Strathalbyn Development Plan Amendment

Council is undertaking a Development Plan Amendment (DPA) process for the Strathalbyn Township & Environs. An info-graphic summarising the DPA process can be viewed here: Strathalbyn Development Plan Amendment Process.

The DPA is a direct output of the recommendations from the Strathalbyn Town Plan, which was completed by Council in 2014.

Update August 2017: Council has prepared a consultation version of the Strathalbyn Township & Environs Development Plan Amendment (DPA). The consultation version of the DPA has been forwarded to the Minister for Planning to seek approval to undertake concurrent public and agency consultation in accordance with Section 25(8) of the Development Act 1993 (SA). An 8-week public consultation period will commence upon receipt of approval from the Minister for Planning. Further information about the consultation process will be uploaded to this webpage in due course.

Supporting Investigations 

To support development of the DPA, Council engaged the following consultants to undertake a number of investigations:

  1. Concept Plan for Lot 10, Langhorne Creek Road – awarded to Tredwell Management. This investigation has explored how Council land at Lot 10 Langhorne Creek Road can be rezoned and developed to accommodate a range of recreational and community uses.
  2. Strathalbyn District Centre Traffic, Car Parking & Streetscape Plan – awarded to MRCagney Pty Ltd. In collaboration with Jensen PLUS, this investigation has produced a traffic, parking and streetscape strategy for the town centre, focusing on the design of public places, linkages between High Street and Dawson Street and improving safety for all users. Consultation on the DRAFT Strathalbyn District Centre Traffic Parking Streetscape Plan document closed on Friday 28 July 2017. At the Council meeting held on 21 August 2017 Council noted feedback received on the draft plan and approved a number of changes. A final version of the plan will be made available on this webpage soon.
  3. Retail Analysis Review – awarded to SGS Economics and Planning. This review provided an independent update of previous retail analyses for Strathalbyn, including an updated assessment of future demand for retail and other commercial floor-space.
  4. DPA preparation and Strath Property Investment Land Investigations - awarded to Holmes Dyer Pty Ltd. In addition to the preparation of the DPA, Holmes Dyer has undertaken a review of the suitability of Lots 507 & 600 Hamden Way and Lot 508 Braemer Drive, Strathalbyn (referred to as the Adelaide Road Land) for urban and community purposes. 

Council would like to thank the members of our community who participated in development of the Strathalbyn Town Plan and to recognise the input of the members of the Strathalbyn Community Advisory Panel. We look forward to receiving community feedback on the draft DPA once released for public consultation.
