The community, or Council, often identifies traffic or parking management issues within a local street network. These issues are investigated by Council and in some cases, simple, low cost, site specific treatments will address the identified issue.
In other cases more substantial treatments are required. These treatments are usually aimed at reducing traffic volumes, reducing traffic speeds or major improvements to intersections using treatments such as reduced speed limits, road humps, slow points, roundabouts, road closures, driveway links etc. These more substantial treatments can create new issues or relocate an issue to other streets in the area. As a result, the use of substantial traffic management treatments in the local street network need to be considered on an area wide basis. The management of traffic on the local street network as a whole area is termed Local Area Traffic Management (LATM). Transport and Parking Plans are developed to recommend LATM and parking improvements, which are prioritised and installed over a number of years
TPP study areas are defined by physical barriers such as rivers, major and distributor roads and commonality of land uses.
Prioritisation is based on a system where scores are allocated to each local area precinct based on its recorded performance. The criteria includes:

The Woodville West Transport and Parking (WWTPP) is to provide recommendations for future improvements for the local transport network, including a strategy for implementation. A detailed assessment of the existing conditions within the study area was undertaken. The previous studies have been reviewed and summarised with an assessment undertaken on the recommendations contained within these reports.
The Welland Transport and Parking Plan (WTPP) is to plan for future demands of streets and open spaces in response to changing expectations about how we move around our neighbourhood. The area is bounded by Port Road, South Road, Grange Road and East Ave.
The Henley Transport and Parking Plan (HTPP) looks at existing transport and parking issues in the Henley Beach area, with a specific focus on the Henley Square Precinct. The Plan contains specific actions to improve transport and parking, now and in the future.
A Local Area Traffic Management Plan has been established for the Bowden and Brompton area to help Council make decisions for the management of local traffic for the area in the future. The plan covers an area bounded by Port Road, South Road, Torrens Road and Park Terrace and has been developed in consultation with residents through letters, advertising and a resident steering group.
A Local Area Traffic Management Plan is being established for the Beverley area. It will assist the Council to make decisions for the management of traffic on the local street network over coming years. The plan covers an area bounded by Port Road, East Avenue, Grange Road, Crittenden Road, Birch Street and Ledger Road and has been developed in consultation with residents through letters, advertising and a resident steering group.
