The construction of high-

Barker would take years to

develop,” he said.
The council was expected

DPA at the end of last year,
but councillors voted to defer
the topic to a future meeting
to allow for more time to
workshop the item.
Mr Voortman said the

the DPA before it will be

A pop-up exhibition in Lobethal is
showing the town’s old woollen mill – now
a business hub – through lens old and new.
Called The Mill in Focus: Then and Now,
the photography exhibition features historic
images from the 1870 through to the early
1930s, a special series of photographs marking
the mill’s official closure in the early 1990s and
contemporary images of the mill using modern
photographic techniques taken by five Hills
The event is a follow-on from a successful SA
Living Artists exhibition, with a mill theme,
that was held last year as part of the Art @ the
Heart (of the Hills) project.
The project aims to use empty spaces around
the town – including vacant buildings in the
mill (now called the Adelaide Hills Business
and Tourism Centre) and the main street – to
support local artists, boost tourism and work
towards a permanent place for art.
Anne Griffiths the curator of The Mill in
Focus: Then and Now, said organisers hoped
the exhibition would forge a link between the
mill’s 122-year textile manufacturing history
and its future as an industrial site.
“The woollen mill will always be fundamental
to the identity of Lobethal,” she said.
“It has nurtured a town and its community,
given it economic purpose and strong social

by local photographers who were asked to view
the mill through the lens of the present-day to
express their reactions to the sense of place.
Their efforts were judged by well-know
photographer Ervin Janek as part of a
competition, and they will also be for sale.
The exhibition is being held in Building
