Code amendment consultation

The City of West Torrens is currently consulting on a Code Amendment that is seeking to reduce the maximum building heights for a number of properties along ANZAC Highway, Glandore.

The Glandore Character Area Protection Code Amendment is proposing to change the allowable maximum building heights from 8 building levels or 32.5 metres down to a maximum of 3 building levels or 12.5 metres. This amendments applies to the following 8 identified land parcels along and near ANZAC Highway, Glandore:

  • 118A Anzac Highway
  • 130-132 Anzac Highway
  • 144 Anzac Highway
  • 158 Anzac Highway
  • 186 Anzac Highway
  • 188 Anzac Highway
  • 192 Anzac Highway
  • 2A Stuart Street

The allowable building heights are considered to be excessive for this location and contrary to previous strategic and policy work undertaken by Council. Importantly, reducing the building heights will better protect the existing Glandore Character Area, and align with heights allowed for other properties along this part of ANZAC Highway at Glandore.

Section 78 of the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act, 2016 provides an avenue for any proposed amendment to the Code to come into effect immediately whilst the Amendment undergoes a consultation process (this is known as Early Commencement).

The City of West Torrens has sought Early Commencement designation for the Code Amendment to avoid development applications being lodged on the affected land parcels in an attempt to take advantage of the current policy and so, undermine the intent of the proposed policy change.

A hardcopy version of the Code Amendment can be viewed at the City of West Torrens Civic Centre, 165 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton SA 5031.
