Proposed playground upgrades
Status: No proposed playgrounds currently open for feedback
Throughout the year, various reserves are scheduled for exciting facelifts and we want your help in deciding what structures would best suit the local community's needs.
It would be great if you could spare a few minutes to answer the relevant survey for your local reserve and help us understand how the playground is used and what you would like to see included in the new designs.

Value of heritage and character in West Torrens
Consultation period: August - September 2019
The State Planning Commission is leading the Planning and Development Reform, which will change the way developments are assessed and approved in the future. It may also mean that some of the heritage and character items that contribute to the livability and charm of West Torrens may not be protected.
Due to the significant community interest in heritage and character across West Torrens, we consulted the community on what mattered to them in regards to the topic. While feedback may not directly impact the new planning system, it has enabled us to provide informed feedback when responding to the State Government in relation to the proposed Planning and Development reform.
