The land includes the site for a new birth-to-year-12 school to open ready for the 2022 school year, and is also the location of the railway corridor and terminus for a future rail extension from Seaford.

The structure plan will ensure that these significant infrastructure investments are coordinated and result in a well-planned extension to the Aldinga community.


What is a structure plan?

Structure plans are the next level of planning detail beneath the overarching 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide and guide how growth could occur in specific areas.

The Aldinga Structure Plan sets directions for future land use to accommodate projected population growth. At a high level it maps where residential, retail, commercial, industrial and community uses of land could be located and the infrastructure needed to support urban development.

Community engagement

Opportunities for community members to review, discuss and provide feedback on the structure plan will be available face-to-face at community drop-in sessions or using our online tool.

The Structure Plan will be prepared in line with the principles of the new Community Engagement Charter developed for and overseen by the State Planning Commission.

The City of Onkaparinga has also prepared the Aldinga Framework Plan to assist Council and the community to provide input into the Aldinga Structure Plan.
