Pre-lodgement Case Management

The pre-lodgement service was introduced to development in metropolitan Adelaide to improve design and planning outcomes. The pre-lodgement service is a free, voluntary and confidential process in which proponents and key decision-makers work together to streamline development applications. The service aims to:

  • reduce assessment time of development proposals
  • provide progressive certainty by resolving planning and design issues up front
  • facilitate pre-lodgement agreements that eliminate the need for agency referrals
  • allow proponents to obtain feedback from DAC during the development of their proposal
  • advise proponents on how to submit a complete application when and where as required.
