This plan is different from the 30 Year Plan, although it is related. New thread for the Inner Metro Rim Structure Plan here: http://www.sensational-adelaide.com/for ... f=8&t=3305

Green light for Seaford Heights expansion

A CONTROVERSIAL development plan for Seaford Heights has been given the green light by the State Government, despite opposition from the adjacent McLaren Vale wine region.

Planning Minister John Rau has approved the Seaford Heights Development Plan Amendment, but has announced the Government has increased the buffer zone around the development by four hectares.

The DPA will allow a $500 million development at Seaford Heights to go ahead - resulting in 1180 new housing allotments being built at the gateway to McLaren Vale.

Mr Rau said the Government would provide funds to create a green gateway to one of the state's most significant wine districts, "ensuring a rural vista is retained along the northern entrance to McLaren Vale."

The buffer zone between Victor Harbor Road, South Road and the new Seaford Heights development will push any future housing development out of sight of Victor Harbor Road.

Hi all, the S-A VIP team had a chat.

In light of this protest rally due to occur on Feb 18, and to show our support of the Government's 30 year plan for increased density and height in the city, near the parklands, and inner-suburban corridors, we compiled the attached one page submission. Copies have been sent to Premier Weatherill & Minister for Planning (John Rau).

I also know a journo at the Advertiser. I'll soon contact him. Goal being to get some space for our side of the story.

Well done guys! To be honest, this forum should probably be mobilised to support progressive policy more often.

Would love to be able to attend this rally and take signs saying things like "<-- This sign does not reflect opinions of the majority" or "Grow Up, Not Out!"... will think of some more :)

Water towers – Glenunga and Norwood – approximately 9 storeys

Brewery apartments (2 towers) – corner Rundle St and Dequetteville Tce, Kent Town, 10 storeys

Air Apartments – corner Greenhill and Fullarton Rds, 13 storeys

Sounds like a reasonable result, particularly for Kent Town.
Buildings up to seven storeys allowed along The Parade under new council plans

SEVEN storey buildings will be allowed on The Parade under a plan endorsed by Norwood, Payneham &St Peters Council.
The plan, which needs to be approved by Planning Minister John Rau, will also allow apartments up to 10 storeys to be built along North and Dequetteville terraces.
Under the planning changes, to accommodate population targets in the State Government's 30-Year Plan, developers would also be allowed to build apartments up to five storeys along The Parade West and Rundle and King William streets in Kent Town.
The changes will affect The Parade between Osmond Tce and Portrush Rd.
NP&SP Mayor Robert Bria believed the council had struck the "right balance" with the new regulations.
"Given its excellent shopping, cafes and proximity to services, public transport and vibrant nightlife, residential living on The Parade seems like the natural next step in the evolution of the precinct," Mr Bria said.
He said the shift from low density shops and housing to denser, mixed-use developments would need to be undertaken in a "sensitive and gradual manner".
Residents should not expect a flurry of development once the new rules were approved by Mr Rau, Mr Bria said.
"The property development industry is experiencing a slow period at the moment, but I expect once economic conditions stabilise and there is more confidence in the market, that we'll see more development applications come in," he said.
Norwood Residents' Association president Jim Dunk said his members were pleased with the changes the council made to the plan - including increasing building setbacks and height restrictions on specific sites - following community consultation.
"It means we won't get a pile of cement boxes going up and down The Parade," Mr Dunk said.
The build height changes are designed to cater for a claimed Adelaide population increase of 560,000 over 30 years.

I also have no problem with the increased heights, particularly along North Terrace and Dequetteville. My only concern would be that they don't start demolishing historic shopfronts along the parade.

After some sound compromise with NP&SP council, we get this from West Torrens. I understand keeping some industrial zone around the brewery, but all the way down to Taylor Lane (which is an odd boundary, given it's the last lane before Henley Beach Road) is a bit extreme, especially given the city proximity, tram line, and plans for Bonython Park within the Riverside masterplan.

Also, only 3 stories along Henley Beach Rd? There's 3 story townhouses already! So pretty much completely maintaining the status quo then.
West Torrens Council puts Brewery ahead of Thebarton apartments in Port Rd backflip
JOHN STOKES AND HEATHER KENNETT WEEKLY TIMES INNER CITY AUGUST 01, 2013 11:10AM
http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/we ... 6689429260

PORT Rd at Thebarton should remain dedicated to industry, not multi-storey apartment blocks, West Torrens Council says.

The council had proposed buildings of up to eight storeys, including a residential component, along the western side of Port Rd.

However, after feedback from one of the area's largest tenants, SA Brewing Company, it has decided to maintain the area between Taylor Lane and the River Torrens as an industrial zone.

The council is putting the finishing touches on its city-wide planning laws, making about 40 amendments to draft zoning guidelines it will hand over to the State Government for final approval.

West Torrens chief executive Terry Buss said a submission from the brewery's owners Lion prompted the change of heart.

"As part of the consultation process the brewery has asked for the area to be retained as its current industry zone," Mr Buss said.

"The brewery has no intention of going anywhere else."

He said changing the zone would make it more difficult for the brewery, which is undergoing a $70 million expansion, to be further developed.

West Torrens' Development Plan Amendment (DPA) is a response to State Government's 30-Year-Plan, which encourages population growth around the CBD and inner-rim suburbs to prevent urban sprawl.

The council had more than 340 submissions and several petitions from residents about the DPA.

As part of the changes, Mr Buss said the council would aim for height limits of three storeys on Henley Beach Rd, rather than the six storeys originally proposed.

"All the amendments relate to reduction of heights to reflect community sentiment," Mr Buss said.

The changes would need to be signed off by elected members next month before it was considered by Planning Minister John Rau.

"We have to respond to what the community wants, but it still does provide for what the State Government is seeking so I don't think there should be too much of an issue with the changes," Mr Buss said.

A spokesman for Mr Rau said the DPA would be reviewed by Planning Department before it was considered by the Minister.

"The Minister has received strong representations on behalf of the local community … and he will consider all contributions to the consultation process before making a final decision on the DPA," he said.

SA Brewing Company did not respond to queries from the Weekly Times Messenger before presstime.

Disappointing backflip by West Torrens Council and shortsighted. Even Burnside Council has made a more acceptable effort to contribute to urban infill to complement the 30 Year Plan
3 stories along Henley Beach Rd is disappointing. Well, there goes their priority for tram extensions/other improved public transport services. Looks like the loud voices have won out.

Increasing densities on Port Road would have added to the revitalization of the area and utilized improving transport links, while contributing to improved services to cater for increased demand.

When the Hindmarsh section of Port road (city Charles Sturt) gathers momentum and building height, this section opposite Bonython Park will look daggy. It is however important to maintain some manufacturing jobs in the inner suburbs, so I think the brewery's plan to stay put is a good thing. That brewery emits a pungent smell of hops at times, so residents near there would be complaining in no time if apartments went in there. Likewise Coke, Wigg and Son etc. They all provide employment in the area. But surely there could be some residential mix. For example, the corner of George Street (Metro Holden site), would be a great location if it became available for some low rise towers. Also, some of the commercial buildings at the city end of Henley beach Road could easily become mixed use, also Sir Donald Bradman and Richmond road likewise, with a few more storeys would not be a bad result.
