THE Wallaroo town centre is a step closer to
being redeveloped with the District Council
of the Copper Coast agreeing to accept an
offer from a developer consortium, including
Drakes and Daycorp, to purchase land on
Council held a special meeting on
Wednesday, December 19, at which Daycorp
offered an as-yet undisclosed sum to purchase
DCCC agreed on the price, giving the
Daycorp consortium the right to buy the land
where it plans to develop a shopping complex
anchored by a new Drakes supermarket.
However, council will not sign off on a sale
until the consortium has the necessary devel-
"We have reached an agreement where, if
they meet certain requirements, they can pur-
chase it ... when they have the appropriate
approvals," CEO Peter Harder said.
"If they do all the necessary work, the
approval will be quite simple.
"Their layout is almost finalised and they
are providing more car parking than is need-
ed because they see that as important to their
customers, which is great."
Mr Harder said the designs, which will
involve the supermarket as well as up to seven
specialty shops with room for more in the
future, fit with what the public asked for when
consulted in 2007.
Council will continue Wildman Street
straight through John Terrace to Owen
Terrace, build a roundabout to the west of the
supermarket, and do up Owen Terrace,
including its footpath on the side currently
occupied by businesses.
Mayor Paul Thomas said it is hoped by the
end of 2013 there will be a building on Owen
Terrace, although it likely won't be ready to
"Five years ago we did a study which iden-
tified the community wanted a shopping
precinct in the heart of the town and this will
deliver that," Mr Thomas said.
"It will also provide a considerable amount
of open space which will become usable for
things like the Christmas street party."
A Crystal Ball would be handy.

AFTER a warm start to
2013, temperatures are
set to soar on Yorke
Peninsula with today
(Wednesday) the start of
a hot spell which will
linger well into next
ologist Ben Domensino
said temperatures are
expected to reach more
than 40 degrees Celsius in
parts of Yorke Peninsula
on a number of days.
"A high pressure sys-
tem is moving east and in
the wake of that we have
hot, dry northerly winds
developing over Yorke
"This is drawing a very
hot air mass which will
begin a prolonged hot
spell for much of the state.
"Northern and inland
towns such as Kadina and
Maitland will be most
affected, with the heat
building up over the next
few days and peaking on
"Places near the coast
will have a better chance
of a sea breeze but they
will still be much warmer
The mercury is set to
rise to 40 degrees tomor-
row in the north, with
southern areas tipped to
reach the mid-30s.
"The heat will continue
to build on Friday, with
Kadina to see tempera-
tures in the mid-40s and
Price and Maitland also
expected to reach above
40 degrees," Mr
"A weak southerly
change will move
through the peninsula on
Friday afternoon which
should bring some relief,
with Saturday expected to
be the coolest day in the
low to mid-30s."
However, the cooler
change won't last long
increasing again on
"The hot weather will
remain until at least the
middle of next week with
temperatures back into
the 40s on Monday and
Tuesday before any sig-
nificant relief is on the
way," Mr Domensino
These hot, dry condi-
tions will also result in
increased fire danger over
the next week to 10 days,
so residents are reminded
to be vigilant and have
their Bushfire Survival
Temperatures set to soar
