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

The Development Plan Amendment (DPA) is part of a coordinated Inner Metropolitan Growth Project with the State Government and a key response to the strategies and growth targets of The 30-year Plan for Greater Adelaide. The DPA is a part of Councils program to address required growth by implementing change to achieve a diverse and sustainable community into the future while maintaining the intrinsic character of the City.
The City of Unley is seeking your comments on the proposed DPA to the Unley (City) Development Plan.
Policy amendments in the DPA affect the zoning and intensity of development for the main road corridors and centres in the City ofUnley. This Stage involves priority areas where the development market has indicated demand. Investigations supported the selection of Greenhill Road and Unley Road main street areas to apply the proposed Urban Corridor Zone (refer to the Affected Area Map).
Your views are important even if you are not directly affected, as this is part of a program to review the planning and zoning policies for all of the main road corridors in the City.
