1 Development that contributes to the desired character of the policy area.


This policy area is a greenfields development site that will deliver a broad hectare, high quality, master-
planned residential development as an extension to the Rural City of Murray Bridge. The development will
undertake an orderly and integrated approach to the delivery of land and infrastructure for housing, open
space and other uses that will provide the opportunity to accommodate significant residential development
for between 8,000 and 10,000 people, in stages over 20 years, in accordance with Concept Plan Map
MuBr/15 - Southern Area Residential.

The layout and development of the policy area will create an attractive, well landscaped and liveable
environment that conveys a sense of place to residents and visitors. The pattern of development will
establish movement networks for vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Public open space will be
provided in the form of reserves that encourage linkages with retail and community facilities and areas that
provide for passive and active recreation. Areas of public open space will provide an attractive focal point for
residents and provide an appropriate setting for dwellings at higher densities, whilst encouraging a sense of
space for residents and visitors.

The land division patterns will be responsive to the landform and prevailing natural features and will be
designed harmoniously with the topography to maximise solar orientation and minimise the need for
excavation and fill. Areas of native vegetation will be retained and protected by the appropriate design and
siting of allotments and associated infrastructure. Roads will follow the contours to minimise the need for
excavation and fill and larger sized allotments will be located on steeper slopes. Land will be divided in a
pattern that capitalises on public views to attractive areas of the surrounding rural landscape and maximise
opportunities presented by watercourses through the creation of integrated stormwater and open space

Establishing appropriate relationships between built form, movement networks and areas of communal and
public open spaces as well as between individual buildings will be paramount considerations. Built form will
be appropriate to the size of the allotment on which it is to be constructed and the streetscape character so
as not to appear overwhelming with respect to neighbouring buildings and structures.

Residential development will comprise a range of dwelling types, including affordable housing. Higher
density residential development is envisaged in areas adjoining public transport routes, centre and
community facilities and areas of public open space and recreation in order to provide an aesthetically
pleasant setting for those dwellings, ensure residents with reduced private open space have easy access to
public reserves, facilitate access to service and facilities for a greater number of people and to provide a
sense of place for residents. It will also improve opportunities for passive energy conservation in buildings,
facilitate passive surveillance of adjacent reserves and corridors and reduce potential for overshadowing and
overlooking of any adjacent lower level residential development and private open space areas. Localities
adjacent shopping and community facilities are also suitable for housing for aged persons that incorporate
multi-level accommodation and associated facilities.

Water sensitive urban design is an important element of development in the policy area. Extensive low lying
drainage basin areas will be formed into water storage wetlands, receiving surface water channelled in open
swales from within the policy area and potentially treated waste water from a local or township wastewater
treatment plant for reuse on the racecourse as shown on Concept Plan Map MuBr/14 - Equine Recreation
and throughout the network of open landscaped areas.

Residential areas are protected from the transportation impacts of the South-Eastern Freeway by a 500
metre wide visual buffer. Existing native vegetation within this buffer will be conserved with cleared areas
utilised for pasture, horse trails, horse training and agistment fields, and sand and cross country training
courses supported by associated horse related recreational activities. Landscaped buffers and appropriate
