30 September 2009
Introduction
The City of Marion commends the State Government for its commitment and
foresight in preparing the '30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide Planning the Adelaide
we all want July 2009'. It is a timely dynamic document that endeavours to seize
the challenges and opportunities the Greater Adelaide area presents in relation to its
population growth, transport needs, changing household formation, economic
climate, environment and climate change.

The Plan aligns closely with the City of Marion's Strategic Plan 2008-2020 and
Council is looking forward to achieving the vision for an accessible city based on
higher density development around an integrated transit system. Council recognises,
and supports, the need for increased housing choices, additional economic
development opportunities, provision of open spaces that support healthy lifestyles,
and neighbourhoods that express their own unique characteristics.

This response relates to matters pertinent to the City of Marion with feedback
identifying areas in which Council supports the Plan, areas of divergence, and issues
for which further clarification or consideration is sought.


Alignment of the Plan with the City of Marion's Strategic Plan
2008-2020
In broad terms, there is a close alignment between the Draft 30 Year Plan for Greater
Adelaide and City of Marion's Strategic Plan 2008-2020 (see Tables 1 and 2 at
Appendix 1).

There are strong links across the three key objectives of the 30 year plan with the
four themes of the Community Vision as follows:

               Liveability Community Wellbeing, Cultural Vitality
               Competitiveness Dynamic Economy, Cultural Vitality
               Sustainability   Community wellbeing, Cultural Vitality Healthy
               environment, Dynamic Economy

In particular, key areas of alignment across the two plans include:

               Sustainable urban design
               A liveable city
               A welcoming city
               An accessible city
               Vibrant arts, cultural activities and public places
               Affordable housing
               Transit oriented developments and connecting people and places
               A healthy and safe city
               Social inclusion and embracing diversity
               Preservation of heritage and character
               Economic growth, diversity, attracting investment and creating jobs
               Climate change resilience and adaptation
               Water security and protection of water resources
               Biodiversity protection and development of greenways

CHAPTER B
THE CONTEXT FOR THE PLAN


The Plan appropriately identifies climate change as a key driver for its draft policies
and targets and includes mitigation opportunities in response to the risks and
impacts. A number of these mitigation opportunities relate to dwelling types. In Figure
86 (p. 50) a graph highlights the dwelling types of low and high-rise apartments, and
attached and detached dwellings.

Council considers that greenhouse gas emissions by dwelling type should be
expressed as a per capita or per occupant measure given the likely variation in
occupancy levels across the various dwelling types. This would have the benefit of
expressing the true mitigation potential of various dwelling types in achieving
population outcomes and would present a 'like for like' assessment of the
greenhouse benefit of the various dwelling types.


CHAPTER C
THE VISION FOR GREATER ADELAIDE


         -ectives of the Plan (p. 13)                         44%Azts




C1.1    The City of Marion largely supports the Plan's 3 objectives of Liveability,
        Competitiveness, and Sustainability and Climate Change Resilience. There is
        discrepancy in the City of Marion's understanding of this last objective
        however, and that included in the Plan's glossary. The City of Marion
        considers the term 'Sustainability' to mean the ability to meet current needs
        without compromising the ability to meet future needs. Sustainability practises
        support ecological, human and economic health and vitality. Although the
        definition of sustainability in the glossary of the 30-year Plan is similar to this,
        the use of the word as an overall 'objective' of the Plan focuses very much on
        environmental sustainability only. The three objectives of the Plan overall
        should be aiming to achieve sustainability           not just one of them. It is
        suggested that `sustainability and climate change resilience' be changed to
        something such as 'healthy environments and resilience to climate change'.


       Principles of the Plan

The City of Marion supports the twelve Principles that underpin the Plan's objectives
as a foundation from which to build Greater Adelaide as a world-class, vibrant city
that is known for its sustainability, affordability, quality of life and accessibility to a
 choice of housing, employment, services and facilities, and environments that
 promote social and cultural interaction. However, Council supports the inclusion of
 two further principles on Community Engagement / Community Capacity Building and
 Supporting Cultural Diversity.

Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


Community involvement

The term 'community' has many facets and is referred to on numerous occasions
throughout the Plan. 'Community' is referred to in relation to community health (pp.
36, 63, 100, 130), community sport facilities (pp. 37, 134), an accessible community
(p. 37), public spaces for the community (pp. 37, 66, 87), community benefit (pp. 51,
57), community services (p84), providing environments that support a healthy
community, enable ageing in the community, and a walkable community (pp. 100,
131), and jobs in the community sector (p. 104).

This indicates that the 'community' is an integral ingredient in the implementation of
the Plan and that active community engagement is essential. The Plan does
acknowledge the need for ongoing community input in its implementation calling for:
'a commitment to a permanent and continuous dialogue with business, industry and
the community      (p. 146), and that key areas for growth need to be 'community
focused' (p. 151).

The Plan also notes that the development of Regional Implementation Strategies by
Councils in partnership with the Department of Planning and Local Government, to
give spatial expression to the Plan's policies at a regional level, will 'make it easier for
the community to see the priorities for land use and major infrastructure in their
region' (p. 152). This latter statement could be interpreted as a centralised approach
to the concept of 'community' and does not seem to support any community
involvement in the preparation of these Strategies.

