Inner Metro Growth Project
Adelaide needs to plan for its future growth. The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide lays the foundations to guide this growth.
The government together with inner metropolitan councils has been working on how to accommodate some of this growth. A series of rezonings is now proposed in targeted locations close to the city. This will reduce Adelaide’s spread; increase the use and efficiency of our roads and public transport; and enable a large number of people to enjoy the benefits offered by inner-city living.
Indicative growth in example areas:
- City of Prospect example
- City of Unley example
- City of West Torrens example
- City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters example
To help guide future development in these locations, the State Government’s Inner Metro Rim Structure Plan has been released to further refine the directions set out in The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide for this important area. It will be used by state government agencies and inner metropolitan councils in future planning processes.
The proposed changes will be introduced through four separate development plan amendments – one initiated by the Minister for Planning and three prepared by councils.
What are the amendments and what areas will be affected?
The Minister’s Inner Metropolitan Growth Development Plan Amendment will affect sections of:
- Greenhill and Fullarton roads opposite the Park Lands (in the Burnside Council area)
- Prospect, Churchill and Main North roads (in the Prospect Council area).
The City of Unley’s Village Living & Desirable Neighbourhoods Development Plan Amendment, Main Road Corridor Mixed Use & Residential Vitalisation (Greenhill and Unley Roads) will affect sections of:
- Greenhill Road opposite the Park Lands
- Unley Road.
- Port Road opposite the Park Lands
- Henley Beach Road
- Anzac Highway.
The City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters’ Kent Town and The Parade Strategic Growth Development Plan Amendment will affect:
- a section of The Parade (the shopping precinct)
- Kent Town.
