This section deals with land-use planning and the assessment of development proposals. Most of the law in this area is contained in the Development Act 1993 (SA) and all references are to the Development Act unless otherwise stated.
The new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (SA) was assented to on 17 April 2017, but will be implemented across 5 years. More information about the progress of implementation can be found on the SA Planning Portal. The current planning system under the Development Act 1993 (SA) will be progressively replaced by the new system.
