Do I need building approval?
If you're planning on undertaking development, you may need approval before you get started. Find out if you need approval through the new SA planning system.
For more information on Council acquired approvals and regulations, such as land division and owner and builder information, you can find these below.
Building a fence
Not sure if you need approval for building a fence? Find out if you need development approval as well as approval from neighbours if building on a common boundary.
A land division is the division of land into at least two allotments, or a realignment of boundaries between at least two existing allotments.
Owner and builder information
If you're undertaking building work on your own property you may require the services of a registered professional.
Building a dam
Any water development, such as building a dam, that collects, directs or diverts water may require development approval or a permit.
If you're looking to change the use of your land, such as vineyard development, you may require development approval before you do so.
Shipping container and skip bin placement
You'll need a permit to temporarily place a shipping container or skip bin on a footpath, road or council reserve.
