Commission Code Amendments

The Planning and Design Code (the Code) provides a clear set of planning rules for the state.

The Code is a statutory instrument under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016, for the purposes of development assessment and related matters within South Australia.

From time to time the State Planning Commission will initiate a Commission-led Code Amendment. These Code Amendments are generally significant in scope or location, and may propose state-wide changes to the Planning and Design Code.

Please note Code Amendments can be initiated by other organisations. A full list of Code Amendments is available on the PlanSA portal.

Designated Entity:
Lion – Beer, Spirits & Wine Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Zoë Garnaut, Ekistics Planning and Design
T: (08) 7231 0286

Overview:

Lion Beer, Spirits & Wine Pty Ltd is proposing to rezone land at 107 Port Road, Thebarton (Brewery Precinct) to Urban Corridor (Boulevard) Zone or Urban Corridor (Business) Zone or a combination of both, with an area retained as Open Space. This will ensure consistency with the zoning of adjoining sites.

The Affected Area consists of 8.6 hectares of land which has frontages to Port Road, Anderson Street, Walsh Street, Cawthorne Street, Holland Street and the Karrawirra Parri (the River Torrens) in Thebarton. The Affected Area is currently located predominately within the ‘Strategic Employment Zone’ with the southern most two (2) allotments located within the ‘Urban Corridor (Business) Zone’. The northern tip of the Affected Area is located within the ‘Open Space Zone’ (adjacent the Karrawirra Parri / River Torrens).

The Code Amendment will facilitate development of the Affected Area that aligns with the Inner Metro Rim Structure Plan which seeks a “Mixed Infill Corridor area that will strengthen the city edge with high quality public realms and built form at increased densities”.

This rezoning will implement key targets of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide by facilitating a diverse choice in an inner metro mixed use scheme in a vibrant precinct that celebrates its heritage fabric, unique history and proximity to high frequency public transport.

The Code Amendment will help facilitate a once in a generation opportunity to transform almost eight (8) hectares of aging industrial buildings into a unique world-class lifestyle precinct. The Code Amendment will assist in the facilitation of redevelopment of the precinct that aims to:

  • unlock riverfront open space
  • provide connectivity to the Adelaide Parklands to the East
  • offer a diverse range of public spaces to the community
  • celebrate and offer the opportunity for adaptive reuse of heritage assets
  • capitalise on the exposure and visibility to Port Road
  • provide greater community connectivity to the Karrawirra Parri/ River Torrens
  • create a dynamic and vibrant precinct that caters for all daily needs within walking distance.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 13 September 2022.

The Chief Executive of the Department for Infrastructure and Transport is proposing to amend the Planning and Design Code (the Code) to support the South Australian Government’s commitment to build a new Adelaide Aquatic Centre in the Adelaide City northern Park Lands at Pardipardinyilla / Denise Norton Park (Park 2). The code amendment will build on the extensive community consultation and site analysis undertaken to-date and support the development of the new centre immediately south of the existing facility.

The Code allows for the redevelopment of the existing Aquatic Centre site. This code amendment proposes clearer policy that guides the return of the existing site to Park Lands and development of a new multi-purpose Aquatic Centre on adjacent land that results in no net loss of Park Lands.

The amendment proposes to:

  • retain the land within the Adelaide Park Lands Zone
  • introduce a new Aquatic Centre Subzone that provides policy guidance to the development of the new Adelaide Aquatic Centre as well as demolition of the existing centre and the return of the existing site to Park Lands
  • introduce a Concept Plan that guides the development of the new Adelaide Aquatic Centre site including the identification of key access points, carparking and open space
  • ensure suitable policies are investigated to address demolition of the existing facility and establishment of temporary structures that may be required to support the new Aquatic Centre.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in January 2023.

Designated Entity:
City of Marion

Contact Details:
Joanne Reid, Development Officer Planning
T: (08) 8375 6667

Overview:

Following analysis of properties within the Local Activity Centre Zone and Suburban Activity Centre Zone it is apparent that rezoning and/or realignment of zone boundaries needs to occur in certain locations to address a variety of outstanding matters/ irregularities e.g.:

  • the site has been redeveloped with other types of land use that would be better supported by another zone
  • there has been a misalignment of zone boundary that does not spatially reflect the location of the land use
  • a reduction or increase in zone boundary is required to better reflect the land uses in or immediately adjacent the zone.

