This purposefully designed community will include affordable and social housing and will explore ways to enhance pedestrian connections to nearby infrastructure and services, as well as an open space network that provides a better connection to surrounding amenities.

About the project

Approximately 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 under-utilised space into a burgeoning new community, close to amenities.

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

Chief among the development’s objectives will be exploring ways to enhance pedestrian connections to nearby infrastructure and services, including Colonnades Shopping Centre, Noarlunga TAFE, Noarlunga Hospital and Noarlunga Railway Station to make them more accessible.

An open space network that provides better connection to the surrounding amenities will also be a key priority.

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 and feature more than 15% affordable housing, including purchase options and affordable rentals via Community Housing Provider partnerships, plus at least 80 new social housing dwellings.

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 are designed in a co-ordinated way that enhances the overall flow and use of the space.
