Ultra Tune Advertising Sign Application

A development application has been lodged with the Council for a 12m x 4m LED advertising sign on the intersection of Stephen Terrace & Payneham Road above the Ultra Tune establishment. The application is currently out for public consultation and SPRA intends to make a submission to the Council Assessment Panel (CAP) that approval should not be given.

The proposal will look like this.

Traffic Issues

Traffic management in our suburbs is of significant concern to the St Peters Residents Association (SPRA). The issues of poor driver behaviour, excessive speed, rat running and parking are frequently raised to the committee.

Topics that have been raised recently include:

Richmond St Traffic

Residents have expressed concern about excessive speed and dangerous driving along Richmond Streeet, Hackney. Richmond Street is extremely narrow, especially on the western end towards Hackney Road. Additionally, the footpaths are quite narrow and are often further restricted by vegetation growing out from the properties, causing pedestrians to step onto the carriageway itself. These footpaths are well used by many of those who use the Adelaide Caravan Park and who walk to and from the City through Botanic Park.

A petition requesting changes to slow traffic can be signed at FIX. Speciality Coffee shop.

Spies, Secrets, Clandestine Operations and the St Peters Town Hall like something from a John le Carre novel!’
In late December 1962, on a scorcher of a day, an attractive woman waited outside the St Peters Town Hall, a double agent, she was part of an ASIO sting to uncover a ring of Soviet spies. But who was really watching who?


Explanation of Proposed Changes

The St Peters Residents Association Incorporated (SPRA) was formed in 1972.
At that time the Constitution was agreed to by the members and registered under the then current legislation for Incorporated Associations.
The 1972 Constitution has not been amended since that time, and is still the one that governs the activities of SPRA.
Since 1972 there have been changes to the Incorporated Associations Act and Regulations that require the Constitution to be updated to comply.
