The 28 February submission deadline for the draft Planning and Design Code is fast approaching, and we are very pleased to attach the draft CASA submission that Dr Iris Iwanicki has drafted on behalf of members.
Thanks to those who attended our submission workshop at our last general meeting. This feedback was very helpful and most of it has been included in the submission. If you have any questions or further feedback, feel free to contact Dr Iris on 0438 535 058 by Tuesday 25 February.
Don’t forget to lodge your own submissions on the draft Code. You can provide submissions on behalf of your organisation as well as personal submissions. Marion has launched an excellent campaign “Not in Our Streets”, and Burnside provided examples of submissions on their website, as well as some useful information on how the Code will affect various residential zones.

By this time your local council has probably drafted a submission and if you go to their website you may find it. To find your council’s website go to https://www.lga.sa.gov.au/councils. To learn more about how the Code may affect our suburbs, read Mayor Robert Bria’s deputation to Parliament’s Environment and Resources Committee which is also attached.
