South Australians get a second chance to comment on the Planning and Design Code

The State Planning Commission has announced that South Australians will have another opportunity to provide feedback on the revised draft Planning and Design Code in early November 2020, for an additional six-week period.

We understand that the revised Code will include details of the Commission’s proposed policy improvements.

The revised Code will be made available on the Plan SA portal. The exact details of the consultation period and how to review the revised Code and submit comments will be announced closer to the commencement of the consultation period.

This additional consultation will provide everyone with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with and comment on the revised planning policies for their area and experience how the new planning system will operate once implemented.

According to the State Planning Commission, it is expected that the Minister for Planning and Local Government, the Honourable Vickie Chapman MP, will endorse the updated plan and that the new planning system will be implemented in the first quarter of 2021.

Council will continue to monitor and provide feedback to the State Government as changes are proposed and implemented.

BACKGROUND

South Australia is currently undergoing the biggest modernisation of its planning system in 20 years. The State Government’s new planning system seeks to achieve better outcomes for South Australia's economy, environment and communities.

A major change is the creation of a Planning and Design Code (Code) which is a State Government initiative. The Code will become the state's single planning rulebook for assessing all development applications, removing the existing 72 Council specific Development Plans across ALL council areas.

This change will affect every property in South Australia and will bring significant change to the way new development proposals are handled and the type and scale of development that is allowed. With the revocation of Council’s Development Plan and its replacement with the State-wide draft Code, every property will have its zoning and planning provisions changed to some degree.
