Our New System

Welcome to South Australia’s new planning system.

The passage of the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 begins the biggest overhaul to South Australia’s planning system in over 20 years.

A more efficient and effective planning program promises to shape the future of South Australia, revolutionising the way planning decisions are made.

It will help to attract competitive investment and allow world class development to occur right here, as well as supporting and enhancing SA’s already great liveability.

Set to be progressively delivered over a number of years, the program begins now with a focus on establishing the framework to create a one-stop SA Planning Portal. This online platform will reduce costs for applicants, councils and ratepayers, delivering faster turnarounds and tracking of decisions.

It’s the first step towards the best planning system in the nation.
