Plan for rail precinct

The Angaston Management Group (AMG) will soon release a $25,000 plan outlining the precinct’s historical significance in hopes to secure grant funding.

AMG president, Mr Steve Falland said the Conservation Management Plan was integral in gaining a grant to protect the area.

“This is pretty exciting because once we’ve finalised the plan, we can start to look for grant funding for the station building to get it preserved,”
Mr Falland said.

“The Conservation Management Plan is a document that will help convince grants committees (state or federal) why we need funding. It gives the justification on why we believe it should be spent here.”

Included in the plan is historical information about the first train arriving at the station in 1911, 37 years after the idea was conceived.

Mr Falland said the plan pointed out how the station helped the development of the Barossa.
