Services we offer
Marion Council is campaigning for a rewrite of the latest version of the State Government’s new planning laws that threaten to make our streets north of Seacombe Road hotter, noisier, and more congested.
Additionally, we want to see the laws amended to unleash the economic potential of Marion Road, and create jobs.
Council has conducted extensive consultation to ensure its Housing Diversity Development Plan Amendment (DPA) reflected the wishes of the community – the draft Code places most of the approved changes in jeopardy.
Council is continuing to advocate for our community by seeking amendments to the draft Code.
Council made a formal submission to State Government in February this year to maintain minimum block sizes and frontages in the north of our city. This was backed by more than 680 submissions from the community.
If you are concerned about the impacts of the Draft Planning and Design Code in the City of Marion, you can simply download and complete the letter template and email the State Planning Commission by 18 December 2020.
The Draft Planning and Design Code can be viewed on the PlanSA website.
