Following is an update on the Unley Central DPA process from the City of Unley.

Dear respondent to the public consultation process,

The Unley Central DPA process is nearing its anticipated conclusion, so this letter is to provide an update on the status and remaining opportunities for you to attend meetings where this DPA will be discussed by Council.

The City Strategy and Development Policy Committee (CSDP) of Council and Council have received all respondents’ feedback, and will be further considering this at meetings in March. There was a significant number of respondents and a wide variation of views, so it is taking some time to compile the necessary reports for Council and Committee to consider. To assist in this process, there will be a further briefing of the CSDP Committee and Council Members on 6 March at 6.30 pm in the Unley Civic Centre. While the meeting gallery will be open to the public, there will be no public presentations or representations at this meeting.

This briefing will be the last opportunity for CSDP Committee members to clarify matters pertaining to the policy under consideration before their next meeting (also open to the public) on 14 March at 7.00pm, where the Committee will make recommendations to Council regarding the DPA.

The March Council meeting on 27 March will then consider the Committee’s recommendations and make a recommendation to the Planning Minister regarding the DPA.

Council has reached the end of the time available to it to prepare the Draft DPA for the Minister. If for some reason Council is unable to make a recommendation to the Minister at the March Council meeting, it will need to seek an extension of time from the Minister. The Minister may approve such a request, or may follow alternate paths with the DPA.

Council will further correspond with you after the March Council meeting, to update you on the DPA’s progress.
