Planning and Design Code
A single set of planning 'rules' to enable high quality development
The Planning and Design Code (the Code) is the cornerstone of South Australia’s new planning system, and will offer a single set of planning ‘rules’ for assessing development applications across the state. The Code will replace all South Australian Development Plans by mid-2020.
It will also make the planning process quicker, simpler and more equitable than ever before, affording South Australian’s greater access to planning information that is consistent and clear. This in turn will help the community to navigate the planning system when building a house, developing a business, or progressing large commercial developments.
The Code is being progressively introduced across South Australia, commencing in the outback before moving to regional council areas and concluding in Greater Adelaide.
Consultation is now open on Phase One of the Planning and Design Code, which proposes new planning rules and policy for the outback. These rules aim to better meet the needs of rural South Australians and address planning issues relevant to land outside of council boundaries. You are invited to provide feedback until Friday 29 March 2019.
Consultation has now closed on the Productive Economy Policy Discussion Paper which explored the ways in which the new planning system can support South Australia's economy via the Planning and Design Code. A summary of community feedback will be published here in due course.
