The land includes a site for a new birth-to-year-12 school to open ready for the 2022 school year.

The structure plan will ensure 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.

Site details

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 land south of Quinliven Road was rezoned on 24 June 2021 to the Aldinga Suburban Neighbourhood Code.

Community engagement

The Structure Plan has been 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.
