On 18 February 2020, Council resolved to submit the Old Reynella Former Winery Site Development Plan Amendment (DPA) to the Minister for Planning for approval. The DPA had been amended after the statutory public consultation period to reflect community and elected member concerns around medium density, allotments adjoining the existing dwellings to the south and west of the site, and traffic and movement concerns.

The DPA with proposed changes to the Development Plan for the site, along with a summary of our consultations, was sent to the Minister for Planning for approval on 21 February 2020.

On 22 May 2020 council received formal advice from the Treasurer that he has approved the Old Reynella Former Winery Site DPA.

The approved DPA is the version that was originally approved by Council on 18 February 2020 that proposes the following changes resulting from the community engagement:

  • for housing allotments on the south and west boundary that border existing housing: a minimum allotment size of 400sq metres; a maximum building height of two storeys (9 metres); a rear setback of 8 metres; and a frontage width of 12 metres that is considered to be in keeping with the frontage widths of some adjoining allotments on Sampson Crescent
  • the balance of the Residential Zone having the same planning provisions (rules) as the neighbouring residential area
  • retaining Burgoyne Drive access to be used as the primary residential access
  • a resident-only access connection to Panalatinga Road
  • restricting medium density development to the proposed expanded new Suburban Activity Node Zone that is away from any existing homes.

The approved DPA did not include the additional matters that Council sought at Council meeting 17 March 2020 that included changes to the low density residential area (requesting a single storey building height), the application of a Heritage Conservation Area, and a requirement for 18 per cent public open space.

The Treasurer acknowledged in his letter for the approval that these matters were considered to be inconsistent with existing policy for the adjoining Residential Zone and outside of the scope of the DPA. Further he advised that the requirement for 18 per cent public open space is not consistent with provisions under the Development Act 1993, which requires up to 12.5 per cent of the relevant area to be held as open space.

The Summary of Consultations and Proposed Amendments (SCPA) report has been prepared which includes a summary of all submissions and Council’s response. You can access the SCPA report with our response to all submissions here.

Council would like to thank everyone for their interest and to all who made a submission to the Old Reynella former winery site Development Plan Amendment (DPA).
