Aldinga Suburban Neighbourhood amendment

Current status

The Aldinga Suburban Neighbourhood Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (9.6 MB PDF) was on public consultation from Thursday 28 January 2021 to Thursday 25 March 2021 and is currently under consideration by the Minister for Planning and Local Government.

Purpose of the amendment

The Minister for Planning and Local Government is proposing to rezone land at Aldinga to enable a diversity of low to medium density housing and community development. The affected area consists of approximately 90 hectares of land that is zoned Deferred Urban and is bound by Quinliven Road, Main South Road, Aldinga Beach Road and How Road.

The land forms part of a State strategic land-banking program which has held the land for future development. The Minister has now determined that the demand for housing in southern Adelaide warrants the release of this land for development.

The DPA seeks to provide an appropriate policy framework to guide this master planned development. The land is proposed to be rezoned from Deferred Urban to Master-Planned Neighbourhood Zone.

The DPA also proposes a streamlined approval process for development that meets specific, pre-approved criteria through a ‘Building Envelope Plan’ with council as the planning authority.

Note that existing development within the affected area, including Cardijn College, the new Aldinga B-12 School and the Aldinga CFS, although within the area affected by the rezoning, do not form part of the development of the site.

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.

Area affected by the amendment

The Community Information Sheet (1.0 MB PDF) includes a map of the area affected and also provides details about the proposed amendment and the amendment process.

The DPA affects land within the Onkaparinga Council Development Plan.
