"Bunnings will be a significant local employer and
will draw on a consumer catchment area that will in-
clude the Barossa, Mid North and Northern Adelaide
Plains," he said.
"This will bring more people to Gawler and opens
up more opportunity for other businesses to take ad-
vantage of this new business in Gawler."
Mr Harrison said once all information had been
received on the application, council would conduct
"a full assessment".
"The application will soon proceed through a pub-
lic consultation process," he said.
"This means that all adjoining landowners will be
notified of the application, given a chance to review
the details, make a submission, and should they wish,
appear before the Development Assessment Panel to
speak to their submission.
"After this consultation process a full and final as-
sessment will be undertaken."
Mr Harrison said he was unsure when construction
would begin or when the store would open.
"This is dependent upon an approval being issued...
time frames for the construction are the responsibil-
ity of the developer," he said.
Bunnings did not respond to The Bunyip's request
for comment on the development.

Bunnings on way ROSEWORTHY Childcare
Centre's director is remaining
optimistic about the facility's
future, despite losing funding
from the University of Adelaide.
The centre, which is located on
the University of Adelaide's Rose-
worthy campus and is run by an
independent representative manage-
ment committee, is facing the pos-
sibility of closing its doors after Uni-
versity of Adelaide confirmed to The
Bunyip last week it could no longer
afford to fund it.
Roseworthy Childcare Centre di-
rector Rose Muirhead said she had
not given up hope that the centre
would remain open.
"We would like to inform the
community that we are still in opera-
tion and are currently in the process
of discussions, meetings and seeking
further guidance," she said.
"We will inform the community
of the outcome as soon as one is

Centre would like to thank the fam-

University of Adelaide communi-
cations manager Kate Husband said
the centre had been running at a loss
for several years and the university
could no longer afford to fund it.
"The university has subsidised
the Roseworthy Childcare Centre
for many years, however the level of
subsidy has been steadily increasing
over that time," she said.
"It is now at a point that is un-
sustainable at a forecast annual
total of $180,000...the university
has already provided $70,000 this

A TERROR looms in Gawler's skies, waiting to
attack any unsuspecting victim that crosses its
Magpie attacks in the region have been rampant
in recent weeks as the birds prepare for nesting
The aggressive birds have been swooping and
terrorising any person or animal that crosses into
their territory, pecking at them with their sharp
beaks and, in some cases, leaving injuries.
Attacks have occurred in Gawler, Freeling,
Roseworthy, Hewett, Willaston, Evanston, Evanston
Park and Gawler South.
Ovals and parks are hot spots, with swooping
occurring at Clonlea Park, Gawler Central oval and
South Gawler oval, St Brigid's Catholic School oval
and Trinity College South.
Fauna Rescue member Anne Bigham said the best
way to stay out of harm's way was to avoid potential
"They are setting up nests, spring is coming," she
"The last couple of weeks we have noticed them
starting to swoop and carry on."
Mrs Bigham said there was a belief that the birds
were more active around dawn and dusk, although
that was not always the case.
"At the moment, they could attack at any time,"
The Bunyip received a significant response when it
posted a call-out to magpie victims on its Facebook
page, with around 15 people sharing their harrowing
experiences from the past two weeks.
Several people have received wounds following
attacks, while there were also reports of dogs, cats,
koalas and possums being swooped and injured.
Evanston Gardens resident Bec Morrison said
there was a "feisty" magpie lurking near her family's
home on the corner of Murray Hillier Court and
"We have seen him chasing a lot of kids in our
area," she said.
"We tend to steer clear of him...it's only for a
couple of months of the year."
Mrs Bigham said it was most commonly the
protective male birds that swoop during the nesting
period, which lasts from about mid-August through
