Phase Two

The second phase of South Australia’s new planning system comes into effect early 2020. 


In 2020, the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 will became operational for all regional council areas, revoking all remaining country development plans.

The implementation of Phase Two is the second milestone in delivering a new planning and development system for the state by July 2020.

On 1 July 2019, Phase One of the PDI Act implementation became operational for outback areas

Areas impacted


Phase Two will see the new planning system switch on in all regional council areas. Regional communities, councils and industry professionals will all use the new planning system under the PDI Act.
