The State Government’s proposed rezoning of the Park Lands could open the door to permanent cafes, restaurants, shops and multi-story buildings in the Riverbank area. This would change the character of our Park Lands forever.
We secured an important win in the battle to protect our public space when the Legislative Council backed my motion opposing the rezoning of Helen Mayo Park to enable a sports arena on the Riverbank, but there are still some big challenges ahead.
I have introduced a Private Members Bill to ensure that the Minister can’t implement any rezoning of the Park Lands without the support of the parliament. This is an important safeguard.
Watch my second reading speech here.
Momentum is building in the campaign to protect the Park Lands but we need your help. Can you write to the Leaders of the Labor and Liberal Parties and urge them to support my bill?

Our Park Lands belong to all South Australians. Let’s send the Labor and Liberal parties a clear message that they are not for sale!
