St Clair Residential Draft Development Plan Amendment (Privately Funded)

Introduction

The City of Charles Sturt proposes changes to the Charles Sturt Council Development Plan via the St Clair Residential Draft Development Plan Amendment (draft DPA) (Privately Funded). The affected area by the draft DPA relates to the existing Trident Plastics factory at 589-599 Torrens Road, St Clair (refer to the red shaded area on the plan to the right) .

The draft DPA seeks to rezone the existing Urban Employment Zone in St Clair to a Residential Zone under the Woodville Medium Density Policy Area 21 (which is the zone for land directly to the east and south of the affected area) to facilitate medium density residential development consistent with the character and density of residential development within St Clair, while also providing vehicular, pedestrian and open space linkages throughout the locality.

The draft DPA investigations confirm that the land is suited to residential infill and can be economically serviced. The investigations related to a range of matters including preferred building heights, a transport impact assessment, an environmental noise assessment, stormwater management, other infrastructure and public open space. The findings can be viewed in the draft DPA and summarised in the 'Information Brochure' in the Document Library.
