Proposed Revocation of Community Land Classification

39 Smith Street, Walkerville

Community consultation commences 9am Tuesday 1 September 2020 and closes 5pm Friday 16 October 2020.

The Corporation of the Town of Walkerville is the Registered Proprietor of the whole of the land contained within Certificates of Title Volume 5728 Folio 637 (Smith 1), Volume 5838 Folio 95 (Smith 2), Volume 5796 Folio 887 (Depot).

.

Council is now undertaking community consultation regarding the proposed revocation of the Community Land Classification from the whole of the land contained within Smith 1 and Smith 2 and the portion of land contained within Depot on which the building straddles; as otherwise commonly known as 39 Smith Street, Walkerville.

The current lease over the site expires 31 December 2020 and Council has resolved not to renew or extend the existing tenancy agreement. This is due to the age and deterioration of the existing building, its limited life span and the increasing liability presented to Council should the building be re-leased without undertaking further unbudgeted and costly repairs.

Since 2013, both past and present Councils have made clear their intention to improve and redevelop all Council-owned land (including the aging buildings) between Smith and Fuller streets for the benefit of the community.

The aim of the revocation is to enable a redevelopment of the area to improve the land and/or facilities for the community’s benefit, thus increasing community access, use and engagement. Council has resolved to undertake an expressions of interest process over the whole of site, for possible development options, in line with the  ‘Community Zone’ envisaged under Planning and Development Zoning. This could include a recreation centre, educational establishment, child care centre,  clubroom, playground, health facility, place of worship, consulting rooms, theatre, primary or secondary school.

Pursuant to section 194 of the Local Government Act 1999, Council has compiled a Public Summary Report, which contains a description of the land, the reasons for the proposal, any Dedication, Reservation or Trust to which the land is subject, the intention of Council once the revocation has occurred and its effect on the community. This report can be downloaded below:

Walkerville Oval redevelopment

.

We are seeking your opinion on our new plans for Walkerville Oval.

Council has approved $3 million towards the redevelopment. However, the remaining costs are reliant on funding. In order to be eligible for this, Council must have a “shovel-ready” plan – which means that as soon as funds are received, development can begin immediately.