Marion Council is proposing a Code Amendment that seeks to align the most appropriate zone and policy to each affected site and existing land use (where that land use is unlikely to change for the foreseeable future) to enable/support more efficient and effective future planning outcomes. The proposed Code Amendment also seeks to rezone an existing and operating centre to a Neighbourhood Zone to provide opportunity for a greater diversity of appropriate forms of development to occur (mixed use) if required in the future.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 25 September 2022.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in November 2022 to January 2023.

T: (08) 8333 7999

Overview:

The Proponent (Lasopail PTY LTD) is seeking to rezone 28 hectares of land at Lot 300 Daddow Court, Kadina (Affected Area) from Deferred Urban to Neighbourhood. The Affected Area is on the fringe of the Kadina township and located adjacent to a residential estate. Kadina is experiencing demand for additional dwellings and the Affected Area is recognised as being well-located and serviced, making it a logical expansion of the existing township.

The existing zoning of Deferred Urban has earmarked the land the future development. The Code Amendment is now proposing to undertake the rezoning to bring the land online for development. It is envisaged that the zoning will support low-density residential development, including open space, internal roadways and required infrastructure. Interface between the Affected Area and adjacent rural land will be managed appropriately.

T: 1800 752 664

Overview:

The Future Living Code Amendment seeks to enhance housing diversity by providing housing options for smaller household types and responding to the ageing demographics of the State’s population by providing greater opportunities for ageing in place.

The Code Amendment will apply to certain residential areas within the City of Unley, Town of Walkerville, City of Campbelltown, City of Burnside and City of Prospect, and investigations will consider whether it will also extend to other local government areas.

The Code Amendment seeks to facilitate the delivery of a new model of shared housing or ‘cohousing’, which responds to existing context and incorporates high design quality.

Cohousing is anticipated to deliver the following attributes and design/siting outcomes:

  • no wholesale demolition of the existing house on the site, but rather its retention, alteration and extension
  • reconsideration of Private Open Space in favour of larger areas of shared space
  • permitted overlooking within the allotment, with the maintenance of existing privacy for neighbouring properties
  • newly created dwellings not being subordinate to the existing dwelling, but rather creating a flat hierarchy of dwellings sharing the one site
  • accommodating different age groups and household types.

Initiation of this Code Amendment will assist in the delivery of outcomes from the following initiatives:

  • ‘Planning for a New Future’ Symposium
  • Cohousing for Ageing Well Project
  • Feedback from the Phase Three (Urban Areas) Code Amendment

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
YAS Property & Development and Falkenburg Road Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Anita Allen – Associate Director, URPS
T: (08) 8333 7999

Overview:

The Proponent (YAS Property & Development and Falkenburg Road Pty Ltd) is proposing to rezone land at Golden Grove to support a premium quality master-planned development with open space and new cycling and pedestrian connections.

The rezoning will be undertaken in two stages:

  • Stage 1: Area 500-metres from the existing mining site south of Crouch Road.
  • Stage 2: Area within 500-metre of the existing mining site south of Crouch Road.

Stage 1 proposes to rezone land to the east of Strachan Road from Rural Living to Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone. Additional investigations are being undertaken for Stage 2 to monitor air quality and acoustic impacts on residential amenity. It is envisaged that zoning for Stage 2 will support Commercial and Residential Development.

The affected area is one of the last remaining localities within the City of Tea Tree Gully available for additional population and housing growth. The rezoning will support a growing community and contribute to the consolidation of the urban footprint of Adelaide in a manner that does not compromise strategic primary production areas or areas of strong visual or environmental significance. Additionally, the Code Amendment will address the challenges and opportunities identified in the City of Tea Tree Gully’s Strategic Plan 2025. Namely, the provision of new, mixed housing stock designed in a manner that addresses future needs and contributes to increased population density and diversity.

While the land abuts the Hills Face Zone and the Environment and Food Production Areas (EFPAs), there is no proposal to alter these boundaries.  The Hills Face Zone is a positive feature and provides a natural backdrop to the development area. The natural features within the site also provide opportunities for an attractive open space network which preserves substantial areas of existing trees and intact vegetation.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 6 October 2022.

Consultation on Stage 1 is anticipated to commence in late 2022.

