Concerns with major development process


In light of recent major development declarations for developments within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, the Council wishes to raise public awareness of its concerns with the development assessment process for declared major developments in South Australia.

The major development declarations the Council is concerned with include the Peregrine Corporation Headquarters development on the corner of Portrush Road and The Parade, Kensington and two Aged Care development proposals by Life Care, for sites at Beulah Road, Norwood and Payneham Road, Joslin.

Due to their scale, these developments have all caused significant community angst and have raised serious concerns about the likely medium to long-term impact of these developments on local communities, in terms of loss of privacy, adverse impact on residential amenity, erosion of the heritage value and established character of adjacent properties and streetscapes, loss of on-street parking in surrounding streets and significant increase in traffic congestion.
