Festival funThe sun has set on another fabulous Summer
Festival at Lightsview. Thousands of locals and
visitors alike have joined neighbours and friends
for a series of stunning outdoor cinema and
family fun events at The Strand Reserve over
the 2016 Summer Festival season.
A fixture on the Lightsview calendar for the
past seven years, the free community event
series featured a hand-picked selection of
movies for all ages and was extended into
April when extra screenings made up for
unseasonal bad weather in January!
The Australian box office favourite, Paper
Planes, starring our own Sam Worthington
was also a festival favourite and the opener,
The Boxtrolls, was a big hit with the kids.
Thanks to everyone who joined the fun we
look forward to seeing you next summer!

Welcome to the latest edition of Viewpoint
from Adelaides most exciting new
address and Adelaides newest suburb.
Were proud to share with you this
tremendous news which has enjoyed
overwhelming support from the
community. The suburb of Lightsview is
now officially bordered by Fosters Road,
Folland Avenue, Hampstead Road and
Redward Avenue and it encapsulates the
Lightsview development site which itself
spanned portions of two former suburbs.
In creating the new suburb, portions of
Greenacres, Northfield and Northgate
have been brought together as one
Since its creation in 2008, Lightsview has
stood out as a progressive new address
that pursued innovative, architecturally
inspired housing set amongst high-quality
parks and reserves, so its fitting that it now
enjoys status as a suburb in its own right.
Lightsview has been recognised and
awarded across Australia for the housing
innovation it has pioneered. From
Terraces and Apartments, to breathtaking
custom designed homes on our largest
allotments, this cohesive and carefully
planned community has become the new
The adoption of Lightsview as the
new suburb name followed a period of
extensive community consultation by
Port Adelaide Enfield Council, and its
recommendation for the change to the
Surveyor-General has now achieved all
the necessary approvals from the State
Government and has become a reality. We
see this as an outstanding achievement for
the current and future residents who will
benefit from Lightsview being recognised
independently from the adjoining suburbs.
For our many existing residents the change
of suburb name is simply great news to be
shared with friends and family.
We hope to welcome many more residents
to Adelaides newest suburb, so for anyone
looking for even more great reasons to
call Lightsview home, please contact us
today to find out more about our the wide
range of land, apartments and house and
land packages on offer all in a brand new
suburb just eight kilometres from the city.

On behalf of the Lightsview Joint Venture,
comprising Renewal SA and CIC Australia
(now part of the Peet Group), wed like to
welcome all current and future residents
of the suburb of Lightsview and look
forward to bringing to the community
more of the high-quality features for
