Open Space Guideline

Council receives a large number of development applications relating to land divisions in new estates each year which contribute to the urban growth within the Town of Gawler.

Each new land division creates public realm infrastructure that is required to support these new communities. The aim of the Guideline is to communicate standards and requirements (ie quantity and quality of open space and associated infrastructure) for open space areas that aligns with Council’s standard operational service levels.

The Design Manual outlines Council’s standardised materials and furniture suites for use within open spaces and civic areas. The Open Space Guideline and associated documents are available for download below.

A series of Fact Sheets have been created as quick reference for:

  • Tree Species Guide
  • Roadside Verges
  • Steep Creeks
  • Bond & Infrastructure Agreements
  • Open Space Checklist – Approvals and Handover
