Planning Reforms

The State Planning Commission has released the draft Planning and Design Code for public consultation.

The Planning and Design Code is the foundation of State Government’s new planning system, and is intended to offer a single and consolidated set of planning ‘rules’ for assessing development applications across the state.

Consultation for Phases 3 Council Areas, which includes the Town of Gawler, is open until 28 February 2019.

The State Government’s draft Planning and Design Code, as well as guiding material, is available from the SA Planning Portal via the link below:
