Council's new reporting tool
A NEW online tool on Gawler Coun-
cil's website will enable local residents
and businesses to report and track
matters requiring maintenance.
From fallen tree branches, to potholes,
to vandalism and graffiti, the online service
will allow anyone to make a detailed report
and then track its progress.
Council chief executive Henry Inat said
elected members would be provided with
regular updates on all reported matters,
with council officers required to provide
actioning reports and job completion time
"This new system will ensure reported
issues are followed through to comple-
tion and residents and businesses who
report matters will receive closed-out
notifications once reports are actioned," he
"We are confident that the process will
improve response times and certainly im-
prove the amenity of our township."
Known as the Customer Request Man-
agement system, the tool can be utilised to
enable the logging, allocating, tracking and
reporting of all requests for service via an
The form is available on council's website
Development approved after delay
THE second stage of a major land de-
velopment in Gawler South has been
given the green light following a delay in
the approval process which frustrated its
Stage one of the Woodvale subdivision on
One Tree Hill Road was approved by Gawl-
er Council's development assessment panel
earlier this year, but it was stage two of the
project off Eckermann Avenue which caused
Woodvale's developers, Bentley Develop-
ment Group, found it difficult to understand
why stage one of the project was approved so
quickly, while the approval for the land man-
agement agreement on stage two, which was
"almost a carbon copy of stage one," was de-
layed several times.
Bentley Development Group principal
Chris Branford made a deputation at Gawler
Council's August meeting expressing his frus-
tration at the process.
"We believe this is entirely unreasonable to
delay this further," he said.
Gawler Council chief executive Henry
Inat said the process took extra time because
"all the land in that particular locality is
currently being used for rural living purpos-
"Council considers that although
some of the process associated with this
matter took longer than expected, it was
necessary for such thorough due diligence
to occur, given the impact this development
will have on the local amenity, environ-
ment and long-term finances of council," he
"This process has taken longer than ex-
pected, given not only the complexities of
such a large land division, but also
because this land division is the first urban
development in the recently rezoned
land south of the South Para River."
The application was finally approved by the
development assessment panel several weeks
ago and Mr Branford said he was pleased with
"It took some time to work through it with
council, but we are very pleased it has finally
been resolved," he said.
The approval of 98 additional allotments off
Eckermann Avenue brings the total number of
allotments available in the entire development
The new allotments are expected to be
available later this year and will feature larger
blocks fronting a tree-lined reserve.
THE $2 million greyhound
redevelopment at the Gawler
Oval complex is starting to
take shape, with framework
for the new building now in
The old greyhound grand-
stand has been completely de-
molished and the new facility is
beginning to rise from its ashes.
Noticeably larger than its pre-
decessor, the new structure will
provide state-of-the-art viewing
and facilities once it is com-
It will not only service the
Gawler Greyhound Club and
Greyhound SA but also sport-
ing and community clubs based
in the complex.
Greyhound Racing SA strate-
gic projects manager Scott Wu-
chatsch said the project should
be completed by the end of the
year, as targeted.
The project includes an up-
dated two-storey facility with a
viewing platform, exterior light-
ing, children's playground, 60
car parks and updated landscap-
