Christmas Catchup, Rotary Fair and more…

NOVEMBER NOTES – NORWOOD RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION

A few things to inform you all about:

  1. Rotary post-pageant fair
  2. Christmas social night
  3. Dunstan Planning Forum
  4. Coles re-development

ROTARY FAIR
Norwood Rotary will be holding a children’s/family fair at Richards Park after the Christmas Pageant on Saturday 23rd November (see below).
The NRA will be assisting them in setting up and running the event as well as having our own stall there promoting the Association. We’ll also be selling some delicious marmalades and jams and maybe a few other items to raise some money. We welcome any other contributions to our table – if you think you can donate something please contact us at our email address (norwoodresassoc@gmail.com).

CHRISTMAS SOCIAL NIGHT
Please come along to our end of year get together for a more relaxed, informal gathering. It will be at The Norwood Hotel (in the room to the left as you come in from Osmond Terrace) from 6:00pm Wednesday, 27th November. Like the previous happy hour, we’ll provide some finger food and you can buy drinks at the bar. It would be nice to see as many members as possible there. For you non/ex members perhaps you’d also like to come along and join/re-join on the night!

DUNSTAN PLANNING FORUM
This was held at the Norwood Concert Hall on the 4th November and it was great to see many of you there. With the Premier, Planning Minister and Planning Commission Chairman speaking and a spirited Q&A session it was a valuable component of the whole engagement process. The premier invited us all to submit extra questions to his office (via dunstan@parliament.sa.gov.au) and has promised to respond to all queries. This is your chance to educate yourself further and/or apply more pressure. There is a consultation period of five months for the recently released Design Code and this will be essentially the final opportunity to help shape the new development planning process. Rest assured that your Association will be actively involved and will be writing a submission during this time.

COLES REDEVELOPMENT
The development application has now been lodged. You may have seen the recent Advertiser article about this. A few of us have been invited to find out more detail from the Architects themselves and we’ll report back on this immediately afterwards. Being a category Two application only adjacent property owners can make submissions/objections to the development (by 21st November). See our Facebook page for some more detail…
