MOVING OR RENOVATING?
TALKS are progressing between
Gawler Council and Peter Kittle
Motor Company, after plans for
a $30 million car dealership to
redevelop a prominent Kudla site
were originally knocked back.
Earlier last year, the company's
proposed development, located
on land previously occupied by
Backyard Inspirations on Main
North Road, was blocked by
council due to land compliance
The land is situated within the
Gawler Development Plan's rural
zone, which highlights that motor
vehicle showrooms are a non-
complying land use within that
Despite its opposition to the
proposed site, council said it
was willing to see the business
developed elsewhere within
the township because of the
"significant economic benefits and
The development -- which is
expected to provide 100 jobs for
displaced Holden workers in the
area -- includes the construction
of two new-car sale showrooms,
an outdoor used-car display
area, a vehicle service area, a
vehicle parts store, car-wash bays,
administrative areas and parking
While the matter remains
confidential, council confirmed
discussions with the motor
company were progressing.

Grain, glorious grain
GRAIN receivals have fetched
record-breaking figures across
the region from this 2016/17
bumper harvest season.
The Viterra Roseworthy site broke
its daily receival record in late
December with just over 17,000
tonnes, whilst sites in Viterra's
central region have received more
than 3.56 million tonnes, so far this
Viterra central region operations
manager Jack Tansley said all
sites, including Roseworthy, have
done well to keep things moving,
allowing the continual receival of
"It's been a great effort by the
Roseworthy team to keep growers
and carriers moving through the
site, especially given the large
harvest we're seeing this year and
the multiple segregations we're
offering to benefit growers," he
Records are expected to continue
as the harvest season begins to
This week alone, almost 530,000
tonnes of grain has been received
at Viterra's 22 sites.
Mr Tansley said preparation for
significant grain receivals prior
to the season has allowed these
records to occur.
"Significant pre-harvest planning
was undertaken to ensure we
were well-prepared to meet the
requirements of a large harvest;
this included working closely
with growers to monitor estimates
and ensure segregations met their
needs," he said.
"Roseworthy has 13 segregations
available for growers for wheat,
barley and canola...(and the site)
is operating 24 hours so trucks can
be loaded at night to move grain to
port and provide additional space
for grower deliveries."
Significant extra storage space
has also allowed greater receivals,
with the building of 900,000
tonnes of extra storage almost
complete across the state's
This was an increase on the
original 500,000 tonnes, which
was announced in August 2016.
Records on the docks have
also been seen, with grains
from Viterra's six port terminals
exceeding 860,000 tonnes
during December -- the company's
second-largest shipping record to
Viterra Roseworthyʼs operation supervisor Chris Roe is very proud of his site for their
outstanding grain records.

RECRUITMENT across South Australia remained
relatively flat across the board in 2016, a global
salaries and recruitment trends survey has found.
The Robert Walters Salary Survey, released this week,
predicted it will be an employers' market once again
in 2017 for South Australians.
Accounting, information technology, sales and
marketing, and other niche specialist business support
roles were tipped to achieve a modest wage growth
across the state over the next 12 months, however.
The survey's South Australia director, Michelle
Christie, said 56 per cent of professionals will be
looking for new roles in 2017.
"Of those, 28 per cent will change jobs for a better
salary," Ms Christie said.
"Career progression, flexible working conditions and
cultural fit will be the major non-financial reasons job
seekers will be looking to move jobs in 2017."
Flat outlook for SA job seekers
