    Adelaide is a city designed to continually support and enrich the wellbeing and quality of life of its people. As such, in the wake of the impact of COVID-19, we're looking toward a positive future and want to hear what you need from our city in the weeks, months and possibly even years to come.

    Please share your ideas with us about what Council can do now and into the future on our Recover + Reimagine ideas site. There, you can also read and comment on what others have contributed and choose your favourite(s) by giving it a 'heart'!

    Please click here to stay up to date with the latest information about Council services and any changes.


    LIVE PROJECTS

    Kaurna Kardla Parranthi: Please note that given the restrictions on public gatherings, the event has been *POSTPONED*. You still have the opportunity to post questions about this pilot bio-cultural burn in Golden Wattle Park / Mirnu Wirra (Park 21 West) and they will be answered by the project team. Also, have a read of this Adelaide Living article for more insight on this project which carries significant cultural importance for the Kaurna community, the Traditional Owners of the Adelaide region.

    Field Street Streetscape Project: Tell us what you think about Field Street becoming a one-way street as part of a proposed streetscape upgrade. Click here for all the relevant information and to have your say.


    UPDATES

    Adelaide Football Club Draft Proposal: Thank you to all who provided feedback. Council received correspondence from the Adelaide Football Club on 03 April 2020 advising that they have withdrawn their unsolicited bid.

    Aquatic and Recreational Facility - Draft Needs Analysis: The community consultation results are currently being incorporated into the final ‘Needs Analysis Report’. The Report and future direction of the Aquatic Centre will be discussed at the upcoming Council meeting on 09 June 2020.

    Minimising the Impact of Construction Works: Stage one of the project identified issues experienced by residents, property owners and businesses during several major constructions in the city. Stage two will involve engaging the property sector which includes builders, developers, investors, architects and the construction industry in general to talk to, and work together with residents, property owners and businesses to minimise impacts.

    A Timed Motorcycle Parking Trial: Hindmarsh Square and Kintore Avenue: The timed motorcycle trials in Hindmarsh Square and Kintore Avenue have concluded. The two motorcycle zones will remain as timed areas to provide availability for motorcycle riders who only need to park for a few hours on any given day. To boost motorcycle parking in the City additional free all-day motorcycle parking has been implemented in Hyde Street. We will continue to look for opportunities to install on-street motorcycle parking where appropriate.


    Please note that the City of Adelaide Community Consultation Policy has been amended to temporarily restrict face-to-face consultation and public meetings. This has been done to comply with changes to the Local Government Act (1999) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    To ensure the health and safety of our employees and consistent with the Prime Minister’s directive for people to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary, as of 26 March 2020 the City of Adelaide is operating with reduced staffing levels. We will continue to deliver those services that are critical for the health and wellbeing of our community for the next four weeks. As a result of this, community engagement projects and initiatives will be reduced. This will be reviewed as the current situation progresses.
