South Australia’s Strategic Plan is comprised of 100 targets. These targets are specific and measurable and enable us to measure our progress towards achieving the Plan’s visions and goals.

Each target is reported on through this section of the website. Data is analysed and uploaded as it becomes available.

Target:

68. Urban development:

By 2036, 70% of all new housing in metropolitan Adelaide will be being built in established areas



Key Measure

 

Explanatory Comments

This target aligns with the 30-year Plan for Greater Adelaide.  The established areas of metropolitan Adelaide, as defined for the purposes of measuring this target, are shown here and are the same as the 30 Year Plan. This definition excludes fringe development areas to the north and south of Adelaide, and the townships of Gawler and Mount Barker and recently completed broadhectare developments on the fringe.

The key measure shows the share of net new dwelling construction in the established areas of metropolitan Adelaide relative to the dwellings built each year across the remainder of Greater Adelaide (which includes fringe, township and rural living locations). The target specifies that 70% of all new housing in metropolitan Adelaide will be built in established areas by 2036.

In 2010 (the baseline year), 57% of dwellings were built in the established areas of metropolitan Adelaide.  In 2013, 60% of net additional dwellings (excludes demolition replacements) were built in the established areas of metropolitan Adelaide. In gross terms, 68% of all dwellings built (includes demolition replacements) were in the established areas of metropolitan Adelaide.

Data note

For this analysis 1700 demolitions have been estimated in the ‘established areas’ of metropolitan Adelaide in 2013. This is based on the results of Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure's most recent demolition and re-subdivision analysis covering the period 2008-14.
