Building and development
Getting ready for the new planning system
South Australia is currently transitioning to a new planning system. The PlanSA website provides the entry point to the new system.
Development approval processes
The number of consents needed for Development Approval depends on the type of development.
Development, building and land division applications
All new development, including extensions and some modifications to existing buildings, requires approval under the Development Act.
Owner and builder information
Undertaking building work on your own property may require the services of registered professionals.
You can seek approval for development that is non-complying, or not envisaged within a specific zone.
A land division is the division of land into at least two allotments, or a realignment of boundaries between at least two existing allotments.
Heritage building advice
Heritage Grants for listed properties may be provided for maintenance improvement works that exceed the owner(s) funding capability. Projects should be essential to the conservation value of the property or prevent further deterioration.
