Why is the Strategy being reviewed again?

While it is a legislative requirement to review the document every five years, it is also an opportunity to update the document and reflect the current focus on the Park Lands.

How have my ideas been incorporated into the draft Strategy?

Over 1,540 ideas from “Shape the Park Lands” were gathered and have been considered at each step in developing the Strategy. 

While not every idea has been reflected in the Strategy, they have been reflected where possible and in some cases have been reflected as a theme eg. “More water features”.  In some cases, ideas will be used to inform more detailed planning in the Park Lands.

I am only interested in the Park Lands near me. How do I comment on those Parks?

If you visit the YourSayAdelaide website, you’ll see that you can click on the map of the precinct within the Park Lands which interests you and go directly to that part of the document which relates to it.  You can then complete the submission form with your comments. 

This will simplify your feedback and you won’t need to read the whole document.  However, you may find that reading the whole document gives a better picture of what is proposed.

Why is the document so comprehensive? How do I navigate it?

If you go through the YourSayAdelaide website, you’ll see that as well as clicking on the map of the precinct within the Park Lands, you can also click on that part of the document in which you are most interested.

For example you can review the Vision, Outcomes or Strategies relating to a particular topic such as pathways and connections. You can then complete the submission form with your comments which relate to the topic that interests you.
