The Aldinga site represents a significant development opportunity that will support projected population growth in one of the fastest growing regions in the State.


About Aldinga

Located in the City of Onkaparinga, Aldinga has been through a strong period of growth and is now a thriving township with increasing housing demand.

It is envisaged that future development of the site will support the long-term appeal and growth of Aldinga while demonstrating exceptional sustainable design principles and upholding the regions unique identity and sense of place.

Renewal SA has engaged extensively with the local community to bring this superbly-positioned land parcel to market.

Community engagement

Renewal SA is committed to ensuring key stakeholders, including the community are engaged as part of the planning process, and have already engaged extensively in relation to the Aldinga Deferred Urban Land Structure Plan and the Aldinga Suburban Neighbourhood Development Plan Amendment (DPA).

The Structure Plan which was managed by Renewal SA and preceded the DPA engagement, was 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 also prepared the Aldinga Framework Plan to assist Council and the community to provide input into the Aldinga Structure Plan.

Project Progress and Status

On Tuesday, 14 June 2022, the Government of South Australia elected to reserve a rail corridor for the potential future extension of the Seaford Rail Line through to Aldinga Beach Road, Aldinga.

This impacted a process Renewal SA was running to secure a development partner for a 60ha site at Aldinga to deliver a highly sustainable development. The reserved corridor runs directly through the earmarked land parcel, removing a large portion of the developable land.

As a result, Renewal SA has terminated its Request for Proposal process for the Aldinga development.

Renewal SA will work with the Department of Infrastructure and Transport regarding requirements for the reserved rail corridor before embarking on a new market process for the remaining land.

Renewal SA is committed to finding ways to support projected population growth in the southern suburbs and a timeline for a new market process will be announced in due course.

Cultural Heritage

The Kaurna Miyurna (Kaurna people) are the traditional owners of the Land and Renewal SA is committed to involving the Kaurna Miyurna people in the planning, design and development of the project.

The Aldinga area is known to the Kaurna Miyurna people as ‘Ngaltingga’. Ngaltingga sustained Kaurna Miyurna for many thousands of years and there are several archaeological sites, objects and remains that have been recorded. The Washpool (or Wangkondanangko, meaning ‘possum place’), Willunga Creek and the Aldinga Scrub are particularly important places.

Renewal SA has commissioned an Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Survey that includes several recommendations that Renewal SA and the successful development partner will implement.

Renewal SA will require that the Developer work collaboratively with Kaurna representatives to create culturally and naturally sympathetic spaces, particularly in relation to water management. This may take the form of natural spaces with native plantings, cultural markers and informational and educational signage as well as culturally appropriate art installations.