Council strongly recommends that further consideration be given to how the
communication with the community can be incorporated into the process of
developing Regional Implementation Strategies. It is important to keep citizens well
informed, with an unbiased objective exchange of information, to ensure they
understand how and why decisions are made. Also, community engagement can
play a critical role in the development of sustainable policies and decisions in
government, the private sector and communities. Further integration of community
and stakeholder engagement will work to develop and enhance mutually beneficial
relationships, facilitate shared understanding and shared ownership of outcomes.

Cultural diversity

It is most appropriate that draft policies and targets have been developed relating to
Aboriginal heritage and culture (D5) however, policies and targets relating to other
cultures are notably absent.


With policies and targets for Population (D4) aiming to attract overseas migrants, and
those for Economy and Jobs (D9) aiming to boost employment opportunities, many
to be filled by skilled migrants, there is a need to include policies and targets that
ensure urban design principles support a strong cultural life for these communities.

Principle 6 'Social Inclusion and Fairness' could include reference to the role culture
plays in community life and the need for the public realm to provide opportunities for
a diversity of cultures to express themselves.

Planning for inclusion for diverse cultures also links very closely with the comments
made previously in C2 on the need for inclusion of a Principle relating to community
engagement.

CHAPTER D
DRAFT POLICIES AND TARGETS

       Creating new transit corridors,                                 transit-oriented
       developments, and centres (pp.73-83)

01.1    The City of Marion strongly supports the development of Greater Adelaide as
        a high quality, transit-focused and connected city, featuring higher density,
        mixed-use development in new transit corridors, growth areas, transit-
        oriented developments (TODs), and sustainable centres to accommodate the
        projected increase in population and jobs.

01.2    Council welcomes the development of two TODs at Marion/Oaklands and
        Tonsley/Bedford Park (p. 80) as State Significant Developments, and the
        designation of Marion/Oaklands as a higher-order Regional Level mixed-use
        activity centre. The location of higher density development within 800 metres
        of the transit corridors (p. 76) is generally supported, however Council
         considers development should be concentrated around nodes with a transit
         station at the core of each node. The focus on these areas to support
         residential and jobs growth is very much supported.

01.3     Council believes that future mass transit connections should be included to
         extend the current Noarlunga (Tonsley branch line) to the Flinders precinct,
         and to connect the Marion/Oaklands and Tonsley/Bedford Park TODs. This
         could incorporate the development of a light rail connection from Tonsley to
         Westfield shopping centre and the State Aquatic Centre to Oaklands railway
         station, then to the Glenelg tram.

D1.4     Council considers that the Castle Plaza site at Edwardstown could also be
         considered as a TOD/Activity Centre as it has the potential to serve residents
         of both the Marion and Mitcham Councils (although the issue of South Road
         as a physical barrier for City of Mitcham residents would need to be
         addressed). It is currently undergoing redevelopment and includes the
         TOD/Activity Centre features of higher density, mixed-use development.

D1.5     Council questions how policy and implementation directions for TODs will be
         affected by the major issue of land assembly where there is a range of
         stakeholders. A Development Corporation/Authority should be created, based
         on a model such as the East Perth Redevelopment Authority that is removed
         from Government to plan and oversee development of TODs and include
         compulsory acquisition powers which ensure fair and reasonable
         compensation at current market rates for any required land acquisition.

 D1.6    Council questions the ability of Government policies to foster densification
         within transit corridors with the continued release of large tracts of fringe land
         for housing as this will dramatically slow infill development and the
         development of TODs. Restriction should be placed on the release to the
         market of greenfield housing areas, and the rezoning of transit corridors for
         higher density housing accelerated. Alternatively,- or in addition, obtain higher
         contributions to infrastructure from developers to properly reflect the full cost
         of fringe development.

City of Marion
Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


01.7   Council considers that the Plan should require densification within transport
       nodes with stations as the central feature, rather than densification along
       whole transit corridors as this will not support increased patronage of public
       transport which is a key principle underpinning the Plan.

01.8   The potential for higher density development aligning the tram corridor (p. 76)
       is recognised, however e Development Plan Amendment (DPA) is currently
       with the Minister seeking approval for the expansion of Residential
       (Character) Zones at Glandore, and Glengowrie and the inclusion of a
       Residential (Character) Zone at Plympton Park. These areas align with the
       tram corridor, therefore limiting opportunity for higher density development
       along the whole of the tram corridor within the City of Marion. The Cities of
       West Torrens and Unlei are also likely to have residential character areas
       abutting the tramline. Increasing residential densities along the tramline has
       the potential to negatively impact on the journey quality for tram passengers
       with increased patronage which may exceed the capacity of the tram
       services.

