WILLASTON could become the latest suburb subject to a bitter boundary dispute, if Light Regional Council makes good on a threat to its neighbours.
GAWLER Council will submit its initial application to expand its boundaries later this month, after elected members voted in favour of proceeding with the proposal last week.
LIGHT Regional Council (LRC) hopes a review into Roseworthy potentially becoming a centre for the region will deter Gawler Council from progressing with its boundary reform plan.
ADELAIDE Plains Council (APC) has distanced itself from the boundary expansion plans of Gawler and Barossa Councils, while Light Regional Council (LRC) mayor Bill O’Brien has declared his council would be “unsustainable” if the reforms were successful.
A LIGHT Regional councillor will fight to keep the expanding Roseworthy township within his council’s borders, following suggestions Gawler Council could attempt to take control of it.
GAWLER Council chief executive Henry Inat has declared his council’s boundary reform agenda “is not about revenue”.
