PROSPECT RESIDENTS LIVING IN A RESIDENTIAL 350 ZONE NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT SA GOV. NEW PLANNING.
Under the SA Government’s draft Planning and design Code currently out for consultation until 28th February all Prospect 350 zones are down to be transferred into a General Neighbourhood Zone. This means houses in these zones could be demolished and row developments such as those in the photos with a floor space of 200squ m could be built on a block. This could be built next to you. In our opinion this will greatly change the character of Prospect as well as create congestion, parking problems, loss of trees, overlooking and privacy issues etc in many of Prospects narrow streets. In contrast this cannot happen in new Suburban Neighbourhood Zones. Prospects 560 and 450 zones are down to become Suburban Neighbourhood Zones
If you have concerns about this we urge you to put in a submission by 28th February asking that Prospect’s 350 zones be also made Suburban Neighbourhood Zones which will not allow this to happen.
Following documents attached below:
1. Maps showing where the 350 zones are. Check what your zone is if you are not sure.
2. More detailed information about the changes in the Code to the Prospect Development Plan and to the other zones.
3. A sample submission for residents in a 350 zone which you can use to develop your submission.
4. A sample submission for residents not in a 350 zone but who want to voice concerns (general submission).

Protect our Contributory Items Campaign -letter-writing campaign
Prospect Residents Association has concerns about the heritage system under the new Planning and Design code due to be implemented in 2020. We are concerned that the current protection for these houses in Contributory Zones will be lost in the new system. We need to keep the current protection from demolition for these buildings.
Contributory items are critical to maintaining street character. There are 121 in Prospect. Prospect has 7 Historic conservation zones: - Fitzroy Tce, Clifton Street, Martin Avenue, Whinham Street, Little Adelaide (Carter Street and Highbury St), Flora Tce and Medindie Gardens.
There is a current letter writing campaign aimed to bring people back into the planning system by writing individual letters to our local MPs and the Minister for Planning and all politicians about our concerns. For City of Prospect area, lobby these people: Rachel Sanderson, Stephan Knoll, David Spiers, Steven Marshall, Tony Piccolo, Peter Malinauskas and Michael Lennon.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS INFORMATION TO YOUR CONTACTS AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
