Planning the future of Aldinga is now one step closer
Renewal SA is leading the Structure Plan process of more than 94 hectares of land in Aldinga, which gives consideration to future development and infrastructure for Adelaide’s southern suburbs.
As part of this process, a Draft Structure Plan is now available to view online and in person at community drop-in sessions.
Renewal SA Acting Chief Executive Mark Devine said the Draft Aldinga Structure Plan is a step closer in planning for the future development of the land at Aldinga.
“Community feedback will help ensure that the Draft Structure Plan results in a well-planned extension to the Aldinga community,” Mr Devine said.
“The Preliminary Structure Plan attracted an excellent response and a number of changes have been made to reflect the stakeholder and community feedback received.”
A number of responses sought to maintain the open character within the northern triangle and the Draft Structure Plan now proposes that part of this land is used for open space.
There was support for a neighbourhood park with suggestions to incorporate a ‘chain of ponds’ (wetlands) as well as a desire for local parks to be spread through the residential area.
Based on community and stakeholder feedback, provision for a potential future centrally located rail station has been included in the Draft Structure Plan. A central rail station would be ideal to be in close proximity to schools, existing and future residential population.
The land owned by the Urban Renewal Authority is bound by Main South Road to the east, Aldinga Beach Road to the south, How Road to the West and Quinliven Road and Port Road to the north.
Part of the land is a location for the future Aldinga birth to year 12 school, which is expected to be open for the 2022 school year.
Land has been identified for infrastructure including the rail corridor, rail station, Main South Road Duplication and the new school. The remaining land is expected to comprise of a mix of uses and a variety of housing choices for the community.
The land is currently zoned ‘Deferred Urban’ and located within the urban boundary defined in the 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide. The complete Structure Plan is expected to be completed by mid-2019 and will form the basis to rezone the land from Deferred Urban.
A Stakeholder Group comprising the City of Onkaparinga, Department for Education, Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and Renewal SA is overseeing the Structure Plan process.
