THE PAST YEAR

This is the first SPRA Newsletter for some time, however the Association has continued to maintain a watching brief over Government and Council policy issues, and to consider matters that affect our Council area such as the planning changes being forced on to inner suburban councils, by the State Government.

During the year particular effort has been put into the St Peters Heroes Memorial project which will shortly be complete.

Newsletter - 15 Feb 2013

Welcome to the first email newsletter of the St Peters Residents' Association (SPRA). This newsletter discusses the Residential Development Planning Amendment, the Rally at 2pm on Monday 18th and the new website. SPRA believes that new development should complement the valued character of existing residential areas and be of a high standard. It is committed to helping residents maintain or improve the character and amenity of their residential areas.

Membership

For over 40 years SPRA has been a non-party political resident action group with members from Hackney, College Park, St Peters, Stepney, Maylands and Evandale suburbs in Adelaide, South Australia. Financial membership allows you to vote at our annual general meeting and join the committee.

We appreciate the support of our members. It ensures continued representation at Council level to protect the things that are special about our locality - low-density living and the generally good amenities.

About Us

The St. Peters Residents Association was formed in the 1970s when the former St. Peters Council was about to remove the R1 residential zoning from much of the Council area. This was a time when Don Dunstan wanted to build 10-storey flats at Hackney. Fortunately the residents of Hackney rose in revolt and the government retreated.
