217 East Terrace

3 months ago

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding the development at 217 East Terrace, Adelaide. We apologise for the delay in coming back to you with an update.

As a result of the consultation, we recognise that concerns from local residents are primarily focused around 3 main aspects of the current development site:

  • the potential impacts of closing East Terrace
  • the noise and disturbance generated from the speed humps
  • the loss of on-street parking as a result of the site set up

Council’s primary focus has always been to maintain the highest level of safety and accessibility for the site and the local area. We strive to mitigate the impacts felt by the local community whilst also recognising our role in supporting the growth and development of our City.

Since the consultation period closed on the 9th of May, we have been in negotiations with the developer to try and reach a resolution that takes in to consideration the concerns of all stakeholders.

As a result of the feedback and after negotiations with the developer, we can now advise that the developer has agreed to remove the speed humps and allow the road to remain open. This will involve the installation of a pedestrian refuge which aims to encourage drivers to reduce their speed when travelling through the site, whilst also providing increased safety to pedestrians and site workers crossing the road. This is to be installed on Saturday 1st June 2019.

In relation to the loss of on-street parking, our Parking and Information Officers have increased their monitoring of the area to ensure that parking controls are being adhered to. We will also conduct a review of the on-street parking once the new traffic management is in place. We are investigating whether there are alternative temporary arrangements we can put in place to facilitate access of on-street parking to residents and their visitors.

Once again, we apologise that this has taken some time to come to this resolution. If you would like further information please contact us on 8203 7203.