D1.9   Other comments in relation to the D1 draft policies and targets are as follows:

       Increasing population along existing transit corridors is necessary to create a
       more compact urban form. The Plan however, could include a long-term plan
       to expand the rail system to build connectivity through an integrated transport
       system by identifying long-term development of additional rail corridor/s to link
       the existing rail lines. This will enable efficient travel, not only to and from a
       metropolitan location to the CBD, but also between TODs/Centres across the
       metropolitan area.
       The plan to have 60 per cent of Adelaide's new housing growth to be within
       800 metres of transit corridors (p. 74) does not make allowance for whether
       development is suitable along the whole of the corridor. The Plan needs to
       provide some flexibility, such as nominating 'up to 800 metres where suitable
       based on proximity to stations, topography, character areas, flooding, etc.'
       Also, it is not indicated whether the 800 metres is measured by road distance
       to be travelled, or a straight line. In Hallett Cove a distance of 800 metres
        from a rail corridor can result in over 1 km distance by road.
        In meeting Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
        principles in walking and cycling corridors, consideration will need to be given
        in the development of design guidelines as to how safety can be achieved.
       Many adjacent properties do not front onto corridors to enable passive
       surveillance; entrapment needs to be prevented if corridors are fenced
       through provision of sufficient access points; and landscaping needs to
        support safety through the retention and provision of clear sightlines.
        Policy should support the inclusion of park and ride facilities (i.e. for cars and
        bicycles) adjacent to stations in Precinct Requirements to further facilitate
       patronage of public
       As train stdtions are a focus for higher density development, policy should
                           transport.
       facilitate the concurrent provision of shops and services with this
        development.
        The development of a high quality public realm has been given a high priority
        in the Plan and to support the implementation of this, the Development Act
        should be amended to include a requirement for developer contributions.
        TODs, transit corridors, growth areas and centres should incorporate
        provision for all forms of safe cycling, such as 'Copenhagen style' bike lanes

         on roads that provide a cycling path on the road aligning the footpath that is
         physically separated from other road users by means of a buffer island.
         Precinct Requirements for TODs should ensure residential accommodation
         for a variety of household types to facilitate a social mix including the
         demographic growth groups of the aged, lone person households, couples
         without children, as well as families with children.
         Comments relating to spatial distribution of the population are outlined in D4
         Population below.


D2     The City Of Adelaide (P. 87)

D2.1     The importance of the City of Adelaide is understated in the Plan. Having an
         active, vibrant CBD is vital to the rest of Greater Adelaide to provide critical
         mass for advanced business services, large-scale cultural activities and
         specialist education services. The attraction of knowledge workers is
         essential for the future economic growth of Adelaide and we need a strong
         urban environment to help achieve this. The other parts, of Adelaide can then
         differentiate themselves appropriately while still benefitting from the vibrancy
         of the centre.


        Urban design (pp. 88-89)

D3.1     High quality urban design in the built form and public spaces that support
         differentiation in character in neighbourhoods, suburbs and precincts of
         Greater Adelaide is critical in creating a liveable environment, particularly in
         higher density areas.

D3.2     Council generally supports the policies and targets proposed. In particular
         Council supports the:

         Creation of active street frontages in the public realm that will support safe
         and attractive environments for active living (p. 89)
         Reinforcement of a grid street system at key locations (p. 89)
         Creation of water efficient environments and urban ecology through water
         sensitive urban design (p. 88).
         Provision of open spaces, greenways, green roofs and green walls (subject to
         water restrictions) to mitigate the urban heat island effect (p. 88)
          Creation of a built form that enables a seamless 'transition between higher
          densities .... and existing detached housing precincts'.

 D3.3     The development of Design Principles is considered important (p. 89) in
          ensuring the highest quality environments are provided. Design Principles
          should be developed to:
                                                            -   -
          Ensure quality streetscaping to alleviate visual impact of building
          form/bulk/scale, to assist with noise attenuation, and to facilitate accessibility
          for pedestrians and small wheeled modes such as gophers and prams
          Create 'Copenhagen style' bikeways where possible on roads that provide a
          cycling path on the road aligning the footpath that is physically separated from
          other road users by means of a buffer/island

Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


        Minimise on-street car parking to create environments that are pedestrian
        friendly
        Enable safe access by pedestrians and cyclists where public transport, traffic
        and people have the potential to interact
        Facilitate flexibility in building design so the use of buildings can evolve in
        meeting community needs
        Consideration should be given to how the design of buildings can assist in the
        meeting of energy efficient objectives in the undertaking of common daily
        household tasks such as clothes drying and heating of residences


        oPulation (pp.90791)

04.1    The City of Marion acknowledges the imperative to proactively plan for a
        Southern Region population growth of 82,000 residents (Map D8, p. 91) and
        its role in the state's economic and social prosperity. Council would like to
        raise the following issues in regard to draft policies and targets relating to
        Population:

        With population increases comes an increase in demand on our limited
        natural resources. It is recommended that the Plan should include actions for
        further investigation into what the sustainable (i.e. environmentally, socially
        and economically) growth limits are for Greater Adelaide. Without major
        changes to reduce the ecological footprint of our existing population, it could
        not be considered that additional population growth (even if it has a smaller
        footprint through better new housing design, TODs etc) will be sustainable.
        The Plan makes a very fundamental assumption that there will be enough
        resources available to support population growth without significantly
        changing the impact of our existing population. The State of Our Environment
        Report 2008 (South Australian Environment Protection Authority) states that
        in order to meet the SASP target of a "30% reduction in our Environmental
        Footprint" and increase our population to "2 million by 2020" (which the 30-
        year Plan is projecting that we exceed), a per capita reduction in ecological
        footprint of 54% will be required. Further information is needed in the Plan on
        how this reduction in the footprint of our existing population will be achieved:
        particularly if 80% of Greater Adelaide is to remain unchanged.

