We aim to provide and promote a healthy and safe work environment that minimises the risk of injury or illness arising from
work activities.

This data is provided from the Local Government Association Workers Compensation Scheme (the Scheme). This data is
used by the Scheme to calculate the percentage of our salaries and wages payable as workers compensation insurance

The statistics are updated on a monthly basis but the currency/accuracy of data is dependent upon the status of a claim and
the injured employee’s return to work. If an employee is away from work for an extended period of time, their claim
information is not provided until they have returned to work. If a claim is pending, it may be many months before wages are
claimed from the Scheme. This reporting approach is uniform across local government areas in South Australia and in no
way has any adverse effect on our Health & Safety or Injury Management responsibilities or outcomes.

The following table and chart reflect the
number of lost time injuries incurred
(one complete shift or more of lost time).
The target for 2018-2019 is to ensure
the number of lost time injuries is below

The Development Act sets out different
assessment path types for development
applications, including Building Rules
consent only (Development Plan
consent not required), complying,
Residential Development Code
complying, merit and non-complying. In
these reported statistics, we’ve
combined Building Rules consent only
and complying together, and we’ve also
separated land division applications
(which are almost all merit) from
building/land use applications.

approval. These timeframe averages do

Renewal SA has commenced investigations to prepare a structure plan to inform potential rezoning of an approximately 94
hectare site at Aldinga. It is proposed to accommodate a range of residential and other uses, including the development of a
new birth to year 12 school.
Status Update
Council administration continues to work with Renewal SA and the Education Department and their consultant teams to
influence the structure plan and southern school outcomes. This work is broadly informed by the Aldinga Framework Plan
(AFP) which was approved by Council in February 2019, and the Aldinga Sports Park and Southern School Shared Facility
Planning Option, approved by Council in March 2019. Council administration has undertaken an analysis of the two options
which have informed the basis of council’s response (submission) to Renewal SA. Council at the SDC Meeting of 2 July
considered a report on the draft Structure Plan together with a letter to Renewal SA raising a number of matters including the
green triangle, interface, density, traffic and connectivity. A Ministerial DPA is scheduled for consultation in the second half of
2019. Our input will be informed by our work on the AFP and inputs into the draft Structure Plan.

In consultation with asset planners, develop a forward 5 year capital works program reflective of priorities aligned to resource
allocation strategies. Ensure alignment of works spanning multiple categories and engage internal stakeholders at a program
level and well in advance of budgeting to ensure PCW bids are both accurate and achievable from a delivery perspective.
Objective: 2019-20 project scope PM2s completed by end of June 2018, minimum concept design by December 2018 for
budget allocations. 2020-21 scoping complete by June 2019. Five year PCW allocation completed by asset planners by March
Status Update
The infrastructure asset management Project & Capital Works (PCW) program for 2019-20 is 100% scoped and has been
allocated in PCW. The allocated 2019-20 designs were scheduled to have a minimum concept design for all projects by
December 2018, this was achieved. The design program status for 2019-20 currently sits at 90% complete. A substantial effort
has been made to streamline the processes and ensure all aspects of the business are kept informed and involved, which has

The state government is progressing planning for a B-12 school in Aldinga, with capacity for up to approximately 1,700
students. The school is scheduled for opening in readiness for the 2022 school year.
Status Update
Staff have been working with the state government and the three Proponent Teams bidding to design, build and operate the
new school to progress opportunities for shared use of the school facilities. This includes sports facilities (gym, ovals, pitches
and courts) and other specialist facilities. Integration with the Aldinga Sports Park has been a central consideration. There has
also been a focus on ensuring the infrastructure associated with the school (stormwater, road access and car parking) is
appropriately planned and designed to integrate with existing and future networks. A report seeking Council's direction on
shared use facility options and associated funding will be tabled for consideration on 23 July 2019.

The State Government (Renewal SA) is currently undertaking a structure plan process to rezone deferred urban land holdings
in Aldinga. Council’s input into the structure plan process is ongoing and is critical to ensure these initiatives align with Council
and community views on the future of Aldinga.
Status Update
On 2 July 2019 the Strategic Directions Committee approved a letter which forms Council's submission on the draft Structure
Plan. This has been sent to Renewal SA and will inform the finalisation of the structure plan and ongoing discussion with the
state government aimed at influencing the resultant development plan amendment and optimising the design outcomes from
future development. The next stage in the planning process, following the structure plan is the development plan amendment
for the land, which has commenced.

A Strategic Management Plan (SMP) has been approved by Strategic Directions Committee (24/11/15) to guide future public
and private investment in the suburb. Renewal SA has partnered Council in the preparation of this plan. A five year action plan
has been prepared which identifies priority actions that can be acheived in the short term. The SMP has a strong focus on
attracting external funding through state government and private investment. The timing of Council's investment is predicated
on state government funding in the central 'heart' precinct .
Status Update
The City of Onkaparinga has been successful in receiving $1.5M state government grant funding through the Open Space
Places for People Program for the Morton Road reserve upgrade, Christie Downs. The upgrade of Morton Road Reserve into
a central park is identified as a key action in the 20 Year Christie Downs Strategic Management Plan(SMP) under the
objective ‘create a vibrant heart of Christie Downs’. In 2017 council was approached by the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation
(RRSF) expressing interest in a partnership opportunity in the City of Onkaparinga to provide children in disadvantaged
communities access to diverse sports facilities as well as ongoing sports programs and mentors. A $5M vision for a sport and
community hub was developed by the RRSF which responds to the objectives of both Council’s SMP and the RRSF. This
grant funding will enable delivery of a $3M upgrade of this reserve. This will focus on priority open space facilities including a
skate park, hard and soft surface activity spaces, shelters and seating, landscaping, pedestrian links, BBQ facilities, an
adventure play space, public amenities and stormwater management. The final scope will be dependent on the final design
and associated costings. Whilst this can be delivered as a standalone project there are ongoing discussions with the RRSF
about the possibility of additional, external support to allow expansion of this scope, in line with the greater vision for this

