Code Amendments

The Planning and Design Code (the Code) is the cornerstone of South Australia’s new planning system.

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.

The Code Amendment process includes a number of steps which must be undertaken before any changes to zoning or policy can be implemented. Broadly the process involves:

Initiation, Initiated, On Consultation, Consultation Completed, Finalised (approved or refused), Parliamentary Review

Fees have been introduced to cover the administrative costs of processing amendments to the Planning and Design Code. These are set out under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure (Fees) Notice 2021 (PDF, 121 KB).

The fees are aimed at recouping costs incurred by the Department associated with any Code Amendments that are commercial in nature from private proponents (land owners), or councils and state agencies that are acting on behalf of private proponents.

No processing fees will be charged where a council or state agency initiates a Code Amendment that will result in a community benefit (i.e. a Code Amendment recognising a new State Heritage listing).

The overarching principle underpinning the processing fees is that of “user pays” to recognise the substantial commercial benefits that may be achieved by an applicant seeking a Code Amendment that increases the value of their land.

The Code Amendment fee structure has four elements which are paid in stages as the Code Amendment progresses:

  • Lodgement Fee - $5,500
    The Lodgement Fee is charged to all proponent-initiated Code Amendments at the initiated stage. This fee covers the administrative oversight required by the Department including evaluation of the proposal, consulting with council, reporting to the State Planning Commission, and updating the PlanSA portal.
  • Consultation Fee - $8,700
    The Consultation Fee is charged when a proponent submits consultation instructions to the Department. It covers the preparation of mapping on the Portal, establishment of the online consultation form and publication of the consultation on the Portal page.  It also includes a compliance check of conditions if placed on initiation.
  • Determination Fee - $8,400
    The Determination Fee recovers the administrative costs associated with the final evaluation of the proposal including assessment against the Engagement Plan and Community Engagement Charter, a review of mapping and policy, resolution of any outstanding state interest matters (i.e. agency referrals), compliance checks and administrative functions associated with Commission advice and determination of the Amendment.
  • Implementation Fee - $9,800
    The Implementation Fee is charged on approval of the Code Amendment and covers the administrative functions required to implement the Code Amendment and bring it into effect, including deployment into the Planning and Design Code, the SA Property and Planning Atlas and the PlanSA portal.

Code Amendment Processing Fees commence on 25 November 2021 and are payable for Code Amendments already in progress or initiated after this date. Where a Code Amendment is already in progress, the fee structure will come into effect from the next milestone.

Initiated

The Minister for Planning and Local Government (or the State Planning Commission in the case of Commission-led Code Amendments) has agreed to Initiate a Code Amendment. This means that agreement has been reached for a Designated Entity (i.e. the person / body responsible for leading the process) to investigate changes to the Planning and Design Code.

The ‘Proposal to Initiate’ outlines the scope of the proposed changes, and the investigations to be completed. In addition to the investigations and consultation requirements outlined in a Proposal to Initiate, the Minister may apply additional conditions which the Designated Entity must comply with when undertaking a Code Amendment, which are detailed in the ‘Letter from the Minister to Designated Entity approving the initiation with conditions’.

Public consultation on these Code Amendments has not started yet.

Code Amendments listed under this heading are currently being prepared for public consultation. This step might include undertaking investigations, early discussions with key stakeholders and drafting of documentation such as an Engagement Plan, fact sheets and the like.

You can find out further information about each Code Amendment by clicking on the drop down boxes below – contact details are also provided for each Code Amendment should you wish to speak to someone directly.

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

Initiation approved by the Commission on 5 October 2021.

Overview:

The Code Amendment seeks to rezone approximately 200 hectares of land located along Hepenstal Road, Gates Road, River Heights Rise, Church Hill Road, Patapinda Road, Piggott Range Road and Main South Road at Hackham and a small portion of Old Noarlunga in the City of Onkaparinga. This has an estimated potential yield of 2,000 dwellings. The affected area is largely zoned Rural but contains approximately 13.3 hectares of land that is zoned Employment. The proposed zone for the affected area is the Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone. Subject to investigations in relation to demand for a new Activity Centre, the application of the Local Activity Centre Zone or Emerging Activity Subzone will also be considered.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 23 July 2021.

