It’s time to have your say on the Mount Compass Code Amendment

South Australians are being encouraged to have their say about proposed changes to planning policy that would protect the future viability of Mount Compass’ 18-hole golf course and ensure any future development is in keeping with the character of the area.

Consultation is now open on the Mount Compass Golf Course Estate Code Amendment, and members of the community are being urged to submit feedback.

Minister for Planning and Local Government Vickie Chapman said the proposed Code Amendment aims to provide greater clarity on development potential in the area.

“The community has raised concerns about the type and scale of development that should be permitted in this area, which is why we want to hear from the public to ensure we get the balance right,” Minister Chapman said.

“These changes aim to protect the long-term viability of the 18-hole golf course while ensuring any future development reflects the character and amenity of the area,” she said.

Key aspects of the proposed Code Amendment include:

  • Rezoning the golf course and residential area from Neighbourhood Zone and Recreation Zone to Golf Course Estate Zone.
  • Introducing a ‘concept plan’ to show the location of an 18-hole golf course.

The Golf Course Estate Zone generally applies to golf course estates that include a mix of residential and golf course-related development. The Mount Compass Golf Course currently has the Recreation Zone applied.

During the consultation period, information sessions have been planned.