The project involves the infrastructure upgrades (roads, footpaths, stormwater, lighting and streetscapes) of areas of Aldinga
Beach, Port Willunga and Sellicks Beach. The initial stages of the project will involve a review of the existing assets against
the current service levels, examining the triggers and prioritisation of works and developing concepts for consultation with the
community. Further stages will include the detail design and implementation of the agreed works.
Status Update
Initial project planning is underway to map the process to be undertaken on the project. This includes consideration of the
risks and opportunities including looking at service levels, information gaps and engagement strategies. Work on the priority
area (Aldinga Beach) is underway including technical investigations to determine suitable design outcomes that can be
presented to the community for feedback. It is proposed to brief Elected Members on this project in the latter part of 2019.

As part of the rezoning of an area of land in Hackham and Onkaparinga Hills in 2015, landowners that wish to develop are
required to enter into an infrastructure agreement with council to contribute to the upgrade of roads, stormwater and lighting.
This project encompasses the infrastructure works that council is required to construct under these agreements.
Status Update
Development activity continues to increase in the Hackham South East project area with four significant residential
developments now underway and a number of smaller land divisions also occurring. This development necessitates council
carrying out work under the Infrastructure Contribution Agreements. Where possible the design of the streetscape works are
being coordinated with the design of the adjacent private developments. The Penneys Rise Stage 1 road reconstruction
commenced in June 2019 . The design of Sturt Lane road reconstruction is being finalised, with works expected to commence
later this financial year. Design work is being finalised on Gates and Hepenstal road reconstruction. Drainage works along the
northern section of Gates Roads (to accommodate the upstream development) has commenced.

A grant submission was again submitted for 50% of the cost to rebuild the 3 courts with Council funding budgeted in 2018-19.
Allowances have been made within the 2019-20 budget for the total renewal cost given the condition of the 3 courts are
becoming very poor and may affect use.

We expect to hear whether the latest grant bid was successful in August 2019.

In September 2017, we were notified that our submission to renew the Meyer Road bridge in Lonsdale was successful with an
Offer of Funding being approved by Council on 17 October 2017. A further funding deed was presented to Council to formalise
the funding arrangements with DPTI 21 August 2018, who will administer the payments. This funding deed has been signed
and approved. Since then, further negotiations with DPTI were progressed, whereby a final agreement has been established
for them to deliver the bridge project; given the complexity, and risk presented from constructing in an electrified rail corridor.
This delivery agreement has been finalised. DPTI are now moving forward with the procurement phase of the project.
Status Update
The Project Delivery Agreement has been signed with DPTI and outlines provisions for them to deliver the project on behalf of
Council. DPTI are procuring the project via their existing Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTPA). The PTPA is currently
delivering the Oaklands Road railway overpass among other projects. The PTPA is currently reviewing the design documents
and preparing an updated Total Outturn Cost statement for the project. This TOC statement is due end of June, with
construction likely to commence in late 2019 / early 2020.

As a step to delivering on the aspirations of the Noarlunga Regional Centre revitalisation project, whilst also improving the
function and amenity of the area, upgrades to key streetscapes and gateways within the Centre commenced in 2017.
Additional funding has been made available in 2018-19 to develop detailed designs for additional sections of the streetscape
in the centre and in 2019-20 for the construction.
A priority for this stage is to extend the Bush to Beach landscape theme along Beach Road from Burgess Drive to McKinna
Key features include the following:
• Urban ‘vineyard’ feature with vine-like (not grapevine) plantings
• Planted earth mounds which complement the mound further along Beach Road
• Norfolk Island Pine trees along the northern side of Beach Road adjacent the shared use path
• Screening/softening of existing informal car parks with garden beds.

The Sturt River Linear Park is a key component of Adelaide’s Metropolitan Open Space System (MOSS) providing a strategic
link in the open space network from the Adelaide Hills to the coast. This project involves the concept and detailed design of
stage three of the Sturt River Linear Park, from the Institute Building on Main Road to Horner’s Bridge in Coromandel Valley.
The project has both landscape and civil works. Landscape works include removal of woody weeds and revegetation with
local native and ornamental plants to improve amenity and water quality.

The civil works includes a sealed shared use trail for pedestrians and cyclists, balustrade and fencing for user safety,
replacement of an existing bridge and installation of new pedestrian bridges.

works, also subject to matching funds being obtained. A submission for state government funding was submitted in February
2019 to fund 50% of the project cost. In late June 2019 we were informed that the application was unsuccessful. Feedback is
being sought from the state government with respect to this decision. The Federal Labor election funding pledge of $2.7M
toward the project, subject to matching Council funding, has not forthcoming due to the election result. We will continue to
advocate for the funding of this project to both the state and federal governments.