Contact Details:
Jim Gronthos, City of Charles Sturt
T: (08) 8408 1111

Overview:

The proposed Code Amendment will investigate the potential rezoning of the Affected Area involving land identified as 406-412 and 414-450 Findon Road, Kidman Park and 5 and 7 Valetta Road, Kidman Park. The Affected Area includes the former Metcash site as well as two additional land parcels on Valetta Road. The proposed Code Amendment will investigate a rezoning of the Affected Area from its current Strategic Employment Zone to a Zone(s) that will facilitate mixed use development in the form of residential uses and commercial opportunities. The proposed Code Amendment seeks to implement key targets of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide by providing opportunity for increased housing diversity in proximity to established community infrastructure and services.

The investigations to inform the draft Code Amendment will be undertaken over the next few months, including traffic assessment, stormwater management, environmental assessment, utility infrastructure capacity, built form and desired land uses. Once prepared, a draft Code Amendment will become available for community comment through a statutory consultation process.

Initiation approved by the Minister on 14 October 2021.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in March/April 2022.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
T & J Viney Property Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Grazio Maiorano – Director, URPS
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.

Consultation is anticipated to commence in February 2022.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
City of Marion

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

Overview:

The City of Marion is proposing to amend the planning policy relating to land within the Suburban 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 area was previously covered (under the former Development Plan) by the Residential Racecourse Zone, which 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.

The South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) will soon construct additional stables within the adjacent racecourse property (corner of Bray Street and Morphett Road). It is understood that a number of stable owners in the subject area are considering relocating into these new stables 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, and into the racecourse, would most certainly result in a safer environment.

Community consultation is anticipated to commence in March/April 2022.

T: (08) 7231 1889

Overview:

Pierce Matthews Pty Ltd, Buckingham Arms Hotel Pty Ltd, GBS Café Pty Ltd and Seymews Nominees Pty Ltd is proposing to rezone 6,200m2 of land at 1 Walkerville Terrace, Gilberton, to facilitate development of the site for residential and complementary mixed-use purposes.

Summary of the Code Amendment

Designated Entity:
Adelaide Hebrew Congregation Inc, Belljo Pty Ltd and Flemington Street Pty Ltd

Contact Details:
Anna Deller-Coombs
T: (08) 8333 7999

Overview:

Adelaide Hebrew Congregation Inc., Belljo Pty Ltd & Flemington Street Pty Ltd propose an amendment to the Planning and Design Code for land located at 13 Flemington Street, Glenside. The land forming part of this proposal 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 located in proximity of the existing Glenside redevelopment, other residential activities and is conveniently located in relation to public transport and services.

The lands current zoning as Community Facilities does not enable the realisation of this potential. As such, the Code Amendment seeks to rezone 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.

In addition, the Code Amendment will seek to remove the State Heritage Overlay currently effecting the property. This has been proposed as its application over the property is an error which has arisen in the transition of the former City of Burnside Development Plan to the Planning and Design Code.

No code amendment items found

Consultation completed

The engagement process for these Code Amendments has now been completed. The Designated Entity will review and summarise all submissions received.

At this stage, the Designated Entity may also need to undertake further investigations or meet with government agencies to resolve identified issues.

T: (08) 8333 7999

Overview:

The Code Amendment proposes to rezone land at 19-29 Glynburn Road, Glynde (the Affected Area) in order to establish a more supportive planning policy framework for retail development. Currently, the zoning of the Affected Area does not reflect existing land uses and is discouraging development activity.

The Code Amendment will unlock the development potential of the Affected Area through the establishment of a consistent policy framework as expressed in the Suburban Activity Centre Zone. The Suburban Activity Centre Zone would allow for shops of a range of sizes as well as offices, entertainment, health and recreation related uses. This includes the possibility of developing a mid-size supermarket (~2000m2) on the land.

In addition, the Code Amendment will establish a better land use transition between the Affected Area and the existing residential properties to the north which will assist with the management of interface issues such as noise.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 6 September 2021 to 18 October 2021.

