GAWLER'S first electric car-charging station
was officially rolled out last week, while
plans to introduce an entire fleet of electric
cars are in the pipeline.
ChargePoint, the world's largest electric vehicle-
charging network, offers charging stations across
Australia and New Zealand, and Gawler is the
newest addition to the evolving network.
The charging station, which is located at
Gawler Council's new administration centre,
is connected to the National ChargePoint
Network, allowing users access with their
ChargePoint accounts or a credit card.
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman said council
continues to focus on sustainability, paving the
way to lowered-emission motoring in Gawler.
"The creation of the first electric car-charging
station in Gawler is another step closer to
making electric cars a more accessible option
for South Australian drivers," she said.
"The more we support initiatives, like car-
charging stations, the closer we are to reducing
emissions completely and protecting the future
of our environment."
The charging station is available every day
and is capable of delivering 100 per cent
The station is located in the car park of the
Gawler Administration Centre and can be used
by all electric car owners.
As part of the Active Precinct Project, a second
charging station will be installed at Pioneer
Park in mid-2017.

PROPOSED liquor licence law reforms
are unlikely to have significant effects for
Gawler hotels, a local publican believes.
The State Government is considering
amendments to the Liquor Licensing Act
1997, as proposed by Supreme Court Justice
Tim Anderson, which are designed to cut red
tape and continue protecting the public.
The amendments include streamlining liquor
licensing categories and removing restrictions
relating to the sale of liquor on Sundays and
some public holidays, like Christmas Day.
They will also tighten laws relating to the
supply of alcohol to minors and create a
mandatory three hours break in trade for late
Tony Harnett, manager and licensee of
Murray Street's Kingsford Hotel, said that,
while the proposed laws would apply to
Gawler establishments, they would have
"almost no impact on us".
Mr Harnett was happy with the removal of
restrictions of liquor on Sundays and public
holidays, however his only issue was with the
high cost of penalty rates.
"It makes it very expensive for some hotels to
operate and to be viable on those days," said
"We hope these regulations don't make it
tougher for the industry."
Attorney-General and Consumer and
Business Service Minister John Rau said the
changes were the most significant reforms in
Mr Rau also released a draft set of
'Community Impact Assessment Guidelines',
which will need to be considered by the
liquor licensing authority, particularly with
relation to late night venues and bottle shops.
The guidelines include the harm that might
be caused due to excessive or inappropriate
consumption of liquor, the cultural,
recreational, employment or tourism impacts
and the social impact on the neighbourhood.
Mr Harnett was confident there would
be sufficient industry consultation on the
"I'm sure the government is talking with the
hotel industry through the Australian Hotels
Association (AHA)," he said.
"I just look at the big picture."
Business as usual
Kingsford manager and
licensee Tony Harnett is not too
concerned about the proposed
liquor licensing reforms.
