Developed by Land Management Corporation, the South Australian Government’s land development agency, Lochiel Park is located eight kilometers north east of Adelaide CBD. Lochiel Park is LMC’s flagship residential sustainability development and a demonstration of many ecologically sustainable initiatives, with the 106 home sites showcasing leading edge design principles.
Only 4.25 ha of the 15 ha site will be allocated for the residential component with over 10 ha being incorporated and protected as Lochiel Park Parklands, linking directly to the River Torrens Linear Park. The parkland area will include wetland and revegetation in the form of an “urban forest”, making a significant contribution to biodiversity enhancement and community recreation opportunities.
