Why is there only one preferred location for the building?
Why is this location different from the area identified in the original Masterplan for Victoria Park?
Why do we need public toilets in the southern sports field in Victoria Park/ Pakapakanthi?
Why do we need change rooms?
Previous feedback from current and potential users of the southern sports fields has identified a lack of appropriate amenities on site as a failing and not conducive to supporting formal use of the fields by community groups, in particular women.
Is this going to be used as a home change room for a club?
No, the Southern Sports Fields are not intended to be a ‘home ground’ for any one particular sports club or even one particular sport. Licence holders or organisations will have access to the change rooms at agreed times.
Who will be using the building?
Is this part of the Clipsal 500 annual build?
No. The Motor Sport Group (now part of the South Australian Tourism Commission) has been consulted during initial design phase but at this point have no interest in utilising this building. The location of the building does not impact on the current build of Clipsal 500 infrastructure.
How will Council stop anti-social behaviour?
Will the toilets be locked at night?
It is envisaged that the toilets will operate between 7 am and 10 pm at night. These times can be reviewed depending on demand for the use of the building.
What materials will be used?
Appropriate materials sensitive to the park lands environment.
How big will the building be?
Are there any green elements in the building design?
Where possible the design will incorporate sustainable and green elements.
Has Council allocated a budget for this project?
No. Council has received a grant of $200k from the State Government for the establishment of toilets and male/female change rooms in Victoria Park. It is estimated that the project will cost $750k to complete, however this is dependent on a number of factors including the location, extent of contamination and final design of the building. Once the community and stakeholder engagement has been completed and the results analysed, staff will present the results along with an appropriate budget request for Council's consideration.
When will work commence?
The work is likely to commence within the 2017/2018 financial year.
