    This feedback was considered by the Development Strategy and Policy (DSP) Committee and by the City of Unley Council in February 2016. A further hands on stakeholder workshop to explore potential options was conducted on 13 April 2016 and the outcomes considered by the Committee and Council in April 2016.

    Following conclusion of these discussions and further investigations, a draft Development Plan Amendment was presented for consideration of the Committee in July 2016 and recommended for endorsement, with minor alterations, for public release to the Council.

    The State Government’s 30-Year Plan requires Council to advance the goals of higher density mixed use proposals in such precincts. The current process is important to help Council determine how this might be best achieved.

    What happens next?

    The DSP Committee and Council aim to finalise the planning policy proposals and a draft Development Plan Amendment (DPA) by August 2016.

    The draft DPA will then be open to extensive stakeholder and public consultation in the later part of 2016, when community views will again be valued.

    Feedback will be reviewed and any changes considered before the Committee and Council consider a finalised DPA for submission to the Minister for Planning in the first half of 2017.

    Unley Central Precinct Plan wins South Australian Award

    Unley Central Precinct Plan has received an Urban Design Landscape Architecture Award at the 2016 SA Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) Awards

    The Unley Central Master Plan was described as “a comprehensive, clear and accessible document which represents a cross-disciplinary achievement focused decisively on local community benefits. Since its endorsement in 2014, this clarity has enabled Council to move forward with projects seen as part of a bigger strategic picture of improvement, and leverage funding and state government partnership.”

    “Developed from six guiding principles, the plan led by Taylor, Cullity Lethlean (TCL) and team linked policy considerations with technical ones and economic outcomes, all under the driving objective of improving social conditions. In keeping with the visual accessibility of the document, TCL had also suggested a governance model for delivery, with a non-hierarchical forum for discussion of development involving Council as an equal stakeholder with others.”

    “The compelling graphic design and quality of diagrams, images and mapping, communicate the specific character of Unley’s valued heritage, while making a persuasive case for vibrant future developments embracing new transport, infrastructure and sense of community identity”.

    Background on the Unley Central Precinct Plan

    The Unley Central Precinct is the heart of our City. We want to create a smart city that:

    • is highly accessible and inclusive
    • promotes innovation, health and wellbeing and
    • provides opportunities for connection, inclusion and participation.

    Council prepared a plan for the Unley Central Precinct in 2014. Investigations for the plan looked at the potential for higher and denser building forms to achieve new commercial and residential developments in and around the District Centre. The plan also identified opportunities to improve the public realm and movement through the area.

    To help guide new development and achieve the goals of the Precinct Plan, Council needs to change its Development Plan. A consultant team led by URPS, (Urban & Regional Planning Solutions), has been engaged to provide recommendations on the desired urban design, built form, land use, traffic, transport and parking to guide the preparation of revised planning policy as part of the draft DPA.

    For more information about the Unley Central Precinct visit the Unley Civic Centre, Unley Road, or phone 8372 5111.

    Consultations will continue throughout 2016. Details will be posted on this page.

  • Katherine Street Park Update

    Katherine-st-concept_(1)

    Thanks to all who have recently provided feedback on design options for the Katherine Street Park in Fullarton. Your survey responses and comments have been important to ensure design concepts reflect the aims of the community and deliver an ‘attractive and inviting’ identity for Katherine Street Park.

    The development of this Park addresses a gap in the provision of local open space. As well as a place for relaxation, a key element to local open space is the inclusion of a junior playground.

    The development of this Park addresses a gap in the provision of local open space. As well as a place for relaxation, a key element to local open space is the inclusion of a junior playground.


    Feedback has shown that the community values:

    • an attractive and accessible open space
    • a safe and inviting park
    • a meeting place with opportunities for passive recreation, reflection and play.

    Features will include a junior playground with a theme of integrating play with nature. Other facilities will provide accessible pathways with seating and shelter for all users, with spaces for contemplation and communal gathering.

    The table below shows the results from the survey. The additional suggestions and comments have been considered and those that are consistent with the provision of local open space will be considered in the design phase.

    As the design develops, updates will be posted on this page.

    Katherine Street Reserve Concept Plan

    Our design for the Katherine Street Local Park has taken shape. The concept plan draws from key themes:

    • a safe and inviting space
    • an accessible local park
    • passive recreation and reflection and
    • junior nature play

    As well as features from the community survey, additional survey suggestions have been included:

    • drinking fountain
    • fences
    • solar lighting and
    • bins (with dog bag dispensers – for dogs on lead at all times)

    View the concept plan here. As the design develops, updates will be posted on Council's web page.
