Coast Park Update

In October 2020, we welcomed the State Government’s announcement to proceed with the remaining section of Coast Park in two stages between Third Avenue Semaphore Park and Terminus Street Grange.

We have continued to partner with the State Government to ensure the path is built.

This week, Council resolved the outstanding court action with the Coastal Ecology Protection Group (CEPG), with the CEPG agreeing to consent to judgment being entered in the Council’s favour.

Council on weighing up the cost of additional court proceedings (estimated at up to $450k) agreed to a final $77,500 payment to the CEPG given consent from them being entered in the Council’s favour.

We look forward to construction commencing in the northern section for Stage One - establishing a Linear Park between Third Avenue, Semaphore Park to the edge of Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve early in 2021. The State Government will then begin consultation on the design / alignment of the southern section for Stage Two to establish a Linear Park between the edge of Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve to Terminus Street, Grange. This consultation will be under the Linear Parks Act and is anticipated to begin in March 2021.

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 the negotiated settlement was in the best interests of the Charles Sturt community and is looking forward to the Coast Park being established.

“We have spent the last decade upgrading and delivering many kilometres of the Coast Park across our coastline and are excited for the remaining sections to be established in 2021,” Mayor Evans said.

“The settlement with CEPG enables the Linear Park to be built for all members of our Charles Sturt and wider Adelaide communities to use as a beautiful connector across our coast. Accessible for young kids, those with prams, wheelchair/mobility aid users, cyclists and everyone in between, this shared path will enable access and connection and will showcase the unique and special environment we call home.”

Enquiries regarding the Coast Park project should be directed to the State Government's Plan SA Service.
