Walkleys Road Corridor
Council has been investigating areas of Council owned land that are suitable for future development. The site on the other side of Montague Road from the Ingle Farm Shopping Centre between Mozart Avenue and Denning and Grenada Avenues (which was reserved for the development of a future road, and including some areas of existing open space) has been identified as a site for future housing and upgraded open space, and potentially for other non-residential uses in the area adjacent to Montague Road.
We acknowledge that the site provides an open outlook for many local residents, but in many instances the space isn’t highly usable, reflecting that it has historically been preserved as a future road corridor and is not irrigated as a result, with very limited facilities, equipment or infrastructure on it. We are keen to provide high quality open space within any new development that meets the changing needs of the immediate and wider Ingle Farm community.
In November 2020, we invited you to participate in a series of activities to voice your ideas and concerns about the potential future development of this site.
Many local residents and stakeholders shared their views by attending our pop-up event on the corridor, filling out our feedback form, sending us an email, giving us a call or joining our listening post.
The feedback received through Stage 1 community engagement helped to shape the draft concept plan. This plan will deliver a range of benefits, including more housing choices and better connections to local services for those who need it. High design standards, with design complementing the existing character of the locality and quality public spaces, is a focus, as well as improved public safety from increased passive surveillance.
Developing this site is not a foregone conclusion – we haven’t made the final decision whether to do so or not. More detailed investigations and engagement with the community will help inform Council’s decision on whether or not to progress the development.
Council has experience in projects like this – where we develop underutilised reserve space – you may have seen our developments at Greentree Walk, Boardwalk at Greentree in Paralowie, Riverwalk, Emerald Green in Parafield Gardens, The Reserve in Salisbury North, or Irving Place in Para Hills. These are now attractive, thriving communities that have given new residents and existing local residents looking for a change in their lifestyle, the opportunity to experience what the City of Salisbury has to offer.
This project is part of the City of Salisbury Strategic Property Development Program. To learn more about this, including FAQs (frequently asked questions), please visit the program page here.

Community Engagement (Stage 2)
The second round of community engagement closed at 5 pm, Wednesday 5 May 2021.
The engagement invited your feedback on the draft concept plan. Feedback was provided at a pop-up event, through a survey and via a dedicated email and phone number.
Your feedback is now being considered in finalising the concept plan and will be reported to Council. This will help them to make a decision at a Council meeting on whether to proceed with the next stage of the project or what changes they might require.
We will get back to you with a summary of what feedback we received during the consultation and what decision the Council made.
