Certain aspects of the O-Bahn City Access Project require approval pursuant to the Development Act 1993.

Certain aspects of the O-Bahn City Access Project require approval pursuant to the Development Act 1993.

The proposed development has been divided into separate development applications, each with differing development approval processes. This is distinguished by development within the Adelaide Park Lands, and development outside of the Adelaide Park Lands.

The development outside the Adelaide Park Lands will be assessed pursuant to section 49 of the Development Act 1993 – for Crown Development and Public Infrastructure.

As a result of the Adelaide Park Lands Act 2005, this section of the Development Act 1993 cannot be used for works within the Adelaide Park Lands and will be assessed pursuant to section 33.

These applications are being processed and assessed through separate sections of the Development Act 1993.

A total of three separate development applications have been lodged with the Development Assessment Commission. These being:

  • Development Application 020/L073/15 – Section 33 Development Application – Development in the Adelaide Park Lands (within City of Adelaide)
  • Development Application 155/V009/15 – Section 49 Crown Development Application – Development outside of the Adelaide Park Lands (within the City of Norwood, Payneham & St Peters)
  • Development Application 155/V008/15 - Section 49 Crown Development Application - Tree Damaging Activities within the City of Norwood, Payneham & St Peters and the Town of Walkerville.

The application plans are based on the Reference Design contained in the Project Impact Report, released in August 2015 in response to the broad community and stakeholder engagement program. Further information has also been developed more recently by the preferred contractor McConnell Dowell on several design elements which has been provided in an addendum to each Development application.  The detailed design will continue to be refined through ongoing consultation with the affected councils.
