Seacliff Park Development Site

Consultation has concluded

The City of Marion together with the City of Holdfast Bay is currently working with developers to facilitate residential and commercial development in Seacliff Park.

The site has historically been used for quarrying, concrete manufacturing, domestic land fill, roof tile manufacturing and as a depot for a construction company. The dilapidated nature of buildings (now demolished) and other and issues associated with the site have been a major concern for residents in the area for many years. The land is located in both the City of Marion and the City of Holdfast Bay.

December 2018 update

Preliminary engagement with the community was undertaken several years ago and initial site investigations have been completed. Boral and the developer are working with each other towards agreement regarding the alignment and location of the new quarry access road. Council await an outcome on these negotiations.

Once agreement is met the DPA will be redrafted to reflect any changes required. The DPA will then be placed on public consultation. Following public consultation the DPA will be further redrafted (if required) and final approval sought from both Councils (Holdfast Bay/Marion) before forwarding to the Minister for consideration.

On 12 October 2018 Council sought Ministerial approval for the granting of a 12 month extension of time in which to compete the DPA.

The City of Marion is committed to providing updates and advocating on behalf of our community. Our role is to act as regulator on certain matters and facilitate the planning process for the site.

The developers have, in good faith, cleared the site.

It is important to note that they are under no obligation to do the work they have been doing and we are continuing to advocate for our community to make this site a vibrant centre.
