DISTRICT Council of Mallala will use a $30,000 State Government grant to develop master plans of major recreation and open space areas in the townships of Two Wells, Mallala and Dublin.
The funding is part of the 2014/15 Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program (CRSFP).
DCM was part of the development of the Barossa, Light and Lower North Region Open Space, Recreation and Public Realm Strategy (2013), which was done in partnership with the State Government and Regional Development Australia – Barossa.
The strategy aligns with the vision, targets, relevant strategies and policies of the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide by contributing to the critical land use arrangement and effective planning and growth outcomes.
Council will seek the services of a consultant to prepare the management and master plans for these precincts.
The area currently has a population of more than 3,100 with large increases expected when meeting the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide.
Total cost of the project is estimated at $60,000.
The International Gun Club State Shooting Park, at Buckland Park, also picked up a CRSFP grant of $7,750 to replace two skeet clay target launchers which are more than 15 years old.
The club has recently been allocated the annual State Skeet Titles, and in 2014 the International Gun Club will host two Australia Cup events at the State Shooting Park.
With a total project cost of $15,500 the Club will contribute $7750 in cash and volunteer labour.
