Kilburn and Blair Athol

The long-range plan for the urban renewal of Kilburn and Blair Athol is part of the state government’s Renewing Our Streets and Suburbs initiative, which is renewing South Australian Housing Trust properties built before 1968 and located within 10 kilometres of the Adelaide CBD.

Urban renewal plan

A high level framework that provides a robust and flexible guiding strategy for the long-term renewal of the Kilburn and Blair Athol area and the transitions between industrial and residential properties are planned. The framework and strategy will build on previous studies and intentions for the area to provide a guide for creating a great place to live, work, play and visit.

Progress of plan

The urban renewal plan is being prepared by land, resource and infrastructure development consultancy Fyfe on behalf of Renewal SA over a six month period.

It will be undertaken in three stages:

Community consultation

Community feedback was gathered on options for future development in Kilburn and Blair Athol at two community drop-in sessions held in mid-July 2016 and an online survey. 

This engagement with community in the area builds on previous comments and ideas provided by local stakeholders on ways to continue improving the neighbourhoods, particularly in reference to the type of housing built, location of parks and reserves, and accessibility to public transport, services and the city.

Current local residents identifed what they valued about the area as well as what they liked to see changed, and shared their ideas for the future of the neighbourhood.

Community feedback will be summarised and posted on our website as early as possible to help inform the ongoing plans for the long-term transformation of the area. 

Renewal SA and the City of Port Adelaide Enfield will work together to identify ways of implementing the redevelopment. This would be staged over the next 15 to 20 years. 

The community will be kept informed about the ongoing planning and redevelopment of the Kilburn and Blair Athol area.
