Australia at least a third currently have some form of cat by-law.

    Recently, the Dog and Cat Management Board have worked with the Local Government Association to jointly develop a template and set of guidelines for a cat by-law template for councils to consider. Council has used this template and its guidelines to develop a draft cat management by-law that will form the basis of our community engagement.

    If the community supports the introduction of a by-law for cat management, and it is endorsed by Council, the draft by-law could come into force in early 2015. However, Council will require an implementation phase of 18 months, with no registration fee payable during that time.

    Go to the consultation page to find out more.

    Information on the removal of woody weed species and continued restoration of the reserve.

    The Michael Perry reserve contains a section of Second Creek and many historical horticultural tree specimens from the original Clifton Estate garden.

    Over time the reserve has been over-run with large woody weeds creating an environment in which native understory plants cannot grow and thrive; and an environment that is vulnerable to erosion during flood events.

    In 2012 the Council implemented the Michael Perry Botanic Reserve Vegetation Management Plan to protect, conserve and partially restore the Reserve’s historical exotic flora, native vegetation and fauna habitats with the removal of woody weeds. 

    In March this regeneration and restoration works will continue.
