Pre-lodgement Case Management Service

Improving design and planning outcomes for developments in metropolitan Adelaide


The pre-lodgement service is a free, voluntary and confidential process in which proponents and key decision-makers work together to streamline development applications.

The pre-lodgement service aims to:

  • reduce assessment time of development proposals
  • provide progressive certainty by resolving planning and design issues up front
  • facilitate pre-lodgement agreements that eliminate the need for agency referrals
  • allow proponents to obtain feedback from SCAP during the development of their proposal
  • advise proponents on how to submit a complete application when and where as required.
