The City of Playford is progressing plans to reshape the Elizabeth CBD into a thriving retail, business and entertainment precinct.
With contemporary expectations that services, employment and lifestyle experiences are available close to where you live, revitalising the Elizabeth CBD responds to the needs of our growing community. Residential growth in Playford is expected to reach 132,000 people by 2036, with further growth in areas around the city such a Gawler, Light and the Barossa.
Importantly, developing a vibrant CBD fulfils a key community aspiration from the Playford Community Vision 2043, with the community expressing their desire for a vibrant and cosmopolitan city centre, with services and offerings all in the one place.
The core CBD site is located between Playford Boulevard and Main North Road at Elizabeth.
Infrastructure investment commenced in the CBD in 2017, including the redevelopment of Prince George Plaza, construction of a multi-deck carpark and more recently, the opening of the Grenville Hub and upgrades to Fremont Park.
Since mid-2021, Council has been working to expand on this progress, working with industry to identify potential partners to privately develop specific sites within the CBD. Stringent guidelines are in place to ensure the right mix of quality urban design is delivered, which may include retail, business, professional and entertainment offerings.
We are committed to engaging with our community throughout this important project and will keep you informed along each step of the process.
