Housing Diversity - Development Plan Amendment

Consultation has concluded

Project Update

Council have now submitted the draft Housing Diversity Development Plan Amendment to the Minister of Planning on 22 December 2017.

Community Consultation has now closed for this project. We have reviewed the submissions that have been made.

Written submissions can be viewed here (large file). Thank you for your time in providing us your feedback.


Planning how our streets will look and feel is an important part of Council's work.

Each Council has a Development Plan that provides guidelines on what new construction can be built and where.

By law, Development Plans must be regularly reviewed and updated to ensure they cater for Marion's changing population and housing needs.

Since 2015, the City of Marion has extensively reviewed our Development Plan in a project known as the Housing Diversity Development Plan Amendment (DPA).

    The City of Marion is embarking on the biggest change to planning rules in our history and we want to hear your views.

    Almost every suburb from Glandore to Hallett Cove will be affected by the proposed changes.

    Over the coming week, 43,000 households and businesses across Marion will receive a letter summarising the proposed changes.

    Council aims to create new zones throughout the City, which will have planning rules around the size and density of developments.

    Let us know what you think of the proposed changes by no later than November 14, 2017.
