    Review of the Parking Control Trial in Gladys Elphick/Narnungga (Park 25): If you use the car parks in Park 25 or are a user of the Park Lands, we want to hear from you about the trial of the parking controls introduced in this location, to determine whether the changes implemented with the re-opening of the car parks are appropriate for users.
    State Planning Reform: South Australia’s urban and regional planning system is currently undergoing its biggest reform in over 25 years.

    One of the biggest changes includes creating a single State-wide planning rulebook for assessing all development applications. The new Planning and Design Code will create changes that will impact every property in South Australia in some way, so be sure to find out if/how it will affect you.
    The reform of the State planning system is being undertaken by the State Planning Commission, not the City of Adelaide. We encourage you to provide feedback to the consultation by 28 February 2020 by clicking through to the SA Planning Portal.

    UPDATES

    You may recall the highly successful Feeling Hot Hot Hot! project and event from last summer? An initiative of the Resilient East, it prompted people to think about their own preparedness, vulnerability to and response to extreme heat. Building on from the findings and in an effort to further support our community, we've published the Getting Ready for Heatwaves page where you can find useful tips and related events.

    Summer is just around the corner!


    UPCOMING PROJECTS
    Rymill Park / Murlawirrapurka (Park 14): two separate consultations will open in late November on the Draft Master Plan and the Community Land Management Plan for this area of the Park Lands. Keep your eyes on this space to have your say.

    Development Update

    In March 2019 Council shortlisted developers to move through to Stage 2 of the process, which requires the developers to provide detailed proposals for consideration by Council. Selection of a preferred development partner is anticipated by the end of 2019. Negotiations with the selected developer may continue into early 2020. Council is committed to delivering a fiscally responsible, timely development that delivers public value.

    Development Update

    In March 2019 Council shortlisted developers to move through to Stage 2 of the process, which requires the developers to provide detailed proposals for consideration by Council.

Council is committed to delivering a fiscally responsible, timely development that delivers public value.

    Activation Update

    In May 2018, the City of Adelaide consulted with the community to hear their aspirations for the short-term activation and long-term development of 88 O’Connell Street. The comments received indicated a strong desire to see the site activated in the short term. Since April 2018, Council has run a successful event and activation program.

    Most recently the Wild Goblin Garden ran during the April school holidays and was enjoyed by over 2,000 families.

    Council also supported the North Adelaide Rare & Classic Show in April by creating a fun and exciting kids activation zone, as well as managed attendee car parking on the site. Over 3,000 people enjoyed the kids’ zone over the afternoon.

    Eighty-Eight O’Connell is currently celebrating History Festival by sharing some stories of North Adelaide through a display of giant books.

    As work continues to select a development partner to undertake the long-term development of the site, Council is re-evaluating how short-term activations are delivered onsite, in particular, ways in which the site could be activated more often.

    The City of Adelaide is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI’s) from parties that can create an activation program at 88 O’Connell Street for a period of up to two years. The offering should seek to bring people together, facilitate community connections and contribute to economic vitality. Click here for more information.

    The EOI has opened today 23 May and closes 5pm, Friday 14 June.

    In addition, Council is currently investigating a number of parking options for the site and will continue to provide further updates on the development, activation EOI and parking.
