Changes to Development & Planning

31st July 2020
Are you ready?

South Australia’s urban and regional planning system is currently undergoing its biggest reform in over 25 years.

The State Planning Commission is leading the change. The resulting planning system will be underpinned by the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (SA) (PDI Act) which introduces a raft of new planning tools.

The new planning and development system will affect how development policy is formed and amended, and how development applications are lodged and assessed.

The new planning system is set to be implemented for the Regional Council of Goyder on 31 July 2020. Progress on the new planning system is located on the State Government Planning Portal.

For more Information see Council's The New Planning Code page.
