    Far North Regional Land Use Framework
    Draft for consultation

    A draft Far North Regional Land Use Framework has been released for public consultation until 12 December 2008.
    The Framework, once finalised, will guide future development across the Far North, an area covered by four councils – Port Augusta City Council, the District Council of Coober Pedy, the Flinders Ranges Council and the Municipal Council of Roxby Downs.
    It also includes the majority of the unincorporated (out of council) areas of the state and the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands).
    How will the Framework guide development?
    The draft Regional Land Use Framework presents a vision for the growth and development of the Far North Region.
    It recognises the variation in geographic features, economic strengths and community aspirations across the Far North Region, and makes the most of the different opportunities these present, and seeks to balance the needs of people today with the needs of future generations.
    The key elements of the vision are:
    • Population and industry growth, with a focus on Port Augusta, Roxby Downs and Coober Pedy
    • Building sustainable local service towns and communities, informed by strategic infrastructure and services planning
    • Strengthen the tourism industry in the Outback and Flinders Ranges, building on the region’s rich natural and cultural assets
    • Expansion of mining and defence industries, and associated infrastructure
    • Sustainable and innovative approaches to securing water and energy supplies
    The draft Framework broadly identifies where housing, population and industry growth is best located – and not located – across the Far North Region.
    It identifies the different roles and functions various parts of the region can play, and tackles issues such as the interface between industry, residential areas and valuable environmental assets; and the role and function of townships.

  2. Who has been involved in developing the draft Framework?

    The draft Framework has been developed from the ‘ground-up’, through a collaborative process involving Planning SA, the Port Augusta City Council, the District Council of Coober Pedy, the Flinders Ranges Council, the Northern Regional Development Board, local Natural Resource Management Boards, the Outback Areas Community Development Trust and various state government agencies. The draft is now being released for public input.
    The draft Far North Regional Land Use Framework has been released for 8 weeks of public comment until 12 December 2008.
    Written submissions commenting on the draft should be sent to:
    Far North Framework
    Planning SA
    GPO Box 1815, Adelaide SA 5001
    or by email to: PLNSA.strategic@saugov.sa.gov.au
    ———————————————————————————–
    I would already like to make a comment:- why is the ‘ground-up’ consultation definition used? when it seems to be the governing bodies setting the framework?
    Also the last 2 dot points are definitely counter to each other. You can have one…or the other…not both.
    Well, that’s my opinion anyway.

  4. These two are at odds unless the vision shifts from current SA policy on mining governance.
    • Expansion of mining and defence industries, and associated infrastructure
    • Sustainable and innovative approaches to securing water and energy supplies
