Looks like a portion of the former masters is being modified into a new tenancy, the colour scheme seems consistent with super cheap auto.

The current Supercheap Auto Bridge Road site has been advertised for lease for some time, so it looks like they'll be moving there. Much better location for this business.

I also see they've started to extend the road at the rear of the Masters site ready to link to the road in behind the bunnings and other tenancies. That'll make access out of bunnings much easier as you'll be able to get back out onto Main North Road/Kesters road, instead of only having the one exit via PALS onto Kings Road.

It'll somewhat be the end of an era if Super Cheap move from their Bridge Rd site, as that was one of the original Rocca Bros locations that Super Cheap initially took over.

Back in the day, Rocca Bros even sold fuel at the site!

Commercial development at Parafield Airport stalled by COVID-19 as noise complaints increase

Developers of a new multimillion-dollar retail development at Parafield Airport have delayed the project for the second time, blaming COVID-19

The $50 million complex — known as the District Outlet Centre (DOC) — was originally due to open in 2018 but was stalled because of economic conditions.

The centre has been promoted as replicating the Harbour Town development at West Beach, which houses fashion outlets, sporting good stores, homeware retailers and alfresco dining.

Its Western Australia developers, The Devwest Group, have told the owners of Parafield Airport they had decided to delay the project again because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a report presented to a recent management committee meeting, Parafield Airport Ltd (PAL) said it had agreed to delay the project, which would have 65 tenancies covering 10,700sq m.

“The developer of the DOC has advised that due to the impact of COVID-19 and the resultant economic, financial and logistical issues, the commencement of building works is on hold for the foreseeable future,” said the report.

“The developer has advised that they remain committed to the project and have support from their main stakeholders to delay commencement until such time as the market conditions improve.

“PAL has agreed to the developer’s request and will continue to liaise with the developer on a revised commencement date.”

The decision to delay the project comes as noise complaints about aviation training flights from Parafield have dramatically increased with more residents working from home because of COVID-19.

“The increased numbers are not unexpected given that many people are now working from home and have not previously been aware of the daytime aircraft traffic,” said the report.

Salisbury Council recently heard how residents were particularly upset about training flights being conducted during Easter.

Cr Adam Duncan said the council was working with federal authorities, Parafield Airport and aviation schools to try to minimise noise complaints from training flights.

“There are no federal or state government restrictions on flight training operations,” he said.

“We are currently working on a letter to all relevant ministers and senators asking for support for a change to any relevant legislation on the times training schools can do circuits above residential areas.

“We are trying to balance the operation of the airport and the aviation schools, which we support 100 per cent, with providing relief for increasingly suffering residents.”

The biggest aviation school at Parafield, Flight Training Adelaide, has tried to move some of its operations to regional areas, such as Port Lincoln and Murray Bridge, without success.

Cr Duncan said the success of Flight Training Adelaide (FTA), which accounts for 80 per cent of the thousands of training flights at Parafield each year, “should be celebrated”.

“But they have clearly outgrown Parafield and it simply is not fair to the local affected communities that they are able to operate in a near unlimited capacity shielded by the lack of any federal or state laws regarding noise impacts on communities,” he said.

The PAL report said COVID-19 had put a large strain on FTA and other aviation schools, with many having to lay off staff.

“PAL will continue to work with FTA and the other schools at the airport to try to minimise aircraft noise impacts on residents,” it said.

The company said it acknowledged its responsibility “to work with the local community and to minimise their negative experience regarding Parafield”.

“Please rest assured that FTA will go out of its way not to inconvenience its neighbours in and around Parafield,” it said.

Air Services Australia said it had asked airports to “advise their local training schools to be mindful of minimising noise over residential areas” during the COVID-19 lockdown.

if you don't want to hear planes going over your house, don't buy a house next to an airport

I know some people who bought a house in Mawson Lakes and complain about the noise, they only moved there in recent years so I don't have much sympathy.

I'm sure that Parafield Airport will get redeveloped at some point, as Adelaide grows the land will simply become too valuable. However those saying that the training operations should move to more distant airstrips around Adelaide are missing the reasons why they are at Parafield in the first place. The reason it makes a good training airport for those going into the airlines is largely because of its location and the complicated airspace.

Parafield Airport already is too valuable to be an airport. There's like 4 or 5 square kilometres of land that can be developed into housing. The land is worth well over a billion dollars.

I don't think it's going to be lost/closed any time soon. It's like the third busiest airport in Australia for aircraft movements.
Melbourne has Essendon and Moorabbin airports in the middle of suburbia, and they're under a lot more pressure with a higher population growth rate then Adelaide.
Same with Sydney they have Bankstown airport, and we always hear how Sydney is full.

Does anyone seriously think The District will actually start development. Apparently they were struggling to attract retailers even before COVID hit.

I don't see it right now. A Harbour Town style development works when it's big enough that it's seen as a destination in its own right, which requires lots of retailers.

As someone who lives in Salisbury, I can't see it happening. They would be better off linking it to Mawson Lakes in some form. There's already a half-failed strip mall (that was intended to house Masters) on Main North Road. At least the Officeworks and Hungry Jack's there has done well enough.

Supercheap Auto also moved from Bridge Road to that location recently
