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

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 premium.

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 length of which depends on the
required assessment path and whether
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. Renewal SA sought community feedback on two draft structure plans
to inform the future rezoning of the affected area. Council administration undertook an analysis of the two options and
presented a report on the draft Structure Plan options to council’s Strategic Direction Committee (the Committee) at its
meeting of 2 July 2019. The Committee endorsed the report and letter (submission) to Renewal SA raising a number of
matters including the green triangle, interface, density, traffic and connectivity. Renewal SA are considered feedback and
resolving infrastructure matters. Once the structure plan has been finalised by Renewal SA, this will then inform the future
rezoning of the subject land. Implementation of the Structure Plan will be affected by the commencement of the Planning and
Design Code in September and will warrant a Code Amendment under the new system as no further DPAs will be accepted
by DPTI. We will advocate to ensure Council’s work on the AFP and inputs into the structure plan will be used to inform the

With regard to Clarendon in particular we reiterated the need and communities desire for the application of the Significant
Landscape Protection Overlay to replicate the (former) Landscape Environs Precinct and for further improvements for the
Heritage Area Statements.
Together, the CCA and Council’s submissions clearly outlined how these matters are consistent with existing policy and how
they can be achieved under the Code. At this time, we have not received a response to the submission however we’ll continue
to advocate on behalf of our community to achieve their views.

                                                                                Est Completion        Percent                      On

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.

applications with guidance from our team. Our team has met with around 60 businesses to discuss their intent to apply for a
grant. Besides the Grant Writing Workshop, only one Discovery Session was delivered in February, which was a tutorial on

A key component of the OLAP is stakeholder engagement. A community leaders forum was scheduled for 27 March however
due to COVID-19 and based on advice provided by the Australian Government regarding restrictions and guidelines for public
gatherings, in the interest of public health and safety this event was cancelled.
However, to ensure active participation of key community leaders in our Local Area Planning process we took the opportunity
to provide an online scene-setting presentation and facilitated discussion via council’s YourSay platform. We sent out an email
invitation to stakeholders to join us and other community leaders in the Community Leaders Online Discussion Forum, where
participants where encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas on the future growth of our city.
The feedback received from community leaders will be taken into consideration in the preparation of the draft Local Area Plan.
We are scheduled to commence general community engagement on the draft LAP in mid-May 2020.

Council maintains a strong commitment to reviewing and responding to proposed changes to the South Australian planning
system by government and other industry sectors. Doing so ensures we remain engaged in these deliberations and protect
the interests of our community but also ensures that we flag any significant implications to our council should the ideas be
implemented by government.

The state government is progressing planning for a Birth-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. Council has been negotiating the State
Government and project proponents to secure shared use of identified school facilities for community use.
Status Update
Staff have been working with the state government and the successful proponent team (TESA Education) (contracted by the
state to build and operate the new school) to progress opportunities for shared use of the school facilities. A final Shared-Use
Agreement (known as the Council Enhancements Deed) was endorsed by Council in March 2020 and executed by the CEO in
accordance with Council’s delegated authority. This agreement secures Council’s interests in key sports facilities including the
senior oval, 2 soccer pitches and the indoor multi-purpose court facility, for a period of 30 years. The school project
development application (lodged in December 2019) was the subject of a State Commission Assessment Panel (SCAP)
hearing in March 2020. The Minister for Education has now granted approval for the project, subject to a number of conditions.
Council staff continue to work with the Project Team and state government to ensure that these conditions are met, and
particularly, that infrastructure associated with the school (stormwater, road access and car parking) is being planned and
designed to integrate with existing and future networks. The project builder, Sarah Constructions, commenced works on site in
mid-April 2020.

The Council approved Christie Downs 20 Year Strategic Management Plan (SMP) was developed in partnership with Renewal
SA to guide future public and private investment in the suburb. The upgrade of Morton Road Reserve into a central park is
identified as a key action in the SMP under the objective 'create a vibrant heart of Christie Downs'.
Status Update
The City of Onkaparinga has received $1.5M state government grant funding through the Open Space Places for People
Program for the Morton Road reserve upgrade, Christie Downs. 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 and adventure play space. The Roger
Rasheed Sport Foundation (RRSF) has pledged a further $100,000 towards the project which will expand the scope of the
project to include a multi-use tennis court. The final scope will be refined dependent on the final design and associated
costing. There are ongoing discussions with the RRSF about the possibility of further additional external support to allow
expansion of this scope to include more tennis courts, a community oval and running track, in line with the greater vision for
this reserve. The design of the reserve upgrade and skate park is progressing and a contractor has been engaged to construct
the skate park. Opportunities for the community to input into the design process will be shared on council’s Your Say website.

Efficiency gains identified by the Infrastructure Assets team
Status Update
During the January to March period we have enriched the data being transferred to the Technology One System by simplifying
some of the asset categorisations so that it will be easier for users to find assets without having to have detailed knowledge of
the organisational structure. Also the data presentation has been abridged to only show fields that are actually used so that
the user sees a succinct overview of the asset without having to move from window to window.
The simplification approach will also enable an easier and more comprehensive use of the Strategic Asset Management
(SAM) tools and also improve the ease of revaluing assets for financial reporting.

Development of new building facilities at the Flagstaff Hill Community Centre
Status Update
Flagstaff Hill Sports and Community Centre (FHSCC) redevelopment has a total budget of $1.14M, of which the FHSCC
secured $900k in external funding and Council contributed $240k in accord with a 20 March 2018 resolution. The project has
two components: 1) the change room module and 2) clubroom refurbishment.

We are currently finalising the location of change rooms based on the outcomes of our community engagement. In conjunction
with the above, a concept plan associated with the relocation and renewal of the playground was also tested as part of our
community engagement process. We will now work with Ward Members and the FHSCC to determine next steps.

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 in the Hackham South East project area with significant residential development underway.
These developments necessitate council carrying out work under the Infrastructure Contribution Agreements. Where possible
streetscape designs are being coordinated with the design of the adjacent private developments. The Penneys Rise Stage 1
road reconstruction is near completion with only minor verge works to be completed. Stormwater works have been undertaken
along Gates Road, with the Gates and Hepenstal road reconstruction works placed on hold to align with the adjacent
residential development. The Sturt Lane road reconstruction design is complete and timing of the adjacent private residential
development is being confirmed.

The installation of solar photovoltaic cells on three of council’s highest energy-consuming sites will significantly reduce energy
costs and carbon footprint.
Sites include: Noarlunga Office, Field Operations Centre, Woodcroft Community Centre

Installation works have been completed at all sites and the final connection process with SAPN is currently being completed. It
is expected that all sites will be generating solar energy by April/May – resulting in reduced electricity bills and carbon
emissions from that point onwards.

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.

On 10 December 2019 Council approved the revised concept plan to guide enhancement of this precinct. In accordance with
Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation (AAR) advice, our request for authorisation under Section 23 of the
Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988 to conduct excavation works within a culturally significant area continues to progress. The AAR
led consultation process has been completed and a decision from the Premier is anticipated mid 2020. In line with Council's
direction, detailed design remains on hold pending the outcome of this process. In the interim some targeted engagement with
aquatic user groups has continued and specific technical investigations, relating to the riverfront, are underway to inform the
detailed design process. An application seeking joint funding as part of the state government Open Space Grant Funding
Program has been submitted for public realm works (excluding aquatic facilities). Construction of the project is subject to
external funding, transfer of state government owned land (at no cost to council) and statutory approvals.

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 include 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.
