Zoning

Zoning determines how your land can be used or developed.  For example, you can open a restaurant in a commercial zone or build a warehouse in an industrial zone.

 

Residential zone

Residential zones are used for a range of housing types, styles and densities.  Density refers to the number of dwellings allowable per subdivision or allotment. Generally residences are one to three stories in height.

The City of West Torrens Development Plan now includes a range of policy areas that envisage residential development of different densities. These policy areas can be broadly grouped as follows:

  • Low Density and Medium Density policy areas
  • Conservation and Character Areas
  • as well as policy areas in the Urban Corridor Zone that support mixed use development.

The fact sheets listed below provide an overview of each of the policy areas.

Information contained within the facts sheets is advisory and provided as a general guide to give an understanding of the key issues that apply in the relevant policy area. For full details of policy that affects proposed development, you should consult the Development Plan as the statutory document.

Urban Corridor zone

The Urban Corridor zone will contain an innovative mix of medium density  and high density residential development, together with community and employment land uses, along Port Road, ANZAC Highway and Henley Beach Road corridors. The combination of land uses will vary within these corridors.

Some locations will provide a mix of land uses with ground floor shops, restaurants and offices, and upper level residential, while other locations will give priority to residential development. Other parts of the zone will have a stronger employment focus.
