About the proposal

We were approached by Catholic Church Endowment Society Inc (CCESI) who are the registered owners of the land located at 66-80 Princes Rd, Greenacres (also known as St Martin’s Catholic Primary School) with a proposal to further develop the school’s facilities at the site and seeking endorsement of entering into a Road Closure Process for two small portions of ‘Road’ identified as Princes Road, Greenacres.

A report titled ‘Proposed Closure of a Portion of Road – Princes Road, Greenacres’ was presented to Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 13 February 2024 which outlined the school’s proposal.

Council resolved to enter into a Road Closure Process and to commence community engagement on the Road Closure and potential disposal. Should the proposal be endorsed by the community, Council and the Surveyor General, the two portions of Road would be amalgamated into the adjoining portions of land owned by CCESI.

Preliminary Plan

The two portions of land that CCESI are requesting to purchase are identified as Princes Road, Greenacres and measure a total of approximately 194 square metres.

Please follow the link to the Preliminary Plan below, on which the portions of road proposed for closure is identified as ‘A’ and ‘B’.

The Preliminary Plan and statement of persons affected are available for public inspection at the City of PAE’s Civic Centre located at 163 St Vincent Street Port Adelaide SA 5015 between the hours of 8.30am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

The Preliminary Plan can also be viewed on the SA Government Website.
