Norman Etherington AM

President
National Trust of South Australia

Heritage is sometimes said to be a polarising issue. That proposition was put to the test in a wide-ranging public consultation conducted in 2016 by South Australia’s Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.

The Community Consultation process is over and the Minister for Planning, John Rau has deferred consideration of legislative changes to Heritage legislation until after the State elections in March 2018.

So now what? Is local heritage still under siege? Norman, an Emeritus Professor of History and former Alderman of the City of Adelaide, has a rare insight into the State’s heritage issues.

Do come and hear Norman’s views. A presentation not to be missed! Following the presentation and discussion a light supper will be provided.

When: Tuesday 21 November 2017

Where: Unley Community Centre, 18 Arthur St Unley

Time: 7:30pm

Contact: Ros Islip – 0438723001 Warren Jones – 0419852622

A presentation by Screen Shot 2016-04-30 at 4.02.52 PM.png

Charles Mountain Senior Manager of Road Safety

Royal Automobile Association of SA

The State Government initiative – Renewing Our Inner Metro Growth Project – promotes a mix of new homes, shops and offices in higher density development along our main roads apparently without addressing the traffic issues.

  • So what are the challenges in managing the competing demands for the use of the arterial roads through our City?
  • What are the more likely options and their pros and cons?
  • Can we achieve a more pedestrian friendly City?

Here is an opportunity to hear some expert independent views on a matter affecting all who live and pass through the City of Unley every day!

All welcome.

Following the presentation and discussion a light supper will be provided concluding with a General Meeting for FOCUS.

FOCUS Membership Subscriptions for the 2016/2017 year may be paid at the meeting.

When: Tuesday 17 May 2016
