The development sits outside the town’s suburb boundary, and officially falls in Elwomple. 

Project developers, the Peregrine Corporation, put a request to the Coorong District Council to adjust the town boundary, so the site can officially be a part of the Tailem Bend township. 

Currently, the official address of the development is 543 Dukes Highway, Elwomple, whereas the developers would prefer it to be 543 Dukes Highway, Tailem Bend.

Council moved to support the proposal at the June meeting. 

Mayor Neville Jaensch said what the developers put the forward is purely a change of address request. 

“We know they want to be part of Tailem Bend, not Elwomple.

“From our understanding the developers believe that, if the property is not correctly addressed, it could lead to all sorts of troubles,” he said.

Cr Jaensch also said rate payers will not be impacted.