Designated Entity:
Alexandrina Council

Contact Details:
Judith Urquhart
T: (08) 8555 7000

Overview:

Alexandrina Council is proposing to create a sub-zone within the Infrastructure (Ferry and Marina Facilities) Zone as it applies to the Goolwa Wharf precinct at Goolwa. Much of the land lies within the State Heritage Area and contains significant indigenous and colonial heritage relating to the early railway and riverboat trade and transport in the latter half of the 19th Century.

The Infrastructure (Ferry and Marina Facilities) Zone focusses on facilities associated with passenger ferry services and marinas, and associated on-water activities. As there are no ferry services, nor a marina at Goolwa Wharf, and on-water activities are problematic as this part of the River Murray is an Aboriginal Heritage site, it has been determined that the zone policies do not best reflect the current and proposed uses for the Goolwa Wharf which is primarily a tourism and open space precinct. It is therefore considered that the creation of a sub-zone would provide greater clarity and policy guidance for development associated with the community, educational, cultural, and entertainment opportunities envisaged for the precinct.

The addition of a sub-zone will acknowledge the uniqueness of the history of this former river port and its iconic status, and better guide appropriate development associated with the proposed Goolwa Wharf Masterplan.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 14 July 2022.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in August/September 2022.

The affected area is adjacent to the Hillier Residential Park which is reaching capacity and experiencing ongoing demand for over 50s residential living.

Rezoning of the Affected Area will enable and extension of the existing Hillier Residential Park under the Residential Parks Act 2007. This will provide new opportunities for affordable accommodation on the edge of the Gawler Township and in a location that has access to community services and infrastructure. The Affected Area is recognised as having strategic value for housing development give its size, adjacent land use and proximity to community services and infrastructure. The Code Amendment seeks to respond to the population and demographic needs of the area.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
Harmony Forestville Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Rebecca Thomas, Director, Ekistics Planning
T: (08) 7231 0286

Overview:

The owners of 4 Leah Street (95-103 Leader Street), Forestville are proposing to rezone the land occupied by the existing Goodman Fielder bakery operations to an Urban Neighbourhood Zone which will facilitate the redevelopment of the land for a predominately medium density residential infill project which sensitively transitions to a reduced scale and intensity at the new zone boundary to maintain the amenity of adjoining residential properties. The proposed rezoning will make better use of the site’s close proximity to high frequency public transport options, public reserves, cycling infrastructure, walkable neighbourhoods and ensures that replacement of the existing industrial bakery operation will be economically viable due to site contamination obligations.

The Affected Area consists of approximately 7,300m2 and has been used for commercial/industrial purposes since at least the 1920’s. Notwithstanding, the land is currently within an Established Neighbourhood Zone, a low-density residential zone. Immediately opposite the site on the northern side of Leader Street is the former Le Cornu’s site which is zoned Urban Corridor Zone.

The Affected Area offers significant potential for a master planned, medium density residential opportunity that will assist to improve the amenity of Leader Street and the two side streets (Leah Street and First Avenue), as well as reducing existing interface impacts to the southern adjoining properties.

This rezoning will implement key targets of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide by providing opportunity for increased housing diversity in proximity to community infrastructure and services.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in late 2022 or early 2023.

Overview:

The Code Amendment seeks to adjust part of the boundary of the Employment Zone resulting in an extension of the adjoining Neighbourhood Zone into the southeast part of the Affected Area.

The Code Amendment provides a logical extension to the established residential area to the south and east of the Affected Area which is currently serviced by infrastructure within the Neighbourhood Zone and utilises the existing local road network.

An adjustment to the current Employment Zone boundary will allow for efficient development of the site based on the Land Division Concept Plan by Alexander and Symonds (refer concept below – Stage 1), providing six commercial allotments and 10 residential allotments.

The commercial allotments are of a sufficient depth and dimension to be viable for a range of activities will have access to Industry Road, which is a major thoroughfare, via a new internal road wholly contained within the Employment Zone (not part of this code amendment).

The residential allotments adjoin the existing Neighbourhood Zone and will have access from Dridan Avenue which is an established local road that currently services adjoining residential development.

The Code Amendment balances the need for additional residential development within an area that is currently serviced by infrastructure and enables the remainder of the site to be viably developed for commercial development.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 26 October 2022.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in October / November 2021.

