Any update to this? Honestly, I hope it gets canned. More than happy to have Kaufland here as it provides competition, but not in the site they desire.
Yeh as the guy above asked, what's wrong with the site chosen? With the large footprint they require where else would be an ideal location for it?
I think it's a great location, especially if it's combined with the some higher density dwellings on that corner area. It might force the council/government to finally upgrade Churchill road between Torrens and Regency roads to be two lanes in each direction like it is north of Regency.

Kaufland can’t occupy the old Masters site at the airport?

There is a former never opened Masters at both Noarlunga Centre and Parafield

Firstly Kaufland buys/owns their sites and you would never see the airport site being advertised for sale (Federal land on leasehold). I don’t know the status on these other sites - are they even advertised for sale? Also it’s an illogical argument as the Kaufland sites are purpose built for their own requirements so why assume the Masters sites are even what they would want? Anyway we are still waiting to hear why the Prospect site is not suitable?

I thought they deliberately NARROWED Churchill road just 10 years ago? Wasn't this part of a beautification and traffic calming effort to encourage high density along this stretch? Surely turning it back into a major arterial is not desireable considering there is the option of Main North, or the Motorway to head north and multiple bus and train options nearby.

Well yes, but it didn’t make sense then and doesn’t now. Think about it...Increasing population density but narrowing the major road in the immediate area doesn’t make sense. Building a retail precinct which they’re still not finished with has added more traffic.
It is used heavily by vehicles between Regency and further Grand Junction and Torrens.
And there’s more housing going up on the same wider block as Kaufland which will add more traffic.

The local train stations aren’t exactly enticing to use.

Has this been approved by the council yet?
