The Minister for Planning and Local Government is proposing to rezone two sites currently developed for light industry purposes at Payneham and Stepney to allow for residential and mixed use developments.

Both sites are currently zoned light industry which seeks the development of industrial and commercial activities. However, given that both sites are isolated industrial activities surrounded by residential development, they are no longer attractive for future industrial developments. It now appropriate to consider alternative zoning that seeks to minimise the impacts on the surrounding dwellings but also seek to promote economic outcomes that provide for housing diversity and choice, alongside service and public transport networks.

  • Site 1 (Payneham)

    This area consists of the former Schweppes factory at 382 Payneham Road, Payneham (now demolished) as well as the adjacent properties within the land bounded by Payneham Road, Thelma Street, Lewis Road and Ashbrook Avenue.

    The site is no longer considered an optimum location for industrial development given the proximity of residential and heritage development.

    The DPA proposes to rezone the land to Urban Corridor Zone – Business Policy Area which provides for a range of commercial / retail activities at the ground floor and medium density residential development above (to a maximum of five storeys).

  • Site 2 (Stepney)

    The Otto’s Timber and Joinery business is proposing to relocate to a site more suited to its operational requirements, providing a valuable opportunity to rezone the land to better reflect its context. The affected area includes five adjacent residential dwellings that are currently zoned Light Industry or District Commercial Zone, as well as one site owned by Otto’s in the Local Centre (St Peters) Zone.

    The DPA process is proposing to rezone the land owned by Otto’s and the residential property fronting Bennett Street to Urban Corridor Zone – Transit Living Policy Area which enables medium density residential development (up to three storeys) together with small scale non-residential activities at the ground floor level. Affected residential properties fronting Ann Street are proposed to be included in the adjoining Residential Historic (Conservation) Zone – Stepney Policy Area.

These rezonings 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.

Closed 12 November 2020

The Minister for Planning and Local Government is proposing to rezone land at Oaklands Park with a new medium density residential development that will support the needs of our diverse community.

There is an urgent need to replace the aging housing stock and associated infrastructure in the Oaklands Park area with modern dwellings that cater for the requirements of the community. The redevelopment project proposes to replace approximately 255 SA Housing Authority properties one-for-one with new, high quality, fit-for-purpose dwellings. Surplus land will be developed to provide for an estimated 425 additional dwellings that will be put to market for private, social and affordable housing opportunities, creating a mixed tenure community that will help support our growing population. The master planning process (which is separate from the DPA process) provides for upgrades of road, water, power and open space infrastructure, including the Rajah Reserve, to provide improved service and facilities for the community.

The DPA seeks to provide an appropriate policy framework to guide this master planned redevelopment.  As such, land immediately south of the Warradale Barracks that is currently zoned Residential – Regeneration Policy Area 16 and Medium Density Policy Area 12 is proposed to be rezoned to the Urban Renewal Neighbourhood Zone – Master Planned Renewal Policy Area 25, per the attached map.

The DPA also proposes a streamlined approval process for development that meets specific, pre-approved criteria via a ‘Building Envelope Plan’ with Council as the planning authority (see Development Approval Pathways).

Note that privately owned properties within the affected area do not form part of the redevelopment, but will be affected by the rezoning.

These rezonings 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.

The Department, on behalf of the Minister for Planning, wants to hear your views on a proposed Linear Park (Grange to Semaphore Park). This Linear Park incorporates a proposed Coast Park shared-use pathway.

The Minister for Planning is proposing to establish a Linear Park under the Linear Parks Act 2006. The objectives of this Act are to:

  1. establish, maintain and preserve linear parks as world-class assets to be used and enjoyed as public parks for the benefit of present and future generations
  2. promote the use and enjoyment of linear parks by the community
  3. facilitate the use of linear parks for exercise and outdoor activities.

