Zoning and planning
Seaview Rd, West Beach, is located in the Residential zone 17 — Western Edge of the City of Charles Sturt development plan. This zone restricts site areas to at least 350sq m for detached dwellings and 300sq m for semi-detached dwellings. Any homes that have a frontage to Seaview Rd must be setback by at least 5m. Any building work (except for fences) on properties that have a frontage to a coastal reserve or zone must be set back at least 8m.
There are a large number of reserves in West Beach, including Barratt Reserve and the West Beach Recreation Reserve. Adelaide Shores Golf Park and Glenelg Golf Course are to the south of the property. For shopping options, Harbour Town is in the area adjacent the airport, and Glenelg’s Jetty Rd is nearby.
Future development of homes that exceed two storeys in height ‘‘are generally inappropriate’’ but the development plan says they may be accepted in some circumstances.
