The Yorke Peninsula Council is undertaking a review of zoning of land at Black Point and Pine Point.
The pending introduction of a new Planning System for South Australia is intended to be implemented across Regional Councils by late 2019. This will involve the conversion of the present Council Development Plan to the new format, Planning and Design Code; which will include a comprehensive set of planning rules for development assessment purposes classified into zones, subzones and overlays.
The proposed new system will be very different to the Development Plan provisions now in place, with a series of prescriptive guidelines against which new development will be assessed.
It is likely that the new system will incorporate some planning policies from the current Development Plan, particularly those provisions now applicable to the Settlement Zone and Black Point Policy Area, but is nonetheless intended to be simplified, particularly through a reduction in the number of separate Zones and Policy Areas.
Hence it is timely that the relevance of the Development Plan policies for Black Point and Pine Point be reviewed.
The review will involve more than just a review of the relevant Development Plan provisions but will also include consideration of issues arising from sea level rise and coastal erosion, the need for future protection measures and maintenance of the beach, together with a review of the Crown lease shack sites in the Urban Coastal Zone fronting Black Point.
The Council is keen to hear from anyone with particular concerns or views on how development at Black Point and Pine Point can be managed and if any matters need to be taken into consideration.
Public Consultation will commence 1 May and conclude 30 June 2019 at 5pm.
