Dear DPTI,

As a practising landscape architect and architect, and resident who has resided along on the coastal front at West Lakes Shore for 28 years, it’s great to finally see the vision of Adelaide’s coast park soon to be complete. The propose has no real consideration for the rest of the community who have resided along this stretch of coastal front since 1978, however, yes, every South Australian has the right to enjoy the beauty and recreational aspects of the metropolitan coastline.

I am concerned about the lack of design consideration which comes with designing a ‘shard path.’ In the artistic imagery DPTI have provided, it appears to be nonexistent. A multi million-dollar asset should not be boring, yet as we know typical South Australian infrastructural projects are executed on a shoestring budgets and sometimes appear to have little vision as a long-term assets to the community and state of South Australia. Contrary to the imagery forwarded from DPTI, the stretch just completed in front of Minda (known Minda Coast Park) holds a credible level of detail and design, will age well and is an actual asset for the state. This project was funded by the council of Holdfast bay – the City of Charles Sturt and SA Government have no reason to deliver anything less than this.

The minimum design considerations are as follows and need to be implemented to soften the impact and brutality of a concrete slab both for the benefit of users and neighbouring residents. (applies not only from Tennyson Dunes to 3rd avenue, but for all subsequent developments of the coast park)
- Incorporate 2 subtle colours of concrete to slow cyclists and visually break the banal nature of a shared concrete path. Maybe incorporate discrete patterning for interest? http://www.oxigen.net.au/projects/minda-coast-park
- Utilise slip resistant washed aggregate concrete finishes, opposed to broom finished concrete.
- Replace the post fencing on the beach side of the proposed shared path to match the recently completed path sections at Minda (hardwood post and wire) http://www.oxigen.net.au/projects/minda-coast-park
- Incorporate flush stone cobble inlays within the concrete path (Basket Range varieties or similar) to slow cyclists along straight lengths. The shared path needs to be directed at families and slow cycling. As a road cyclist myself, I will continue to utilize Military Road, to ride alone or within a peleton. The proposed shared path has the potential to becomes a huge safety risk if promoted to lycra clad weekend warriors and speed cycling. The areas through Tennyson dunes in the south will need to integrate a meandering path alignment and layout which will deter high speed cyclists, and protect heritage primary and secondary dune systems.
- Reinstate native dune plantings within the 0.5m gap nominated between the proposed path and fence location.

I believe the remaining development of the coast park, if taken seriously, can only add value to neighbouring properties, clean up and remove introduced residents plantings which have contributed to weed issues along these areas, improve tourism (both national and maybe international) and give more opportunities for the community to be even more physically active. This project does run the risk of becoming another slab of concrete, like every other path, and requires serious design decisions to make it a lifelong asset. Please contact me for any further advice. meyed01@yahoo.com

I support the coastal pathway North from the Tennyson Dunes to Third Avenue at Semaphore Park. This short 1.4 km section should have been the easiest to complete in the 28-year history of the Coastal Park as it is in a cleared stretch of lawn of variable quality that is around 10 metres wide. What could be easier and less environmentally troubling than to put in a pathway on a wide lawn over a short distance? Sadly I think a misplaced self interest has been strongly evident and successful in blocking this great initiative for the long duration of this project.

Some have proposed a 2m `natural path’, however it will not be sufficiently wide or durable enough for prams, wheelchairs and even bikes. The Tennyson dunes natural path is already deteriorating and not really suitable for anyone but able-bodied walkers.

Our coast is owned by all of us and I look forward to the Pathway being finished. I am troubled that some think the lawn, dunes and beach in front of their houses and units are for their exclusive use. This may explain why there is a boom gate on public land at the northern end of the area at Third Avenue Semaphore Park which can be closed at will.

I have noticed that every section of the Coastal Pathway with the honourable exception of the dunes at Minda has been strongly opposed by a minority of locals, but once completed each has been a great success. I think this section will actually increase land values rather than decrease them.

Hi DPTI team, thankyou for providing the opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed next stage of Coast Park. I am a local resident and regular user of the coast park area, as a former Henley Beach resident and now West Lakes resident. I strongly support the further development of the coast park along these new routes. We have walked these sections and they are currently difficult to navigate because of the lack of a clearly defined path, and don't allow for cycle access which I would very much like to have for bike rides with my son (preferring to keep him away from the traffic of Military Rd- where the serious and speedy cyclists already go by choice in the already constructed parts of coast park). I also believe that the clear delineation of the path will provide protection to the important dune system by limiting people walking to the defined path (as opposed to on multiple pathways of their own creation). The area is public land and therefore should be accessible for public enjoyment, not considered as an extension of the adjacent private land, which is what appears to be occurring along several sections of the current pathway. I recognize that this is a concern for some adjacent landowners, but I believe that if you are going to live adjacent to public land you need to accept that the public will use it (that is what it is for) - the path does not look like it will impact on views at all (in fact it will probably improve some ofthem). I live lake front on West Lakes and regularly have people using the lake pathway immediately in front of my house - to me that is what I accept by living where I do, and I believe the same applies to the coast. It's great to have the community also enjoying the public assets we have in our area as much as I do. I look forward to seeing the next stage of Coast Park completed. Cheers Hannah

