Draft Planning and Design Code for South Australia

10 October 2019

The State Government welcomes the community's comments on the Draft Planning and Design Code which will replace all Development Plans across the State.

The Planning and Design Code (the P&D Code) will replace 72 development plans with one universal, state-wide planning policy document. It is being developed in 3 phases and will become operational by July 2020.

On 1 July 2019, Phase One of the P&D Code became operational for ‘out of council’ areas.

On 1 October 2019, the State Planning Commission released the draft P&D Code for Phase Two (Rural Areas) and Phase Three (Urban Areas) for public consultation. Light Regional Council is contained within the ‘Phase Three’ area and the public consultation period for this closes on 28 February 2020.

The draft P& D Code can be viewed HERE 

Consultation on the draft P&D Code provides an important opportunity to have input into the way we live, work and move in the future. For more information, please contact the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) or the State Planning Commission via:

Code Hotline: 1800 318 102

Email enquiries: DPTI.PlanningReform@sa.gov.au

People who can't use the online form can email: DPTI.PlanningReformSubmissions@sa.gov.au


Please note:

· Council understands that the draft P&D Code available on public consultation is subject to correction at any time and neither DPTI, the State Planning Commission nor Council can at this stage say what its final form will be; and

· Council will separately be considering the draft P&D Code with a view to making its own submission on this document prior to the 28 February 2020 deadline.