        It is considered important that in retaining 'regional migration status' emphasis
        is put on attracting overseas skilled migrants that match with industries that
        su *port the state's economic development.
       Aboriginal heritabe-aficicuiture (3:- 93)

D5.1    Recognition of the need to protect the Tjilbruke Dreaming Trail that
        commences in Warriparinga in the City of Marion, as a significant Aboriginal
        cultural and heritage place, is strongly supported by Council (p. 93).

D5.2    Additional policy could be included to strengthen the role of public spaces for
        the Aboriginal community. This should include appropriate design to enable
        opportunities to be created for Aboriginal people to practice their traditions in
        public spaces, such as art.

    Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide



            Housing (PP-94    96)

    D6.1     Housing quality arid diversity is critical in attracting and retaining working
             aged people, and in Greater Adelaide being recognised nationally and
             internationally as an attractive place to reside. Council supports the policies
             and targets for housing and their spatial delivery in the Southern Region (Map
             D9, p. 95). The need is also recognised for a mixture of housing types to cater
             for the growth sectors of the population that include the aged, couples with no
             children and lone person households in TODs, transit corridors, and centres.

    D6.2     Clarification of the terms 'low', 'medium' and 'high' densities would assist in
             the planning for population distribution and development of Structure Plans
             and Precinct Requirements (p. 94).

    D6.3      Housing for student accommodation should be highlighted as a separate
              policy area, particularly adjacent to tertiary institutions in TODs. This would
              particularly support the needs of overseas students, the attraction of which is
              critical to economic development.

    D6.4      Although the energy rating for buildings is included in the section on Climate
              Change, additional policy should be included relating to Housing that refers to
              the energy rating of housing in its built form.


    1b7     Housing affordability (PP. 97-99)

    D7.1      Council generally supports this policy that ensures at least 15 per cent of all
              new dwellings in Greater Adelaide are to be affordable and high needs
              housing (p. 97), integrated with market value housing.

     D7.2     Clarification is needed however, on how affordable housing is to be achieved
              within a competitive market place. As Housing SA is one of the few large land
              owners in Greater Adelaide whose primary role is to provide affordable
              housing, is there potential for their current landholdings, in what will be TOD
              sites, to be sold to developers to provide integrated, well-designed, housing
              incorporating 15 per cent affordable housing?

     D7.3     As a key role of high needs housing is to provide accommodation for those
              who require support for economic, social and health reasons, consideration
              should be given to management of high needs housing and residents by
              a 'pro .riate non-a overnment agencies.
                                                                                        :1,5E;kti
             Health and wellbeing (pp.100-101)

     D8.1     The   notion of 'health and wellbeing' encompassing safe, walkable
              communities that have access to high-quality services such as food shops,
              playing fields and indoor sports centres is strongly supported. However, it
              should be noted that 'wellbeing' relates to additional facets of life as indicated
              in the Background Technical Report. The World Health Organisation
              describes wellbeing as 'a state of complete physical, mental and social
              wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease' which highlights that the
              work, live, rest and play aspects of our lives all impact on our wellbeing.

Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


08.2    Clarification is sought about the model Design Code and its links with the
        development assessment process (p. 101). The Design Code could also
        include:

          Protection of houses along major transport corridors from noise and air
          pollution
          Measures for attenuation of noise from air conditioning units in higher
          density areas where the location of motorised units on one building could
          affect exposure to unsatisfactory noise levels for residents living in an
          adjacent higher level building. This would particularly be the case if the roof
          height of the building with the air conditioning units is in alignment with
          windows/doors in an adjacent higher storey building.
          Reference to 'pedestrian friendly areas' as 'accessible areas' that also
          encompass the use of gophers by people with a disability
          Dwelling design to ensure access to natural light and fresh air.

08.3    The development of Design Guidelines is referred to throughout the Plan (pp.
        103, 110, 116, 137) and the opportunity for these to support .active living
        should be considered. -For example, Guidelines could incorporate principles
        and outcomes relating to crime prevention through environmental design,
        bicycle storage at stations and in mixed-use areas, walkway routes, shade
        provisions, and appropriate location and design of street furniture.


       The economy and jobs (pp 102-113)

D9.1    The City of Marion supports the plan for high jobs growth and the regional
        approach to setting job targets (p. 103), and in particular knowledge economy
        jobs into growth centres, transit corridors and TODs. The role of the renewal
        of the planning system is seen as a critical factor to support business
        competitiveness.

09.2    The City of Marion agrees that sufficient land must be available for
        employment activities in areas that are serviced by existing infrastructure and
        also in areas that are near major educational institutions. There is however,
        no detail on job creation locations in the City of Marion apart from the new
        employment land identified at the Mitsubishi site, and potential numbers and
        types of jobs. The City of Marion is keen to see higher value jobs created.

D9.3    The retention of the Mitsubishi site as new employment land for a clean
        technology and renewable energy hub (pp. 111, 112, 138) that includes a
        range of activities, not just manufacturing, and the development of a science
        and technology cluster at Flinders (Tonsley/Bedford Park) are strongly
        supported for the economic development benefits they will bring to the
        Southern Region.

