IN March, Gawler council voted, for the second time, to adopt the Eckerman Avenue alignment for the controversial
Gawler East link road, after its original decision was backed by an independent review. The independent review -- which
was triggered by an official complaint made by Eckerman Avenue residents, whose land would have had to be acquired to
build the bypass -- found there were no pitfalls in council's original decision-making process. However, in December, Gawler
Council back-flipped on the decision, and adopted the link road alignment proposed by the Department of Planning,
Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), after costings undertaken by DPTI revealed council's alignment would blow out the
$55 million in State Government funds that were budgeted for it.

THISCouncils rally against rates proposal
GAWLER Council has
added its voice to a chorus
of local governments
opposing a State Liberal
Party election promise to
cap annual council rate
Opposition Leader Steven
Marshall has routinely
vowed to introduce the cap
if the Liberals are elected in
next year's state election.
The issue resurfaced last
month, when Member for
Schubert Stephan Knoll
tried to include rate capping
as part of a bill, currently
before parliament, to reform
council boundary adjustment
"In order to tackle some of
the overly high rate increases
that place a huge burden on
struggling families, we are
committed to implementing
a policy of capping council
rates," Mr Knoll told
"Such systems exist in Victoria
and New South Wales."
This week, the Local
of South Australia revealed
it was preparing to launch
the biggest campaign in its
history "to fight for South
against cuts to council
facilities and services".
Several South Australian
mayors, including City of
Adelaide Lord Mayor Martin
Haese, showed support for

In August, the Federal Government committed the remaining $45.6 million, with work commencing in November.
