Tonsley Suburb Renaming

Consultation has concluded

We would like to hear your views about a proposal to create a new suburb called Tonsley by renaming the southern portion of Clovelly Park.

Marion Council is leading the community consultation for the proposal on behalf of the State Government’s urban renewal authority, Renewal SA.

The suburb of Tonsley would be created by adjusting the southern boundary of Clovelly Park. The new suburb would incorporate:

  • The 61-hectare Tonsley industry, education and residential precinct
  • Residential land south of the precinct and east of the Tonsley rail line
  • The Monroe Shock Absorbers site

We have recently completed community consultation from May to June 2016 and are collting community feedback.

What next?

The results of the consultation will be provided in a report to the Office of the Surveyor-General which will recommend to the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure whether or not to proceed with the name change.

Once a change has been formally gazetted the information needs to be disseminated to numerous organisations and people. A change may take several years to flow through to street directories and navigation systems. It is the responsibility of Government, Council and affected people to advise of the change. Each group’s responsibilities are listed below and are undertaken at cost to that group.

  • the area is looking very neglected, what improvements are planned for the southern Clovelly Park residential area

    joandgreg asked over 3 years ago

    Renewal SA (RSA) is responsible for managing the vacant land located at Ash Avenue and Chestnut Court at Clovelly Park in conjunction with the adjacent Tonsley site. RSA has recently engaged with local residents to hear their views on options for the interim management of the vacant land. 

    Community feedback has been compiled and summarized and a land management strategy will be developed in consultation with Marion Council.

    The longer term use for the land is yet to be determined, planning for which may take several years.  During this time, RSA will focus on ensuring the public safety, security and the general amenity of the area is preserved.
