Home' The Bunyip : October 15th 2014 Contents IMAGINE a new South Australian central
business district with a vibrant retail,
commercial and residential sector
accompanied by a state-of-the-art
regional sports precinct and an innovative
health precinct -- this is the 2043
community vision for Adelaide's north.
With the City of Playford's population
expected to double by 2050, council
is currently reinventing the region into
Adelaide's northern CBD, which will benefit
residents within the council district, as well
as those in Gawler and surrounding districts.
Over the next five years Playford Council
is committed to delivering a series of
lighthouse projects, including Playford
Central, Playford Sports Precinct and
Playford Health Precinct, in line with the 30
Year Plan for progressing the north.
According to Mayor Glenn Docherty,
the City of Playford has its sights
set on becoming South Australia's
second CBD, also known as Playford
Central, by providing residents
and businesses with the services
and amenities of a 21st century
"Easily accessed by public transport,
vehicles, bikes and on foot, this
high-density development is set to
become a major retail, commercial
and entertainment centre with multi-
storey, mixed-use buildings hosting
apartment living, hotel facilities and
business accommodation," Mr
"Playford Central, will transform
Elizabeth into a vibrant and
sustainable... district linked by
attractive, green streetscapes."
As one of South Australia's fastest-
growing regions, the City of Playford
already boasts the foundations to
become a CBD, including the Lyell
McEwin Hospital, the local service
area police centre and the northern region's
Magistrates Court, the Elizabeth Shopping
Centre and TAFE.
"These will combine to create Adelaide's
northern CBD and provide the level of
economic activity needed to support and
attract investment into the City of Playford,"
Mr Docherty said.
Requiring 50 hectares and a planned $55
million is the Playford Sports Precinct, which
is expected to provide regional, state and
national level sports facilities to encourage
higher levels of participation in local sports.
Linking the Playford Alive Oval, the
Aquadome and the Ridley and Spruance
reserves by a shared linear path, the
Playford Sports Precinct will feature a
modern tennis complex and an under-cover
lawn bowls complex.
With construction of the development's first
stage set to begin in August next year,
Playford Council is looking forward to
working with both grass roots and elite
