Future of Fort Largs secured with AVJennings and National Trust partnership
A partnership between the State Government, the National Trust and developer AV Jennings has been announced to secure the future of the historic Fort Largs while allowing for a new residential development in Adelaide’s western suburbs.
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Stephen Mullighan announced the partnership at the fort on 17 June. The Trust has been campaigning with other community organisations for the preservation of the fort and associated heritage buildings on the site since 2014.
We secured state heritage protection for the World War II barracks and drill hall, alongside the original fort, which was listed by the Trust in 1973 and state heritage listed in 1986. The new development will see the fort fully restored and made open to the public for the first time under the care of the National Trust.
