Environment and Food Production Areas

Protecting and preserving our vital food and agricultural lands


Environment and Food Production Areas (EFPAs) were introduced under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 on 1 April 2017 to protect vital agricultural lands surrounding metropolitan Adelaide from urban encroachment.

The EFPAs are designed to operate in a similar way to the Character Preservation Areas in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, which have been successfully in place since 2012.

On 1 July 2019,  Phase One of the new planning system became operational in outback areas, but the EFPAs do not apply.
