Draft Gawler Activation Strategy

The draft Gawler Activation Strategy has been developed to further encourage a sense of place and excitement through increased community interaction, celebration and gathering within Gawler.
Consultation Dates:
Opened 25 May 2018 — Closed 15 Jun 2018


With the vision of: “A vibrant and active, event filled council through the activation of designated spaces the Gawler Activation Strategy will shape the way Council runs or supports some events within the community.

Through this strategy Council will focus on activating designated spaces through events and activity which celebrate Gawler’s culture and diversity while delivering the community benefits of broad community participation, inclusion and collaboration.

Council will provide, partner, promote and encourage events and activity that builds community capacity, improve community cohesion and enhance the vibrancy of the town.

This strategy will not only guide future decision making regarding place-making and activation opportunities. It will also provide the basis for a ‘continuous improvement process’ to be applied to Council’s planning, management, promotion and evaluation of activities and events in Gawler.  The expectation is that the continuous improvement process will provide a consistent and more streamlined approach to service provision to community events whilst also improving the ‘Community Event Permit’ application process.

A copy of the strategy is available at the Gawler Administration Centre (43 High St, Gawler East) or can be downloaded below.
