The Big Project
The Big Project is the Barossa region’s largest and most ambitious community infrastructure project. It provides a blueprint for our investment in recreation, culture and social infrastructure over a 35-year horizon.
Our vision is to deliver jobs and growth in our community and provide health and wellbeing outcomes that will genuinely transform the Barossa. The Big Project is embedded in our Long Term Financial Plan and is premised on attracting third-party funds to deliver infrastructure upgrades.
Over the past three years, Council has undertaken master planning and detailed design for each of the project sites. Information including masterplans, timelines and funding is available at Your Say Barossa and from the below links.
We have adopted the next phase of The Big Project priorities at a value of almost $39 million. This is underpinned by almost three years of research, assessment and engagement:
|Tanunda Recreation Park||$6.918M||Clubrooms, new playground entrance, junior oval, cricket net relocation|
|Southern Barossa Hub||$6.968M||4x turf pitches, oval surface/widening, lighting, club room/change room upgrades, relocation of rugby|
|Talunga Park & Old Talunga Park||$2.872M||Tennis and netball court redevelopment, equestrian stabling and linkages, caravan park upgrades|
|Murray Recreation Park||$145K||Alterations to toilet, pavilion, shower and laundry block|
|Stockwell Recreation Park||$1.64M||Change Room facilities, spectator viewing, BMX track|
|Angas Recreation Park||$3.353M||Junior oval, club room/change room and show hall upgrades relocate cricket nets|
We are also considering an aquatics strategy, with community consultation taking place in the second half of 2020. The $10.7 million Barossa Creative Industries Centre to activate arts, culture and tourism outcomes remains a top priority and we continue to apply for grant funding.
