Lyndoch Development Plan Amendment attracts opposition

More than 20 people addressed a public meeting on Monday night voicing their opposition to The Barossa Council’s plan to rezone a portion of land in Lyndoch for housing.

Thirty six public responses and 19 agency submissions were made to council during the consultation process, many opposing the proposal.

Council announced their plan last year to rezone 8.35 hectares of land on Gilbert Street and Gods Hill Road from primary production to township.

The proposal would result in 80 residential blocks to provide for township growth and an estimated 224 people.

An analysis of the Lyndoch DPA states the town is able to accommodate urban growth within the proposed area and contributes to the targets established for the Barossa Region.

It further states, the Barossa and Northern Adelaide regions have a significant role to play in delivering the targets of the 30 Year Plan and Lyndoch is likely to accommodate a specific niche in the market, having regard to competing developments within the broader northern Adelaide region.

However, residents are opposing the development – sighting a number of issues including bushfires, water supply, amenities and detraction of the general appearance of the township and region.
