Cheap power & water in Unley

  I was staggered to read in The Advertiser online that an Unley Shopping centre is taking Unley Council to the Supreme Court to recoup over $1m for illegal use of power and water over the past decade(s). The power and water was used in the adjoining memorial garden. It’s staggering that this went on for so long, undetected by both parties. Hopefully this will be amicably settled with the slate wiped clean and it won’t be a $1m+ hit to our rates in 2021. Given that the shopping centre is a ratepayer, that probably won’t be the outcome.

Must retain Unley Gatehouse

  I’m annoyed that the SA Government won’t try to relocate the heritage gatehouse (built in 1890) on the corner of Cross Road and Fullarton Road, as part of the road widening project. It should not be demolished. That should not be the only solution. Engineers say that it can be moved. So, why not try. Yes, it will cost a bit, but it is worthwhile. Some Liberal MPs support the relocation. I call upon David Pisoni, Liberal MP for Unley to support the local demand that this historic gatehouse be retained or moved. David should put his ministerial obligations aside and support the local push to relocate the gatehouse.
