Welcome to our Autumn 2021 edition of PAE Today.
In this edition you will find the latest news and stories from our community and information about our services, programs and projects.
The biggest news for all property owners is that this month, as part of the State Government’s new Planning and Design Code, every property across South Australia will be rezoned to a new code. We have made many submissions to the government over the past few years to ensure that any new planning rules continue to reflect local issues and conditions to provide the best possible outcomes for our community.
We also continue to focus on our economic recovery, and this year we are working with and supporting our local businesses to recover, reopen and reinvigorate themselves.
So, I urge you to also support our local PAE businesses, by thinking and buying PAE first. From your weekly shopping, to eating out, buying special treats, visiting our many attractions, or whenever you are out and about, you can play your part in the recovery for our local business community, which benefits everyone.
We also want to help and support you in our community, and to hear from you about any ideas, activities or projects you have to participate in the future of your neighbourhood and enable us to best direct our recovery efforts for you. You can talk to our PAE staff or your Councillors in your local Ward. We want to continue to gain better insights into what you need to recover from COVID and be part of an active, reinvigorated, vibrant, resilient and liveable City with even stronger community and business connections.
With some warm weather still ahead of us, it’s a good time to gather with your neighbours. We celebrate Neighbour Day on the last Sunday in March, so it’s an ideal opportunity for you to make meaningful connections that will last beyond that day. I encourage you to check in on your neighbours, as we all make up the wonderful community that is PAE, and we can all continue to make it such a great place to live, work and play.
We are part way through the 2021 Fringe, and we have around 60 events and activities across PAE that I urge you to look out for. Our flagship Fringe event, Fringe @5085 is on at Stockade Park over the March long weekend. This two-day extravaganza of magical mayhem and music features lots of family fun including fairies, giants and other mystical creatures and the colourful Wow on Wheels Fringe caravan…and I hope to see you there.
We are also rethinking how we do events in these times, and we recently held a free drive-in movie night with over 500 cars turning up for a fun evening. If you have any ideas about what new and unique entertainment, activities and happenings you want to see and experience in PAE, please let us know.
I hope to see you soon out and about in the amazing community that is PAE.
