The City of Charles Sturt has welcomed the State Government’s announcement to proceed with the Coast Park. Detailed design followed by construction for Stage One of the Linear Park between Third Avenue, Semaphore Park and Terminus Street, Grange was given the go ahead by Minister Chapman.
We have delivered kilometres of the Coast Park across our coastline, and look forward to the State Government progressing the last remaining section.
Minister for Planning and Local Government Vickie Chapman today announced that the remaining area to be designed and constructed will adopt a two-stage approach for this last remaining section:
- Stage One (‘North’) – The establishment of a Linear Park between Third Avenue, Semaphore Park to the edge of Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve
- Stage Two (‘South’) – The establishment of a Linear Park between the edge of Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve to Terminus Street, Grange, which will be released separately for consultation at a later date.
Public support for the Coast Park, which now stretches from Outer Harbour right through to Sellicks Beach, has been strong and consistent for a shared use path that provides access to the beach for all residents and visitors to South Australia’s coast.
Public consultation led by the State Government was conducted earlier in 2020 with 87.5% of feedback supporting the establishment of the remaining section.
Mayor Angela Evans said she was looking forward to work progressing from Semaphore to Grange.
“We have delivered many kilometres of the Coast Park across our coastline and we look forward to working with the State Government to see these final sections of the Linear Park completed,” she said.
“We know thousands of members of our community are looking forward to being able to use this full accessible pathway, including those with prams, wheelchair users, cyclists, all sharing the path together.”
