The Seaton Demonstration Project bounded by Matthews Avenue in the north, Lark Avenue in the east, Glenburnie Street in the south and Frederick Road in the west, forms part of the state government’s commitment to the Our Housing Future strategy and revitalising government landholdings in areas originally developed in the post-war period by SA Housing Trust.
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.
About Seaton Demonstration Project
The Seaton Demonstration Project forms part of the State Government’s commitment building a better housing future for all South Australia and revitalising government landholdings in areas originally developed in the post-war period by SA Housing Trust.
The area 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.
It is proposed that the demonstration project 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 approximately 101 new dwellings, consisting of a mixture of affordable housing, land/ home packages and social housing. Included in the project will be a new landscaped reserve and a new road.
There will include a minimum of 30% affordable housing, which is double the amount required in new developments, additionally more than 15% of homes will be allocated to social housing.
Urban renewal has a significant impact on the community socially, economically and environmentally and 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 amenity.
Project Progress and Status
Proposed timelines for the Seaton Demonstration Project are as follows:
Demolition commencing mid-2021 and concluding late-2021
Civil Works commencing late-2021 and concluding mid-2022
House Construction commencing late-2022 and concluding late-2025
Renewal SA is committed to ensuring that key stakeholders, including the community, are engaged as part of the planning process.
Renewal SA held two drop-in sessions on 19 and 23 June 2021 for local community to give their feedback on 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.
Online engagement will remain open until 16 July 2021 through the engagement platform, Social PinPoint.
