Offering a mix of affordable, social and market housing, Oaklands Green will help meet the needs of all South Australians through high-quality design, improved and new open spaces, better housing options and upgraded roads and new laneways.
The redevelopment will replace the existing 255 social housing dwellings, many of which were built in 1955, with 255 new dwellings, and build an additional 400 new private homes that are well planned and fit for purpose.
The project is self-funded, with no capital contribution by the South Australian Government. By redeveloping the site, the new Oaklands Green will become a lively and connected community, with better access to Oaklands Railway Station, local shops and parks. This includes improvements to Rajah Reserve and Bombay Street Reserve, also allowing better access to Oaklands Wetlands and Reserve.
Existing tenants and surrounding neighbours will play an important role in shaping the future of the new neighbourhood. There will be opportunities for you to have your say around the vision and design of the project.
The new Oaklands Green neighbourhood will include 3.4 hectares of greener parks and reserves, streets and paths for walking and biking.
Oaklands Green will ensure the neighbourhood is well planned, inclusive, connected and sustainable.
