Phase Two

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


In early 2020, the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 will became operational for all rural councils with small towns and settlements, revoking relevant 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 October 2019, the draft Planning and Design Code for Phase Two and Phase Three went on public consultation

Areas impacted

Phase Two will see the new planning system switch on for rural councils with small towns and settlements. This excludes regional towns and cities in rural areas.
