Adelaide’s largest site on the market

A 4.5-hectare site in Flagstaff Hill has hit the market, billed as “the biggest land sale in the southern area” of Adelaide.

The 3 Bonneyview Road property is 14 kilometres from the Adelaide CBD and offers 180-degree city and sea views.

Used previously for grazing, it has a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with four parking spaces. The owners have reportedly lived at the site since 1985, the same year the house was built.

An application was submitted to Onkaparinga Council in early 2015 to have the property divided into six lots – one taking in the house, and five vacant land lots.

It was rejected on the grounds that it sought “addition development potential (through the creation of allotments suitable for residential purposes) within a zone that strongly discourages such outcomes”, and was “seriously at variance” with the Onkaparinga Development Plan.

“The former State Planning Authority and now Development Assessment Commission have carefully and rigorously enforced the provisions of the Hills Face Zone to ensure that development outcomes are consistent with current policies where new allotments for residential or rural living purposes are simply not anticipated within the zone,” the assessment report said.
