Mayor Glenn Docherty welcomes you to the City of Playford. Whether you live, work, play, build or connect in the City, we have resources, project and information to support your needs.
As the fastest growing Council in our state, we make up a vibrant community with many different needs and wants.
So as a progressive and forward thinking Council we know that it’s the things we do and don’t do that determine, more than anything else, how well our city is run.
Community pride is important to us all, so every day you’ll see us out working, mowing verges, repairing roads and footpaths, removing unsightly graffiti and controlling litter so our neighbourhoods are more attractive and safer.
At Playford we love our sport, and we’re the home of Centrals Districts Football Club, but we also look after other sporting codes and provide popular recreational facilities with lighting, clubrooms, and playgrounds.
We are also creating sustainable wetlands that not only provide lakes and parks with walking and cycling trails for a healthy lifestyle, but also make us less reliant on other costly water sources.
Our social programs encourage collaboration with local businesses and youth organisations to create skills training programs to provide local jobs for local people.
To keep pace with growth, we have developed a Playford Masterplan with special precincts and social hubs to connect us with our neighbours and give us our real community spirit.
Furthermore, so we can develop new and exciting initiatives to ensure a bright future here for our children and grandchildren, we are committed to becoming financially sustainable by 2014/15.
Our aim is to make Playford the best place to live, work, play...and grow.
