Ben Willsmore, Manager City Design for the City of Unley, has provided the following update for the Village Green Cottages re-development.

“We are pleased to advise that the redevelopment of the Edmund Avenue Cottages is approaching completion, and we are targeting bringing down all site fences by the end of November. From early November, Little City, the tenants for the co-working cottages will start to move in and most of the paving and landscape treatments to the Village Green will be complete. The remainder of works, including access to the new public toilets, reinstatement of the Edmund Avenue landscaping and improvements to Rugby Street frontages are expected to be completed by the end of November.

The Council is pleased the works can be completed and the Village Green returned to the community before the end of the year. Council has worked closely with the builder to minimise the impacts of COVID, regarding supply of materials and wet weather, to ensure the building works can be delivered in a timely manner.”

Hi Everyone

You have received this email because you are either a:

  • City of Unley Councillor
  • SOS Unley Village Green Inc member
  • or a member of the City of Unley community known to me.

Some of you would be aware that I’m a member of the SOS Unley Village Green Inc (SOS). 

While the Unley Village Green has been saved from residential development, SOS recognises there is an opportunity to consider how the area can best be enjoyed by current and future residents of Unley. As a community based group we would value your opinion on possible improvements (if any) to the Unley Village Green. We invite you to share your opinions on what you would and would not support, by completing this survey, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/unleyvillagegreen.

Information from the survey will allow SOS to collate some community based data to present to the City of Unley Council.  Our aim is for the City of Unley Council to consider drafting and approving a management plan for this area, with sustained funding, by the Council for the years ahead for the agreed improvements.

The survey is anonymous, however the outcomes will be shared with the SOS committee and will be used in a submission to the City of Unley Council.

Many of you have friends, family, neighbours, who live in the local government area of the City of Unley. Please share the survey web link, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/unleyvillagegreen so they too can express their views.

In addition I’m aware that many elected Councillors have community distribution links and blogs which reach out to the City of Unley residents and constituents. I/We invite you to share the survey web link, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/unleyvillagegreen so there is an opportunity for the community to have a voice in this valued community recourse.

Thank you in anticipation.


Peter Simmonds

(The survey has been approved by the chairperson of SOS Unley Village Green Inc, Robert Freak.)