This project focuses on the 4.8 km section of proposed Linear Park between Grange and Semaphore Park. As the area is divided by the Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve a two stage approach has been adopted for its further investigation and consultation:

  • Stage One (‘North’) - The establishment of a linear park between Third Avenue, Semaphore Park to the edge of Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve – out for consultation now.
  • Stage Two (‘South’) - The establishment of a linear park or parks between the edge of Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve to Terminus Street, Grange - this section will be released separately for consultation in the future.

Proposed Coast Park shared-use pathway

Coast Park is a State Government initiative which aims to establish a continuous 70 km coastal shared use path (for pedestrians and cyclists) along the metropolitan coastline. The aim is to improve community access and enjoyment of our beautiful beaches.

Coast Park has been progressively implemented by State Government and local councils since 1992 and the section between Grange and Semaphore Park is one of the few remaining links still to complete.

Community engagement

The Minister for Planning is seeking your feedback on the proposed Linear Park (including the Coast Park shared-use path) for Stage One (‘North’). Feedback can be provided until COB Tuesday, 9 June 2020, by:

  • filling out the Registration, Feedback and Suggestions form
  • emailing the project team at dpti.communityrelations@sa.gov.au
  • calling 1300 794 880
  • writing to: Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure – Linear Park (Semaphore to Grange - Stage One), GPO Box 1533, ADELAIDE SA 5000

The People and Neighbourhoods Policy Discussion Paper (PDF, 11910 KB), written in partnership with Professor Emma Baker and Professor Jon Kellett of the University of Adelaide, looks at the key opportunities and challenges facing South Australia’s housing sector caused by changes in South Australia’s population. It looks at the trends and changes occurring in our suburbs, providing a snapshot in time of where we are now and an indication of what the future will look like.

Prior to the release of Phase Two and Phase Three of the Planning and Design Code (the Code), a number of documents were published in May 2019 that outlined the Commission’s policy position on Heritage and Character as well as Design in the new planning system. These documents describe how the new Code will protect our heritage and character places and how the planning system as a whole can elevate the role of design to achieve safe, functional, accessible, connected and sustainable neighbourhoods and towns. The documents are available for download below.

Since their release the Commission has been listening to community, council and industry feedback and identified a number of key improvements. These are outlined in the Commission’s People and Neighbourhoods Policy Discussion Paper released in September 2019 and included in the draft Planning and Design Code released for public consultation on 1 October 2019.

Our new State Planning Policies for South Australia emphasise the key role of planning in the establishment of energy infrastructure and the need to provide policies that allow for creative and innovative responses to energy demand and supply, while addressing potential impacts on communities and the environment.

Renewable technologies provide sources of energy that have much lower environmental impacts than conventional energy technologies. They play a crucial role in reducing global carbon emissions and the impacts of climate change, as well as helping to provide long-term energy security by lowering our reliance on non-renewables such as coal and gas.

Today, wind, solar and pumped-hydro are firmly established as the three main pillars of renewable energy supply.

South Australia is widely regarded as a national leader in the renewable energy sector, largely due to our enabling planning policy environment and natural conditions and landscape. In 2018, renewable energy generation from wind and solar sources reached 51.2% of total electricity generation. Previously, the Australian Energy Market Operator projected South Australia’s renewable power could account for 73% of the state’s total power consumption by 2020/21.

Existing planning policies now need to be updated to keep pace with new and more efficient energy infrastructure. The introduction of the Code provides the opportunity to update and improve upon our successful policies to reflect new forms of energy generation, storage and distribution and provide improved guidance regarding the intensity, location and impacts of these developments.

Formal public consultation on the draft Code, including the Commission’s proposed renewable energy policies, closed on February 2020.

State Planning Policies are a key instrument in the modernisation of our new planning system, the scope of which is described in the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016.

They represent the highest level of policy in our new planning system. They outline matters of importance to the state in land use planning, development and design and provide a state-wide framework that aims to enhance our liveability, sustainability and prosperity.

Importantly, the policies consider changes to how and where South Australians live and work; current and future trends in population growth; climate change; and other social and economic drivers.

As a statutory instrument under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016, the State Planning Policies outline the planning and design ambitions for South Australia and will guide both regional and metropolitan planning and development in the future. Your input has been used to develop the final draft which has been submitted to cabinet for endorsement.

