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.

the application seeks Development Plan
consent, Building Rules consent, Land
Division consent and/or development
approval. These timeframe averages do
not include requests for further
information or referrals to state
government agencies.

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. The Aldinga Deferred Urban Land Planning Scenario is based on information provided within
the Preliminary Structure Plan options, current planning provisions for Aldinga, and the residential yield target of up to 1000
dwellings that Renewal SA have used to develop the Structure Plan options. This target has been informed by the Holmes
Dyer Aldinga Structure Plan and Housing Analysis Report (16 Jan 2019).

Status Update
We wrote to the Clarendon community on 14 February 2019 to provide an update on the project after finalising the Community
Feedback report based on the community survey in which 64 responses were received. The report also included the
outcomes of the technical planning session held with interested community members. The Community Feedback report was
adopted by the Strategic Directions Committee at its meeting on 5 February 2019.

Our next steps will be largely determined by the state government’s planning reforms currently implementing significant
changes to South Australia's planning system through the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016. Community
Feedback from the engagement process has helped distil community aspirations for the initial transition to the Planning and
Design Code (the Code). The new system will involve the introduction of the Code, which will consolidate all of South
Australian council’s 72 development plans into one set of state-wide planning rules. Throughout the planning reforms we are
working with our Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) transition manager to discuss our options and
opportunities. However, until the draft Code is released for consultation we are unable to predetermine what zoning / planning
policy options will be available to apply. Nonetheless, we will continue to advocate on behalf of our community to implement
the recommended changes that have been identified through the community workshops and surveys. A third community
meeting will be scheduled upon release of the draft Code for community consultation, to assist council in preparing its
submission to the state-government. This is likely to occur in late-2019.

collaborating with Regional Development Australia Barossa and Global Food Studies at the University of Adelaide. The bid
seeks to encourage the identification, protection, preservation and promotion of cultural and natural heritage around the world
that is considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. It is anticipated that World Heritage listing will lead to significant
economic benefits through increased tourism, global branding and export opportunities.

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 91% complete and on track for 100% at June 2019.
A substantial effort has been made to streamline the processes and ensure all aspects of the business are kept informed and
involved, which has resulted in efficient delivery of the program and high quality projects.

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
The Department of Education has completed preliminary site investigations and initial engagement with council administration
and leadership. Council has utilised the Aldinga Framework Plan to inform the Department of key issues and opportunities. A
set of local design and character guidelines for the development has been developed by council, and will be included in the
project brief documentation. The next stage of the project, the Request for Proposal (RFP) commenced on 23 April 2019.
Three (3) Proponent Teams have been invited to participate in this stage. Each team will develop a design for the school,
inclusive of all feasibility/financial modelling for the PPP contract period (30 years). As per Council's endorsed
recommendation (Aldinga Southern School Report 19 March 2019), council administration will engage with each Proponent to
advocate for shared use of the school facilities by the community, including sports facilities, and other specialist facilities being
provided by the school.

State Government is progressing planning for a B-12 school in Aldinga and Structure Plan for Deferred Urban land holdings
south of Aldinga township.
Status Update
On 19 February 2019 Council endorsed the Aldinga Framework Plan which was developed to support and influence the state
led Structure Plan and Southern School projects. The AFP brings together known information, issues and opportunities for
Aldinga. It also incorporates key issues and opportunities raised by the community.

Community engagement (led by Renewal SA) on the Preliminary Structure Plan options concluded on 7 April 2019. On 2 April
2019 Council endorsed a letter to be issued to Renewal SA in response, including Council’s Planning Scenario which
investigates anticipated land use, open space quantity and distribution, and housing density. As part of its submission,
Council will request that the ‘triangle’ land parcel (north of Quinliven Road) be retained as open space.

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.

In response to existing flooding issues affecting the John Nicholl Reserve in Aldinga Beach, Council is constructing two
stormwater detention basins at the western side of the reserve and an underground outfall pipe system along Thomas Street
to connect into the existing piped system which discharges water to the Gulf St Vincent via a rock lined outlet structure.
Status Update
Construction works commenced in mid February 2019 and the downstream stormwater pipework along Thomas Street is
complete. Excavation works for the northern basin in John Nicholl Reserve commenced in mid March 2019. Construction
works are scheduled to be completed by the end of June 2019.

