25/07/2017

All Councils are required to prepare a Strategic Management Plan which complies with the requirements of Section 122 of the Local Government Act 1999

CityPlan 2030 was developed in 2007 through an extensive visioning program with the community and identifies the broad strategic directions which the Council is working towards to create the desired future for the community of the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.

To achieve the Vision set out in CityPlan 2030, a series of Objectives, Strategies, Indicators and Targets have been prepared for each of the four Outcomes of Social Equity, Cultural Vitality, Economic Prosperity and Environmental Sustainability.

Beulah Bicycle cyclistsWe are reviewing CityPlan 2030 to check whether the Council is ‘on track’ and continuing to strive towards the aspirations and expectations of our community. CityPlan 2030 is reviewed every four years with the overarching objective of continuing to look ahead to the year 2030.

A series of workshops were held in late 2016 with over 190 people from across the community participating, including residents, business owners and school students.

  • three workshops with Council staff.

The comments from these activities were then summarised and reviewed to gain an understanding of which aspects of the Plan need updating. In particular, the Objectives and Strategies were reviewed and updated, along with the associated Indicators and Targets.

Norwood Parade Precinct Consultation

26/04/2017

\\svrfs\users\jadair cullen\Desktop\MP   Parade Masterplan thumbThe City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking comments from The Parade, Norwood business community on both the proposal to extend the Separate Rate on The Parade commercial properties for a further three years and on the Draft 2017–2018 Annual Business Plan for the Norwood Parade Precinct Committee.

The Council is keen to ensure that all business and property owners on The Parade have every opportunity to comment on both of these proposals.


Extension of the Separate Rate

The Separate Rate enables the Council to raise sufficient revenue to ensure high impact marketing and promotional programs for The Parade, whilst minimising the impact on individual ratepayers who will experience the benefits of these program through increased patronage.

The Council is proposing that the Separate Rate be set at $205,000 in the base year (2017-2018) and then indexed to increase in line with CPI over the subsequent two years, to market, promote and develop The Parade as one of Adelaide’s premier retail precincts.

This Separate Rate model for The Parade has been designed to ensure that The Parade remains viable in an increasingly competitive market, whilst bearing in mind the additional cost to the property owners and businesses.

Ninth Avenue streetscape enhancements

09/03/2017

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has identified a number of opportunities to enhance the safety, accessibility and presentation of Ninth Avenue, between Stephen Terrace and Battams Road.

Ninth Avenue is recognised as a valued character street and popular cycling and walking route between the Adelaide CBD and the River Torrens Linear Park.

CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future, the Council’s long-term strategic plan, aspires to create a connected, accessible and pedestrian friendly community, through pleasant, well designed and sustainable urban environments, including quality local streetscapes.

Project summary

In addition to the programmed road resurfacing, kerbing and line-marking of Ninth Avenue between Winchester Avenue and Lambert Avenue which the Council had scheduled to deliver in 2016/17, the Council has identified a number of other opportunities to enhance the safety, accessibility and presentation of Ninth Avenue for the local community, in alignment with the aims of CityPlan 2030.

The proposed improvements to the safety, accessibility and presentation of Ninth Avenue include:

  • resurfacing of the existing road and brick paving to the existing bitumen (hotmix) or concrete footpaths;
  • improving the legibility for local vehicles, cyclists and on street parking with new line-marking;
  • improving the pedestrian safety and access at roundabouts and across local side streets;
  • improving the design of the street to encourage safer driver behaviour along Ninth Avenue and the connecting side streets;
  • providing greater protection for existing trees along the street;
  • enhancing the tree-lined avenue of the existing street with additional or replacement trees;
  • reconstructing and replanting the roundabouts and establishing new landscaped kerb extensions at the adjacent side streets; and
  • providing wayfinding signage to improve access to the River Torrens Linear Park, Adelaide CBD and local shops and community services.

As a result, the Council has resolved to delay the programmed road resurfacing, kerbing and line-marking, and instead deliver the complete suite of works, including the safety, accessibility and presentation improvements as a complete package in 2017/18.

