Introducing South Australia's new planning and development system
South Australia is currently undergoing the biggest modernisation of its planning system in 20 years.
A modern planning system is fundamental for South Australia, as it will ensure our state remains liveable, prosperous and vibrant; and can meet the future demands of our great state.
The renewed planning system is underpinned by the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 and introduces a raft of new tools and a 24/7 digital ePlanning system that will allow South Australians quick and easy access.
On 1 July 2019, Phase 1 of the new planning system became operational in outback areas.
