    • Golf Links Policy Area 16
    • River Torrens East Policy Area 18
    • Botanic Park Policy Area 19
    • Rundle and Rymill Parks Policy Area 20
    • River Torrens West Policy Area 24.
  • Amend the Desired Character for the Park Lands Zone and the Rundle and Rymill Parks Policy Area 20 to actively contemplate future transport infrastructure including a tunnel and pedestrian footbridges.
  • Amend the Desired Character and Principles of Development Control of the following Policy Areas to provide a more supportive planning policy framework for development associated with an improved O-Bahn City Access Route:
    • River Torrens East Policy Area 18
    • Botanic Park Policy Area 19
    • Rundle and Rymill Parks Policy Area 20.