Overview:

Marion Council is proposing to amend the zoning of residential properties along Marion Road (between the tram crossing in the north to Sturt Road in the south) in the suburbs of Ascot Park, Marion, Mitchell Park, Park Holme, Plympton Park and South Plympton.

Currently most residential properties along Marion Road are located within the ‘General Neighbourhood Zone’ (predominantly a residential zone with opportunity for small scale commercial type uses) which allows for low rise, low to medium density forms of housing.

Marion Council is considering rezoning many of the residential properties along Marion Road to the ‘Housing Diversity Neighbourhood Zone’, which would provide opportunity for a greater diversity of dwelling types and densities on the sites yet to be redeveloped, to meet the varying needs of the community and facilitate better development outcomes than the current General Neighbourhood Zone.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
Marion Council

Contact Details:
David Melhuish, Senior Policy Planner
T: (08) 8375 6721

Overview:

Marion Council is proposing to amend the planning policy relating to land within the Suburban Neighbourhood Zone (previously Residential Racecourse Zone under the former Development Plan) and portion of the General Neighbourhood Zone, located adjacent the Morphettville Racecourse on the southern side of Bray Street in Morphettville and the western side of Morphett Road in Glengowrie.

The former Residential Racecourse Zone provided the opportunity for the stabling of horses and residential use on the same property. The zone specifically sought detached dwellings at low densities in association with a range of horse related activities, with minimum allotment sizes of 560m² and a 15m frontage.

Under the Planning and Design Code, the area has been rezoned to the Suburban Neighbourhood Zone. The policy within this zone no longer refers to horse related activities, nor is there a requirement for only detached dwellings, but it does maintain the minimum 560m² site area and 15m frontage, which restricts opportunities for subdivision.

It is understood that a number of stable owners in the subject area may consider relocating to other locations if the sale of their current property is financially viable.

Council is therefore considering changes to the zoning of the subject land that will provide the opportunity for residential development at higher densities to be constructed. Council believes that providing a greater diversity of housing choice for the community in the area is worthy of further consideration.

The current necessity to walk horses through and across streets to the racecourse (particularly Bray Street and Morphett Road) is a potentially dangerous practice for both horses and motorists. The removal and/or reduction of stables and horse related activities from the surrounding streets should result in a safer environment.

The former ‘Residential Racecourse Policy Area’ generally overlayed the location of the horse related activities in the area. This resulted in two distinct and separate locations for the policy area.

Council is seeking to rezone the properties located between these two locations (properties fronting Agars Avenue, Ambrose Avenue, and the western side of Don Terrace, which are currently within the General Neighbourhood Zone, to the Suburban Neighbourhood Zone.

Applying the Suburban Neighbourhood Zone, with changes to site dimension requirements that would facilitate further development potential for properties within the area, would provide opportunity for similar and a more consistent and integrated built form and streetscape within the entire area, and particularly along the western end of Bray Street.

Community consultation is anticipated to commence in April/May 2023.

Overview:

The Proponent (Marion Council) is seeking to rezone land across the southern suburbs of Marion Council comprising Darlington, Hallett Cove, Marino, O’Halloran Hill, Seacliff Park, Seacombe Heights, Seaview Downs, Sheidow Park and Trott Park (the Affected Area), to provide a consistent policy approach to sloping land (gradient/site dimensions) that facilitates opportunity for subdivision and redevelopment to occur in appropriate locations.

Much of the housing stock in the older established suburbs in Marion’s south have reached an age where the buildings are no longer of a condition, design and/or size that meets the needs of residents. Many comprise small houses on larger than average allotments.

Although sharing similar topographical characteristics, these predominantly residential suburbs are currently covered by two distinct zones - Hills Neighbourhood Zone and Suburban Neighbourhood Zone – resulting in a lack of consistency in opportunity for redevelopment. Existing planning policies provide for a number of different minimum allotment sizes (site area and frontages) for properties with the same grade of slope. There is also a difference in the type of dwelling that can be built within certain areas.

Marion Council is proposing that all southern residential areas (except for that part of Hallett Cove zoned as General Neighbourhood Zone) be zoned Hills Neighbourhood Zone and that policy for site dimensions and slope gradients be reviewed to provide consistent slope related policy.

