The City of Salisbury has developed a road map for creating a major activity centre that is an exciting and vibrant place where people live, work, shop and visit. This road map, or plan, also identifies key actions to trigger redevelopment and stimulate investment.
Based on the 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide and Salisbury Council’s City Plan ‘Sustainable Futures’, the Salisbury City Centre will become one of Greater Adelaide’s Transit Oriented Developments (TODs), where housing, jobs, shopping, services and transport all come together in one compact location.
Salisbury’s prosperity and progress have always been underpinned by strong community support and a shared vision. Moving forward, the Council has continued to embrace this proven formula by developing the Salisbury City Centre Renewal Strategy and Structure Plan in partnership with community stakeholders, to ensure the results reflect the needs and aspirations of its customers and residents. Key features of the Structure Plan include;
- improved pedestrian movement within and around the Salisbury City Centre
- significant changes to the road network to facilitate better traffic movement into and around the Centre
- an improved parking strategy
- simplification of bus movements and strong linkages between the Centre and an upgraded transport interchange
- creation of green spaces with the City Centre
- creation of active frontages along Church Street and John Street
- providing active frontages to the Civic Square and softened landscaping to promote use
- increasing residential, commercial and retail densities providing opportunities to establish residential and mixed-use developments to increase the permanent resident population with the Centre