D9.4    The City of Marion also considers the Castle Plaza site at Edwardstown
        should be designated as a TOO/Activity Centre for the location of 'clean'
        industries such as offices, warehouses (as also noted in D1.4).

09.5    The creation of a new Housing and Employment Land Supply Program (p. 96)
        to ensure sufficient land capacity to meet annual housing and employment
        targets is viewed as positive to ensure equitable access to housing and

       employment. To further enhance Greater Adelaide as a sustainable world-
       class city that strives to ensure work place choices and enable its population
       to have a work-life balance, it is strongly recommended that consideration be
       given to including home-based jobs in the housing and employment targets.


010 Transport (pp.114-119

D10.1 Council recognises that the integration of transport and land-use planning is
      critical if the vision for Greater Adelaide is to be achieved. The important draft
      policy of establishing 'non-stop travel along the strategic north-south corridor'
      needs to be subject to proper planning to facilitate access along the corridor.

D10.2 Council questions the designation of South Road as a freight corridor in
       Greater Adelaide (Map D16, p. 116) as current levels of freight do not appear
       to support this need south of Cross Road. If however, the portion of South
       Road located in the City of Marion is designated a freight corridor,
       consideration will need to be given in the Structure Planning process to
       providing access to existing and future businesses along the corridor from
       Darlington to Cross Road to facilitate their future economic viability, and to
       accessibility for communities located either side of the corridor.

010.3 The designation of Marion Road as a 'primary freight road' (Map 016, p. 116)
       is not supported for the following reasons:
       Freight levels do not indicate a need for this designation
       It will have significant detrimental impact on the City of Marion achieving its
       portion of job targets as a freight road will impact on accessibility for local
       businesses affecting their financial viability
       If South Road becomes a primary freight corridor, Marion Road's parallel
       location potentially negates the need-for a second freight corridor
       It would negate the opportunity for businesses currently located on South
       Road to relocate on Marion Road which is within the same vicinity.

D10.4 If Marion Road remains a freight corridor this would be in conflict with the
      designation of Marion Road as a 'primary arterial road cycling network'.
        Council would advise consideration be given to the development of safe bike
        ways such the 'Copenhagen-style' (as mentioned below) to minimise risk to
        cyclists.

D10.5 The identification of stations to be upgraded to support higher densities
        around major transport interchanges does not include the Tonsley station, nor
        any stations that will be developed as a result of any possible future extension
        to the Tonsley branch of the Noarlunga rail line. Due to the complexity of land
        use in this area, Council considers that a station upgrade to a major transport
        interchange should be included.

D10.6 No mention is made of future development of the Southern Expressway to
      become a 2-way corridor (p. 117). Council considers this should be included
      as a target in this long-term Plan to facilitate efficient north-south access,
        particularly for residents who are not located in a transit corridor.

 D10.7 Critical in the target to reduce car dependency is the use of more sustainable
       forms of transport such as cycling. Greater Adelaide has been developed

                                            11.

Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


       over the previous decades with high priority given to the use of cars for
       private transport and this Plan provides an ideal opportunity to reverse the
       primacy of the use of private cars for most trips. The development of TODs,
       growth areas, and transit corridors presents an opportunity to include the
       development of safe bike lanes such as 'Copenhagen style' bikeways on
       roads that provide a cycling path aligning the footpath that is physically
       separated from other road users by means of a buffer/island.

010.8 To continue to increase use of public transport in the long-term, consideration
       should be given to the development of an integrated public transport system
       through the construction of additional transit infrastructure to enhance
       connectivity to existing rail lines (see 01.3).

D10.9 The provision of a 'park and ride' facility at Hallett Cove Beach station is
      supported (p. 117) and consideration of the inclusion of 'park and ride'
       facilities at all rail stations should be included in Precinct Requirements.


     Infrastructure pp. 120-125)

D11.1 Council supports the principle that Government agencies and their Chief
       Executives use the Plan for identifying infrastructure priorities and that Chief
       Executives of key state government agencies coordinate the provision of key
       infrastructure for new growth areas identified in the Plan. Council also
       supports the co-location of government services in major activity centres and
       TODs.

D11.2 Structure Plans for specific employment centres should include infrastructure
       provision. For the City of Marion these areas would be Edwardstown,
       Oaklands Park and the Flinders Precinct (Tonsley Park/Science Park/Flinders
       University/Flinders Medical Centre). This is where the vast majority of job
       creation opportunities in Marion will arise (10,000-12,000 jobs).

D11.3 To ensure the long-term provision of infrastructure, Council recommends that
       the State Infrastructure Plan be revised in line with the 30 Year Plan and
       include long term budgeted expenditure, and that the proposed timeframe for
       infrastructure spending be extended to cover the life of the Plan rather than
       the four year period as currently proposed (pp. vii, 3, 44).

D11.4 The Development Act 1993 should be amended to include developer
       contributions for the provision of appropriate standards of infrastructure in
       TODs, transit corridors and growth areas and infrastructure should be
       installed prior to commencement of any higher density development areas.
       Comment is also made below (D13.3) of the need for increased developer
       contributions towards open space to that specified in Section 50 of the
       Development Act 1993.

