About the project

Located 11 kilometres to the west of the CBD, the area bounded by this project contains a high proportion of SA Housing Trust-owned houses that are of older construction, expensive to maintain and do not meet today’s lifestyle and needs of the community.

The Seaton Demonstration Project aims to rejuvenate the area and create a place where people want to live, work and play.

Renewal SA, in partnership with the SA Housing Authority, will deliver this revitalisation. It is proposed that the new mix of housing will include 113 new homes in total with more than 40% offered as affordable housing, nearly triple the amount required in new developments. In addition, more than 15% of homes will be allocated to social housing.

Objectives

Urban renewal has a significant impact on the community, from a social, economic and environmental perspective.

This project will demonstrate how diverse housing design provides greater housing choices, improved housing infrastructure, integrated planned open spaces, revived streetscapes and overall improved neighbourhood amenities.

The project area, which is bounded by Matthews Avenue in the north, Lark Avenue in the east, Glenburnie Street in the south and Frederick Road in the west, will deliver 113 new residences made up of vacant land market sales, house and land packages, affordable homes and social housing outcomes, as well as 2.74 ha of landscaped reserves.

In the future, further opportunities for urban renewal in a broader Seaton Study Area bounded by Frederick Road in the west, Glenburnie Street in the south, Tapleys Hill Road in the east and West Lakes Boulevard in the north could be considered.

Stakeholders and community

Renewal SA held two engagement sessions on in June 2021 for local community to give their feedback and ideas for the design of a reserve in the Seaton Demonstration Project area and share their views on the potential renewal of the broader area.
