Stormwater plans in motion
LIGHT Regional Council has officially
commissioned stormwater manage-
ment plans for Freeling, Greenock and
The plans, which will be conducted in
partnership with the Stormwater Manage-
ment Authority and Adelaide & Mount
Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Manage-
ment Board, are part of Light's council-wide
stormwater-management planning strategy.
Light Council Mayor Bill O'Brien said
the detailed plans would help council inves-
tigate future infrastructure upgrades in the
"Wasleys already has an approved plan
and council is continuing to work with the
Town of Gawler and the Barossa Council
to develop an overall plan for Gawler which
includes the Light Regional Council areas
of Hewett and the Gawler Belt," he said.
The council has commenced the progres-
sion of a Development Plan Amendment
for the township expansion of Roseworthy,
which will consider stormwater drainage is-
sues within the existing and proposed town-
Light Council projects and engineering
manager Nathan Cunningham said coun-
cil was seeking interested locals to form
focus groups from each of the three town-
"The focus groups are intended to rep-
resent a cross-section of the general public
involving people who have experienced his-
torical flooding, may be living in a flood-
prone area, have an interest in stormwater
and natural resource management and
strategic planning of infrastructure," he
The focus groups will assist the project
team in identifying the council's and com-
munity's appetite for managing flood risk
and improving stormwater and natural re-
source management service levels.
This will lead to the allocation of funding
for prioritising drainage upgrades, water-
sensitive urban design, water quality im-
provements, watercourse rehabilitation and
Focus group applications close at 5pm,
August 22 and details can be sent to council

Annie just days away
TRINITY College students have
been busy preparing for this
year's school musical, Annie,
with opening night just one
With a cast of over 50 students
and a junior ensemble of 10, the
musical tells the story of little orphan
Annie who embarks on a mission to
find her biological parents.
A fifth performance has been
added due to popular ticket sales
and is now scheduled for the
opening night on Wednesday,
August 6, at the Hewiston Theatre.
Musical producer and teacher at
Trinity College Jayan Mace said
Annie was chosen as the musical
this year because it coincides with
Trinity's 30th year anniversary and
the school wanted to showcase as
much of the school's talent to the
community as possible.
"Traditionally, we have a senior
musical, which is from year nine to
year 12," Ms Mace said.
"Doing Annie meant we could
bring the age down a little bit so
we could have our junior schools
The planning process began in
October last year and auditions were
held in early November.
The musical generated a lot of
interest from students, especially
from the junior school where 40
"The numbers have increased
lately from what we've done in the
past," Ms Mace said.
"At our original information
session we had 70 people."
The musical will feature a
specially formed school band, made
up of students and staff, and a
number of students and old scholars
are also involved in the crew.
Rehearsals are coming together
nicely and Ms Mace said the
students are well prepared and will
be entertaining to watch.
"The kids are extremely talented
and we do have a very intense
rehearsal schedule, so they've been
rehearsing for a couple of hours,
twice a week in the last term."
