    The Adelaide Park Lands Upgrade involves landscaping, facility and services improvement of the existing Adelaide Park Lands in the western area of the city - equivalent to the size of 2 and a half AFL sporting grounds.

    The upgrade is located across the road from the Bowden Development and is a partnership between Adelaide City Council, City of Charles Sturt and the Bowden redevelopment.

    Funded from the State Government via Renewal SA, the upgrade project aims to link the Bowden Development with the parklands and the city and forms part of the ‘Riverbank Precinct’ which includes some 13 projects integrating along the Torrens, public transport, retail and entertainment.

    Staged upgrade of this section of the Adelaide Park Lands is being planned over a five year period.

    Renewal SA is currently consulting on the Draft Concept Plan. Read more.

    The DPA proposes a new Policy Area to replace the existing Recreation / Education Policy Areaand incorporates specific elements of the Woodville Village Master Plan to provide a mixture of residential and commercial development on the land owned by the Urban Renewal Authority. This land is located between the railway line and St Clair Reserve.

    The DPA will be on consultation for a 12 week period between 22 November 2012 and 14 February 2013.

    Council is holding an information session on 12 December 7.30-9.00pm at the Administration Centre. Come along and learn how you can have your say on this consultation.


    The Minster for Planning has released for public consultation, the Woodville Station Ministerial Development Plan Amendment (DPA) which includes the land bound by the Outer Harbor Railway Line, Actil Avenue, Leslie Street West and Woodville Road.

    The land subject to the DPA is currently located within the District Centre Zone (as outlined within the Charles Sturt Development Plan) - this will remain the same. The DPA proposes a new Policy Area to replace the existing Recreation / Education Policy Area.

    The main components of the policy changes are:

    The incorporation of specific elements of the Woodville Village Master Plan to provide a mixture of residential and commercial development on the land owned by the Urban Renewal Authority. This land is located between the railway line and St Clair Reserve.

    The extent of mixed use development will only apply to the URA site, the balance of land contained within the DPA study area will not be affected, with recreation, open space and educational land uses being envisaged and the policies remaining unchanged.

    A new Concept Plan has been developed. The main elements of the Concept Plan depict that within the URA site, a 'Core' area will be located centrally and primarily be made up of residential uses with retail and office uses playing a supporting role. A 'Transition' area is also proposed, and should contain residential development and non-residential development of a smaller scale.

    The Desired Character Statement aims to achieve a minimum net density of 85 dwellings per hectare. Building heights up to 8 storeys in the “Core” area are proposed and between 3 to 5 storeys in the “Transition” area, with three storeys fronting onto Actil Avenue.

    22% of the site will be dedicated to open space, predominantly located adjacent to Woodville Road and there is an emphasis on high quality urban design and public realm elements.
