Development Planning Portal

South Australia is currently undergoing the biggest modernisation of its planning system in 20 years.

A modern planning system is fundamental for South Australia, as it will ensure our state remains liveable, prosperous and vibrant: and can meet the future demands of our great state. The renewed planning system is underpinned by the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 and introduces a raft of new tools and a 24/7 digital ePlanning system that will allow South Australians quick and easy access.

The new planning system seeks to achieve better outcomes for South Australia's economy, environment and communities.

Lodging an application can now be completed online via the SA Planning Portal.
