As an individual will I still be able to use Parks 10 & 12?

There is a desire to encourage and continue the passive use of Parks 10 & 12 by individuals, families and groups of friends for social activities such as such as picnics and barbeques, and other informal recreation.

How will this affect the users of Parks 10 & 12?

It is envisaged that the proposed 42 year lease will not affect users of Park 10 & 12. As currently experienced, the community will continue to benefit from unrestricted access to Parks 10 & 12, with exception of organised scheduled sporting usage.

What change will be seen?

The only physical proposed change that will be evident in Parks 10 & 12 will be the redevelopment of clubrooms. The University of Adelaide has already received Development Plan Consent to demolish 4 buildings and to construct a new clubroom in Park 10.
Parks 10 & 12 are currently under the management and control of the University of Adelaide and this will be a continued arrangement.

What are the fees and will they be discounted over the 42 year period?

The fees that are associated with this lease are determined in accordance with the Park Lands Property Strategy which can be found by clicking here.
No discount is being offered to the University of Adelaide in exchange for the proposed longer term lease.

What happens to my feedback?