D11.5 Council has concerns in relation to the capacity of water infrastructure in
        proposed higher density areas that replaces existing housing stock. Policies
       and targets should be developed to ensure it is provided to an adequate
       standard prior to commencement of residential/mixed-use development.

Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


D11.6 The Plan should provide increased acknowledgement of the growing
      importance of broadband connectivity (pp. 120, 124), particularly in the
       planning of transit corridors and other infrastructure projects. Reference is
       made to the planned National Broadband Network (p. 40) but the Plan does
       not say how it can facilitate the early development of this. Tasmania has
       taken an early lead in the roll-out of this technology and South Australia
       should be following this example.

D11.7 The inclusion of bike lanes to promote safe cycling such as the 'Copenhagen
      style' bikeways should be included in infrastructure policies and targets (see
       D1 and D3).


D12 Biodiversity (pp 126-129)

D12.1 The City Of Marion strongly supports the need to protect biodiversity as
        indicated within the Plan. On a global scale, Australia is one of 17 Countries
       that have been listed as "Megadiverse"1 Further to this the Australian
        Government has declared the Mount Lofty and Kangaroo Island region as
        one of 15 National Biodiversity Hotspots2 . The 30-Year Plan states that in the
        Greater Adelaide region only 13% of the original native vegetation remains
        and areas with less than 30% native will result in species loss (p. 126). In
        order to protect this land that arguably contains biodiversity of global
        significance, restoration of land no longer containing indigenous vegetation
        will need to be a critical element of the Plan. It is suggested that the Plan
        provide further indication of how vegetation cover in the region can be
        increased to 30% or higher to ensure that no further species loss occurs (in
        accordance with T3.1 of the State Strategic Plan).

D12.2 The City of Marion contains remnant vegetation in Hallett Cove Conservation
        Park, Marino Conservation Park and O'Halloran Hill Recreation Park as
        indicated on Map D20. In addition to these areas, significant remnant
        vegetation can be found in private land in Marion's Hills Face Zones and
        MOSS zones. Although the native vegetation in Hills Face and MOSS is
        protected from clearance, no management plans are in place and very limited
        restoration activities are underway (see comments relating to the Great
        Southern Urban Forest, D13). It is suggested that landholders of MOSS and
        Hills Face land should be required to have vegetation management plans.

D12.3 Further to the above, Marion contains areas of remnant vegetation
        (particularly along the coast) which is in private ownership and in residential
        zoning. Areas of remnant coastal vegetation on Council-owned land were
        recently surveyed revealing habitats that contained two plant species of State
        significance and 32 species considered to be rare or higher in the Southern
        Lofty Region3. It is suspected that further species of significance occur on
        private land including an area of residentially zoned land that is suspected to
        contain an irongrass community of potential National significance under the
        Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. None of
        these vegetation communities are shown on MapD20.

 012.4 As a metropolitan Council, the City of Marion has little ability to protect
        remnant vegetation communities outside of conservation parks, Hills Face or
        MOSS due to the exemption zone under the Native Vegetation Act 1991. In

City of Marion
Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


              addition to ensuring that the Plan provides further indication of how native
              vegetation cover can be increased to beyond 30% and that management
              plans need to be in place for vegetation in MOSS or Hills Face, the City of
              Marion would like to request that mechanisms for further protection of
              remnant vegetation in metropolitan areas be included.

     3   _   Open space, sport and recreation (Pp.131-135)

D13.1 Council is supportive of the retention of the Metropolitan Open Space System
      (p. 131) as a baseline from which to expand the open space network and the
      development of waterway linear parks along the Stud River and Field River
      by 2036 (p. 132).

D13.2 In relation to the role of open space, sport and recreation to the population's
              health, which is well documented, it is noted the .Key Challenges and
              Opportunities (pp. 8-11) do not highlight physical, mental or social health.
              There is no State Policy Initiative included in the flow chart (p. 27) that relates
              to open space, sport, recreation or health which may have been a contributing
              factor to the omission of Health as a key challenge and opportunity.

D13.3 In creating living conditions for a healthy lifestyle the issue of a lack of access
       to open space contributing to a sedentary lifestyle, and its ensuing impacts on
       the state's economy, is noted. The densification of Greater Adelaide will mean
       a need for increased provision of high-quality open space. Council considers
              the continued requirement of a minimum of 12.5 per cent open space as
              developer contribution in new developments as specified in Section 50 of the
              Development Act 1993, is inadequate (p. 132). This should be increased to a
              minimum of 15 per cent useable open space (for active and passive use) that
              caters for a range of age groups and recreational needs. This open space
              should be in addition to the provision of greenways (p. 132) that are aligned
              with water, road and other transport and infrastructure corridors to provide
              safe walking and cycling linkages, and sporting facilities. However, with the
              provision of additional open space Council is of the view that consideration
              should be given to how open spaces are to be sustainably managed as this
              role has traditionally been the responsibility of Councils that have access to
              limited funds for this purpose.

D13.4 Open space policies and targets could relate to the provision and design of
      community gardens in urban landscapes, particularly in areas targeted for
      higher density. These would play a role in creating active environments,
      assist in the achievement of food security, and community capacity building.
      The development of Design Guidelines, referred to in a number of policy
               areas throughout this Plan, should also be considered for community
               gardens. The value of securing access to food is highlighted in the report

D13.5 Council would like consideration given to the development of an evidence-
      based hierarchy for open space provision whereby the higher the density of
      development in TODs, transit corridors and growth areas, the higher the area
        of open space to be provided.

