  • SA Planning Minister’s proposed changes to Glenelg building heights and zones

    almost 1 year ago

    The Minister for Planning, the Hon John Rau, has released a Development Plan Amendment that proposes changes to the Holdfast Bay Development Plan to allow a greater range of medium and high-rise development along Jetty Road, the Glenelg Foreshore and areas along the Patawalonga as well as some expansion of zone boundaries.

    The State Government has now closed public consultation on the proposed changes.

    To find out what policy changes are proposed by the Minister, you can view the information sheet on the State Government website here, or the Amendment here.

    You can find details of submissions made on the DPA (including Council’s feedback) on the State Government website here.

    Next Steps

    The Development Policy and Advisory Committee (DPAC) will review written and verbal submissions and prepare a written report on the draft DPA for the Minister. The Minister will consider the DPAC report and decide whether to approve the DPA (as released for public consultation); approve the DPA with changes; or not approve the DPA. If the Minister decides to approve the DPA, it will be implemented into Council’s Development Plan. The DPA would then be reviewed by the Environment, Resources and Development Committee.
