A contemporary, coordinated way of delivering infrastructure
As part of the modernisation of South Australia’s planning system, a more equitable and transparent process for coordinating and delivering infrastructure will be introduced. This will help unlock investment across the state and create vibrant, safe, healthy and affordable neighbourhoods.
