The Consultation Report is available in the documents section right of this page.

The results of this consultation were presented to Council at the meeting on Tuesday 23 June 2020 along with a draft permit. The decision was made to approve the issuing of a Section 222 permit to allow the Stirling Market's to continue closing Druid Avenue once per month for the period 1 July 2020 - 30 June 2025. Visit our Council Meetings page to view the resolution in the meeting minutes.


The Stirling Market has been operating for over 30 years, including many years running a monthly market on Druid Avenue. Popular with Hills residents and well-known in greater Adelaide, the event attracts thousands of visitors each month. The Market is managed by a committee of volunteers and donates approximately $15,000 back into the town and community every year through its grants program.

The Stirling Market currently holds a 5 year permit from the Adelaide Hills Council to close a portion of Druid Avenue once per month to run a market day. This permit is due to expire on 30 June 2020. Pursuant to Section 223 of the Local Government Act 1999, public consultation must be undertaken in line with Council’s Public Consultation Policy prior to a new permit being issued.

We invited feedback from the public between Wednesday 6 and Friday 29 May 2020 on the proposed permit renewal. The permit would grant the Stirling Market permission to continue to close Druid Avenue to traffic, between Martha Street and Mount Barker Road, from 8:00am – 5:00pm one Sunday of every month from July 2020 to June 2025.
