District Council of Yatala South

The City of Enfield (formerly District Council of Yatala South) was a local government area of South Australia from 1868 to 1996. It was known as Yatala South up until 1933, which was named for its local government area predecessor, the District Council of Yatala, and known as Enfield thereafter.

The seat of the City of Enfield was the township of Enfield, approximately 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) north of Adelaide's centre, named after Enfield Town in the London borough of same name.[3] In 1868, the council area ranged approximately from Dry Creek in the north to the Torrens River in the south east and Torrens Road (unrelated to the river) in the south west.

History

Early years

The District Council of Yatala South was established on 18 June 1868 when the District Council of Yatala was divided at Dry Creek and the Dry Creek-Port Adelaide railway line into Yatala South and Yatala North.[4][5] The council office was located near Gepps Cross intersection at the northern end of the suburb of Enfield.[6]

In August 1872 the District Council of Prospect was established by severance from Yatala South,[4][7] reducing the latter in area by about 3 square miles (7.8 km2).

In 1927 the second Enfield council chamber, located on Regency Road, Enfield, pictured above, was erected.

In 1930, the recorded population of Yatala South was 4,979.[1]

Well over half a century since its establishment, on 22 June 1933, Yatala South was renamed to be the District Council of Enfield following lobbying from residents.[5] The district council was now named after its major population centre and council seat, the township of Enfield.

Municipality

In April 1944 the Enfield council was granted municipal status, becoming the Town of Enfield. In January 1953, the population had reached a point where the municipality was granted city status and known thereafter as the City of Enfield.[4] The chairman of the council became the mayor from 1944.[8]

In March 1996 the City of Enfield merged with the City of Port Adelaide to form the City of Port Adelaide Enfield.[4]
