The pre-lodgement case management service was introduced to development in metropolitan Adelaide to improve design and planning outcomes. The service is a free, voluntary and confidential process in which proponents and key decision-makers work together to streamline development applications.
The service aims to:
- reduce assessment time of development proposals
- provide progressive certainty by resolving planning and design issues up front
- facilitate pre-lodgement agreements that eliminate the need for agency referrals
- allow proponents to obtain feedback from SCAP during the development of their proposal
- advise proponents on how to submit a complete application when and where as required.
