Renewal SA will accelerate its planning and infrastructure investigations for a 1000-home community in Adelaide’s south following the successful code amendment to rezone land at Hackham.

The 68-hectare parcel bordering Main South Road will now be master-planned to deliver a mix of housing options, including a minimum of 15% affordable housing, after being transferred from Rural to Master Planned Neighbourhood zoning.

The development will form part of a wider 235-hectare land release that will see a further 1000 homes constructed on neighbouring private holdings across Hackham and Old Noarlunga.

Collectively they will address an immediate need for further land supply and housing south of Adelaide to cater for a growing population. The land sits within the Urban Growth Boundary.

A development partner will be sought by Renewal SA to transform its land into a sustainable, industry-leading community, taking into consideration neighbouring development to ensure consistency, good design outcomes and the appropriate connections and amenities across the suburb.

Renewal SA will now work with all relevant government agencies, adjacent landowners, the City of Onkaparinga and key service providers to refine detailed infrastructure requirements in a coordinated approach to ensure the new community is well serviced from the outset.

The hillside parcel at Hackham enjoys sweeping views across to the ocean and down towards the Onkaparinga River. It is also close to key transit connections including the Southern Expressway for easy access to the city and the Seaford Meadows Train Station on the Seaford rail line.

Renewal SA Chief Executive Chris Menz said the rezoning allowed for development to occur in a logical and sequential way.

A development timeline for Renewal SA’s land and its preceding market process will be finalised after the co-ordination of infrastructure services is complete, but it is anticipated construction on the first homes could begin as early as next year.

Prices for allotments will be determine at a later date.

Meanwhile, the state government announced this week it has identified sites at Dry Creek, Concordia and Sellicks Beach for re-zoning, which would deliver 23,700 new homes to the South Australian market when combined with Hackham. These land releases would provide more than double the number of allotments created in Mount Barker in 2011 and more than four times the number delivered at Mawson Lakes in the early 2000s.

This additional supply is expected to provide homes for more than 50,000 people.

“Renewal SA will continue accelerating our work in land rezoning with infrastructure arrangements will ensure we can continue to provide land supply in key areas across a range of housing types,” Mr Menz said.
