Proposed renaming of a small section of the Freeling Railway Yard Reserve as the 'ANZAC Memorial Garden'
Light Regional Council advises pursuant to Section 219 of the Local Government Act 1999, that it proposes to rename a small section of the Freeling Railway Yard Reserve as the 'ANZAC Memorial Garden'. The following Council-owned properties are affected:
Reserve – Part Allotment 32 in Deposited Plan 32894, Certificate of Title Volume 5103, Folio 418, Hundred of Light, and
Reserve – Part Allotment 33 in Deposited Plan 39837, Certificate of Title Volume 5199, Folio 515, Hundred of Light.
The renaming of the affected area is proposed to recognise a small garden which will be established within the Freeling Railway Yard Reserve to recognise local service in the ANZAC armed forces since World War One. It is intended to have this new commemorative area completed before the ANZAC Centenary in 2015.
Background information including the Concept Plan for the new garden is available for viewing at the Principal Office of Council at 93 Main Street, Kapunda, or the Branch Office of Council at 12 Hanson Street, Freeling. The plan & report may also be accessed on Council's website: www.light.sa.gov.au
Light Regional Council is planning a Shared Use Path – Have your say!
What's this about?
Council is preparing to construct a shared walking and cycling path along the Kapunda rail corridor and is seeking community feedback to assist with finalising the design for this exciting initiative.
What's being proposed?
After receiving a submission from the community highlighting the opportunity for a safe and convenient 'off-street' connection between the southern area of Kapunda and key educational and community facilities within the town, Council has pursued an opportunity to utilise a part of the dormant railway corridor which runs through Kapunda to provide a shared walking and cycling track.
More recently, Council has been fortunate to receive funding support from the State Government to undertake this exciting project and is now seeking community input to finalise the design of the shared use path.
What are the details?
The project involves the construction of a 2.4 metre wide sealed shared use path running within part of the dormant railway corridor from the car parking area at Coghill Street (Davidson Reserve) to High Street, a distance of some 780 metres.
As the path will cross two (2) roads, appropriate safety devices will be installed to provide protection to users. Existing walking links to, and across, the corridor will be maintained and enhanced.
How do I find out more?
Further important information, including the proposed Concept Plan is available at Council's website www.light.sa.gov.au
