Lochiel Park

May 20, 2014  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (15:24): I draw the house's attention to the award-winning Lochiel Park 'green village' in Campbelltown in Hartley. For those members who are not aware of the development, the Lochiel Park model community was opened in 2008 by the then premier Mike Rann and it is the centrepiece of the Labor government's plan (at the time) for sustainable living into the future. It is actually said to be the most environmentally friendly development in South Australia.

Glynde Substation

May 08, 2014  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (15:22): I rise today to speak about SA Power Networks' proposal to build an electricity substation on the corner of Barnes Road and Davis Road in Glynde, a suburb which lies in my electorate of Hartley. Unfortunately for the residents of Glynde, under the current proposal the site for this proposed substation is in the middle of residential Glynde, adjacent to the Aveo Retirement Village, which is home to dozens of elderly members of my electorate. These residents, as well as many others in Glynde, have raised significant objections to this proposal for many years and this controversial proposal was a central issue in the election that has just passed.