Concept plans

The proposed streetscape enhancements to Ninth Avenue are detailed in the Concept Plans below.

The Ninth Avenue Concept Plan will include the following five different opportunities to enhance the safety, accessibility and presentation of the streetscape. A description, location plan and illustrative cross-section are shown below to demonstrate each opportunity.

Download: Concept Plans - Complete Set


Concept plans image gallery

Streetscape overview

Below is a Concept Plan for the entire streetscape with annotations about the proposed works.

Click on the concept image to view a larger size.

Kerb extensions

Kerb extensions will improve the pedestrian visibility along Ninth Avenue, as well as improve the safety and accessibility for pedestrians crossing the street, slow local vehicle speeds and improve the presentation of the street with new landscaping.

Generally, kerb extensions will not result in the loss of any on-street parking, or restrict access to any existing driveway. At the Koolaman Street / Werina Avenue intersection, the Concept Plan identifies an opportunity for the kerb extension to capture and filter road runoff before discharging into the existing stormwater system. This will provide improved environmental benefits and will be a demonstration of Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD).

To connect with the existing stormwater side-entry pit, the kerb extensions adjacent the Werina Avenue corner will result in the loss of one on-street car park, which is identified on the plan below.

Click on the concept  image to view a larger size.

Street trees

Healthy, leafy trees are an important part of the character of Ninth Avenue. The new kerbing alignment will, where possible, provide additional support to many of the existing trees. However, the Concept Plan identifies three existing Jacaranda trees, located within the roadway and in poor health, that will require removal and replacement with London Plane trees.

The streetscape enhancements will include the planting of additional street trees where there are existing gaps along the street, in accordance with the consolidated tree species plan below. The detailed design of the streetscape works may require the additional removal and replacement of other trees, if they are found to be of poor health, structure or affecting the function of the street. The plan below will inform the Council’s longer term renewal program to replace existing trees that are ageing, of poor health, poor structure or an inappropriate species.

Click on the concept image to view a larger size.

Project delivery

The streetscape enhancement project works are anticipated to commence in the latter part of 2017, and work will be scheduled (if necessary) to avoid any disruption to the local community events held during the Christmas period.

Draft Policy for the Display of Business Merchandise on Footpaths

14/09/2016

The Display of Business Merchandise and Objects on Council Footpaths Policy was endorsed on 28 November 2016. Implementation of the Policy will commence on 1 July 2017.  

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is interested in your views regarding the introduction of a new Policy for the Display of Business Merchandise on Footpaths.

The Council is introducing a new Policy to ensure that the display of business merchandise and objects on footpaths occurs in a manner that maximises the benefits to traders, whilst at the same time, ensures safety, accessibility and convenience for all pedestrians and patrons. 

Whilst the Council recognises the economic benefits that the display of merchandise on footpaths provides to businesses and the contribution that it makes to the vibrancy of retail and commercial precincts, the unregulated and ad-hoc use of footpaths to display business merchandise and objects can create potential trip hazards and restrict access.  

Given that the Council has a duty to properly manage its Local Government Land (which footpaths form a part of), and to protect the interests of the community at large in accessing and using Local Government Land, the Council has developed a draft Policy for the Display of Business Merchandise on Footpaths to ensure that all displays on footpaths are established, operated and maintained in an appropriate manner. 

The draft Policy, which has been developed to ensure uniformity with the Council’s Outdoor Dining Policy, proposes to have all business merchandise and/or objects located adjacent to the kerb and not adjacent to buildings. In some cases (not in relation to any business located on The Parade, Norwood), approval may be granted for the display of business merchandise and objects to be located adjacent to the associated building. Approval for merchandise to be located adjacent to a building will be at the absolute discretion of the Council and will only apply in circumstances where it is impractical for the merchandise to be located adjacent to the kerb.

To date the Council has not issued permits to traders who display business merchandise or other objects on footpaths for promotional and aesthetic purposes. Through the introduction of this Policy, all businesses wishing to display merchandise and/or objects on the footpath will be required to apply for a permit.
