St Peters Street Draft Concept Plan
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.
