Kilkenny Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial) Development Plan Amendment (Privately Funded)

Introduction

The City of Charles Sturt proposes changes to the Charles Sturt Council Development Plan via the Kilkenny Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial) Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (Privately Funded).

The focus of the DPA is to rezone the existing Urban Employment Zone in Kilkenny, north of the railway line (refer to the area outlined in red on the Area Affected Map opposite). The affected area is proposed to be included in the Suburban Activity Node Zone to facilitate higher density residential and mixed use development.

The DPA investigations confirm that the land is suited to residential infill and can be economically serviced. The draft DPA considers preferred building heights, transport, environmental noise, stormwater management, infrastructure and public open space.

What are the key proposed changes?
  • Rezone the land to a Suburban Activity Node Zone (a mixed use zone).
  • Allow medium to high density residential development ranging from 2 to 5 storeys in different locations.
  • Limit development along Mundulla Street to a maximum of 2 storeys (for a setback distance of 9.5 metres).
  • Allow low impact and low intensity non-residential development to service the needs of the local area, concentrated along David and Wilpena Terraces.
  • Apply the ‘Noise and Air Emissions’ and ‘Affordable Housing’ overlays to the land.
  • Ensure pedestrian connections to MJ McInerney Reserve and the station platform.
  • Allow for the location of the Outer Harbour Greenway through the subject land, adjacent to the railway corridor.