There seems to be a divide between users. The elderly, disabled , dog walkers and the young want to be able to enjoy nature sighting the birds and the lizards and all the coastal plants and flowers along the foreshore which are unique to this area. So a low impact meandering path through the dunes similar to the discovery trail already in place should continue both north and south of the reserve. I am both a cyclist and walker and I am frustrated on a dual purpose path.. Cyclists are being impeded by walkers not hearing bells and walkers are getting clipped by cyclists not taking due care. Cyclists should be protected from cars and pedestrians and should have their own path. I believe a designated path separated from the road along Military RD to Ft Glanville reserve would be a solution I as a cyclist would be happy with. One solution doesn't fit all situations along the coastline as can be seen along many stretches from Hallett Cove to Pt Adelaide. The Tennyson Dunes is a unique eco-system in Adelaide which should be respected.

I love this area and come from far for the pleasure of walking in a still untouched part of the foreshore. Yes, access is not that easy, but this means few people and a very special place, still ecologically preserved. I understand why people would like a path, but PLEASE do not destroy this area like it was done on most of the suburban foreshore! Do not concrete, and try to limit the speed of bikes! Children are walking and playing there, and it is great not to have to worry about them being run over by a speeding bike!

Please stop concreting the world! This path would have been done a long time ago if the council had accepted an eco-friendly option. A concrete path is not an answer to erosion and will be a disaster - aesthetically and environmentaly Please respect our environment and continue the Tennyson dunes path for the benefit of all the users.

The proposed development is in my local area and I am a regular walker along the path from Semaphore to Grange. The upgrade of the trail would greatly improve the amenity and Improve access to the coast for both pedestrians and cyclists. I regularly cycle from Semaphore to Outer Harbour. Cycling south from Semaphore requires riding along Military Road, where traffic and cars parked on the roadside create hazards for cyclists. I am strongly supportive of this project and can see the obvious and numerous benefits for the community as a whole.

Has anyone consulted with the home owners that are on the other you are considering building? This will devalue our land having a bike path less then 3m from our front doors! Not to mention become a safety hazard with people walking and cycling past all the time. This has already been defeated in court at the tax payers expense as it will destroy the sand dunes! There is already designated access points to the beach dotted along the coast there isn I need to destroy sand dunes and devalue peoples houses for the sake of a footpath it’s unconstitutional that people that have worked hard their whole lives to live beachfront will have the peace and tranquility destroyed. I am deeply disappointed in the state government for even proposing destroying land values of hard working people in a time when the economy is already suffering. Mr Knoll get in touch with the peoples land value you are about to tank do you your job and consult with the people who’s votes you rely on for your public servants salary and future pension! You’ve lost touch with the real world

> This will devalue our land

And it also will vastly increase the public value of that is currently being held by a select greedy few.

Property is an investment, your financial pain or gain pales in comparison to the health and economic outcomes for the other 99.9% of the population that will use this infrastructure.

Rhys Daniel > Rhys Daniel

05 Jun 2020

I wonder if you would be so accomodating if it was devaluing the value of your property? Or so willing for it to happen?
Could you please explain what benefit the economy will get out of using the said infrastructure? And the health of the people? Have you consider the health of the environment by destroying the sand dunes?
A greedy few? It’s a free economy if you wish to live beachfront you must pay I don’t see how that’s greedy? Now you are taxing people because they work hard and can afford nice things?

What part of "This path will be built on government owned land" don't you understand? Since you bought your property, nothing has changed in this regard. It will still be built on government owned land.

In line with other comments here, I do not believe It will in any way de-value any property. People pay for the view, not necessarily exclusive private access of a beach they know they shouldn't have a right to have exclusive access to, along a metropolitan coastline.

It hasn't affected property values in any of the southern suburbs like Glenelg, Brighton, Somerton, Seacliff, etc. All it will do is grant access to the coast that ALL people have a right to enjoy, not just a select rich few.

