Council is indicating that the ability to undertake organised personal training sessions at Ashgrove Sports Ground will be restricted to starting after 7:00am. This will severely impact the ability of many local residents, the majority of whom work and/or have school-age children, to participate in outdoor group exercise sessions in our local parks and sports grounds.

Your petitioners therefore request that Council permit the continuation of personal training sessions commencing from 5:30am on weekdays at Ashgrove Sports Ground.

Council response

Thank you for your petition requesting that Council permit the continuation of personal training sessions commencing from 5.30am weekdays at Ashgrove Sportsground Park, at Yoku Road, Ashgrove.

Council has completed an onsite investigation and considered your request. Council is supportive of the request to operate personal training at 5.30am in Ashgrove Sportsground Park, Ashgrove, on a trial basis. A parks use consent permit would be required by the personal trainer, with Council officers undertaking a follow up assessment in three months to ensure surrounding residents are not being affected by the early morning starts.

Thank you for raising this matter.
