Kadina CBD Redevelopment

Kadina CBD Redevelopment

Implementation Phase

Construction of stage 1 began on the 21st of November 2016.


Stage 1 consists of stormwater pipework across the town centre and the upgrade of Frances Tce. This prepared the town for stage 2 which was started to be implemented in 2017.


To remind our residents that Kadina will be open for business during the construction period, weekly prizes will be available for shoppers in the redevelopment zone. For details visit a participating store in the Kadina CBD

In the 2014/15 Annual Business Plan the Council committed to the redevelopment of the Kadina Town Centre.

The area has been identified as the commercial hub for the Yorke Peninsula, but currently has a number of issues including;

  • Ageing infrastructure
  • Disability access
  • Pedestrian movements and safety
  • Shade and general amenity
  • Mismatch of pavement surfaces
  • Traffic flow and management

A master plan was created following public consultation in 2012/13.

Work is currently starting on the design and construction phase of the redevelopment with the project to be rolled out over 3 budget cycles. The 1st year (14/15) will include undertaking a trial in a short section of Graves Street that will provide the community an opportunity to contribute to the final designs. The trial will include the addition of trees into the CBD and the alteration of the pedestrian access and central crossing points.

The master plan suggested that a section of Graves Street be upgraded to introduce a shared use mall within the heart of the town centre, between Hallett and Goyder Streets. The intent of the shared use mall is to once again establish Kadina as not only the main service town within the Copper Coast but to help create a new identity for the town drawing locals and tourists to visit and spend time. A shared use mall would cater for parking opportunities directly to the front of shops and encourage social interactions strengthening community pride in Kadina.

The intent of the trial was to seek further community comment on this change, before the final construction plans were prepared.
