About the project

More than 600 new homes will be delivered across two land parcels to the east and west of Lovelock Drive in what will be a significant infill project to transform 22 hectares of vacant land into a burgeoning community, close to amenities, including Colonnades Shopping Centre, Noarlunga TAFE, Noarlunga Hospital and Noarlunga Railway Station to make them more accessible.

The new community will be delivered in partnership between Renewal SA and the SA Housing Authority.

The master plan proposes a mix of dwellings including house and land packages and vacant land for sale, 15% affordable housing, social housing, affordable rentals via Community Housing Provider partnerships and 12.5% new public open space. New housing, new infrastructure and in particular quality open public open space and streetscapes with an extensive tree canopy, will create high-quality neighbourhood amenity.

Chief among the development’s objectives will be demonstrating a commitment to sustainability in the planning, design, and delivery of the development, and to provide housing that responds to future climate needs. A target of 5-star accrediting Greenstar Community’s rating through the Green Building Council of Australia will also be sought.

Project progress and status

The purposefully designed community, which will become home to approximately 1,200 residents, will be delivered over the next seven to ten years.

A minimum of 12.5% of the project site will be dedicated to open space, and strong urban design guidelines will assist in the establishment of a significant tree canopy. Careful consideration will also be given to the steep topography of the land, to enable enhanced stormwater management, water-sensitive urban design, recreation, and biodiversity benefits across green space.

Stakeholders and community

Renewal SA will engage with all relevant stakeholders to ensure master planning for the residential development thoughtfully considers these neighbouring community assets, and that any interfaces and connections are designed in a co-ordinated way that enhances the overall flow and use of the space.
