    At its meeting of 28 March 2017 Council approved beginning the process of negotiating a long-term lease for a café/restaurant to occupy the Town Hall Courtyard and begin the public consultation process.

    The Courtyard, which is currently vacant, is located at the rear of the main Town Hall civic building and has operated in various formats as a café and function facility for almost 25 years.

    Council is examining the feasibility of granting a long term lease for the establishment of a café/restaurant in the City of Adelaide Town Hall Courtyard.

    Council is seeking feedback on granting a 7 (seven) year Lease with 2 (two) x 5 (five) year renewal options to operate a licensed café/restaurant on this site.

    Background

    The Town Hall Courtyard is part of the central heritage listed City of Adelaide Town Hall Complex, which comprises the Town Hall and Price Alfred Chambers (King William Street), Eagle Chambers (corner of King William and Pirie Streets), Gladstone Chambers and Queens Chambers (Pirie Street).

    An opportunity is now available for a café/restaurant to occupy this unique site which will complement the civic culture and history of the Town Hall complex whilst activating the vacant site and creating a relaxed, friendly dining atmosphere.

    The proposed lease area is a portion of Town Acre 203 contained in Certificate of Title Volume 6136 Folio 364.

    It is a legislative requirement to undertake community consultation on a Lease over community land that is for a term of greater than five years.

    Benefits of the project

    This restaurant opportunity offers a chance to activate a unique city space with a “sustainable greening” edge and provide a meeting place for the general public to come and enjoy wonderful food and beverages in a pleasant atmosphere.

    This Lease will be managed in accordance with the Community Land Management Plan.
