Walker Place Redevelopment 2020
|Type of thing||Government
|Place made||Walker Place
From Town of Gawler:
The Gawler Town Centre Design Framework was adopted by Council in November 2016 with the objective of building upon previous strategic level investigations. The precincts were defined as Gawler North, Gawler Central and Gawler South based upon varying character, both in terms of its principal land uses, built form and potential future.
This project intends to realise the vision of the Gawler Central Urban Precinct by providing a unique public realm for visitors and the community, connecting the Mainstreet, shopping areas and open spaces with the potential to become the heart of the town, not simply a retail strip, but a centre point for placemaking and community activities.
The total project value is $2.31M and is funded in collaboration with the State and Federal Governments through the ‘Places for People’ Program (approx. $1M), the ‘Roads to Recovery’ Program ($206K) and a Council commitment of $1.1M.
