Development Plan Port Adelaide Enfield Council
Polygon Type B - Building footprint
Details (Known As) Dwelling (Former Port Adelaide and Le Fevre's Peninsula Cooperative Society Ltd Store)
Registered Name Dwelling (Former Port Adelaide and Le Fevre's Peninsula Cooperative Society Ltd Store)
Significance This building is a rare example of an early co-operative store, and is representative of a significant world-wide social movement, which flourished during the second half of the 19th Century. The former store has direct associations with a social movement that enjoyed wide support in its time, but of which there are only a few examples remaining. The Exeter store's value is enhanced by its relatively intact condition, and the fact that it was constructed specifically for its purpose by the Port Adelaide and Lefevre's Peninsula Co-operative Society Ltd, one of a number of such self-help societies established in Adelaide as a means of securing a degree of financial and educational advancement for working people.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
