New Planning & Design Code

3rd July 2020
A new planning and development system will offer a single set of planning policies for assessing applications across the state.

The Planning and Design Code (the Code) is the cornerstone of South Australia’s new planning and development system and will offer a single set of planning policies for assessing applications across the state.

To ensure that all South Australians are confident and familiar with the new planning system, access to the online Code is now available for communities in Phase One (Outback Areas) and Phase Two (Rural Areas) via the new ePlanning platform.

The Code is scheduled to go live across rural South Australia on 31 July 2020.

A series of community webinars to support the public familiarisation stage for the online Code (Outback and Rural Areas) will be held in July.

These sessions will explore how to access South Australia’s online Planning and Design Code, how to navigate the Code and understand how the Code applies to rural South Australia.

Dates are:

8 July 2020 - 1pm – 2pm

14 July 2020 - 6pm – 7pm

20 July 2020 - 3pm – 4pm

27 July 2020 - 5pm – 6pm
