A master plan is a document that outlines a long term vision to guide growth and development of a defined area. It isn’t a detailed design but is a high level plan intended to set out objectives and strategies to manage development and change over time.
It is a process that defines what is important about a place and how its character and quality can be conserved, improved and enhanced.
The master plan is for long term planning and will help us to look at this network of laneways as a connecting link rather than how they might be improved in isolation or parts.
It will include outlining recommendations for how laneways are prioritised for improvements. Improvements are dependent on future funding allocation and will be aligned to planned asset renewal where possible.
Renewal SA has responsibility for the ongoing maintenance, management and eventual removal of the parklets. The timeframe for removal of the parklets will be determined in collaboration with the Bank Street community and Renewal SA through this engagement.
The station to market link is the first laneways network we are examining for future improvements. We anticipate that we will be able to apply the same model and approach to other laneway networks in the city.
Community engagement on the future of the Laneways will provide insight into the extensive laneway network and help us gain a better understanding of the day-to-day uses, issues, opportunities and constraints.
The feedback will assist in developing concept designs and upgrade options for priority laneways identified through the consultation process.
Once laneways are prioritised for improvements, further engagement and discussion on more detailed design for specific streets may form part of future work.
