To ensure the principles of the Community Engagement Charter (the Charter) are met, an evaluation of the engagement process for the Code Amendment is occurring. As part of this evaluation, you are invited to complete a survey via this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YWVGL63
This survey will be open until 9 March 2022 to enable you to consider the outcomes of the engagement before evaluating the engagement.
A final Engagement Report and Code Amendment Report will be made publicly available here following the evaluation of the engagement process:
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.
YS Super Investments Pty Ltd (Proponent) is proposing to rezone the land located on the south-east corner of Main North Road and Nottage Terrace, specifically 1-5 Nottage Terrace, Medindie and 43 Main North Road, Medindie (Affected Area). The Affected Area is approximately 7,300 square metres in size and contains the Scotty’s Motel, two detached dwellings and vacant land.
The Affected Area is currently zoned Suburban Business and Established Neighbourhood and is subject to a number of Overlays and Technical Numeric Variations (TNVs). The Affected Area forms part of the Main North Road and Nottage Terrace intersection, which is a prominent location in Metropolitan Adelaide and provides a gateway to North Adelaide and the Adelaide CBD, with Main North Road providing a major transport corridor between the CBD and the north of Adelaide. The land immediately opposite the Affected Area and located on the western side of Main North Road and northern side of Nottage Terrace is zoned Urban Corridor (Business). The proposed rezoning seeks to zone the Affected Area as Urban Corridor (Business) consistent with the other parcels of land located on the intersection.
The rezoning will provide for future development of the Affected Area, including by way of mixed use development comprising commercial and medium density residential development consistent with anticipated future development of other parcels located on the Main North Road and Nottage Terrace intersection. The rezoning also enables the development potential of the Affected Area to be recognised in relation to both land use and built form that respects the prominence of the Affected Area.
The rezoning also ensures that impacts of future development on adjoining land located in the Established Neighbourhood Zone will be appropriately managed through development policy that mitigates impacts of future development at interface areas.
This rezoning is consistent with key objectives of the State Planning Policies and will implement key targets of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide and 2020-2024: Living in the Town of Walkerville a strategic community plan by providing opportunities for increased housing diversity and commercial and businesses uses that will utilise and strengthen the existing transport corridors, appropriately respond to and mitigate impacts of future development on interface areas and strengthen connections to North Adelaide and the Adelaide CBD.
The District Council of Streaky Bay is proposing a Code Amendment which seeks to rezone 13 hectares of land identified as Lot 615 Loveshack Route, Streaky Bay, from the Deferred Urban Zone to the Neighbourhood Zone. The rezoning of the land will allow for low density residential development that provides housing options within the Streaky Bay Township.
This rezoning will implement a recommendation arising from the Streaky Bay Township Master Plan, adopted in 2010, which recommended the rezoning of this land to ‘Residential’ as a ‘high priority’.
