South Australia’s new planning system for rural areas is now operational, revoking Council’s Development Plan and allowing development applications to be submitted and tracked online for the first time via a new ePlanning platform.
The ePlanning platform implemented by the State Government brings together the new PlanSA Portal, the online Planning and Design Code, the South Australian Property and Planning Atlas and the electronic Development Application Processing system.
The new planning system aims to deliver clear and consistent planning policies across South Australia that are easily accessible and widely available. Council will continue to provide development assessment services under this new system.
New applications lodged from 31 July 2020
To access the State Government’s new planning system including lodging a development application, or finding out what policies may apply to your address or development, please visit SA Planning Portal or Plan SA.
For more information or assistance accessing the Portal or Code contact PlanSA Helpline on 1800 752 664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications can also be lodged with Council in electronic or hard copy which will incur an additional processing fee. Forms for this can be accessed through the Land Use, Planning and Development sections located on the following pages Standard Forms and Information Sheets.
Existing applications lodged prior to 31 July 2020
Existing applications will continue to be assessed according to the Development Act 1993 and Council’s Development Plan. To check the progress of applications submitted before 31st July 2020, please refer to the development register or contact the Council Office on 08 8832 0000.
