structures are sited and designed in such a way as to:

Urban Employment Zone

1 A policy area accommodating a range of low impact light industrial, commercial, warehouse, storage, tourist accommodation, cultural, entertainment and recreation uses.
2 Economic redevelopment and rehabilitation of the site of the former abattoir including the removal of non-functional and dilapidated structures and the remediation of contaminated land.
3 Buildings, facilities and car parks located and designed to complement the high quality natural environment and attractive elevated setting adjacent to the Onkaparinga River National Park.
4 Development that contributes to the desired character of the policy area.

Desired character

The policy area contains a former abattoir surrounded by generally open or undeveloped land. The site has a unique setting with prominent vistas to the coast and other parts of the council. It also forms a backdrop to the township of Old Noarlunga and the Onkaparinga River National Park.
A range of industry, commercial, tourist or community uses are envisaged to encourage investment towards total site redevelopment and rehabilitation of this site. In all cases the aim is to provide a form of development that is visually attractive and interesting and sits comfortably as part of this natural backdrop. Future development may comprise the demolition of part or all of the former abattoir and construction of new buildings designed to maximise the expansive available views in most directions.
The previous land uses in the policy area may have led to contamination of land and underlying groundwater within the area, therefore final development options will be partially determined by the extent of any contamination and the remediation of land within the area if or as required.
It is envisaged that the building form not be restricted to small scale, but is contemporary, carefully designed, and utilises a range of materials and colours to present interesting facades and respond to the hilltop setting.
Professionally designed landscaping will be employed to enhance the functionality and appearance of the site at close range and to screen larger building elements within the site when viewed from a distance.
The siting and design of buildings will respond to the
setting of the nearby St Phillip and St James church
and ensure sightlines of this building are not obscured.

Land Use
1 The following forms of development are envisaged in the policy area; subject to soil quality assessment
and adequate remediation prior to development:
▪ community centre
▪ entertainment, cultural and exhibition facility
▪ horticulture
▪ indoor recreation centre
▪ light industry
▪ place of worship
▪ recreation area
▪ service industry
▪ service trade premises
▪ store
▪ tourist development
▪ warehouse.
2 Other forms of employment generating development may be appropriate providing that:
(a) it provides a high level of amenity for users of the site
(b) environmental or bushfire risks are minimised
(c) environmental and recreation values of the Onkaparinga River National Park are complemented
(d) it does not adversely impact on views from the Old Noarlunga township.
Form and Character
3 Development should not be undertaken unless it is consistent with the desired character for the policy
4 Buildings should be sited and designed to complement the elevated natural setting and avoid obscuring views of the St Phillips and St James church from distant vantage points.
5 Development should ensure the removal of structures within the policy area that are dilapidated or have
no economic purpose.
