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.
