In 2003, South Australian‐based property developer Vosporos proposed a 100ha residential development at Buckland Park and sought Major Development Status. This initial proposal was rejected by the Governor who made an “Early No” decision under the Development Act 1993 (Government of South Australia 1993) for several reasons. The area was low‐lying and flood prone from the Gawler River; there was also a lack of available potable water and infrastructure to service the development.