This project is jointly funded by City of Onkaparinga and the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources

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. A contract for the construction of Penneys Rise has
been let and works are now expected to commence in May 2019 after being delayed by the developer works not commencing.
Works on Sturt Lane will also be carried out in coordination with the works of the adjacent private developer, which are now
expected to commence next financial year. Design work is progressing on Gates and Hepenstal Roads following the approval
of a significant development fronting both of these roads. Drainage works along the northern section of Gates Roads (to
accommodate the upstream development) is scheduled to commence in July 2019.

The relocation of the two netball / tennis courts (adjacent the tennis/ netball clubroom facility) was identified in the plan as a
priority due to the poor condition of the existing courts which is resulting in significant funds being spent annually to repair the
courts. The existing courts have also reached the end of their lifespan
Status Update
Construction of the courts was competed and handed over on 17 April 2019. We are currently discussing the removal f the old
courts and associated infrastructure with Kangarilla Recreation ground Committee.

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. Extensive negotiations with DPTI have 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
agreement is 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. Construction is likely to commence in late 2019.

A $5m vision for a sport and community hub was developed by the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation (RRSF) which
responds to the objectives of the Christie Downs 20 Year Strategic Management Plan. The vision includes a junior sized oval,
four shared use basketball/netball/tennis courts, running track, internal path network, picnic and barbeque facilities, play space
and skate park. Council has identified $1.5million in its long term financial plan towards this upgrade, and will proceed with
detailed design and construction subject to receiving matching funding from the state government.
Status Update
A submission for $1.5m in funding was submitted in the latest round of DPTI’s open space grants which closed on 8 February
2019. We expect to be informed of the outcomes of this application mid this year. If successful, and approval is given for
matching funding from Council, this will enable delivery of a $3m project. Priority facilities include 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 depend on the final design and associated costings. The Roger
Rasheed Foundation and council continue to seek opportunities for funding for the full $5m project.

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.
Status Update
The concept design has been completed and reviewed by staff. A budget bid for construction in 2019-20 has been submitted

Investigations and administrative actions associated with ongoing management of odour from the Emu Creek twin drainage
pipe system outlet near Marston Drive at Christie Creek.
This project involves liaising with SA Water/Allwater and maintenance staff to identify the source of unpleasant odour from the
drain, and then determine the most appropriate form of long term management of the issue
Status Update
Initial water quality sampling (under dry conditions) was commissioned in December 2018. A second round of sampling of
inflows will be undertaken following a rainfall event to allow the results to be compared and the possible contamination
sources identified. This will inform evaluation of design alternatives for a long term solution to the issue, which may involve
downstream channel works to prevent standing water accumulating in the channel.

community feedback is being used by a specialist design team to revise the concept plan in consultation with key user groups
for presentation to elected members via a briefing and Council report in mid 2019. Two workshops have been held with
Kaurna community representatives in recent months which have highlighted complexities with respect to cultural sensitives
and Kaurna interests in the site. The pursuit of external funding and negotiations for the acquisition of state government
owned land, at no cost to council, is continuing and further updates will be provided as this project progresses.

Wilfred Taylor Reserve is one of the most significant regional sport and recreation facilities in the City of Onkaparinga,
accommodating a range of sport and recreation clubs as well as passive recreation areas. The master plan will provide a more
focussed strategic approach to any further development of this site into the future. This council endorsed project seeks to
develop a master plan to guide development of the Wilfred Taylor Reserve for formal sport and informal recreation. It will
determine the short, medium and longer term asset improvement priorities.
Status Update
The draft master plan was presented to elected members in February 2019 and the Wilfred Taylor Reserve Reference Group
on 1 April 2019. Feedback received is currently being considered. The draft master plan will be presented to the Strategic
Directions Committee in mid 2019 for approval prior to broader community engagement.

Council recently received $1.3million state government funding to develop a regional nature playspace at Wilfred Taylor
Reserve. A preliminary concept design was developed in 2017, and was well supported by the local community. The next
steps of the project will involve review of the concept, detailed design documentation, tender and construction of the play
space. Car parking and supporting facilities are part of the project.
Status Update
The concept design was presented to Council in March 2019 and gained support for further community engagement and
detailed design. Council funds of up to $900,000 were also approved for the delivery of supporting infrastructure (including car
parking, pathways, irrigated turf area). Community engagement was undertaken during April 2019 and included an online
survey and on-site "show and tell" feedback event. Construction of the playspace and supporting infrastructure is scheduled to
commence in late 2019.
