Open Space and Public Realm Investment
Quality public space is essential to healthy, liveable communities. Providing quality public open spaces which can provide a range of activities; and support safe, healthy, connected communities is becoming increasingly important.
The Planning and Development Fund allows the Government to adopt a State-wide approach to strategically implement open space and public realm projects in an objective manner through direct investment in State Government projects, co-investment opportunities and two grant programs for local government (Open Space and Places for People).
In the last 10 years, over $190 million has been provided to approximately 500 open space and public realm projects across South Australia.
