Adelaide City Deal

The Adelaide City Deal is a 10-year agreement between the Australian Government, the Government of South Australia and the City of Adelaide to grow Adelaide as an innovative and vibrant city. Governments will work together to deliver projects and initiatives that support the growth of businesses and jobs, encourage the growth of Adelaide’s population, and build on the city’s global reputation in the arts and culture.

Focus areas

Under the City Deal, governments will:

  • Invest in Lot Fourteen, the former site of the Royal Adelaide Hospital, as a hub for research, innovation, and entrepreneurialism in technology and the arts;
  • Put in place investment and strategies to connect Lot Fourteen to the rest of the Adelaide city centre and metropolitan Adelaide, so that investment at Lot Fourteen benefits the whole of the Adelaide community;
  • Support growth of South Australia’s skilled workforce and industries at the forefront of innovation and cutting edge technologies; and
  • Support cultural and environmental projects in Adelaide’s suburbs through new facilities and technology that grow the local tourism sector.

Next steps

City Deal Partners are now delivering our commitments under the Deal. The Implementation Plan released on 14 November 2019 sets out key milestones for projects, timeframes and who will be responsible for delivery.

The First Annual Progress Report for the City Deal will be released in the first half of 2020.
