This is better than some of the crap that gets proposed for the city, I really like the design for its size

Building looks nice, and would be great for the area (especially if they demolish the small block of shops and build on the corner), but I would hate to live on a lower floor at the back. Horrible view.. Not to mention the sound of the DC trucks backing into Coles early in the morning.

From The Advertiser
Boardwalk among ideas to revitalise Beach Rd, Christies Beach
A BOARDWALK connecting Christies Beach to Port Noarlunga, lowering the speed limit to 40km/h, more alfresco dining, and a tram line are among ideas to revitalise Beach Rd.
Over the past year, the Christies Beach Business & Tourism Association has been inviting people to its pop-up shop on Beach Rd to share their ideas on how to transform the shopping strip.
About 6500 people have taken part, with suggestions including a boardwalk, tourist information centre, more street art and homewares and fashion outlets.
Reducing the road’s speed limit from 60km/h to 40km/h and more events such as twilight markets and food festivals were also listed.

It absolutely should become a jetty road of the south, but given it's presently so far away from that they need to turn these ideas into a 20-30 year master plan and stay the course.

I propose Onkaparinga Council trial a free bus service during summer running between Noarlunga Centre Station and Christies Beach connecting with trains from city on weekends. To save money on buying a bus they could lease a bus from Southlink Lonsdale, any low floor rigid bus will do.

Rising skyline on the line

HEIGHT limits in parts of Oaklands Park will rise to seven storeys under Marion Council plans to increase housing density. High-rise apartment blocks would be allowed along the Seaford rail line and Diagonal Rd under the plan. One-storey developments would be favoured in other parts of the suburb. SEVEN storey apartment blocks would be allowed along the Seaford rail line and Diagonal Rd under Marion Council plans to increase housing density in Oaklands Park.

One-storey development would be favoured in other parts of the suburb, which is mostly zoned for two-storey homes.

Heights to be allowed in other suburbs within the area have yet to be voted on, apart from excluding “character areas” of Edwardstown, Glandore and Plympton Park from the rezoning.

Councillors voted last week to approve staff to go ahead with detailed plans for the Oaklands Park rezoning being considered by its planning committee as the first part of zoning changes for all areas along the Seaford rail line, the Glenelg tramline and Marion Rd.

Committee chairman Nathan Prior said the zoning in Oaklands Park allowed for a wide range of development but the easiest thing for landowners to do was to replace single family homes with between two and four units so this was what was most common. This created traffic issues and delayed denser development for decades, he said.
“That’s why this is urgent,” Cr Prior said.

“There’s not many things that get knocked back and that’s a concern.”

Traffic would be alleviated because the developments would be along public-transport routes and the land would be freed up for its maximum potential. “There will be people in areas we increase who won’t be happy with this but the point is their property values will increase,” Cr Prior said.

He said it did not make sense that most development on the eastern side of Diagonal Rd was one storey, while on the western side the Westfield Marion office tower was eight storeys high. Oaklands Estate Residents’ Association president Fred Hill hoped the rezoning would prevent “cookie-cutter” developments of uninteresting row houses that were popping up across Marion. “It keeps the development consistent in a section,” Mr Hill said.

The most likely next area for a more detailed rezoning was Edwardstown and Ascot Park, Cr Prior said.

Onkaparinga Council concerned about state Government plan to allow 1000 new homes at Aldinga
APRIL 04, 2019

A plan to allow 1000 homes to be crammed on to vacant land in Aldinga has Onkaparinga Council worried about a repeat of the controversial Seaford Meadows development.

Mayor Erin Thompson will write to Renewal SA saying that to build so many houses on the site would require a density that would have a negative impact on Aldinga’s character.

Renewal SA has released a plan for the 94ha parcel of land bounded by Main South, Aldinga Beach, Quinliven and How roads for public consultation.

It includes the new Aldinga super school, 1000 houses and an extension to the Seaford railway line.

According to a council report, 60 per cent of the houses would have to be medium density – 40 homes per hectare – to achieve the target.

The council approved Ms Thompson’s draft letter at a meeting this week.

“If this target were to be achieved it could have a significant detrimental visual impact on the character of Aldinga, and more broadly, the adjoining McLaren Vale Character Preservation District,” it says.

“We ask that Renewal SA ... incorporate requirements for larger lots where the development interfaces with the McLaren Vale Character Preservation District.

“This would, in turn, focus any higher density development towards the centre of the development.”

Cr Richard Peat said he wanted to avoid a repeat of the controversial $215 million Hickinbotham housing development at Seaford Meadows, which residents have been fighting for more than two years.

Under that plan, 700 homes will be built on a 42ha site on Commercial Rd.

“I don’t want to see that happen here,” Cr Peat said.

“At the end of the day, Renewal SA are instructed to get the most money and the most value for the sale of the land, so the more homes they can stick in the more revenue for the State Government, but I don’t want to see an outcome like Seaford Meadows where they sell it to a developer on that pretence.

“The council is advocating for the community and what the community wants.”

The council has also requested that the “green triangle” parcel of land north of Quinliven Rd – which has been earmarked for development – be kept as open space.

Community consultation on the plan closes on Sunday.
