What is 'Local Area Traffic Management'?

LATM focuses on planning and managing the physical road space. It assesses and improves conditions on streets where traffic impacts upon the safety and residential amenity of the neighbourhood.

Improvements implemented as part of a LATM study can include physical treatments such as road cushions, raised intersections or road closures, and enforcement and education measures.

LATM is an area-wide approach that considers traffic problems and possible solutions in the context of a local precinct instead of isolated streets. It calls upon the knowledge and experience of the local community to identify problems and suggest solutions and to participate in developing a traffic management plan for the area.

What is the purpose of this consultation?

The purpose of this consultation is to get your feedback on key traffic and safety issues that need to be addressed and measures that may be taken to reduce the problems.

Why are we collection feedback on Wayville / Unley / Goodwood LATM Study?

Your views will be helpful in assisting Council to address the traffic issues for the area. Traffic in this area has been of concern to the community over a number of years. The aim of the study is to develop a strategic approach to identifying and addressing key issues

What will happen with my feedback?

Council will be provided with a summary of the feedback gathered and presented with a Draft LATM for consideration for further community consultation.

What are the next steps?

The consultation period closes on the 31st March 2015.  All feedback received will then be compiled into a report along with a Draft LATM.  The report will then be presented to Council for their consideration.
