New Housing Development

Renewal SA has partnered with Junction Housing in this instance to re-develop a large block of land which extends from Kegworth Road to Regent Street, Melrose Park. This land has been vacant for some years and was formerly had SA Housing Trust units constructed on it. 

Junction Housing is a not-for-profit provider of a wide range of community support services and affordable housing. 

In order to develop this land Junction Housing had lodged a Development Application with Council to divide the land into 22 Allotments, 21 Allotments for "stand alone" houses and one Allotment for a single 3 storey apartment building which will contain 15 apartments. Six of the houses will be sold on the open market and the balance on an affordable rental basis. 

The Plan of Division created a reserve and roadway and at last Council Meeting this was vested in Council as a public asset, owned and maintained by Council. 

Council is not the relative planning authority in this development as the land is owned by Renewal SA. 

Junction Housing will take over the management of the recently constructed two storey residential building which adjoins the subject land in Regent Street. 

Mitcham Library Development

Many hours have been involved with Planning the extension of the Mitcham Library and it is "all go" at the moment as the SA Government Grant will expire if considerable work has not commenced by the end of 2017 year. Plans have been drawn, varied a few times as will all developments of this nature. I am sure the end product will be pleasing for all residents of Mitcham Council. 

2017/18 Budget 

Considerable staff work has commenced on the 2017/18 Budget and the first Elected Member re-consideration is Budget priorities will be discussed at the Council Meeting on Tuesday 24 October to assist the fine tuning of the very important work on Council's calendar. The Long Term Financial Plan will be updated to reflect the first re-consideration of the Budget priorities for the same period. 

This is my last article to the Mitcham Community News before Christmes and New Year. There are many celebrations coming up, so, I would like to wish you and your families all a safe and restful break over the Christmas New Year period. If you are going away for holidays, please again, keep yourself and your families safe and have a wonderful time. 

I always appreciate the opportunity to meet, talk with, learn and support residents on local issues. My contact number is 82771884 or email at Council if you wish.
