Planning and Design Code

On 1 October 2019, the draft Planning and Design Code (the Code) went on public consultation for Phase Two (Rural Areas) and Phase Three (Urban Areas).

The Code is the cornerstone of the new planning system that will help revolutionise the way that development is regulated in South Australia. Consultation on the Code represents an important opportunity for South Australians to influence the way we live, work and move.

The Code is being developed in three phases and by July 2020, the Code will replace 72 development plans with one universal, state-wide document. On 1 July 2019, Phase One of the Code became operational for out of council areas.
