Playford Alive

Australia's most innovative residential renewal project is being undertaken in the City of Playford.

Approved by both Council and the State Government, the project is creating a state-of-the-art residential environment for northern Adelaide, which is expanding rapidly and making a huge contribution to the state economy.

The City of Playford has committed up to $23 million over the next 10 years towards a project that could involve up to $1 billion in public and private investment.

The project will include:

  • Regenerating the Peachey Belt (Smithfield Plains and Davoren Park) and developing new areas for housing north of Curtis Rd and west of Stebonheath Rd.
  • An increase in the population from 13,000 to 30,000
  • More than 4000 new homes
  • Improved community facilities, including schools and training facilities, shopping, health and welfare
  • Environmentally friendly and energy efficient initiatives

Council and State Government agencies are jointly managing the project.
