Clarendon Rural Landscape Planning Policy Review

Consultation has concluded

Latest Update

The State Planning Commission recently released the ‘draft Planning and Design Code’ for public consultation that will conclude on 28 February 2020.

The Code will regulate all development in South Australia under one universal, state-wide planning rule book and will come into full effect in July 2020. A copy of the Code and an online map of zones and overlays can be viewed at www.saplanningportal.sa.gov.au.

Consultation on the Code represents an important opportunity for council and the community to influence the outcomes we are seeking. The feedback we have received through the surveys and workshops to date will be provided directly to the Commission.

A preliminary review of the Code shows that the key area of concern raised by the community, being the extent of the Township Zone boundary, has been addressed. The Historic Conservation Area / Clarendon Area has also been retained and reflects the existing boundary.

However, we are disappointed to see the absence of any subzones (formerly policy areas) for Clarendon (or anywhere else in the City of Onkaparinga) which would more readily provide a planning policy framework to articulate the unique setting and character of Clarendon.

We will be exploring this further through detailed analysis of the draft Code and should there be policy gaps, we will raise our concerns through a Council endorsed submission to the Commission.
