Welcome to the new suburb of Eyre

The New Subuib of Eyre

From Tuesday 31 October, residents living in the area bordered by Womma, Stebonheath, Petherton and Andrews Road have become part of Adelaide’s new suburb, Eyre. This means your address may need to change and you may need to update some of your personal contacts.

The South Australian Government is here to help. Other location details such as council rates, Australia Post and emergency services will be updated by the State Government and your local council.

Why?

This suburb renaming will align residents and rate payers currently residing in the new development of Eyre with the City of Playford Council.

This will provide improved access for amenities such as post and emergency services, and a feeling of being better connected to the City of Playford Council.

Community consultation saw a vast majority of support for this change.

When?

The naming of the new suburb Eyre comes into effect from Tuesday 31 October 2017.
