AN expert panel on planning reform has released
a report outlining 27 proposals designed to create
a planning system to make it easier for regional
development applications to be approved.
Think Design Deliver's recommendations are char-
acterised by transparency, consistency, consultation
and a strong connection to regional areas, according
to panel chair Brian Hayes.
Mr Hayes delivered the report, Our Ideas for
Reform, to Minister for Planning John Rau after 12
months of research and consultation with stakehold-
ers across South Australia.
The panel was formally advised throughout the
process by representatives of 22 stakeholder groups
from across the state.
"South Australians want a simpler system that all
users -- from large development companies to the
'mums and dads' that put in the majority of develop-
ment applications -- can easily access and use," Mr
"This is simply not possible now in a system that
relies on around 1200 land-use zones that are ex-
pressed in more than 20,000 pages of planning rules
Through August and September, the panel will
work closely with local councils, community groups,
industry and professional organisations to examine
how each idea would work in a South Australian con-
Following careful analysis of any feedback received,
recommendations for the future of planning in the
state will be presented to the Minister for Planning

A PAIR of railway crossings in Two Wells
have been identified as among the most
dangerous in the state for near misses
between trains, cyclists and pedestrians.
The Karonie and Elizabeth Street cross-
ings were named on a list of high-risk
crossings released by SAPOL this week.
As part of National Rail Safety Week,
police are running Operation Rail Safe this
week to highlight the risks at local railway
tracks and crossings.
Train drivers have identified eight metro-
politan and nine rural level crossings around
the state which see a high level of risky be-
The train drivers nominated crossings
where they regularly notice pedestrians not
heeding warning signs and signals, taking
shortcuts on railway lines, being distracted
by listening to music or on the phone.
Transit Services Branch Senior Sergeant
Michael Flori said police would be paying
extra attention to those high-risk level cross-
ings during the operation.
"We'll be using a highly visible, intercept
style of policing in locations, at the times
with the highest traffic and rail volumes, so
we can reach as many pedestrians as possible
around railway tracks," he said.
"Specifically, police will target people who
disobey warning signs and signals, through
inattention, distraction or contempt for the
National research points to nearly 1000
near-miss incidents a year -- lives that were a
split-second away from being lost.
