Exciting changes have now commenced in the centre of Normanville with the creation of a temporary green space on the site previously known as the Normanville Township Petrol Station at 81-83 Andrew Avenue, Normanville. The site was purchased by Council in January 2019.
The Normanville Township Petrol Station site ceased selling fuel in December 2019 and operated as ‘Fleurieu Fishing and Outdoors’ until the doors were closed at the site at end of February 2020.
Council has been working with surrounding businesses on the timetable to create the temporary green space. Now that all buildings have been removed you may be able to visualise the space better. The final piece of the infrastructure removal, the underground tanks, are due to be extracted the week commencing 25 May 2020.
The Council Team will then repurpose the site into a useable temporary green field site filled with irrigated turf. A concept photo of the end result is displayed below.
The temporary green field site is a short-term solution to ensure that the now unoccupied site can be immediately used and not become a vacant piece of land in the Normanville town centre. Council will continue to engage with the community through the 2030 Strategic Planning Process and future targeted consultation to determine a long-term future for the site.
The turf will be installed in Spring 2020 and, once settled in position and ready for foot traffic the temporary fencing will then be taken down. Once the fencing is removed the community will be encouraged to make use of the area which could include events such as community markets.
