Our services: New kind of normal (7 August 2020)
Published 7 August 2020
Join the conversation and have your say on what top 3 things will make Playford even better for you. We also have $10 micro-chipping to keep your fur-family safe and fresh meals from the Grenville Hub.

Last chance: have your say

Over the past two weeks, the City of Playford has opened up the conversation with our community through our mini-meet sessions.

Through these small group discussions, Council has listened to what your top three priorities are and why.

A variety of priorities were brought to the table from infrastructure requirements and city presentation to access to community services and information.

This community input, along with hundreds of other online and postal submissions, will be collated to help develop the Strategic Plan 2020-2024.

There is still time for you to have your say. You have until 16 August to submit your top three priorities by visiting: https://playford.engagementhub...

What’s your top 3 mini-meet

Grenville Hub - delivering fresh meals

The Grenville Hub has extended their frozen meal service to include fresh meals.

The team at Grenville prepare fresh meals Monday to Friday which can be collected from the Grenville Hub or delivered to your door.

If you, a grandparent, parent, sibling or friend could benefit from this amazing service contact our friendly Grenville team on 8256 0377 for further information, including eligibility requirements.

$10 micro-chipping day

Pet registration renewals are due by the end of August, so there is no better time to book in your furballs for microchipping and keep them safe.

We've teamed up with Chipblitz to host a $10 micro-chipping day at The Precinct on Saturday, 15 August.

Playford businesses have their say

This year we received the highest survey responses to our annual Playford Business Survey in recent years. Thank you to all businesses who shared their feedback with us.

According to you, the most beneficial attributes of the City of Playford to your business were:

  • location
  • road networks
  • the growing population
  • proximity to similar businesses and supply chain partners

On Wednesday, 5 August Kat Milner, local business owner of Create your Change, was presented a prize by Mayor Glenn Docherty for completing the survey. Congrats Kat!
