Crafers Village Design Guidelines Endorsed by Council

At its meeting on the 15th December 2020 the Council endorsed the Crafers Village Design Guidelines, and this marked the final key milestone in the development of the Guidelines. With Council endorsement, the document is now 'live' and will influence built form and public realm investment within the Crafers Village into the future.

Community Engagement Summary

You may be interested in reviewing all the community engagement feedback we received during the project, and you can do this by clicking through to the document here: Community Engagement - Outcomes Report Stage I & II.

We are also currently putting together a short video that outlines the key changes to the Guidelines on account of the feedback provided during the second stage of community engagement (where we presented the draft Guidelines). We will circulate this to you directly via email for those who are subscribed and upload it here under the Videos tab for reference.

Next Steps

We will have some exciting news for you over the coming months regarding a project that will improve cycling and pedestrian connectivity around the main street. In addition, we are looking to secure funding for future pedestrian and open space upgrades. If you would like to stay updated on future projects please send us an email (if you are not already subscribed).

In addition, we would love to hear from those in the Crafers community who have ideas or would like to lead specific projects on the ground to help achieve positive change for Crafers in line with the Guidelines. Please contact us to discuss, our door is always open!

If you have any specific questions about the project and/or next steps please feel free to leave a question below and we will get back to you.

    Will the additional freeway lane between Crafers and Stirling solve the problem of some driver’s perceived need to gather speed along Crafers Main Street before they access the on ramp to enter the freeway? The speed limit does not seem to be much of a deterrent.

    Thanks so much for your question. 

    • The Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure Managed Motorway Project project will convert the existing emergency lane into a third full time travel lane and implement a Managed Motorway on both the up and down tracks of the South Eastern Freeway between Crafers and Stirling.
    • Given the project is being undertaken entirely within the current South Eastern Freeway road corridor there will be no design impacts on the Crafers Main Street (although you may notice some construction activity including a temporary project office and plant storage adjacent the Crafers outbound on-ramp). 
    • It is anticipated that the Managed Motorways project will offer improved transition into the South Eastern Freeway from the Crafers on-ramp (and through to Stirling), but how that will impact on road user behaviour on the Crafers Main Street is difficult to quantify. However the Main Street design (such as the potential for a raised tabletop pedestrian crossing) will likely have a greater impact on road-user behaviour and speeds on the Main Street than the Managed Motorway Project. 


    Overall, the Managed Motorway Project, in conjunction with tabletop pedestrian crossings and other management techniques, will significantly improve the character of the mainstreet.

    I encourage you to speak with Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (on 1300 794 880) or take a look at the project link for further information:

    Being able to promote local business is important - including reasonable signage. Is there a guideline about allowing this to occur? Eg: Ateliers really adds value to the main street of crafers however without decent signage from the street the business is overlooked. Is there a plan to include play spaces for children? The tennis club is taking over by addition additional facilities but there is nothing for young children to do during this time they are playing and the parking lot and cars going everywhere is really unsafe. Cox Creek Road is a walking track but there are no formal walking paths for the road which means the local residents/ tennis- netball club- pedestrians combo is really unsafe at times. Cars come up the hill so fast into the street without any reasonable understanding that this is a scared space. How is this expected to be fixed?

    Great questions. The issues you have raised will be considered during the community engagement process, to firstly understand the context and then develop some design responses that will address them. If you haven't already we recommend you register to join the virtual project team by sending your details (name and phone number) to engage@ahc.sa.gov.au