Overview:

ACP Mooringe Pty Ltd is proposing to rezone 1.2 hectares of disused industrial land at 65-73 Mooringe Avenue, Plympton, to facilitate development of the site for residential purposes. The land has undergone significant remediation to ensure it is suitable for residential use.

The land is currently zoned Strategic Employment and was formerly used by Boral for industrial purposes. It is proposed to rezone the land Housing Diversity Neighbourhood, which envisages medium density housing to support a range of needs and lifestyles within easy reach of a diversity of services and facilities.

The subject land has the potential to be a key strategic infill site, offering the opportunity for increased density and a diverse range of housing options, providing affordability and choice to better meet the changing needs of the community.

Rezoning of the site supports the urban regeneration and housing supply goals of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide (2017 Update) by utilising established urban areas for residential infill development and encouraging population growth in proximity to community infrastructure and services.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 19 July 2021 to 26 August 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 Suburban Activity Centre Zone would be decreased in size and be located on the southern side of Riverlea Boulevard. The proposed Suburban Activity Centre Zone will have 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” has been prepared by the Walker Corporation (the Designated Entity) to alter the zoning of the land within the Suburban Activity Centre Zone and is now available for community feedback.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 6 September 2021 to 1 October 2021.

Overview:

The proposed Local Design Review Code Amendment (the Amendment) seeks to amend the Planning and Design Code (the Code) to give effect to the Local Design Review Scheme (the Scheme).

The Scheme was established by the Minister for Planning and Local Government under section 121 of the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 and came into effect on 1 July 2021. The Scheme provides a consistent state-wide approach for councils to establish their own design panels and provide Design Review for locally assessed development proposals.

The proposed Amendment would enable a council to specify certain classes of development to be eligible for Local Design Review in their area. This process would occur when that council registers to participate in the Scheme. Proponents of the eligible classes of development will then be able to apply to that council to participate in Local Design Review and seek design advice on their development proposal.

The proposed Amendment was informed through pre-engagement workshops with local government staff and industry representatives, and the extensive engagement undertaken to develop the Scheme.

All submissions will be considered by the State Planning Commission to determine if the proposed Amendment is suitable for adoption, or if changes should be made. Submissions will be published on the PlanSA portal after this consultation closes and be summarised in an Engagement Report.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from 12 August 2021 to 27 September 2021.

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.

Overview:

The South Australian Government is progressing infrastructure initiatives of state significance in Adelaide’s Riverbank Precinct including the development of the proposed new Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

A review is proposed to ensure the current zoning and policy is appropriate and provides the strategic framework to guide future development. It is proposed to:

  • Rezone land west of the Royal Adelaide Hospital from the Adelaide Park Lands Zone to City Riverbank Zone (Health Subzone) to support the development of the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
  • Rezone land west of Montefiore Rd from Adelaide Park Lands Zone to City  Riverbank Zone (Entertainment Subzone) and a portion of land already in City Riverbank Zone from Health Subzone to Entertainment Subzone. This will support the development of entertainment-related uses, such as an arena.
  • Rezone land from the Adelaide Park Lands Zone to City Riverbank Zone (Innovation Subzone) to more appropriately reflect the land use and form of the existing Adelaide Botanic High School and its curtilage.
  • Apply a new Riverbank Subzone in the Adelaide Park Lands Zone to the southern and northern side of the River Torrens between Kintore Avenue and the Torrens Weir to accommodate small-scale development such as cafes and shops (both on-water and off-water) that contributes to the activation of the riverfront, in a way that protects the open landscaped character and heritage values of Elder Park.
  • Update the ‘Concept Plan 85 – City Riverbank’ within the Innovation Subzone to retain the important open space link from Frome Road to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
  • Make policy changes to support connections and linkages throughout the precinct.
  • Policy changes to support development of high quality and amenity.

The existing SAPOL Barracks, Kate Cocks Park and Old Adelaide Gaol form part of the land west of the railway corridor and includes important state heritage listed buildings such as the Old Adelaide Gaol. The Code Amendment will not alter either the state heritage listings and/or protections over this area.

Emily Nankivell, Future Urban
T: (08) 8221 5511

Overview:

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.

Public consultation on this Code Amendment was held from  9 August 2021 to 19 September 2021.
