Proposal to rezone land at Albert Park

The City of Charles Sturt proposes to rezone land at Albert Park. The rezoning process is called a “Code Amendment” as it is a proposal to amend the South Australian Planning and Design Code.

The community now has the opportunity to comment on the Albert Park Mixed Use Draft Code Amendment.

The Code Amendment proposes to rezone approximately 11 hectares of land adjacent Port Road, Albert Park. Refer to the Area Affected Map.

The existing zoning of the land is largely Strategic Employment Zone and Employment Zone, and a small portion is also zoned General Neighbourhood. The area comprises primarily of large scale industrial and commercial buildings, a church, and low-density residential properties. Refer to the Existing Zone Map.

Investigations (eg. traffic assessment, stormwater management, environmental assessment, utility infrastructure capacity, built form and desired land uses) have now been undertaken and form part of the draft Code Amendment document.

The Albert Park Mixed Use Draft Code Amendment proposes two new zones:

  • Suburban Business Zone (SB) - this zone encourages businesses with low level off-site impacts and complementary medium density housing, up to 4 levels; and
  • Housing Diversity Neighbourhood Zone (HDN) - this zone encourages medium density housing up to 3 levels in height.

Refer to the Proposed Zone Map and Proposed Building Height Map.