The Affected Area is characterised by low to medium density residential development located on sloping land of varying grades. The affected area also includes 19 allotments at Hallett Cove on low lying land with coastal frontage. Adjacent land is predominantly located within the General Neighbourhood Zone, characterised by low density detached dwellings, together with areas of conservation zoning.

Overview:

Windamere Park is an accredited disability services provider with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), currently offering a range of educational and training opportunities for participants, alongside limited supported independent living accommodation and overnight accommodation.

The Windamere Park Code Amendment seeks to amend the Planning and Design Code to enable the expansion of services currently offered. More particularly, the Code Amendment seeks to establish a policy environment that enables the development of much needed Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) in connection with the existing facilities, and in an integrated manner with new conventional residential land uses.

The Affected Area is currently zoned Rural Horticulture and is subject to the dedicated Windamere Park Subzone. This subzone has been prepared in recognition of the Affected Areas use for disability support services. Despite the dedicated Subzone, the corresponding application of the Limited Land Division Overlay and a 10-hectare Minimum Site Area Technical and Numeric Variation (TNV) leads to the division of land being a restricted form of development. The limitation on land division and large minimum allotment size results in a situation that development of SDA is not feasible as investment can not be raised without the ability to create certificates of title.

As such, the Code Amendment proposes to remove the Limited Land Division Overlay and amend the Minimum Site Area TNV to enable the cohesive development of SDA housing integrated with conventional dwellings in a manner that recognises the need to retain the Windamere Park services.

Strath Property Investments Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Stephanie Hensgen, Planning Futures
T: (08) 7093 2750

Overview:

Strath Property Investments Pty Ltd proposes to rezone the whole of the Affected Area from the ‘Hills Neighbourhood Zone’ to the ‘Local Activity Centre Zone’, and proposes new ‘Concept Plan’ to manage the provision of stormwater management and open space, as well as designating vehicular access requirements for future retail and commercial development.

The Affected Area is identified and referenced within the Code Amendment document as being located on land described as Lots 13, 14 & 20 Hampden Way, and Lots 11 & 12 Braemar Drive, Strathalbyn. Overall there are five (5) allotments that comprise the Affected Area, which is located between Hampden Way, Adelaide Road and Braemar Drive.

The Affected Area is a key strategic site in Strathalbyn, however is currently located within the ‘Hills Neighbourhood Zone’, which only allows for low scale residential development and small-scale complementary non-residential uses. Whilst some small-scale non-residential uses are contemplated in the Zone, the development of a ‘shop’ (with a gross leasable floor area greater than 1,000sqm) is significantly limited.

An amendment to the Planning and Design Code is being sought to facilitate a local activity centre that could include future development of a small-scale supermarket, speciality shops, consulting rooms, and personal or domestic service establishments. Replacing the 'Hills Neighbourhood Zone' with a 'Local Activity Centre Zone' is intended to facilitate development to meet the township's growing demand for retail and will focus on providing a convenient and walkable, small-scale centre for local residents and commuters through Strathalbyn.

Several retail assessments of the Strathalbyn township have been conducted on behalf of Strath Property Investments Pty Ltd, and the former Department of Planning, Transport, and Infrastructure. These assessments found that there is an underprovision of retail floor space in Strathalbyn, as well as a significant level of escape expenditure, with retail expenditure and associated economic development being diverted to neighbouring Mount Barker.

A retail assessment completed by Deep End Services in 2022 concurred with previous assessments in relation to the undersupply of retail floor space, and highlighted that this undersupply has become more prevalent since the last assessment in 2017. Deep End Services attributed this to Strathalbyn’s steady long term population growth, recent trends in increased regional migration, and there being little to no growth in the provision of new retail floor space within Strathalbyn.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
Land Vision Group Pty Ltd on behalf of Platinum Property Retirement Pty Ltd and/or Nominee

Contact Details:
Nitsan Taylor, Holmes Dyer Pty Ltd
T: (08) 7231 1889

Overview:

The Designated Entity is proposing to rezone land colloquially known as ‘Yenlo Park’ from Rural Zone to Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone to enable low to medium density residential development to occur.

The Affected Area consists of a single allotment of 29 hectares that has been developed with a residence and associated rural outbuildings and sheds, with the balance of the Affected Area used for agricultural purposes. The Affected Area is bound to the east by Twartz Road, to the south by Redbanks Road, and to the west by disused railway line.

