The Planning and Design Code - How will it work?

25 May 2018

An important technical discussion paper on how South Australia’s new Planning and Design Code will operate in practice is now out for consultation.

The paper has been written with planning practitioners in mind and sets out the proposed functional framework for the Code, including what it will include and what it will not include.

Significantly it describes what the first generation of the Code will look like in 2020, such as how it will be structured, maintained and delivered, and how South Australia’s new ePlanning system will dramatically change the way development applications are lodged, assessed and archived.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure is seeking genuine feedback from the planning community on the technical framework described in this paper: The Planning and Design Code - How will it work? (PDF, 1445 KB)

All interested parties are invited to lodge a submission via the Have Your Say page by 22 July 2018.

Further information on the state’s new planning rulebook is available on the Planning and Design Code page.
