Draft Policy for the Display of Business Merchandise on Footpaths

14/09/2016

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.

Beulah Road Bicycle Boulevard - Have your Say!

02/04/2016

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is proposing to develop a bicycle boulevard along Beulah Road, Norwood, which is a popular route for cycling to and from the Adelaide CBD.

Beulah Road has been identified within the Council's City-wide Cycling Plan as an appropriate location to form a bicycle boulevard, to offer a convenient alternative to cycling on main arterial roads, such as The Parade and Magill Road, as well as creating a more inviting place to walk and a more attractive place to live.

 

Concept plan

The Council has considered various design options for the proposed bicycle boulevard and has selected a preferred option, which includes the implementation of various safety and amenity improvements along Beulah Road, between Fullarton Road and Portrush Road.

The preferred option allows for local vehicle access to remain unchanged and on-street parking to be largely retained.

Benefits of bicycle boulevards

Bicycle boulevards provide a lower-speed environment on quiet, low-traffic streets where more people feel comfortable to ride.

Bicycle boulevards are designed to:

  • slow traffic and discourage rat-running on residential streets
  • increase awareness of people riding bikes along the street
  • position cyclists where they are visible to drivers and at less risk of opening car doors
  • provide safer crossings of main roads that intersect the route


Proposed safety and amenity improvements

To achieve a safe environment on Beulah Road and to encourage cyclist numbers to increase further, the Concept Plan proposes a number of safety and amenity improvements.

 Overview of improvements:

  • removal of the existing centre line, bicycle lane and car parking lane line markings other than between Queen Street and Portrush Road
  • pavement markings  (known as sharrows) at intervals along Beulah Road and entry points
  • distinctive pavement treatments for each roundabout side road entry to Beulah Road (these may include the use of pavers, imprinted bitumen or concrete)
  • raised table platforms (approximately 100mm in height) with distinctive pavement at three intersections (including Runge Place shown on the inset plan
  • mid-block raised table platforms (approximately 100mm in height) with distinctive pavement at 6 intermediate locations
  • Fullarton Road gateway with distinctive pavement, feature signage and extension of the shared path to link to a short bike lane for cyclists to move on to the road and to increase driver awareness of merging cyclists
  • wombat crossing adjacent to Norwood Primary School and Norwood Oval
  • extended median treatment for Osmond Terrace including raised thresholds for both Beulah Road entries, kerb build-outs to assist pedestrians crossing Osmond Terrace, distinctive pavement and bicycle lane treatment on Osmond Terrace around the Beulah Road intersections and a median upgrade incorporating pedestrian and cyclist routes, surface paving, trees and landscaping
  • eastbound bike lane between Queen Street and Portrush Road to enable cyclists to safely access the Portrush Road crossing
  • Portrush Road gateway treatment including landscaped build-outs, feature signage, distinctive pavement.

Schools Traffic Safety and Parking Review

27/11/2015

The Council has engaged Tonkin Consulting, as its Lead Consultant and in partnership with GTA Consulting, to undertake a review of traffic, safety and parking adjacent all schools located within the City.

City-wide 40 kph Speed Limit initial community consultation

22/09/2015

Background

Traffic management is one of the more challenging issues which the Council is required to regularly consider particularly given the competing demands on local roads which must be taken into account and the difficulty in striking a balance.  

Traffic management also affects the whole community and the Council therefore seeks to balance the needs of a broad range of road users with an appropriate and acceptable level of amenity for the community.    

 

Why a 40 kph speed limit?  

The main reason for considering the introduction of the 40 kph speed limit is to improve amenity and safety for Citizens by lowering the speed limit.

 Proposed map small

Key information at a glance

The Council is interested in your views regarding the possibility of introducing a 40 kph speed limit along all streets which are under its care, control and management.

In this respect, broadly speaking, the proposal is as follows:

  • introducing a 40 kph speed limit along all suburban roads within the City
  • the proposed 40 kph speed limit would exclude the named main roads, as shown on the map
  • the proposal would not change the 25 kph speed limits which apply to School Zones
  • as a 40 kph speed limit currently applies to the Stepney Triangle (shaded area on map below), no change is proposed for this area.

 

Consultation process and next steps

The Council is seeking your views as an initial step in its consideration of this proposal. Should the community support this initiative, then the Council will consider pursuing the proposal further. This would include developing detailed designs for individual streets which, in addition to the lower speed limit, could require the implementation of traffic calming measures such as linemarking, signage or physical devices (e.g. chicanes). If this were to occur, community consultation would also be undertaken as the next step.

In order to introduce a lower speed limit the Council requires approval from the Minister for Road Safety. An application to the Minister, seeking approval for the 40 kph limit would need to be made, and as part of this process, would need to provide certain details including the results of the community consultation processes.

The Council has commissioned McGregor Tan Research to undertake this initial community consultation process through conducting and collating responses to a survey of all its citizens and property owners. The survey is conducted in compliance with the Privacy Act.

The report which is to be submitted to the Council by McGregor Tan Research, will outline its analysis of the survey responses. The report will be made publicly available with no individual answers attributed to any individual participant in the survey.

 

How to have your say

All residents, property owners and business operators will receive one survey to complete.

The Survey can be completed online by either scanning the QR code or copying the link contained within the Survey into a web browser and entering the supplied Survey ID.  

To view a sample of the Survey, download: Sample Survey Form  

Alternatively, the completed Survey Form can be posted back in the prepaid envelope provided to McGregor Tan Research or you can drop it into a survey box at the Norwood Town Hall or our Libraries  

Completed Survey Forms must be submitted by no later than Monday 19 October 2015.  

The Council is scheduled to consider the Report which is to be submitted by McGregor Tan Research outlining the results of the Survey early in 2016.
