There are over 400 suburbs in Adelaide, but our newest one is causing the most controversy. The site of the Cheltenham Racecourse is becoming twelve hundred homes, and a battle is being fought over the name of the suburb.

Charles Sturt Mayor Kirsten Alexander spoke with Angus Randall, giving an overview of the Council’s decision.
