Consultation on Unsolicited Bid by Bickfords Australia

In September last year, the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, the Hon Ian Hunter MLC announced that a proposal from Bickfords Australia, to develop a visitor and function centre, microbrewery and distillery at Kingscote Wharf, would be assessed under the State Government’s Unsolicited Proposal framework.

As the proposed site is on Crown Land currently dedicated to the KI Council, and incorporates the former Kingscote Police Station and Gaol Cells, the KI Council has now begun consultation on behalf of the government to process the proposal. This consultation process will conclude on 1 July 2016. 

Bickfords Australia will also be hosting two public open-day events at Kingscote on 20-21 June 2016.

More information about the proposal and consultation process is available here or on the Kangaroo Island Council's website.
