Consultation has concluded

A significant upgrade of Hahndorf’s historic Main Street was identified as a key priority in 2018 when Council endorsed the Hahndorf Township Plan after extensive community consultation. The need for the upgrade is driven by a number of factors:

  • Ageing, and in places, failing infrastructure including seating, footpaths, kerb and landscaping; and
  • Ever-increasing tourism activity, creating pressure for continued investment to ensure the public realm keeps pace with private investment occurring in the street.

Funding the project

Council requires external funding of at least 50% in order to start work on the Hahndorf Main Street Revitalisation Project. The preliminary cost estimate for the project is in the order of $6m. As the project progresses through a detailed planning process, a further project cost estimate will be prepared enabling the project budget to be finalised. Council has submitted a number of funding applications to the State and Federal Governments, however, at this stage the project remains unfunded. Council will continue to pursue funding opportunities through the State and Federal Governments as well as through private investment to enable construction of the project.
