Development Plan and Policy

As part of the state's planning and development system, a Development Plan applies to the City of Port Adelaide Enfield. While the Development Plan bears the Council’s name, the content is ultimately determined by the Minister for Planning.

The Development Plan is the key statutory document used in assessing development applications that are lodged under the Development Act 1993.

When a development application is lodged for approval, the relevant authority (in most cases Council) must not grant Development Plan Consent if development is deemed to be ‘seriously at variance’ with the Development Plan.

Development Plan Amendments

From time to time, Development Plans are updated through the rezoning of land or rewriting of existing policies. This update process is known as a Development Plan Amendment (DPA), and must follow the requirements of the Act. While the Minister for Planning or the Council can initiate a DPA, only the Minister can approve a DPA.

Council is currently working on one DPA, with three others completed in recent months:

Corner Days & Regency Roads, Croydon Park DPA

Council is reviewing the land use policies applying to a large area of underutilised industrial zoned land at Days Road and Regency Road, Croydon Park. The DPA is privately funded, with the affected area under the ownership of several different parties. The zoning review is intended to enable the future development of the land for residential, retail, and commercial uses. The Council's Statement of Intent was submitted to the Minister and agreed to in December 2016.

In accord with its policy, the Council is awaiting updated technical studies to be completed by the proponents. Once received, these studies will be reviewed by Council to ensure the DPA can be considered for public consultation.

Rezoning of 165-179 and 181-193 Days Road, Regency Park for Residential Development DPA

Council has completed the rezoning of two land parcels on Days Road of some 8 hectares in size. Both parcels were zoned as a Community Zone, and have been rezoned to a Suburban Neighbourhood Zone. The new zoning allows the site to be redeveloped as a housing estate.

The DPA was available for public review for an eight week period commencing on Thursday 14 May 2020. Written comments were invited until 5pm Friday 10 July 2020.

Written submissions were received from Government Agencies, utility providers and adjoining Councils. No public submissions were received.

As none of the written submissions requested to be heard at a public meeting scheduled for 4 August 2020, the public meeting was not held.

A report on the submissions received and any recommended amendments to the DPA were considered by Council in its August 2020 meeting. The DPA was approved by the Planning Minister in October 2020. The documents associated with the DPA are listed below:

Rezoning of Allotment 113 and Portion of Allotment 115, Cowan Street, Angle Park for Residential Development DPA

Written submissions were received from Government Agencies, utility providers and adjoining Councils. No public submissions were received.