Land to the north and east of the Affected Area is zoned Master Planned Neighbourhood and was rezoned to allow for residential development as part of the Roseworthy Township Expansion Development Plan Amendment (DPA) in 2016. Land to the west of the disused railway line is zoned Rural and land to the south of Redbanks Road is zoned Rural Living.

The Affected Area was originally included in the Roseworthy Township Expansion DPA however it was removed from the scope of the DPA at the end of the rezoning process due to infrastructure agreements not being met within the prescribed timeframe. As a result, the Affected Area is the only pocket of rural-zoned land to the north of Redbanks Road, east of the disused railway line and west of Horrocks Highway that is not zoned Master Planned Neighbourhood.

The Code Amendment therefore seeks to rezone the Affected Area to reflect the zoning applied to surrounding land.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 9 August 2022 to 6 September 2022.

Overview:

The City of Charles Sturt is proposing to rezone land at Albert Park to enable a diversity of low to medium density housing and commercial development. The Affected Area (area investigated for the proposed rezoning) comprises around 11 ha of land bound by Port Road, West Lakes Boulevard, Glyde Street, Osborne Street, Grace Street, and south of Jervois Street (refer to Area Affected map below).

The land is currently located within the Strategic Employment Zone and Employment Zone and comprised primarily of large scale industrial and commercial buildings, a church, and low-density residential properties located in the General Neighbourhood Zone.

The Code Amendment investigations propose the Suburban Business Zone and Housing Diversity Neighbourhood Zone be applied to most of the affected area. This rezoning will implement key targets of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide by providing opportunity for increased housing diversity in proximity to community infrastructure and services.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 21 March 2022 to  23 May 2022.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
Chief Executive, Attorney-General's Department

Contact Details:

T: 1800 752 664

Overview:

The Chief Executive of the Attorney-General’s Department is proposing to rezone 235 hectares of land across Hackham and Old Noarlunga to address an immediate need for further land supply and population growth in the south of Adelaide. The rezoning will facilitate a potential residential development of approximately 2000 new houses plus a retail centre in Hackham, as well as provide new policy to improve development on sloping land.

206.1 hectares of this land, located on Main South Road (between Hepenstal Road and Church Hill Road) in Hackham, is currently zoned as Rural. It is proposed that this land be rezoned to Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone, to allow for housing to be developed in a logical and sequential way.

In Old Noarlunga and Hackham, 15.2 hectares is currently zoned Employment and is proposed to be rezoned Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone.

13.7 hectares of land at Old Noarlunga —currently zoned Rural— is proposed to be rezoned Rural Neighbourhood Zone. This proposed change better aligns the zoning with the existing land uses in Old Noarlunga and is not intended to result in any changes to the area. In addition, a Minimum Site Area Technical and Numeric Variation of 2 hectares is proposed to prevent allotments being further subdivided, to ensure a clear separation between Old Noarlunga and the new development which is proposed to occur in Hackham.

A new concept plan is also being introduced to assist in addressing infrastructure requirements for land proposed to be rezoned Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 23 July 2021.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 31 May 2022 to  26 July 2022.

Designated Entity:
Pierson Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Emily Nankivell
T: (08) 8221 5511

Overview:

Pierson Pty Ltd (Designated Entity) proposes a Code Amendment in relation to the land located at 25  Pierson Street, Lockleys (the Affected Area). The Affected Area is presently within the Employment Zone and contains the Westpac Mortgage Centre and the Lockleys Child Care and Early Learning Centre. The Designated Entity has a vision to establish a medium density residential development on the Affected Area. This vision necessitates the Affected Area being rezoned from the Employment Zone to an alternate and appropriate neighbourhood-type zone. The Urban Neighbourhood Zone has been identified as an appropriate zone for the purposes of the Code Amendment.

The rezoning will facilitate the redevelopment of the Affected Area from an intensive commercial use to a primarily medium density residential use with smaller low scale non-residential uses that provide services to support the local community. The future redevelopment of the site in this way will provide opportunities to significantly improve the amenity of the locality and pedestrian linkages to the River Torrens Linear Park, together with opportunities to reduce hard paved surfaces on the site, increase impervious surfaces and allow opportunities to provide public open space.

