Area action plans developed in consultation with communities for each area set out which land is for house building, green space, schools, roads and industry.
Keepmoat, Strata, Homegroup, and Priority Space (KSHP) who are our city wide lead developer partners are developing a number of sites across the city for housing, including Kings Park.
