Engagement Snapshot

Community engagement with residents and property owners of Clarendon took place between May and August 2018 and involved a postal survey, an on-line survey, two community-wide workshops and one
community technical reference meeting.

Based on the feedback, the Clarendon community strongly identify and have great pride in the history, heritage rich built form and appearance of the township.

The comments most repeated throughout the engagement process were:

  • Clarendon has a unique valley setting that needs to be protected.
  • The rural landscape area is highly important to the setting of the town.
  • Need to protect and maintain built form heritage (this relates primarily to development within the core of the township)
  • Housing is seen as a 'threat' to the appearance of the rural landscape area and there is a need to avoid housing subdivision as seen in Meadows and Mt Barker.
  • Low scale primary production related activities was the preferred land use in the rural landscape area. This preference for rural activities reflected people's aspiration to keep the area open and relatively undeveloped.
  • Large structures and development that can detract views of the valley sides were not generally supported.

Background

Forgotten where we started? Please see the Project Information in the document library to help bring you up to date.

Next steps

Our next steps will be largely determined by the state government’s planning reforms.

The engagement process has helped distill community aspirations for the initial transition of the City of Onkaparinga Development Plan to the statewide Planning and Design Code. We will continue to advocate on behalf of the community to implement the recommendations identified through the engagement process, but also note that the State Government is the core decision maker in the final form of the Code.

We will be holding a third community meeting upon release of the draft Code (community consultation period), to assist council in preparing its submission to the state government. This is likely to occur in September 2019.
