Kidman Park Residential and Mixed Use Code Amendment (Privately Funded)

Proposal to rezone land at Kidman Park

The City of Charles Sturt has initiated a proposal to investigate rezoning land at Kidman Park following agreement from the Minister for Planning. The rezoning process is called a “Code Amendment” as it is a proposal to amend the South Australian Planning and Design Code.

The community will have the opportunity to comment on the proposal in several months-time once early investigations are complete and a draft Code Amendment has been prepared for statutory consultation.

The Code Amendment process will investigate the potential rezoning of land identified as:

  • 406-412 and 414-450 Findon Road, Kidman Park; and
  • 5 and 7 Valetta Road, Kidman Park.

The area of land includes the former Metcash site as well as two additional land parcels on Valetta Road. The Area Affected Maps show the area of land included in the Code Amendment.

The Code Amendment process will investigate a rezoning of the land from the current Strategic Employment Zone to a zone or zones that will allow mixed use development in the form of residential uses and commercial opportunities.

The Code Amendment process

The Code Amendment process includes a number of steps which must be undertaken before any changes to zoning or policy can be implemented. Broadly the process involves:

  • Initiation
  • Initiated: Preparation (pre-engagement)
  • On Consultation
  • Consultation Completed
  • Finalised (Approved or Refused)
  • Parliamentary Review.

The Kidman Park Residential and Mixed Use Code Amendment (Privately Funded) is currently at the Initiated Step.

An overview of the Code Amendment process can also be viewed on the Plan SA website.

Information about the Initiation of Kidman Park Code Amendment can also be viewed through this Plan SA website link. You can click on the "Code Amendment Map Viewer" to view a map; or scroll down to the list of all Code Amendments and click on "Kidman Park Residential and Mixed Use Code Amendment" to read an overview and view initiation documents.

The Initiated step involves undertaking investigations (eg. traffic assessment, stormwater management, environmental assessment, utility infrastructure capacity, built form and desired land uses). The findings of these investigations will be used to inform the drafting of the Code Amendment policy.

The investigations are expected to be undertaken over the next few months. Once prepared, a draft Code Amendment will become available for community comment, this is estimated to be in the first half of 2022.
