There have been some great business successes over the past year in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide.

Many of these have gone unnoticed as businesses have had their heads down doing great things. These investments show a strong and active local economy with an exciting future. It provides evidence that northern Adelaide is well positioned to provide opportunity for business and to absorb the contraction of automotive manufacturing.

Here’s what infrastructure is happening in the northern suburbs of Adelaide in 2013 and 2014:

Mayfield Industries expanded to a 2.6ha site at Edinburgh Parks and Rand Refrigeration Logistics opened their $35 million refrigeration logistics centre.

The number of developments approved was up 11% to 42,222 in City of Salisbury and Playford with a total value of $414.7 million. City of Salisbury alone approved $225.6 million in developments over 2013-14, up 54% on 2012-13. As well as a big increase in the dollar value of developments in Salisbury, the number of approvals was also up – by 15% to 2461.

A $65 million distribution centre planned for Salisbury South would be amongst the largest private developments in Salisbury Council. The plans lodged with council are for construction on the old Bridgestone site at Cross Keys Rd, Salisbury South.

Masters Hardware plans the rollout of a 13,000sq m store at Parafield Airport to be completed next year. This will create up to 200 retail jobs and 400 jobs during construction.
