What is Adelaide City Council’s involvement in the project?
Although the Torrens Junction Project is managed and funded by State Government, Adelaide City Council has care, control and management of the surrounding Park Lands. Adelaide City Council has provided conditional support for the project and, to ensure that the project delivers outcomes that are beneficial to the city, the Council and its administration are working collaboratively with the Minister and the project team.
Why is the public being consulted at this stage?
Under the Local Government Act 1999, before a Council grants a lease or licence relating to community land (such as the Park Lands), it must follow the relevant steps set out in its public consultation policy.
What level of engagement is being undertaken?
Will the Minister keep this land at the end of the licence?
At the completion of the project and the end of the licence all of the land will be returned to the care and control of Council and be restored as open, accessible, green Park Lands.
How big is the area that the construction licence will cover?
Approximately 85,000m2 in total; this area will be reduced once the contractor has been selected and methodologies confirmed.
Will any trees have to be removed?
Small shrubbery will be impacted as a result of the location of the works compound. It is a condition of the licence that tree and shrubbery impacts are to be minimised.
Will I still be able to access Bonython Park / Tulya Wardli?
I play soccer in this park, will I still be able to train and play my scheduled soccer games here?