D13.6 Linked to the Draft Policy of Water, is the issue of open space landscaping to
      incorporate plants adapted to local conditions        especially drought tolerant
      plants. Open space is a significant user of water and the use of alternative
      landscaping that includes a significant percentage of indigenous plantings
      could contribute significantly to the state achieving water security.

D13.7 The concept of 'greenways' that is introduced in the Plan is very much
        supported (p. 132). In particular, the City of Marion has a target to develop a
        minimum of two major biodiversity corridors including the Great Southern
        Urban Forest (GSUF) and Sturt River Linear Trail. The GSUF concept was
        established by the then Planning SA in consultation with Department for
        Environment and Heritage and the City of Marion in 2005. The GSUF is
        already recognised by the Department for Environment and Heritage through
        the management plans of the O'Halloran Hill Recreation Park and the Hallett
        Cove and Marino Conservation Parks. The City of Marion is looking forward
        to further implementing the GSUF through actions in the Southern Adelaide
        Structure Plan.

013.8 Council also considers that reference should be made to the need for crime
       .prevention through environmental design principles to be applied in the
        development of greenways as noted for application for all public areas and
        activity centres in the Draft Health and Wellbeing policy (p. 101).

D13.9 Council strongly supports the location of a major indoor sport facility at Marion
        for the State Aquatics Centre (MapD22, p. 135). However, it considers a
        sporting and active recreation facilities hierarchy should be developed to also
        include regional and local level facilities. Consideration should be given to
        community use of school facilities in the development of this hierarchy. Higher
        density development needs to be complemented by the appropriate location
        of additional facilities to provide opportunities for all sectors of the population
        to participate in physical activity to enhance health and social connectedness.
        This would support the Plan's stated aim of 'planning for integrated sporting
        and active recreational facilities that are accessible by all members of the
        community' (p. 37).

 D14 Clirilate ch.ange (pp.136-139)

 D14.1 The City of Marion generally supports the climate change draft policy
       directions in relation to the need for energy efficiency, carbon efficiency,
        thermal efficiency, the provision of open space, greenways and buffers, and
        the identification of the former Mitsubishi site as a national demonstration site
        for clean technology and renewable energy (pp. 111, 112, 138). Council also

       supports the formation of a Climate Change, Housing Affordability and
       Sustainable Neighbourhoods Task Force to ensure policies do not adversely
       affect the provision of affordable housing that meets Climate Change
       principles.

D14.2 Council considers however, that the 30-Year Plan presents a timely
      opportunity for the State Government to influence at a national level an
      increase in energy efficiency ratings. Consideration could be given to
       achieving this through the development of a sliding scale commencing at a six
       star rating that aligns with building density levels (p. 137). This would support
       the Mitigation draft policy 9 that states a need to 'set a baseline energy
       efficiency target for all new developments over a particular threshold' (p. 137).
       A timeframe could be included for implementation of rating levels.

014.3 Council considers the provisions in the Building Code of Australia (p. 154) are
       inadequate for the implementation of policies and targets relating to Climate
       Change that support increased environmental sustainability. For example,
       areas of improvement could include:

        Energy efficiency provisions to address the issue of embodied energy, that is,
        the energy used to create building materials for the building of a structure. It is
        suggested consideration be given to how mitigation and adaptation policies
        can support the measurement and reduction of embodied energy to achieve
        more sustainable built forms
        Better orientation of housing and buildings to maximise energy efficiency
        Regulation of the power capacity of air conditioning units in residential
        dwellings based on modifications to that which applies to commercial and
        industrial buildings     -
        Regulation of lighting requirements in domestic dwellings to minimise energy
        use.

D14.4 A further policy relating to existing and potential impacts and their mitigation
        as a result of Climate Change should be included that relates to the
        appropriateness of development in at-risk areas.


   5 Water (pp 140-143

D15.1 The City of Marion is very supportive of the institutionalising of the Water
        Sensitive Urban Design Framework developed by the Department of Planning
        and Local Government and the development of the Water for Good A Plan
        to Ensure our Water Future to 2050 in setting the directions to ensure water
        security for Greater Adelaide (p. 140).

D15.2 City of Marion is supportive of the need to transition to a "Water Sensitive
      City" including the need to work on institutional reform as promoted by the
        National Urban Water Governance Program, Monash University and
        referenced in Figure 4.2.6 of the 30 Year Plan Background Technical Report.

D15.3 The City of Marion see the Oaklands Park Wetlands and associated Stud
      River Catchment as an important opportunity for large-scale stormwater
      harvesting, treatment and reuse as highlighted along Stud River and Map


                                            16.

Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


        D23 (p. 141). The City of Marion looks forward to working with the State
        Government and other partners in implementing this project.

D15.4 Protection and improvement of water quality is important in ensuring reuse
      opportunities can be maximised. As identified in Draft Policy 5, improved
      water management is also critical in maintaining healthy riparian and marine
      environments. Further reference to recommendations arising from the
        Adelaide Coastal Waters Study could be included within this section
        particularly regarding reductions in storrnwater and wastewater discharge and
        the need for consistent management between land, coastal and marine
        systems.