In addition, the proposed rezoning aligns with a number of relevant State Planning Policies in relation to integrated planning (including housing density, diversity and affordability), design quality, employment lands, strategic transport infrastructure (including opportunities for non-car dependent travel), natural hazards and water quality. It also aligns with a number of relevant policies within the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide. In particular, the Code Amendment correlates with the 30-Year Plan policies in respect to transit corridors, growth areas and activity centres, design quality, housing mix, affordability and competitiveness, health, wellbeing and inclusion, the economy and jobs and transport.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 13 September 2021 to  24 October 2021.

Overview:

The Proponent (Mary and Arthur Street Pty Ltd) is seeking to rezone 1.14 hectares of land at 79-85 Mary Street, Unley, 58 Arthur Street, Unley and 62 Arthur Street, Unley (Affected Area) from the Established Neighbourhood Zone to the Housing Diversity Neighbourhood Zone. The Affected Area has a frontage to both Arthur and Mary Street and currently accommodates a place of worship and associated car parking which has since been abandoned and become derelict. The Area Affected also includes two residential allotments facing Arthur Street.

The Affected Area is recognised to have strategic value for housing development given its size, strategic location close to community services and infrastructure, capacity to manage development impacts on-site and recognition that the land is no longer required for its previous purpose. It is envisaged that the zoning will support low to medium density residential development including public open space, protection of existing significant trees, and a new access road that will minimise impacts on surrounding residential areas.

T: (08) 8333 7999

Overview:

The Proponent (T & J Viney Property Pty Ltd) is seeking to rezone a single allotment at McEvoy Road, Virginia from Deferred Urban to Master Planned Township Zone. The Affected Area is a vacant site with an area of 10.30 hectares and is more accurately described as Lot 22 in Filed Plan 114583. The Affected Area is a triangular shaped allotment bordered by Port Wakefield Road to the south-west and McEvoy Road to the north and a large vacant allotment to the east.

The Affected Area was identified in the previous Playford Growth Areas Structure Plan, December 2013 as being appropriate for residential type land uses. A corresponding Playford Urban Growth Areas (Angle Vale, Playford North Extension and Virginia) and General Amendments Development Plan Amendment was undertaken by the (then) Minister for Planning. Final authorisation of this previous DPA and subsequent rezoning of individuals land was contingent on landowners agreeing and executing applicable Infrastructure Agreements and a corresponding Land Management Agreement. Due to extenuating circumstances at the time, the Proponent was not in a position to execute the Infrastructure Agreements and Land Management Agreements. As such, the Affected Area was not rezoned for residential purposes as expected. Rather, the DPA resulted in the land being zoned Deferred Urban. This zone does not facilitate development for residential purposes.

The Proponent has now executed the Infrastructure Agreements and Land Management Agreement. As such, the proposal seeks to rezone the allotment to the Master Planned Township Zone and apply the Emerging Township Activity Centre Subzone. This will result in the consistent application of Code policy within the locality.

Overview:

The objective of the Code Amendment is to apply a more appropriate zone to three (3) allotments on the fringe of Nuriootpa on Old Sturt Highway that were isolated when the Sturt Highway was realigned. The allotments are currently zoned Rural as prior to the realignment they were associated with larger agricultural holdings on the northern side of the realigned Highway. The allotments that form the Area Affected are vacant and are 1.184 square metres in total.

The Code Amendment seeks to apply the Employment Zone, having regard to the non-suitability of the allotments for agricultural purposes given their size, shape and isolation, the pattern of zoning to the south of Old Sturt Highway, the location of the allotments directly adjacent to the realigned Highway, and a previous approval granted by Light Regional Council to develop service trade premises on the allotments.

The Employment Zone will allow for a range of low-impact light industrial, commercial and business activities.

Creation Homes (SA) Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Nitsan Taylor, Holmes Dyer
T: (08) 7231 1889

Overview:

Creation Homes (SA) Pty Ltd proposes to rezone two areas of the existing Thaxted Park Golf Course land from the ‘Recreation Zone’ to the ‘General Neighbourhood Zone’. The Affected Areas are identified and referenced within the Code Amendment document as ‘Area 1’ and ‘Area 2’ and are located on land described as Lot 1002 Golf Course Drive, Woodcroft.   ‘Area 1’ occupies the north-western corner of the Thaxted Park Golf Course and comprises an approximate area of 3.16 hectares. ‘Area 2’ comprises an approximate area of 3.92 hectares and occupies the south-western corner of the Thaxted Park Golf Course. Both Affected Areas presently form part of the existing golf course grounds.

