The City of Playford is undergoing a massive transformation

City of Playford is undergoing a massive transformation – from Holden heartland to South Australia’s Next Great City.

A recent strategic report released by the City of Playford is packed full of exciting news for the City of Playford.  

It says, as one of Australia’s fastest growing Councils, the council is open to ideas to create their own opportunities, both in the short term to address the closure of General Motors Holden and in the longer term as the local industrial base transitions.

The Mayor and Councillors have an aggressive plan to transform Elizabeth CBD with $400 million invested in the past two years alone.  

High-tech health and sports precincts are being developed along with business and creative hubs.  The CBD in Elizabeth is being remodelled into an entertainment and cultural showpiece complete with the Playford Ice Arena, new $50M hotel, restaurants, cafes, bars, community services, carpark and open green spaces.

Population forecasts indicate a growth rate of nearly 40% from 94,000 in 2018 to more than 130,000 residents by 2039.
