Development Strategic Growth Framework Waterloo Corner and Bolivar Corridor

Strategic Growth Framework Waterloo Corner and Bolivar Corridor

Introduction

The land west of Port Wakefield Road is increasingly becoming an area of interest for new economic growth and development opportunities.

Council recognises this strong interest and that many existing landowners may wish to continue with farming and horticultural activities. In addition, infrastructure will be needed to facilitate this future growth.

Council is undertaking a process to understand the future infrastructure requirements and landowner interest for future development to inform the coordinated development of the area. This process is called the 'Strategic Growth Framework – Waterloo Corner and Bolivar Corridor'.

We are now seeking the views of the landowners and key stakeholders to assist us with this process. This is your opportunity to provide your comments on the future of the area.

Feedback will be open until 5 pm 27 May 2022.

Have Your Say

Strategic Growth Framework

The Strategic Growth Framework has the following objectives:

  • Develop a fully coordinated growth plan for the area, to inform future Council decisions and State Government advocacy agendas
  • Support forward infrastructure planning and funding agreements, identify the required road, stormwater and open space corridors
  • Facilitate an orderly sequencing of land development and any required rezonings (either Council or Proponent Led Code Amendments)
  • Identify economic growth and job creation targets, priority precincts and likely delivery timelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

The City of Salisbury City Plan 2035 has a critical action to open new economic growth and development opportunities in a coordinated manner for the land west of Port Wakefield Road.

With the design and opening of the Northern Connector, the land on both sides of this new road asset and interchanges has become of increased interest for redevelopment. This development needs to be planned and delivered in a coordinated manner.

The Strategic Growth Framework covers land that is largely used for farming and agricultural uses within the suburb of Waterloo Corner within the City of Salisbury, the suburb of Bolivar north of the Little Para River and part of the suburb of St Kilda (excluding the St Kilda Township). Refer to the study area boundary plan.

The Strategic Growth Framework is a plan for a 20–50-year timeframe. It is likely large parts of the area will not change in the next 20 years, but this process will set the ground work for future change, as and when it occurs.

Council aims to have the Strategic Growth Framework completed by mid-2022.

An implementation plan and timeline will be developed following this consultation process. This will support land owners that wish to start code amendment processes.

Any plan to change the current land zoning, will be subject to detailed community consultation with all affected property owners prior to adoption as part of a future Code Amendment Process.

View information on the Code Amendment Process.

All existing legal operations would be able to continue under existing use rights.

Infrastructure that is required to support new urban development will be identified and provided as land is developed. This could include upgrading existing rural roads, the construction of new roads, a new stormwater network and open space corridors.

Landowners/developers will need to be responsible for their proportional share of this cost, and infrastructure agreements will be required before the land is rezoned. This may require landowners/developers to work together with services providers and the Council so that the costs are most effectively shared in a coordinated manner.

This process will inform these decisions so that all parties have an agreed understanding of the infrastructure requirements and associated costs.