Rezoning the Affected Areas to the ‘General Neighbourhood Zone’ will create a policy framework is primarily intended to support low-rise (one and two storey) residential development set at predominantly low densities (with medium densities in areas closer to public open space, public transport stations and activity centres). The General Neighbourhood Zone also contemplates employment and community service uses which contribute to making the neighbourhood a convenient place to live, without compromising residential amenity. The zoning selected for both Affected Areas is the result of extensive investigations and is also consistent with the existing residential zoning over established residential areas to the north of ‘Area 1’ and south-west of ‘Area 2’ (opposite side of Panalatinga Road). The Code Amendment also proposes the creation a Concept Plan for Area 1 to guide the location of public open space, the preservation of mature vegetation, site access, pedestrian connections and interface impacts.

The balance of land (beyond the Affected Areas) will continue to be used as a golf course and revenue generated by the sale of the Affected Areas will be reinvested back into the Club to ensure its long-term viability. The majority of this land will remain within the ‘Recreation Zone’ and ‘Hills Face Zone’ which provides an appropriate policy framework that is conducive to the ongoing use of the land as a golf course.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 24 June 2021.

T: (08) 8193 5600

Overview:

Walker Corporation has recently commenced the construction of the first stages of the master planned community at Buckland Park, referred to as Riverlea. At the time planning policies were established for the development of Buckland Park, an allocation of approximately 60 hectares was made for the principal centre, which was then known as the District Centre and is now known as the Suburban Activity Centre. Since the policies were established there has been substantial change in retailing and service delivery, which has reduced the demand for land to accommodate these uses and a rationalisation of the boundaries of the Suburban Activity Centre Zone is appropriate.

The Walker Corporation now propose to develop portion of the land on the northern side of Riverlea Boulevard (the principal access), that is located within the Suburban Activity Centre Zone for residential purposes. The Code Amendment decreased the Suburban Activity Centre Zone in size and confined it to be located on the southern side of Riverlea Boulevard. The remaining Suburban Activity Centre Zone has an area of approximately 42 hectares and will continue to facilitate a wide range of retail, commercial, service and employment opportunities to support the developing Riverlea community.

This Code Amendment entitled the “Buckland Park Suburban Activity Centre Zone Code Amendment” was prepared by the Walker Corporation (the Designated Entity) to alter the zoning of the land within the Suburban Activity Centre Zone.

Overview:

Adelaide Hebrew Congregation Inc., Belljo Pty Ltd & Flemington Street Pty Ltd proposed an amendment to the Planning and Design Code for land located at 13 Flemington Street, Glenside. The land forming part of this Code Amendment comprises both an existing synagogue and a former primary school (Massada College).

The land affected by this Code Amendment is identified as a strategic infill site which is located in proximity of the existing Glenside redevelopment, other residential activities and is conveniently located in relation to public transport and services.

The lands former zoning as Community Facilities did not enable the realisation of this potential. As such, the Code Amendment rezoned the land to the Housing Diversity Neighbourhood Zone. This zone is consistent with other land immediately adjacent the Affected Area and will enable the staged redevelopment of this largely dormant site for residential type activities. The proposal includes the insertion of policy which seeks to limit new buildings to a maximum height of 2-storeys and a minimum site area of 200 square metres.

Overview:

The Local Design Review Code Amendment has been adopted by the Minister for Planning and Local Government. This Amendment gives effect to the Local Design Review Scheme, which provides a consistent state-wide approach for councils to establish their own Design Review panels for local development proposals.

During the six-week consultation period 14 submissions were received. As a result, the proposed Amendment was updated to improve early proponent access to Local Design Review, reduce administration by council staff and improve customer service. This demonstrates the Community Engagement Charter in action and how South Australians have helped to influence better outcomes for our state.

The Engagement Report is available below and details the process and outcomes of the engagement, including a summary of the feedback received and how the proposed Amendment was updated.

The Amendment will come into effect when consolidated into the online Planning and Design Code, which will occur in early 2022.
