North Adelaide Former Channel 9 Site Development Plan Amendment (DPA)

Consultation has concluded

The Development Plan Amendment was gazetted on 30 May 2017.

The DPA was approved by the Minister for Planning on 30 May 2017. This Adelaide (City) Development Plan can be viewed here (refer Tynte Street Policy Area 4). This consolidated Development Plan also incorporates the North Adelaide Large Institutions and Colleges DPA and the Capital City Policy Review (Design Quality) DPA, which were also gazetted on 30 May 2017. You can view a summary map here.

The changes to the Channel 9 site will enable a vacant site to be an integrated development site which is designed sensitively to its surrounding residential locality. The DPA will support the redevelopment of disused commercial site in North Adelaide. This will help meet the City of Adelaide’s residential population targets.

The DPA will enable a 6 storey residential building to be built in the centre of the site. Lower scale 1 to 2 storey buildings will be designed around the existing low scale historic streets.

Council is pleased that the DPA lists the cottages on Tynte Street as a Local Heritage Place.

136 McKinnon Parade has been removed from the Local Heritage Place register.

Council thanks all who have been involved in this preparing this DPA. Your input has been valuable to ensure the planning policy settings respond well.
