    The Croydon Avenue and Garnet Street - Reserve and Streetscape Project is all about improving the function and appearance of Croydon Avenue, Garnet Street and Croydon Avenue Reserve, between Port Road and Torrens Road.

    Preliminary community engagement in November 2016 provided useful feedback, but also revealed community confusion about the nature and intent of the project. The project team considered this feedback and has developed some 'Ideas for Improvement' for Croydon Avenue, Garnet Street and Croydon Avenue Reserve.

    We are now seeking further community feedback on the project.Go here for more information.

  • A new name for Bowden Brompton Community Centre?

    10 days ago
    Bowdenbrompton image

    In 2015 Council took over ownership of the Bowden Brompton Community Centre and we have been busy renovating and restoring it to create a more modern user friendly environment.

    The new and improved centre will have flexible rooms to hire including a fully equipped teaching kitchen and a play space to keep the kids entertained.

    So, with our new look we are wondering if the place should be given a new name to match. Share your thoughts and ideas about the centre name here.

  • Help shape the Urban Employment Zone DPA

    about 1 month ago
    Traffic night

    Council has prepared the draft Urban Employment Zone Development Plan Amendment (DPA) to replace the City’s Industry Zone in the Charles Sturt Council Development Plan with the Urban Employment Zone Module from the South Australia Planning Policy Library (SAPPL).

    A key objective of the draft DPA was to investigate the introduction of new policy from the South Australian Planning Policy Library (SAPPL) for land contained within the current Industry Zone. In turn, this will provide for increased flexibility of appropriate land uses within the zone that can generate employment opportunities for the City.

    We are now seeking community feedback on the proposed policy amendments. Go here to download documents, find out about an upcoming public meeting or share your views online.

  • Nominate your street for a Street Meet!

    We all know how much fun it can be to play a game of cricket, host a BBQ with neighbours or let the kids ride around safely on your street!

    So we are trialing ways to make it easier and more affordable for you and your neighbours to close your street for short periods of time for play, a street party or a special occasion.

    We are looking for several streets to test this approach out with us between late April and June this year. Ideas include an Easter party, ANZAC Day get together or Play Street during the school holidays.

    So if you live on a street with low traffic, with residents that are keen to organise and host a street meet and willing to undertake training to manage the road closure, then we would love to hear from you!
