Have your say on proposed rezoning at Hackham and Old Noarlunga

The state government is seeking community feedback on the proposed rezoning of 235 hectares of land in Hackham and Old Noarlunga, which could enable residential development of up to 2000 new houses and a retail centre in Hackham.

The Chief Executive of the Attorney General’s Department is undertaking a Code Amendment to rezone the land (211 hectares in Hackham and 23.5 hectares in Old Noarlunga) to address an immediate need for further land supply and population growth in the south of Adelaide, which it says will facilitate the contribution to housing affordability and quality of life for South Australians.

The proposed rezoning seeks to:

  • enable a potential residential development of up to 2000 new houses and a retail centre in Hackham
  • provide new policy to improve development on sloping land
  • ensure the provision of appropriate infrastructure and services for the community.

Your views will help inform new policy that is proposing to:

  • ensure the provision of appropriately zoned land
  • meet the needs of South Australia’s growing population
  • ensure development within an area that the state government says is well-serviced by existing transport and existing social infrastructure, and employment.

As part of the outer south region of Greater Adelaide, Hackham and Old Noarlunga have been identified as having the lowest greenfield (undeveloped) land supply of all regions in Greater Adelaide.

You can view prepared maps at council's Your Say page (which is helping to promote the community engagement) that show the proposed area with current (old) and proposed (new) zoning and overlays.

You can also view a draft Concept Plan over the area proposed to be zoned Master Planned Neighbourhood Zone, which illustrates the infrastructure required to manage stormwater and traffic. It also shows the two proposed subzones to support the development of a retail centre, address residential density, and design requirements for sloping land.

Head to council's Your Say page for more information and to provide your feedback to the state government until 5pm on Tuesday 26 July.
