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

Proposal to rezone land at Kidman Park

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

The Code Amendment proposes to rezone around 12.6 hectares of land bound by Findon Road to the east, Valetta Road to the north, the River Torrens (Karrawirra Parri) to the south, and housing to the west. Refer to the Area Affected maps on this page.

The area of land includes the former Metcash site as well as two additional land parcels on Valetta Road. The land is identified as:

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

The Code Amendment proposes the rezoning of land from the current Strategic Employment Zone to the Urban Renewal Neighbourhood Zone, with a Mixed-Use Transition Subzone in the north-east portion allowing mixed use development in the form of residential and commercial.

Investigations (e.g. 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.

A Concept Plan is proposed to assist in guiding the assessment of future development. The Concept Plan shows desired maximum building heights, vehicle access points, pedestrian and cycling links, desired future public open space, and stormwater detention areas. Refer to the Proposed Concept Plan on this page.

Hard copies of the Draft Code Amendment were available for viewing during the consultation period at the following City of Charles Sturt sites:

  • Civic Centre and Library - 72 Woodville Road, Woodville;
  • Hindmarsh Library - 139 Port Road, Hindmarsh;
