Tonsley Park Redevelopment amendment

Current status

The Tonsley Park Redevelopment and General Section development plan amendment (DPA) - (3.6 MB PDF) was approved by the Minister for Planning on 5 December 2013.

Purpose of the amendment

The proposed DPA is to guide the redevelopment and revitalisation of the former Mitsubishi Motors manufacturing and assembly site (known as Tonsley Park) to create a diverse and vibrant urban environment with a mix of employment and education/training activities and a range of housing.

The development plan affected is the Marion Council development plan.

The DPA also proposes to amend the General Section of the development plan to guide development both within the site and across the council and to ensure consistency with the updated South Australian Planning Policy Library.

Area affected by the amendment

The area affected by the proposed rezoning is the site of the former Mitsubishi Motors plant, located between the Tonsley railway line and South Road. The community information sheet - (1.4 MB PDF) includes a map of the site.

The proposed changes to the General Section of the development plan affect the entire Marion Council area.

Public consultation on the amendment closed on 13 March 2013. A public meeting was held on 26 March 2013.