The Character Preservation (Barossa Valley) Act 2012 and the Character Preservation (McLaren Vale) Act 2012 were reviewed in 2018 as required by legislation.

This legislation provides that the special character of the two districts is recognised, protected and enhanced while providing for the economic, physical and social wellbeing of the communities within the districts. It restricts the creation of additional residential development in the rural areas of the districts to halt urban sprawl to the north and south of Adelaide’s built-up area, thereby seeking to provide for continued viable farming and primary production activities.

The scope of the review involved an assessment of:

  • the family, social, economic and environmental impacts of the Act
  • the impact of the Act on the Councils within the district
  • any changes to the district as a result of the Act
  • any actions that have may have been undertaken to address any negative impacts of the Act.

The Department developed a discussion paper (PDF, 2584 KB) in consultation with affected councils and State Government agencies. Public consultation on this paper closed at 5.00 pm on 28 February 2018.

A total of 30 written submissions and 10 online feedback forms (PDF, 18349 KB) were received during the 4-month consultation phase from the local government sector, members of parliament, peak bodies, industry groups and individual community members.

Review Outcomes

As a result of the review and consultation process, four main recommendations are made. These are:

  1. Retain the legislation for the protection for the character preservation districts.

    The majority of people engaged in the review supported the legislation and its intention to protect the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. The report therefore recommends that it is retained.

  2. The State Planning Commission investigate the merit of the proposed amendments to the character preservation districts in the context of Greater Adelaide’s growth.

    A number of the submissions received during the consultation process proposed amendments to the boundary of the character preservation districts. While many of these proposals have merit, most require additional consultation with the community, further investigation, or in some cases a rezoning prior to any amendment to the legislated boundary. Accordingly, it is recommended that the State Planning Commission review the proposed amendments to the character preservation districts in the context of Greater Adelaide’s growth. Such a review could be completed in around 12 months and inform the Planning and Design Code and future land supply decisions.

  3. Introduce a statutory review process that provides for amendments to the boundaries of the character preservation districts.

    The character preservation districts are defined in both Acts by the plan deposited in the General Registry Office. As such, any amendments to the preservation district boundaries require an amendment to the relevant Act. This is different to the way the Environment and Food Production Areas (EFPAs) are reviewed under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (PDI Act). It is considered appropriate that amendments to both the character preservation district boundaries and the EFPA follow the same process. A Bill could be developed following a completion of a review by the State Planning Commission.

  4. Provide for greater consistency and clarity of policy within the character preservation districts in preparing the Planning and Design Code.It is recommended that the Commission seek to improve policies and processes as part of the Code development process, in particular, provide further clarity on the envisaged/desired primary production value-adding and tourism activities in the character preservation districts.

Conclusion

No immediate changes to the Acts will be pursued until the Commission has led a proper review and investigation into boundary adjustments, policy refinements and improved process to make such amendments.

The State Government initiated a wholesale review of car parking in local streets across metropolitan Adelaide and has worked closely with local councils to identify the causes of any parking problems and consider potential solutions.

We know there are many different factors which can result in parking problems on local streets. Hearing the views and experiences of local residents across the metropolitan area was a valuable part of this initiative.

What input was sought?

Feedback from local residents across the Adelaide metropolitan area was sought in the following areas:

  • experience of parking in your local streets
  • your own household’s car use and needs
  • improvements to make parking better around your home and your neighbourhood.

Community feedback was obtained via a ‘Your Say’ survey which ran for four weeks from 19 January to 16 February 2018 with 840 submissions received. Two community focus groups and a Car Parking Summit, attended by over 60 key stakeholders, was also held at the Adelaide Convention Centre in April 2018.

What were the results?

The feedback received clearly reflected the multi-dimensional nature of our streets with amenity, traffic, parking, walking, cycling and play amongst the key considerations.

This information will help us work with councils to consider potential solutions to parking problems and is being incorporated into the Integrated Movement Systems Discussion Paper scheduled for release in mid-2018.
