Primary school work starts
ACTIVITY has started on
the former site of the Evan-
ston Primary School, with
civil works preparing for the
installation of a 76-allotment
The primary school closed its
doors in 2013, with the State
Government then selling the
land to a development firm,
Metro Properties P/L.
The developer sought approval
from council for a land division
development, which was grant-
ed by council's Development
Assessment Panel in May this year.
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman
said the land division application
would create 76 new homes in
"These allotments front Para
Road, as well as new internal
public roads that are being con-
structed as part of this develop-
ment," she said.
"Three reserves of varying sizes
are also proposed...one of these re-
serves will incorporate a 'nature play
area' playground type of space.
"Another of the reserves also
links the development to a future
'Greenway' bicycle track proposed
by the State Government along the
Adelaide-Gawler rail corridor."
Civil works to prepare the site
for development have commenced,
however it is not expected that
houses will be constructed on the
land until early to mid-2015.
It is understood phone lines
were cut last week during site
works, however the developers
did not respond to The Bunyip to
discuss the situation, or the new
gets 'em talking
