Unley Central moving forward Council wants to make Unley a smart city which is highly accessible and inclusive, promotes innovation and provides oppor tunities for connection, inclusion and par ticipation. After extensive community consultation, the Unley Central project is moving forward. An intensive hands-on workshop was held in April where selected representatives of the interest groups involved with the precinct assessed the range of options and refined the best concepts for the plan. The Development Strategy and Policy Committee and Council will now review the options with the aim of finalising planning policy proposals and a draft Development Plan Amendment is expected in the coming months. The draft Development Plan Amendment will then be open to ex tensive stakeholder and public consultation, when community input will again be valued. Once community views are incorporated and the Amendment is completed, it will be sent to the State Government for approval.

The project will run all year and will change based on significant dates and events such as ANZAC Day, Mother’s Day, and the SALA festival. To acknowledge ANZAC Day, artist John Denlay installed a vibrant homage to ANZAC veterans on the Goodwood Primary School fence, made completely out of poppies. Lieu Elder from Pret ty Petals on Goodwood Road is thrilled about the art. “ T he artwork is bringing people to the street,” L ieu says. “It’s great for people to see something different. The best part is that people who visit stores on Goodwood Road can contribute and place their own poppies in the fence.” Customers who visited Pret ty Petals and other stores on the road during April and May could leave with a poppy to decorate the fence and celebrate the ANZAC spirit. The Goodwood Road upgrades are collaboration between the State Government and Council, with upgrades such as undergrounding power lines, widening the pavement, adding more greenery and incorporating more ar t into the streetscape.
