Urban Corridor policies need to ensure maximum building heights of not more than 2x storeys where they directly abut Residential Neighbourhood Zones and Representative Buildings

Can someone point to a definition of "storey" in terms of metres !!

Hello Peter, thank you for your interest in the revised draft Planning and Design Code (the Code).

Definitions of the terms used in the Code can be found in Part 8 - Administrative Terms and Definitions.

Please note there is no definition for ‘storey’ in the Code as ‘building height' and 'building level’ are the terms used.

Building height is addressed in the Code under each zone as it needs to be adapted to local circumstances and the development activities intended for that specific zone.

For example, the building height in metres for a house may not be appropriate for commercial (e.g. shops) and/or recreational uses (e.g.: library, community hall or an indoor recreation centre).

The code hardly provides any protections what so ever for Aboriginal Heritage.
FIX IT PLEASE.

Hi Alayna,

Thank you for your interest in the revised Planning and Design Code.

Aboriginal Heritage is currently managed via a separate legislative framework under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988, and details are recorded on the Register of Aboriginal Sites and Objects. Information about Aboriginal heritage can be highly sensitive, and for cultural reasons, is often kept confidential.

As such, significant consultation and negotiations with key stakeholders would need to be undertaken and agreements reached before consideration could be given to reflecting it in the Code.

Thanks,
Planning Reform Team

The plan should ensure that child care centres are built in good places for children like schools. It is crazy how many child care centres are built on main roads that are noisy dangerous and busy. All child care centres should have to pass a test as to whether they are suitable places for children. Councils don't check if they are too noisy or dangerous first. There must be someone looking out for kids instead of letting developers decide where they can make a dollar. Please add something to the plan that makes sure an child-focused expert reviews locations first.

Dear Jodie, thank you for your query regarding child care centres in the revised Planning and Design Code (the Code).

The Code includes a number of policies that consider how child care centres are designed and where they are located to protect children, staff and parents from the impacts of adjoining land uses (such as noise).

In addition, the Code provides policies that safely integrate these centres with surrounding transport systems such as main roads, vehicle and pedestrian access, access for people with disabilities and parking areas.

Kind Regards,
Planning Reform Team

Can you please ensure productive farmland is protected in the Adelaide Hills particularly Hahndorf. The entrances to township are not protected by Heritage. The open areas on the approach to Hahndorf need to be protected and increased.The protection area should be increased to maintain the entrances to township.

Dear Jodie, thank you for your query regarding the protection of productive farmland in the Adelaide Hills.

Within the revised Planning and Design Code, areas surrounding the Hahndorf township will be included in the Adelaide Country Zone.

This zone includes a number of policies that will ensure development minimises the potential loss of land available for primary production, as well as guide the location and scale of development to maintain the natural and rural character of the area.

Kind Regards,
Planning Reform Team
