Playford Urban Growth Areas and General Section amendments
The Playford Urban Growth Areas (Angle Vale, Playford North Extension and Virginia) and General Sections amendment was split into four parts by the Minister for Planning:
- Playford Urban Growth Areas (Virginia) and General Section Amendments DPA (Part 1) - - approved and gazetted on 19 December 2013
- Playford Urban Growth Areas (Angle Vale and Playford North Extension) DPA (Part 2) - - approved and gazetted on 30 January 2014
- Playford Urban Growth Areas (Playford North Extension - Munno Para Downs) (Part 3) - - approved and gazetted on 6 March 2014
- Playford Urban Growth Areas (Virginia, Angle Vale and Playford North Extension) (Part 4) - - approved and gazetted on 10 December 2015.
Approval of Part 4 now completes the rezoning of land in the Playford Urban Growth Area for urban purposes. Land zoned 'Deferred Urban' through the DPA can still be considered for future urban use but only subject to a further rezoning process through separately initiated Development Plan Amendment and on the basis of agreed infrastructure contributions.
Purpose of the amendment
The development plan amendments (DPAs) are part of a larger structure plan proposed under the Playford growth project.
They provide for zoning changes to accommodate future population and employment growth in the cities of Playford and Salisbury. This re-zoning also will be implemented through the Greater Edinburgh Parks Employment Lands DPA.
The DPAs and the structure plan allow for an additional 100,000 people and 38,000 houses over the next 30 years. They indicate where new housing, commercial, industrial and community land uses will be located, and what infrastructure and services are needed to support them.
