Current Planning System
South Australia’s current planning system helps shape the growth of South Australia and involves:
- Strategic Planning - a long term vision for land use across South Australia influencing how we live, work and move.
- Planning Policy - rules for the kind of development that should take place locally to respond to community needs.
- Development Assessment - a process for gaining approval for how buildings are shaped and land is used.
- Building Policy - minimum standards for building and construction work.
In 2020, South Australia will have a new, modernised planning system. To find out more please visit Planning Reforms.
