Local Area Traffic Management Action Plans (formerly Draft TAPAS Action Plans)

Consultation has concluded

Council has prepared Draft Traffic and Parking Area Scheme (TAPAS) Action Plans [now known as Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Action Plans] to manage traffic and parking across 7 LATM Zones. The Action Plans will be used to coordinate a program of works and projects over the next 10 years.

The Action Plans will be updated and reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure they are relevant and up-to-date (last updated September 2019).

Extensive community consultation took place in 2016 as part of Phase 1 of this project - for full details refer to TAPAS Consultation - Stage 1 . The engagement findings were reported to Council on 18 July 2016 (Min. No. 247) whereby Council resolved that individual Action Plans be prepared.

The consultation outcomes were used to inform the preparation of an Action Plan for each of the seven LATM Zones. Phase 2 involved undertaking a detailed technical review in each Zone including locations of public transport nodes, traffic count and crash data, recent development approvals, and state government projects. A technical assessment of the Phase 1 findings was also undertaken.

On 26 June 2017 Council resolved (Min. No. 214) to place the Draft Action Plans on exhibition for a minimum of 60 days. During the public exhibition period, Council held a series of drop-in sessions where members of the public can discuss the plans with Council staff and provide feedback in person. The exhibition period commenced 3 August and concluded 23 October 2017. Council received 45 submissions.

The post-exhibition report was considered at Council's meeting on 4 December 2017 (Min. No. 479). Council resolved:

1. THAT Council adopt the final Traffic and Parking Area Scheme (TAPAS) Action Plans for TAPAS Zones 1 to 7 and the Action Plans be published on Council’s website, subject to title changes being made throughout the documents.
2. THAT the title of the TAPAS Action Plans be changed to Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Action Plan and list the respective suburbs on the cover pages for each LATM.
3. THAT Council note Attachment No. 3 – the summary of amendments to each Action Plan made after Phase 2 community engagement.
4. THAT the associated costs of implementing the Action Plans be considered in preparation of the Delivery Program for 2018/19 to 2020/21.
