The Minister is proposing to amend the Development Plans of Marion and West Torrens councils to enable new land uses on surplus racecourse land at Morphettville.
The proposed policy change will enable a medium to high density housing and mixed use precinct to be developed on parts of the racecourse land including land identified by the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) as surplus to its needs. The DPA also affects land fronting Anzac Highway between (and including) the Junction Bar and Bistro and Morphett Road, as well as land west of Morphett Road containing tram barns, residences and commercial activities
The inner metropolitan location offers great access to transport and will cater for a range of activities and medium to high density housing options.
The purpose of the DPA is to provide a zoning framework that facilitates the creation of a new inner urban mixed use neighbourhood integrated with a new permanent tram stop and upgraded racing facilities.
A community information sheet (1.7 MB PDF) includes a map of the site and provides details about the proposed amendment and the amendment process.
Submissions can be made to the Department of Planing, Transport and Infrastructure by 5pm, 3 November.
