Sale of Crown land - Public Notice

The Minister for Climate, Environment and Water has granted approval for the direct sale of a portion of Crown land described as Allotment 101 in DP 93296 45 Tangara Drive, American River SA 5221. The land is dedicated to the Kangaroo Island Council. The Council leases a portion of the land for commercial shellfish aquaculture operations. The Department for Environment and Water has commenced a process, in accordance with provisions of the Crown Land Management Act 2009, to facilitate the sale to the current long-term lessee.

Security of freehold tenure will enable the business to continue to operate and further invest into research and development, tours and the local economy. There is no intended change of land use for this land parcel.

To enable the sale, a portion of the land (which is less than the current leased area on which the business operates) will be excised from the Crown land parcel.

The sale will not restrict access to the foreshore, walking trail or area used by the general public. The remainder of the land parcel, including all foreshore land, will continue to be dedicated under the care, control and management of Kangaroo Island Council for harbour purposes with no change to the community’s existing use and enjoyment of the foreshore area.

Proposal to alter the boundary of the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta

  • Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta is currently the subject of a significant investment program, including construct of the Sam Willoughby BMX Facility adjacent to Majors Road. For safety reasons, access to the site is required to be via a slip lane. There is insufficient space within the existing road reserve to create the necessary slip lane and it is proposed to remove a small portion of land from the existing national park to make allowance for the slip lane. It is considered to be a minor amendment to the park to allow for the creation of road and seen to be an important safety aspect for future use of park facilities.
