Will access to Hindmarsh Square/Mukata be affected during the event?

For the purposes of public safety access to the lease area will be restricted. However, this event will not restrict access to any footpaths, bicycle tracks or roadways around the square.

It is anticipated that a portion of the western access road adjacent Hindmarsh Square/Mukata will be partially closed to allow for the solar vehicle arrivals. A turning point and access for residents and businesses will remain open at the Grenfell Street end of the roadway.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, the event organisers will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands. 

The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the event.SA Motorsport Board has committed to undertaking procedures during the event to help maintain the grass in the lease area.

I have already seen a poster or advertisement for this event. Has it already been approved?

Approval for an event requiring public consultation is only given after the consultation period has concluded and Council has had the opportunity to review any submissions.

Council discourages any event from promotions prior to Council approval. In some instances, particularly national tours, there is a need for events to announce dates in each capital city.  This however does not constitute Council approval for the event.
