CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future - Mid Term Review

Consultation opens 16 September and closes 16 October 2020.

CityPlan 2030 Mid Term Review 2020 large thumb

 

 

 

CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future is the leading document in the Council’s Strategic Planning Framework and guides the future planning, programming and delivery of projects and services for the City.

CityPlan 2030 was first prepared in 2007 and adopted by the Council in July 2008 following an extensive community visioning and engagement exercise. The Strategy is reviewed every four years with its most recent review undertaken in 2017.

The Council is currently in the process of undertaking a Mid Term Review to check whether the priorities and strategies are still relevant and whether adjustments and improvements are required. As part of that process, the Council conducted the first stage of consultation where randomly selected members of the community were invited to provide their comments on the existing CityPlan 2030. This feedback was then used to inform the Mid Term Review of the Strategy.

CityPlan 2030: mid term review

27/03/2020

CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future is the leading document in the Council’s Strategic Planning Framework, and guides the future planning, programming and delivery of projects and services for our City.

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.

The Plan was last updated in 2017. The Council is now undertaking a mid term review and as part of that process will be engaging with the community through a variety of consultation programs.

For further background information, visit: CityPlan 2030: Mid term review

 

Your say

The first stage of consultation initially involved invitations that were sent to a randomly targeted audience consisting of 1,500 residential and commercial ratepayers.

Unfortunately due to the implications of COVID-19, the community forums previously scheduled for 8 April have now been cancelled.

The Council is currently preparing a revised approach whereby members of the community will still get to contribute to the mid term review.

Draft Community Land Management Plans

04/03/2020

Consultation closed 5.00pm, Friday 10 April 2020.  

Felixstow Reserve, Felixstow - at dusk

 

 

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is proposing to adopt new Community Land Management Plans for all community land within the City.

To facilitate this, the Council is also proposing to revoke the Council’s existing Community Land Management Plans.

Comments are invited on both proposals.

 

What are community land management plans

Pursuant to Section 196 of the Local Government Act 1999 (the Act), all councils are required to prepare management plans for community land within their council area. Almost all land that is owned by a council or under its care, control or management (excluding roads) is classified as community land – including, parks and reserves, sporting facilities, civic and community facilities, and operational land.

Community Land Management Plans set out the Council’s objectives, strategies and performance targets for ongoing management and use of community land.

 

Review of community land management plans

The Council currently has 114 Community Land Management Plans—one for each parcel of land. These Plans have been reviewed to ensure legislative compliance and to provide a more practical management framework for the Council’s community land. Four new Plans have been prepared for each of the following categories of community land:

  • parks and reserves
  • sporting facilities
  • civic and community facilities; and
  • operational and other community land.

The Council’s Community Land Register has also been updated.

The draft Plans are available for download below. Alternatively, hard copies are available at the Norwood Town Hall Customer Service Centre or one of the Council’s Libraries

Proposed Dog Parks

10/02/2020

Consultation closed 5.00pm, Friday 6 March 2020.

dog park consultation

 

 

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking your comments on a proposal to establish a dedicated dog park in Otto Park and in a portion of Hannaford Reserve, St Peters.

 

Background

The Council’s 2019-2024 Dog and Cat Management Plan includes an objective to investigate the establishment of a dedicated dog park in the City.

Dog parks are dedicated areas where dog owners can exercise their dogs. Dog parks are usually fenced and may include facilities such as dog agility / play equipment, varied ground surfaces and landscaping (e.g. turf, mulch, sand and mounds), double gates, shelters and seating.

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters currently has 10 off-leash areas, where residents and visitors can exercise their dogs off-leash, alongside other users of the reserve.

 

Proposed dog park locations

Following consideration of various options, the Council is proposing to change Otto Park and a portion of Hannaford Reserve to be dedicated exclusively for use as dog parks.

If the Council proceeds with the establishment of a dedicated dog park in both locations, it is proposed that Otto Reserve would remain as a fenced grassed area for dog exercise.

Given the large size of Hannaford Reserve, including the recent purchase of adjacent land to be incorporated into the reserve, it is proposed that Hannaford Reserve would be redeveloped to include a section that is designated as a dog park, alongside an open space and playground area.

