New masterplan for The Parade
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has developed a Masterplan for The Parade, Norwood which will guide the redevelopment of this significant mainstreet precinct.
At a Special Meeting held on 15 May 2019, the Council endorsed The Parade Masterplan, which forms the long term strategic framework for the planning, redevelopment and activation of this important main street.
The Masterplan has been developed to complement the numerous strategic initiatives that have been progressed and implemented by the Council over the last few years, including the introduction of the planning policy framework that supports significant residential, mixed use and employment growth opportunities in and around Kent Town and Norwood, and in particular around The Parade.
More specifically the Masterplan focusses on protecting the identity and appeal of ‘The Parade’, and how this significant economic, social and cultural asset can contribute to the experience of those people who choose to live, work and play on The Parade. Most importantly, The Parade Masterplan establishes a holistic vision to direct the progressive enhancement of the streetscape to support local businesses, encourage new investment and maximise community enjoyment and appeal.
Some of the tangible changes that are incorporated in the Masterplan include:
- prioritisation of pedestrian access and movement
- creation of safer environment for all users through the introduction of a pedestrian scramble crossing at the intersection of The Parade and George Street
- wider footpaths along the full length of The Parade and on George Street
- introduction of continuous footpaths along the intersections of The Parade and side streets.
In addition the Masterplan proposes additional street trees and landscaping and new street furniture, to make The Parade a more pleasant place for the community to enjoy.
It is anticipated that the George Street scramble crossing and landscaping within the central median between Fullarton Road and Osmond Terrace will form the first two stages of the implementation of The Parade Masterplan.
Please note: due to the large file size The Parade Masterplan has been split into two documents.