Long overdue project for the whole of South Australia to enjoy. A priority for recreational cyclists to safely ride along the coast. Families with children will see this as an extremely important connection between Semaphore and Grange. I can understand the residents along this path are disappointed at the impact this will have on there lives. With best practice environmental construction and planting this will enhance the current area and increase the value of the area. If we can focus on community and shared use rather than entitlement and rights this will become a path for all to enjoy. Who knows maybe the residents along the path might meet some new people and make new friends if they focus on the benefits of (shared use) of what is essentially council land for all to enjoy.

The proposed design for Stage 1 (North) of linear park from Grange to Semaphore is a fantastic and long overdue project. I use various parts of the coast park trail on a regular basis, including those parts covered by this proposal, and I can hardly wait. I have previously provided feedback to the City of Charles Sturt on this proposal and I can't really understand what the hold up is. Please, please complete this as quickly as possible, so we can all this wonderful coastline of ours.

This sounds like a wonderful opportunity especially following the upsurge in walking and cycling recently. It is so heartwarming seeing so many families and older people out cycling around the city and beaches. This will also open up suburbs to more people and tourists. I am a cyclist who was hit by a car. I'm petrified to cycle on the road now but it is possible to cycle 50km+ just on bike paths in Adelaide. This will open up even more kms to cycle safely. I agree with other comments on here to make it wide enough for both pedestrians and cyclists or segregated. Everyone wants to enjoy their time out walking or riding without feeling like their getting in each others way or unsafe.

I like the idea. I think it is long overdue. Aesthetically, I am not attracted to a concrete path. Is there a softer and cooler alternative, like that recycled plastic or rubber "bitumen' that is being trialled on some roads?
I think the pathway should perhaps separate pedestrians from cyclists, as some cyclists are apt to go too fast.
I want the pathway to go ALL the way through to Grange. I think the residents of Adelaide have been held hostage by some well-heeled,
privileged residents of Tennyson, who have previously shown tendencies to encroach their private gardens and lawns onto PUBLIC land.

I am all for a path but it will have to be made of compacted limestone rubble to get my vote:

As a citizen, I have environmental concerns: This proposed concrete path, if it was built, will negatively impact the current natural geomorphological process and the fauna/flora complex system. Dunes are not static, a path made of concrete will create, in the long term, important ecological and economical issues that are not being acknowledged by people lacking coastal management education.

As a cyclist: I much prefer to have an eco- friendly path made of compacted limestone rubble near sandy areas because the sand on a concrete path (that will be inevitable) makes the path become slippery and pauses a real hazard. A consolidated limestone rubble path (like what has been built in the Tennyson dunes) is firm, even, relatively smooth but slip-resistant and will suit cyclists and other wheel users (including prams, wheelchairs with appropriate tyres, wheeled toys, etc).

I was shocked to hear that the council doesn't want an eco-friendly path because they will have to maintain and it might create work! First, a concrete path near a sandy place will need a lot of maintenance to keep it safe anyway. Second, creating jobs is not a bad thing! I am all for environmental justice and social justice!
Please build us an eco-friendly path so we can all enjoy it while respecting our environment.

I was totally opposed to the construction of a path through the dunes at Largs Bay commenced in 2001. I feared destruction of vegetation and the degradation of the fragile and unique eco-structure of the dunes.

I was wrong.

Having walked, done volunteer weeding and taken my granddaughter cycling on the completed path, I have come to value the contribution that the path has made to the heritage of these dunes that stretch from Grange to North Haven.
A path will reinforce the diversity of the area, while enabling present and future generations to appreciate and value this unique coastal area.

Yes Yes Yes. I'm a regular walker & cyclist in the western suburbs and thoroughly enjoy the path from Outer Harbour to Seacliff - except the section from Grange to Semaphore. It's impossible to ride on and quite difficult to walk through. All other councils have done their part. It's time for Charles Sturt Council to take on the self interested, entitled beach front landowners to get this path complete for the whole community to enjoy. Obviously, care needs to be taken to protect the natural dunes at Tennyson, but surely both objectives can be achieved with good and creative planning. It's been talked about for years - time to get it done.

The dunes at Tennyson are no different to any other metropolitan dunes that already have the path through them. That misinformation about the Tennyson dunes being somehow different to any others is just propaganda and desperation on the part of those who will say anything to block the development.

Leave this area as it is OR provide an eco-friendly solution. Bikes, prams, wheelchairs etc can all access and move along this area as it is. No one is against people accessing this area just make it a better, smarter option than the proposed 3+m cement path.

Military Road is a dangerous and unnecessary detour for cyclists such as myself. An unimpeded path along the coast away from traffic is the safest way to go. And having a shared use pathway the whole way along the coast will be a great asset to our state. I cannot wait till it's complete.