D15.5 Increased urban heat island effects are a likely consequence of climate
      change (Policy D14 and pp. 47, 69, 88, 131). To ensure that the proposed
      greenways are able to mitigate some of the effects of heat islands, careful
      consideration of plant species will need to be made. Although the use of
      drought tolerant species is generally supported, there may be instances
        where it is necessary to use more water intensive landscaping using recycled
        water to assist in reducing heat islands.

D15.6 The proposed stormwater harvesting activities within the Sturt River
        catchment are an important opportunity to create new water supplies to meet
        our increasing water demands as the success of projects such as this are
        dependent on the development of appropriate infrastructure to connect these
        new water sources with end-users. Draft Policy 6 (p. 140), the development of
        storrnwater harvesting schemes, will require further development of
        infrastructure that can transport the new non-potable water supplies to end-
        users. The City of Marion would strongly support the inclusion of a draft policy
        that relates to the development of non-potable water supply infrastructure
        ('purple pipes') especially through transit corridors to supply areas of
        residential densification and greenways (this is different to the requirements in
        Draft Policy 3 (p. 140) that relate specifically to greenfield developments).


CHAPTER E
GOVERNANCE AND IMPLEMENTATION

 E1.1Council recognises the importance of developing a planning system for
        Greater Adelaide that is effective within the broader context of Liveability,
        Competitiveness, and Sustainability and Climate Change Resilience so it
        provides certainty for investors, and in this context the City of Marion is
        looking forward to working in partnership with State Government in the
         implementation of this Plan.

 E1.2    The City of Marion strongly supports the concept of Local Government
         Regional Partnership Forums as a permanent feature in the implementation
         of the Plan. Council believes these are essential to an effective, ongoing
         partnership between State and Local Governments, and other relevant
         agencies,  in the development of both Structure Plans and Precinct
         Requirements to ensure community needs are met and Councils are able to
         implement the Plan within their resources. However, no information has been


                                             17.
City of Marion
Submission on the Draft 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide


       provided of Forum membership and the roles of the various agencies and the
       City of Marion believes there should be dialogue on this as soon as possible.

E1.3   The designation of transit corridors, activity centres, TODs and growth areas
       as State Significant Development indicates the policy development and
       implementation process is centralised within state government. The City of
       Marion      would    support     the         establishment   of   a   Development
       Corporation/Authority that has a place-making approach to oversee the
       development of Structure Plan areas and ensure fair and reasonable market
       value compensation for acquisition of property required, such as the East
       Perth Redevelopment Authority. Also, the roles of Councils and levels of
       community engagement (as discussed in C2 Principles of the Plan) requires
       clarification.

E1.4   The Plan indicates six key planning instruments (p. 152) necessary for the
       Plan's implementation. Council notes that although the Building Code of
       Australia is not considered a 'planning instrument', it is vital this mechanism
       supports sustainable development. Identification and description of how this
       could be achieved could be included as a separate section in Governance
       and Implementation. In the same vein, Design Guidelines are not a 'planning
       instrument', but with their development mentioned in relation to a number of
       policies and targets (pp. 103, 111, 117, 137, 151, 153), consideration could
       be given to their inclusion as a key tool in the Plan's implementation.

E1.5   Council understands that TODs, transit corridors, growth areas and activity
       centres will all be State Significant Development requiring Structure Plans
       and therefore subject to a Ministerial DPA. Clarification is required as to
       whether DPAs for Structure Plan areas are to be Ministerial plans or Council
       plans.

E1.6   With regard to growth areas that are designated State Significant Areas,
       clarification is required as to whether the Governor will determine all
       development applications for these areas. This has potential resourcing
       implications for Councils.

E1.7   Council is supportive of the establishment of the Housing and Employment
       Land Supply Program for Greater Adelaide as a tool for the management of
       land capacity so it is equitably distributed. This is viewed as critical for the
       success of the Plan's implementation. It is noted however, that there is no
       mention of compulsory acquisition of land by the State Government in areas
       such as TOD sites that have few single large scale owners of land.

E1.8   Council is supportive of the Report Card methodology as an effective and
       efficient method to measure regional performance on an annual basis against
       the Plan's objectives, and also the State Government's roles in developing
       and monitoring the Report Card to track any major demographic, economic
       and environmental changes that will signify a need for policy/target
       amendments. Careful consideration will need to be given to how targets with
       qualitative outcomes can be measured.

OTHER

Southern Adelaide Directions

Land for Cemetery Use
With a projected increase in population of 82,000 in the Southern Region the issue of
increasing number of deaths is not addressed in the Plan. As Centennial Park
Cemetery is the main provider of burials, cremation and cremation memorial services
for the southern suburbs, and land at this site is limited, it would indicate the need for
allocation of land for additional cemeteries.

As Map F5 only indicates only one new cemetery site in the Hills Face Zone of the
City of Onkaparinga, Council considers that an additional site needs to be identified
that has easy access by public and private transport and with appropriate
infrastructure such as power and water.

Map F5
Amendments should be made to the Southern Region Directions map to indicate the
location of:
    o Waterways
    o New employment land at the Mitsubishi site.
