Renewal SA is responsible for identifying and consolidating sites for urban renewal activity and undertaking precinct planning.
We are currently working on preliminary investigations and planning activities on a range of key sites earmarked for potential urban renewal.
Some of the land within these key sites has been declared surplus to government requirements. These sites provide opportunities for private sector development and fulfill the urban infill objectives of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide.
We also work closely with Housing SA to identify neighbourhood scale urban renewal projects. At this time, two sites in particular are being considered for renewal at Woodville Gardens and Morphettville.
Part of our role is to enable attractive investment options for the private sector. We do this by creating planning certainty and addressing any significant infrastructure and site remediation risks that allow integrated and master planned developments to proceed.
Sites being considered for urban renewal including 70 hectares at Oakden and Gilles Plains, the former Caroma factory at Norwood and the eight hectare former Enfield High School. These sites represent some of the last remaining sizable government owned land parcels within the inner metropolitan areas north and east of the CBD.
