  • Residential Growth in Burnside

    almost 4 years ago
    Open uri20140318 29727 qnj3dj?1395131803

    This consultation has concluded. Please go to the Stage 2 of this consultation.

    Burnside is your city and we want to help it grow your way.

    The State Government’s 30-Year Plan sets out a target for the City of Burnside to accommodate new homes in the City - around an extra 56 homes per year over the 30-year period.

    While some of that total may be taken care of by naturally occurring growth and the increased density already decided for Greenhill and Fullarton Roads, we still need to place the remaining extra homes across the City.

    Many people love living in Burnside because of its green and leafy environment. We take pride in our parks and open space and we take advantage of our unique position bordering on to the parklands on one side, and the beautiful Adelaide hills on the other.

    Like other areas, we are also growing in population and adapting to change. One of the challenges is the state government’s target for us to increase the amount of homes we accommodate within the City – known as residential growth.

    We want to achieve this target in a way that reinforces and enhances the unique characteristics that make the City such a great place to live, work and play. To do that we will develop planning policies that will allow the required growth to happen while maintaining the unique characteristics of this beautiful area.

    That is where you come in

    We want your ideas, thoughts and feedback on the best way to do this. We want to ask you two questions

    These questions are inter-related – the sort of growth that is acceptable in a commercial district, or on a main road may be different from the type of growth that would be acceptable in a suburban street.

    Information on the ongoing weed removal and replanting of local native species proposed for part of First Creek in Hazelwood Park.

    Hazelwood Park is traversed by First Creek and includes natural stands of River Red Gum and SA Blue Gum. The overall health of the creek flowing through the reserve is impacted by the large woody weed species choking the growth of native species.

  • Hallett Road Traffic Management Changes

    over 3 years ago
    Open uri20140318 29727 h7ze94?1395131827

    This consultation has concluded. 

    The City of Burnside is committed to improving traffic management and safety by updating the line marking and traffic control at Hallett Road.

    Hallett Road is one of the busiest Council maintained roads and provides a crucial role providing access to many local streets and areas as well as linking Kensington Road with Greenhill Road. Hallett Road spans multiple suburbs including Stonyfell, Wattle Park, Erindale and Burnside.

    The current line marking and traffic control at Hallett Road is minimal. It is therefore proposed to implement a new line marking scheme that will improve safety and potentially lower traffic speeds.

    Aim of the Plan

    The introduction of travel, parking, turning lanes and continuity lines (at intersections) will better define the road space. The visual restriction created by the line marking typically results in reduced speeds and safer driving practices.

    Additional Pedestrian Refuge crossing aids (similar to the existing refuge at High Street) will also be introduced adjacent to Newland Reserve and Elizabeth Reserve (corner Heatherbank Terrace).

    Go to the Consultation page

    The consultation is open until 5 pm Monday 3 March 2014.
