Dear Unley Resident,
Development in the City of Unley is regulated by your Council’s Development Plan which is currently being amended to better align with the State Government’s 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide. This alignment is a statutory requirement for your Council. The proposed amendments are significant with height limits increased for multi-story developments on Unley and Greenhill Roads. Comments on the proposed amendments are now being sought from the Unley community.
The information brochure attached very briefly outlines the changes many of which have the potential to affect the amenity of residential living. A more detailed Fact Sheet [29 pages] is available from the Council Office. The full plan [89 pages] and the Investigation supporting the plan [85 pages] can be viewed on Council’s website www.unley.sa.gov.au or at the Council Office and Libraries. Now is the time to comment on the Development Plan Amendment. Council is running two information sessions for residents. FOCUS encourages you to attend one of the sessions but your written submission must be lodged no later than 22 February. It is better to have your say now and possibly influence the Amendment to the Development Plan, rather than later!
To further help your understanding of the Development Plan, FOCUS has arranged a special Briefing by David Brown, Unley’s Principal Policy Planner. See flyer overleaf for details. This briefing meeting also provides the opportunity to hear the views of other residents before you lodge your submission with Council.
FOCUS was formed to be a voice for preserving the historical character of Unley. FOCUS is not against development but rather would encourage good development without detracting from Unley’s charm.
We hope to see you at the Briefing on 7 February. Yours sincerely
President, Friends of City of Unley Society
