New vision for South Australia’s planning system

12 July 2018

A new vision for South Australia’s planning and design system has been drafted to ensure the long-term liveability, sustainability and prosperity of our state.

This vision is articulated through sixteen draft State Planning Policies that are now out for consultation on the SA Planning Portal and yourSAy website.

These policies represent the highest level of policy in our new planning system.

As a statutory instrument under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016, the draft State Planning Policies outline the planning and design ambitions for South Australia and will guide both regional and metropolitan planning and development in the future.

Importantly, they set out for the first time a state-wide framework for land use planning in South Australia that aims to address our economic, environmental and social planning priorities, including housing supply and diversity, climate change and strategic transport infrastructure.

Community feedback on these policies will ensure that South Australia’s planning vision reflects the aspirations of the people who live and work in our state and who are invested in its future.

Consultation closes midnight on 7 September 2018.
