Give us your thoughts on the revised Guidelines!

Background

A strategic aim of the City of Adelaide (CoA) is to enhance the role of the Park Lands in increasing levels of physical activity and wellbeing in our community through formal and informal sport and recreation opportunities. Buildings facilitate both formal and informal recreation in the Park Lands. There are approximately 140 buildings in the Park Lands comprising sports buildings, heritage listed buildings, public amenity buildings and infrastructure buildings.

Many of the non-heritage buildings are ageing, unsightly and are no longer fit-for-purpose. They do not meet current building code standards, disability access and circulation standards, and do not provide facilities for the growing participation numbers of women in sport.

Project Information

The CoA has updated the Adelaide Park Lands Building Design Guidelines (the Guidelines), which sets out the planning and design expectations to deliver outstanding buildings. We are seeking your feedback on this revised document.

The Guidelines are a “toolkit” to achieve high performing buildings that are respectful of their context, whilst also providing outstanding facilities for greater community participation. It provides a guide for all building development in the Park Lands and establishes a set of expectations for the standard of design quality.
