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.
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.
The Urban Renewal Authority owned land is bounded 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.
It was purchased in 1989 as part of metropolitan Adelaide’s future land bank and is currently leased for cropping.
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.
Preliminary Structure Plan
On 5 March 2019, a briefing and workshop session was held with a wide range of local community groups and organisations in the lead up to broader community consultation on the Preliminary Structure Plan.
On 25 and 28 May 2019, community drop-in sessions were held to provide locals the opportunity to review and provide feedback on the Draft Structure Plan, as well as engage directly with Renewal SA and planning consultants Fyfe.
Over 94 hectares of land in the suburb of Aldinga will be a focus of a Structure Plan which will give consideration to future urban development and infrastructure for Adelaide’s southern suburbs, including the provision for rail corridors, Main South Road duplication and a potential new school.
