$12 billion housing development downsized
GAWLER, Wednesday, February 12, 2014
THOUSANDS of jobs and
billions of dollars of invest-
ment are at risk following a
State Government decision to
slash a 25,000 home expansion
at Roseworthy to a fraction of
the size, developers warn.
In a long-awaited announce-
ment on Monday, State Plan-
ning Minister John Rau backed a
study into a potential expansion
of Roseworthy, which would see
only 2000 new homes built in
Under the new plan, 554 hect-
ares, south of the existing town-
ship, would be rezoned for the
development of residential and
The decision -- which if pro-
gressed into full-scale develop-
ment, would mean the township
could house another 6000 new
residents instead of the 100,000
originally anticipated -- was a blow
to developers and its supporters.
Michael Noonan, from develop-
ment consortium Gawler Project,
said the government had missed
"the point of Roseworthy Garden
"I am puzzled by the govern-
ment's 'cut down' version of Rose-
worthy's expansion, which risks
jobs and billions of dollars of in-
vestment -- without infrastructure
investment, there will be no jobs,"

Member for Light Tony Piccolo has defended the State Government's decision to undertake a study into downsized development of Roseworthy, which would see 2000 new homes built in
the region instead of 25,000.

THE bravery of three local
boys helped save 12 dogs
from a devastating fire that
killed five others at a private
kennel facility in Two Wells

The fire claimed the lives of

However, he has given no indication