You can view the location of both reserves on the map below.

Borthwick Park Creek Improvements Draft Concept Plan

Consultation closed 5.00pm,
Monday 17 February 2020.

 Borthwick Park Consultation image

 

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking your comments on the Borthwick Park Creek Improvements Draft Concept Plan, which seeks to address community concerns in relation to bank erosion, water quality and access to Second Creek at Borthwick Park, Kensington.

The draft Concept Plan proposes some changes which will create safe access to Second Creek, tabilise the creek bank, provide additional native plantings, and eliminate stagnant standing water during the drier months.

The proposed improvements will further contribute to Borthwick Park being a quality open space by providing new nature play and passive recreation opportunities and increased native plant biodiversity and animal habitat.

 

Draft concept plan

The draft Concept Plan proposes to:

  • create safe access on the northern bank utilising rocks and logs to create natural steps down to the creek
  • stabilise the northern bank with rocks set in mortar to prevent erosion
  • place large rocks as stepping stones near the creek’s edge for nature play
  • plant new native trees and shrubs on the northern bank above the high water mark to revegetate the disturbed slope and provide habitat and amenity
  • remove the existing weir and infill the deep section of the creek bed adjacent the “beach area” to eliminate stagnant water during the drier months
  • undertake minor work to repair damaged or missing stone facing on the existing southern bank.

St Peters Street Draft Concept Plan

29/08/2019

Consultation closed at 5.00pm on Monday 30 September 2019.

 

 

 

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking your comments on a draft concept plan for St Peters Street.

The draft Concept Plan will guide the proposed future streetscape improvements of St Peters Street between First and Eighth Avenues and the Cliff Goodwin Reserve.

The vision of the St Peters Street Draft Concept Plan is to create an integrated street that better connects the surrounding local community to the River Torrens Linear Park, the St Peters Town Hall and Library Complex, Dunstone Grove, Linde Reserve and the Avenues Shopping Centre.

A redeveloped St Peters Street will result in a more attractive, accessible, safer and greener street.

The streetscape improvements outlined in the St Peters Street Draft Concept Plan link to the St Peters Civic Plaza and Avenue of Honour projects completed in 2014.

Explanation of the draft Concept Plan

The draft Concept Plan proposes to:

  • improve the amenity and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists of all ages and abilities moving along St Peters Street, through the introduction of wider paved footpaths (from 1.8m to 2.7m), landscaped verges and increased street tree planting
  • maintain slow local traffic speeds and on-street car parking with a reduction in the overall paved road width from 7.2m to 6.3m
  • improve the safety and accessibility of each intersection for pedestrians of all ages and abilities through the introduction of Disability Discrimination Act compliant crossings at the intersections
  • revitalise the existing central median, positioned over the Second Creek culverts, as a contemporary and attractive native landscaped corridor, bringing the character of the River Torrens into the neighbourhood and reflecting the alignment of Second Creek through the introduction of a meandering dry creek bed through the centre of the median
  • improve local stormwater management with new raingardens integrated at street corners as well as seasonal stormwater detention at Cliff Goodwin Reserve adjacent to Eighth Avenue (to protect against localised flooding)
  • improve the safety, accessibility and amenity of the Eighth Avenue and St Peters Street intersection with a redesigned junction including paving, pedestrian crossings and landscaping. Eighth Avenue is an important commuter cycle route into the CBD and the junction redesign would create a slow point for drivers
  • improve the access and amenity of Cliff Goodwin Reserve and the open space adjacent to Eighth Avenue and overlooking the St Peters Billabong
  • create stronger local identity and pedestrian links through the use of consistent paving materials and way finding signage between the River Torrens Linear Park, the St Peters Town Hall and Library Complex, Dunstone Grove and Linde Reserve

It is expected that a future upgrade of St Peters Street will improve the quality of life for local residents in the City of Norwood, Payneham & St Peters. Once endorsed by the Council, the St Peters Street Draft Concept Plan will be used to design and undertake future street upgrades.
