About the project
The 407 Prospect Road, Blair Athol renewal project was part of the state government’s Renewing our Streets and Suburbs initiative.
Objectives and outcomes
Renewal SA’s key project objective for the site was to create more suitable homes and improve the availability of social housing. In addition, Renewal SA aimed to deliver a development that:
- Maximised use of the site through good urban design, achieving increased density while integrating successfully with the surrounding neighbourhood.
- Delivered well-designed contemporary housing, with energy-efficient outcomes and affordable living opportunities for residents.
Stakeholders and community
In 2017, Renewal SA invited residents near to the property to attend a drop-in session to view the proposed plans and provide comments for consideration by the State Coordinator General for the redevelopment of the site.
Feedback gathered from the drop-in session as well as written submissions received from the community were compiled into an engagement report, which was considered by the State Coordinator General as part of the planning approval process.
