Monitor South Australia's planning system in action


These tools can be used by planning professionals and members of the community to gain a bird’s eye view of our planning system in action.

The tools can be used to track current development activity across the state, see what what planning rules apply to a particular location or determine whether or not approval should be sought for a home improvement.


About this tool

The 3D Development Activity Tracker (DAT) shows a simplified 3D representation of major development activity in the City of Adelaide and the designated urban corridor zones. Each project is graphically represented by a footprint of the proposed development (or the land parcel boundary) extruded to the proposed height.

How to use this tool

Click the developments shown on the map which:

  • are located in Adelaide City or Inner Metropolitan Adelaide
  • hold a valid planning consent issued by the state planning authority or relevant council

About this tool

Minor renovations or small building projects at home such as the erection of a shed, retaining wall or solar panels do not normally require approval before they can be built.

The Virtual House tool guides you through the types of developments which do not require approval.

How to use this tool

Type in your property address and select the part of the house you are planning to build or change. You will  be shown whether approval is required or not with advice on next steps.

Contact

Contact your local council if you're not sure whether approval is needed or have a question about what to do next

About this tool

The digital 3D Adelaide Model assists Design Review, development assessment, strategic planning and decision making in our new planning system. It brings together a high quality dataset covering Metropolitan Adelaide with the latest in spatial and visualisation technologies.

How to use this tool

To assist the development assessment and approval process, applicants can now submit 3D building models. These building models can be added to 3D Adelaide to help quantify aspects such as shadowing, lines of sight, view corridors, streetscape views and scale.
