MEDIUM to high density housing will make up nearly one third of the Tonsley Park redevelopment proposed for the former Mitsubishi site.

About 2000 people are expected to live in 1000 townhouses and apartments planned along the western side of the 62 ha site alongside the Tonsley railway line, according to the State Government's Tonsley Park Development Plan Amendment for the area.

The development will include shops, light industry, student housing and possibly a hotel.

The new planning guidelines have been released for public consultation, the next step in the revamp of the old car plant bought by the State Government for $32.5 million in 2009.

It plans to spend $253 million developing the site over 20 years.

A new $125 million super-TAFE college, to replace campuses at Marleston, O'Halloran Hill and Panorama, and a $120 million Flinders University teaching and research centre will also be built at the site.

Last month the university lodged plans for its new Tonsley Park campus with the Development Assessment Commission.

The six-storey building, to be built along the eastern edge of the site near South Rd, would cater for about 2000 students and 150 staff.

The campus is expected to open in 2015. Community input into the plans closes on March 13.

The public is able to comment on the plans at a public meeting planned for Tuesday, March 26.
