Development talks continue

District Council of Mallala staff and developers Hickinbotham met in Two Wells on Wednesday October 2, for a meeting to discuss the next steps of the proposed new development.

DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said the meeting was a chance for staff to discuss the development proposal in terms of how it proceeds through the development application process.

“It was an opportunity for Hickinbotham to expand on their proposal and an opportunity for staff to comment on their proposal to ensure that when the development application is submitted the required information to assess the application is there,” Mr Mansueto said.

“Hickinbotham will give a presentation to councillors before the end of the year to keep them updated on the development.”

Hickinbotham Group Two Wells project manager, Ruth Vagnarelli, said the company was currently preparing and collating all the necessary information as part of the development approval process and agreed the meeting was beneficial.

“It was a good opportunity to talk about the township expansion and planning elements, such as open space, walkable neighbourhoods and good traffic flow,” Ms Vagnarelli said.

“We very much look forward to updating council with our progress in the coming months.”

It is hoped the first homes in the new development will be constructed within 18 months.
