Devon Park Residential Amendment

Current status

The Devon Park Residential Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (3.6 MB PDF) was on public consultation from 25 July 2019 to 19 September 2019 and is currently under consideration by the Minister for Planning.

Purpose of the amendment

The Minister for Planning is proposing to amend the Development Plan for the City of Port Adelaide Enfield to rezone a site at Devon Park (at the intersection of Belford Avenue and Bolingbroke Avenue) from its existing light industry activities to support medium density residential development.

Entech Electronics, which currently occupies the site, is relocating to an alternative site that is more compatible with its future manufacturing directions. This has provided an opportunity to amend the local planning policy framework to enable a land use that is more appropriate to its residential context. On this basis, the DPA proposes a planning policy framework that supports low to medium density residential development that can also take advantage of the availability of public transport, nearby parks, schools, shops and services. In this respect, the DPA will implement key targets of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide.

Area affected by the amendment

The community information sheet (2.2 MB PDF) includes a map of the area affected and also provides details about the proposed amendment and the amendment process.
