Mayor Claire Boan

Welcome to the warmer weather and our Spring issue of PAE Today.

In this edition you will find the latest news and stories from our community and information about our programs and projects.

As we adjust to our “new normal” with limits on group gatherings, social distancing, and regular hand sanitising as part of our daily lives now, we are also looking at our overall economy, and leading our recovery to emerge as a stronger and more sustainable City post COVID-19.

Many of our residents and businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, so we are working to reinvigorate our City and support our residents, local businesses and community groups to get back on their feet. The next few months will be particularly difficult for some of our community, as Federal Government financial support is wound back. We have provided rates relief options including deferring rates payments, setting up individual payment plans, and waiving interest and late payment fines. This will continue for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, so please contact us to discuss your individual situation and the rate relief options that may be available to you.

To provide direct support and deliver a range of projects, we have developed a recovery framework and committed $2.4 million to be used where it is most needed over the next twelve months.

We have identified seven key priority areas and immediate projects and actions where we can focus our recovery efforts with real and pragmatic solutions. Then, as additional impacts of the pandemic become clearer and we engage further with you to better understand your needs and opportunities, we will add activities to our long-term recovery plan with further strategies and actions.

So please talk to your Councillors in your local Ward so we can be responsive and flexible as we gain a better insight into what you need to recover and be part of a reinvigorated, vibrant, resilient and liveable City with even stronger community and business connections. You can also have your say about a number of major projects and strategies that we are considering for the future.

We have setup our interactive consultation site haveyoursaypae.sa.gov.au where you can provide feedback and participate in the future of your neighbourhood.

So enjoy PAEtoday, and see what makes our region such a great place to live, work and play.

“The City of PAE acknowledges and pays respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we stand, the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and pays respect to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationships with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today”

Ward in focus – Port Adelaide

The Port Adelaide ward includes the suburbs of Gillman, Rosewater, Port Adelaide, Alberton, Queenstown, New Port, Glanville, Ethelton and Semaphore South.

Popular historic building, Glanville Hall, was built in 1856 and was the original residence of Captain John Hart; Premier and Treasurer.

Glanville was Hart’s mother’s maiden name. Hart’s Mill in Port Adelaide was also named after him. 

The Port Ward is rich in character, history and diversity. From the ongoing wisdom of Kaurna elders to the heritage precinct’s character buildings, museums and harbour, to our established suburbs and housing developments now being built. I live and work in the Heritage Precinct right in the heart of the Port. My daily walk along the loop path around the inner harbor takes me past the beautiful Workers Memorial at the Black Diamond Corner, where I often pause to reflect on the service of those ordinary men and women who did extraordinary work in our community in the past. As my walk continues to the beach at Semaphore South, I consider how fortunate I am to be living in such a wonderful community.

I have always loved Port cities. The work ethics, the shared values and the sense of community seem to be stronger in Ports. 15 Years ago, I moved here from Amsterdam, The Netherlands and I have never left. What goes for port cities around the world goes for Port Adelaide times two. The sense of community in the Port was my inspiration to become a Ward Councillor. Our family lives in Alberton in an old shop and we feel so lucky with our rich and caring neighbourhood. Taking care of our environment and each other are my priorities on Council.
