Why are only certain times available on the River Torrens?
Weekday early mornings (6-10am) and late afternoons (4-6pm) are identified as peak times for active recreation such as rowing which take priority over commercial businesses.
Current commercial businesses do not usually operate within these hours on weekdays.
Taking into account current rowing schedules and operating hours of existing commercial business licence holders, there is currently no capacity for additional commercial businesses to operate before 11.30am on weekends.
These operating hours will be reviewed as existing licences are due for renewal.
After the prescribed closing date, all EOI applications will be acknowledged by the contact person via email or letter.
All EOI applications received will be reviewed and assessed against the Selection Criteria contained within this Information Pack by a review panel. Please note that due the competitive nature of this EOI process administrative staff are unable to provide specific advice and information to applicants as this may give your application a commercial advantage over other applications.
This process will then be subject to a report to Council in which a recommendation will be made to Council on which application best addressed the selection criteria.
Once a decision has been made by Council all EOI applicants will be notified whether they have been successful or note.
Formal agreements between Council and the successful applicants will then be negotiated and completed before leases and/or licences are issued.
**Please note that any submissions received after the EOI close date will not be considered. **
