Port Adelaide Centre Renewal Part 1 amendment

Current status

The Minister for Planning has split the amendment into two parts:

  1. Port Adelaide Centre Renewal Part 1 DPA
  2. Port Adelaide Centre Renewal Part 2 DPA.

The Port Adelaide Centre Renewal Part 1 DPA (9.0 MB PDF) was approved by the Minister for Planning by notice in the South Australian Government Gazette on 9 April 2015.

The Port Adelaide Centre Renewal Part 2 DPA relates to Cruickshank's Corner Policy Area for which a targeted policy review and investigations are currently underway.

Purpose of the amendment

Part 1 of the amendment proposes changes to planning policies to support the revitalisation of Port Adelaide's centre and help create a more vibrant and prosperous Port community.

The changes introduce new and updated planning policies within the Regional Centre Zone and re-zone some land within the Industry Zone, as shown on the Port Adelaide Enfield Development Plan. These changes reflect the strategic and master planning directions identified under the Port Adelaide Renewal Project. The release of this DPA was concurrent with the release of the Port Adelaide Renewal Project Precinct Plan by Renewal SA.

The policy changes include new maximum building heights of three to five storeys across the Regional Centre Zone (excluding Cruickshank's Corner Policy Area) and a review of land uses in some areas in order to support a contemporary mixed use urban environment.

Area affected by the amendment

The community information sheet (3.6 MB PDF) included a map of the site and also provided details about the proposed amendment and the amendment process.

The development plan affected is the Port Adelaide Enfield Council development plan.

Consultation process

Consultation on Ministerial DPAs is conducted by the Development Policy Advisory Committee (DPAC), an independent statutory committee which provides advice to the Minister for Planning.

Public consultation on the amendment closed on 18 March 2014. A public meeting was held on 8 April 2014.
