RIVERLANDERS will have
the chance to secure land at
Berri’s high-profile river front
development when allotments go
under the hammer in January.
Locals will notice a sign has
now gone up at Berri Barmera
Council’s redevelopment of the
former Berri Bowling Club site
on Riverview Drive.
The 25 allotments at the site
range from approximately 467
square metres to 961 square
metres and will be auctioned by
Elders Real Estate at the Berri
Resort Hotel on Friday, January
20, 2017, at 11am.
Council’s chief executive
officer David Beaton said the
development was an “exciting
time” for the community and for
the expansion of Berri.
“It’s a rare opportunity for
people to be able to get a piece of
land like this, on the river front,”
“You come down here in the
morning and it’s a beautiful site.”
So far in 2016, Bunnings and
supermaket chain ALDI have
opened stores in Berri, with work
also beginning this year on the
new sports stadium at Glassey
Mr Beaton said previous devel-
opments in Berri have been on
predominantly rural land rather
than in the town’s CBD.
“This is a once in a lifetime
opportunity,” he said.
Mr Beaton said if any blocks
failed to sell at the auction, coun-
cil would negotiate with the high-
Civil works are expected to
begin before the end of the year
and are expected to be completed
by the end of April 2017.
The river front allotments will be auctioned by Elders Real Estate at the Berri Resort Hotel on Friday, January
