Draft Smoke-free Policy

15/03/2018

Feedback closed 5.00pm, Friday 13 April 2018

 

 

 
The Council recognises the need to protect the health of the community and to increase the comfort and enjoyment of all citizens using public spaces and public facilities, which will be supported through the introduction of smoke-free areas and events within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.

Background

The Council is committed to providing environments and events that are conducive to good health outcomes for the community, which may also have the added benefit of reducing littering. This will be achieved through the introduction of smoke-free areas and events within our City, which were identified in the 2015 Options for Introducing Smoke-free Areas and Events Position Paper. The Council has been progressing these initiatives since that time.

Community expectations have been changing in recent years which has led to increased calls to implement smoking restrictions in community spaces, such parks and reserves. Through the introduction of additional smoke-free areas, the Council will be helping to provide healthy public spaces, facilities and events for the community to enjoy.

 

Draft Smoke-free Policy

Download: draft Smoke-free Policy

The Council is seeking your feedback on the draft Smoke-free Policy, which will introduce smoking restrictions in the following locations:

  1. All Council-owned reserves and parks (including Norwood Oval and Payneham Oval, but excluding the Memorial Gardens located on The Parade, Norwood and adjacent to the Norwood Oval);
  2. The Norwood Swimming Centre and the Payneham Memorial Swimming Centre; and
  3. At all Council events, including those which are organised by the Council and those which are supported by the Council through a partnership or similar arrangement, within the defined boundary of the event.

The Memorial Garden has been excluded from the draft Policy as it will be considered separately by the Council as part of the review of the smoking restrictions on The Parade.  

In addition, signage will be erected at the above-mentioned locations to indicate to the community that smoking is restricted in these areas. 

For a list of the Council facilities, visit: Parks & Playgrounds - Location and Swimming Centres - Locations

Alternatively, your comments may be provided in the following ways:

  • in writing to: Draft Smoke-free Policy, City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, PO Box 204, Kent Town SA 5071.
  • by email: townhall@npsp.sa.gov.au


Who will be affected by the Policy

In relation to reserves, parks and swimming centres, this Policy applies to both public use and private hire of the land, and all sporting clubs which utilise these facilities. In essence, this would apply to anyone using or visiting these facilities.

In relation to Council-run and supported events, this would apply to events organised by the Council, and private events that have been formally endorsed by the Council, which could be through financial or in-kind support, and which have the Council’s logo displayed through the promotional material.

Additionally, this Policy can be enforced by the Council in any leases, licences, permits or other estates that apply to Council-owned and managed land and property.

 

How will the Policy be enforced

The Council has opted to take an educative and informational approach to smoking restrictions within the Council area and does not intend to enforce this Policy through expiation notices. Should a lessee, licensee or permit holder breach this Policy, the Council will investigate the issue and could choose to revoke the lease, licence or permit. Breaches of the Policy will be reviewed by the Council on a case-by-case basis.

 

How will people be made aware of the Policy

Should the Policy be adopted, the Council will install signage at all of the affected reserves, parks and swimming centres, which will inform the public that this is a smoke-free area and kindly ask them to not smoke in this location. Signs will also be displayed at the entrances of the boundaries of all Council-run and supported event areas. Information will also be available at the Council’s website and the Smoke-free Policy will be provided with all leases, licences, permits or other estates, where relevant.

Educational Establishments Review DPA

29/11/2017

Feedback closed 9 February 2018.

Schools DPA Flyer Map 2The Council is undertaking a Development Plan Amendment (DPA) to change the zoning and policies that apply to schools (primary and secondary) and adult education facilities.

Submissions are now invited from members of the community, government agencies, schools, landowners and residents.

This feedback will be valuable in considering further amendments to the DPA and in finalising the planning policy.

What is proposed

The Council has reviewed all of its existing zoning applicable to the 16 educational establishments which are located within the Council area. Currently these schools are located within 10 separate zones and 17 different policy areas.

The DPA proposes to introduce standardised zoning and policies affecting educational establishments to provide up to date and consistent policies for the assessment of future development of schools across the Council area. Specifically, the DPA proposes a new Community Zone covering all of these school sites.

The proposed rezoning is mostly confined to school sites and some additional land owned by schools. However, there are some isolated examples of where privately owned allotments are being included as part of the rezoning process.

Stepney Maylands Evandale LATM Study

20/11/2017

Feedback closed 15 December 2017.

View Study update >

 

 

 

 

Stage 1 consultation: identifying the issues

The Council has engaged Tonkin Consulting to undertake its Stepney Maylands Evandale Local Area Traffic Management Study (LATM Study).

The LATM Study encompasses all local roads under the care, control and management of the Council which are located within the area bound by Portrush Road, Payneham Road and Magill Road (LATM Study Area).

Download: LATM Study Area Map

The key objective of the LATM Study is to identify and address issues which exist within the Study Area associated with traffic management and safety for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.

The LATM Study will not include on-street parking as the Council is undertaking a City-Wide Parking Review as a separate project.

Study stages

The LATM Study will involve the following two community consultation stages.

LATM Study stages
Stage 1       

Stage 1 invites feedback and comments from residents, property and business owners and members of the public to assist in identifying the key issues which need to be considered and addressed.

The feedback along with the analysis of various traffic data collated along all roads located within the Study Area (i.e. vehicular volumes, speeds, classifications, cut-through movements and crashes) will guide the development of a Draft Local Area Traffic Management Plan (“the Draft Plan”). The Draft Plan will set out the key issues identified and propose strategies to address these issues.

Stage 2

Stage 2 invites feedback and comments from residents, property and business owners and members of the public on the Draft Plan which is to be developed at the conclusion of Stage 1. The feedback will guide the development of a Final Plan for the Council’s consideration and adoption.  

As a resident, property or business owner within the Study Area, your knowledge of how traffic management issues currently affect you and what (if any) measures should be introduced to address any current issues is considered to be invaluable. In this respect, receiving your feedback and comments is critical to the success of the Project.

How to have your say

The Council welcomes feedback from residents, property and business owners, and members of the public.

Residents and businesses in the Study Area will have received hand delivered information including a Feedback Form. Property owners not living in the Study Areas will have received the same information by post. Please complete the Feedback Form and post in the reply paid envelope provided by 15 December 2017. Alternatively, you can provide your feedback online or via email by clicking on one of the links below.
