A phased approach to transitioning to the new planning system
The new planning system will be implemented in three phases across South Australia. Once completed the Development Act 1993 will be replaced by the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016.
On 1 October 2019, the draft Planning and Design Code for Phase Two and Phase Three went on public consultation.
A phased implementation approach helps us to progressively introduce the new system while supporting a smooth transition for councils, practitioners and the community. Underpinning each phase is conversion and retirement of council Development Plans to the Planning and Design Code.
