State Planning Reform

Have your say on South Australia's new planning system


Project Background and Information

South Australia’s urban and regional planning system is currently undergoing its biggest reform in over 25 years.

The State Planning Commission is leading the change. The resulting planning system (that will be operational by 1 July 2020) will be underpinned by the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (SA) (PDI Act) which introduces a raft of new planning tools.

The new planning and development system will affect how development policy is formed and amended, and how development applications are lodged and assessed in the future.

Planning and Design Code

One of the biggest elements of the planning reform involves replacing all 68 Council Development Plans with one single state-wide planning rule book – the Planning and Design Code (the 'Code').

On 1 October 2019, the State Planning Commission released the Code for public consultation. The City of Adelaide is a 'phase 3' council, which means that the Code will be out for consultation until 28 February 2020.

Please note: The Code will result in changes that will impact every property in some way. These will include:

  • Changes to public notification of development applications;

  • Removal of your current right to appeal against most development applications on a neighbouring site.

  • Possible changes to your zoning

  • Likely changes to the policies which apply to your property.

Have your say on the proposed Planning and Design Code for South Australia

This is the latest stage of consultation on the implementation of a new planning system for South Australian.

The State Planning Commission is responsible for all consultation on the Code and all responses should be submitted to the Commission via the SA Planning Portal.

The City of Adelaide encourages you to find out how the new Code may impact your property and provide feedback to the State Government.
