Merit Use Proposal for Public Consultation

Parclay Pty Ltd is the current under-leasehold holder of the site at 240 Morphett Road, which is leased from Adelaide Airport Ltd (AAL). The site presently contains a purpose built manufacturing and office facility which was occupied by Manuele Engineering.

The City of West Torrens proposes to acquire the under-lease, and utilise the site as a Council Works Depot. Parclay Pty Ltd, on behalf of the City of West Torrens, applied to Adelaide Airport Limited (AAL) to change the use of land and associated buildings within the Morphett Precinct to a Public Works Depot.

AECOM Australia Pty Ltd (AECOM) has been engaged by AAL to assist in its assessment of the proposal against the provisions of the Adelaide Airport Master Plan 2014 in accordance with the requirements of the Airports Act 1996.

The proposed change of use is considered to be a ‘merit use’ under the Adelaide Airport Master Plan, requiring agency and public consultation period, and an assessment against the relevant provisions of the Master Plan.

This report has been prepared to consolidate information submitted in support of the proposal and enable stakeholders and members of the public the opportunity to review the proposed development during the public consultation period. The report includes:

  • A description of the subject land and locality
  • Details of the proposed change of use
  • Summary of the assessment process
  • An outline of the relevant provisions of the Master Plan.

Following the agency and public consultation period and review of any submissions received, a formal assessment of the proposed development against the provisions of the Master Plan and impacts on aviation operations will be undertaken by AAL.
