Development Plan Amendments

From time to time, Development Plans are updated through the rezoning of land or rewriting of existing policies.  This update process is known as a Development Plan Amendment (DPA), and must follow the requirements of the Development Act 1993.  While the Minister for Planning or Council can initiate a DPA, only the Minister can approve a DPA.

Council currently has two active DPA as listed below.

Southern Heritage Places Development Plan Amendment

Pursuant to Sections 24 and 25 of the Development Act 1993, Council has prepared a Development Plan Amendment Report (DPA) to amend its Development Plan.

The Amendment proposes to change the Development Plan by introducing: a Table of Local Heritage Places with a description of the elements of heritage value of each place, figures showing the location of proposed places, and update provisions applying to the assessment of development affecting local heritage places.  The area surveyed is the southern half of the Council area including the towns of Mannum, Cambrai, Keyneton, Palmer, Tungkillo and surrounds.  The survey area is south of the Angaston-Swan Reach Road (Stott Highway), but excluding Sedan and Swan Reach townships.

The DPA report including a map of the survey area and places identified are available here.

Information sheets have also been prepared to assist members of the community and are available below:

The DPA was on public consultation from Tuesday 1 August 2017 until Tuesday 26 September 2017.

A public hearing was held on Monday 16 October 2017 at which time six (6) people addressed the Committee with respect to their submission.  The DPA was endorsed by Council on 12 December 2017 and lodged with DPTI on 19 December 2017.  DPTI will be reviewing recommendations and contacting objecting owners with details on the next steps involved in reviewing the Local Heritage Place recommendations.  This will include an opportunity to make a further submission direct to the State Government prior to any final report and recommendation being prepared by a special State Government Committee.

 

Walker Avenue, Mannum Development Plan Amendment

Pursuant to Sections 24 and 25 of the Development Act 1993, Council has prepared a Development Plan Amendment Report (DPA) to amend its Development Plan.

The Mid Murray Council released its Walker Avenue, Mannum DPA which, if adopted, will rezone surplus industrial land and public purpose land to allow for its future residential development.  The area affected includes all of the land bounded by Walker Avenue, Adelaide Road, David Street and Diercks Road, which is currently located in the Industry, Public Purposes, Residential and Residential Character Zones.  The area affected map is included in the DPA.

The Amendment relates primarily to the existing industrial zoned land and surrounding public purpose and residential zoned land, located in a central part of the Mannum township near the town centre, the land has historically been used for manufacturing purposes by the longstanding South Australian company Horwood Bagshaw.  The Amendment proposes to change the Development Plan by rezoning surplus industrial land and the public purpose land to allow for its future residential development.

The DPA report is available here.

The DPA was on public consultation from Tuesday 21 November 2017 until Tuesday 30 January 2018.

A number of written submissions were received and are available for inspection at the Council Offices at Mannum, Cambrai and Morgan, Monday-Friday during normal office hours until the DPA is submitted to the Minister for endorsement.

As no-one requested to be heard as part of their written submission, the public hearing scheduled for Thursday 8 February 2018 at 7pm in the Meeting Room of the Council Offices, 49 Adelaide Road, Mannum has been CANCELLED.

It is anticipated that the DPA will be presented to the Committee for endorsement and subsequently Council before being sent to DPTI for final approval in mid March 2018.

If you would like further information about either of the above DPA’s, contact Jake McVicar at the Cambrai Office on 8564 6020.
