Community engagement lacking in plans for South Road upgrade

The Community Alliance SA has made a submission on the lack of publicly available information and inadequate community engagement in the planning process for the proposed upgrade of South Road ( Torrens Road to River Torrens) as part of the North South Corridor project.

“The overall view of the Community Alliance is that public consultation is occurring too late in the planning process with the public excluded from considering vital information and not being consulted on other options.  This leaves community members with little faith that their views will change anything but minor details.  This is a major flaw throughout Adelaide’s planning system, which is currently dominated by politics and engineering needs with little consideration given to the social, environmental and economic implications.  This is not planning for the people of Adelaide.”
