Council and the Minister for Planning have been working on a program of Development Plan Amendments (DPA's) to improve city design, support residential development, support the health and education sectors and retain our heritage assets.
On 29 May 2017, the Minister for Planning announced that he has approved several DPAs, released a new Heritage Places (Institutions and Colleges) DPA for consultation and is progressing with a number of other planning initiatives to plan for the future of Adelaide and South Australia. I have attached with this correspondence a document summarising these items and where you can find more information.
