The Gawler Town Centre Design Framework was adopted by Council in November 2016 with the objective of building upon previous strategic level investigations. The precincts were defined as Gawler North, Gawler Central and Gawler South based upon varying character, both in terms of its principal land uses, built form and potential future.

This project intends to realise the vision of the Gawler Central Urban Precinct with a focus on Walker Place and the connectivity to Goose Island by creating a well design and landscaped public realm for the centre of Gawler.

The detailed design is nearing completion with major construction targeted for commencement in early 2020.
