Magill Village Project

Magill Village logo

The Magill Village Partnership is a collaboration between the City of Burnside and Campbelltown City Council to investigate and identify the potential of the Magill Town Centre located around the intersection of Magill Road and St Bernards/Penfold Road east of the Adelaide CBD.

Both Councils have recognised that the area is rich in social, cultural heritage and presents a unique opportunity to create an exemplar ‘Village’ model that encompasses urban renewal streetscape improvements and urban landscape work. It can become a prototype for similar initiatives in other areas around Adelaide

The Magill Village Partnership seeks to achieve comprehensive renewal of the Magill Village experience.  It recognises that the most successful places evolve through government, business, educations sector and community members partnering towards the realisation of a shared vision and goals.

Master plan

The City of Burnside, Campbelltown City Council and University of SA (Magill campus) formed a partnership to investigate and identify the potential of the Magill Town Centre located around the intersection of Magill Road and St Bernards/Penfold Road east of the Adelaide CBD.

This area is recognised as being rich in social and cultural heritage and presents a unique opportunity to create an exemplar ‘Village’ model that encompasses urban renewal streetscape improvements and urban landscape work.

Over several years, the Councils, with support from the State Government, have committed to the project and have worked on plans to enhance the Magill Village area to improve recreation, social, shopping, education and business experiences for local residents, workers and visitors to the area.  

Following a community consultation process, the Councils adopted a Master Plan(PDF, 7MB) on 25 October 2013 which provides high level strategic planning information about how the Village could be renewed through streetscape and urban landscape work to benefit both local businesses and the community.

The Magill Village project incorporates power line undergrounding, streetscape renewal, and kerb and road surface reinstatement in the section of Magill Road from East Street to Briant Road.

Underground power lines

Council, in collaboration with the City of Campbelltown and with the support of the State Government, are undertaking works to underground power and improve the streetscape on Magill Road for businesses, residents and visitors.

Works have commenced and will continue throughout 2019. These works will involve civil construction work to create the trenches on the road way and electrical pits in the road verge on both sides of the road.  New trenches will be constructed to connect the pits to the main powerline trench.

As these construction works are completed, new cable will be installed and properties will be connected to the new power lines.  The Stobie poles will then be removed. 

More information on the works and when they will take place can be found in the 'Related Information' section below.

Concept design

An updated Concept Design(PDF, 6MB) (2018) was prepared to provide more refined information and visually demonstrate how Magill Village may look in the future.

Work will involve reinstating the kerb and road surface as well as streetscape renewal incorporating paving, landscaping and street furniture.
