The report is published six-monthly to coincide with the availability of data for the end of calendar and financial years.

Minor infill refers to sites less than 4,000m2 involving the permanent removal of a dwelling (demolition), or resubdivision of a parcel to create an additional allotment/s with the original dwelling retained (resubdivision). It is estimated that minor infill represents around one-third of the total dwelling stock growth in metropolitan Adelaide each year.
Housing and employment land supply program
The program report:
- monitors the implementation of the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide
- identifies the total amount of land needed and sets annual rolling targets to reflect changes in the market and changes to the rate of population growth
- serves to ensure there is land capacity to meet annual housing and employment targets and the capacity is spread equitably across the region
- helps infrastructure agencies with planning to ensure that infrastructure and urban development is effectively and efficiently coordinated
- provides a spatial guide to local government to help align regional implementation strategies.
The report also identifies actions that state and local governments can take over a five-year period to implement planning policies and ensure that land supply meets demand and the necessary infrastructure can be provided.
