Draft Planning and Design Code
The Planning, Development and Infrastructure (PDI) Act 2016 will progressively replace the Development Act 1993, providing a new framework for the creation of planning policy, assessment of development applications and monitoring of development compliance. The latest implementation phase of the planning reforms involves the release of Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the Planning and Design Code. Phase 3 of the Code will apply to City of Prospect (and all of metropolitan Adelaide) from September or October 2020 (subject to gazettal).
Consultation on the Draft Planning and Design Code Phase 3 was undertaken between October 2019-February 2020 by the State Planning Commission. Consultation on the Code has now concluded and the State Government/State Planning Commission is reviewing submissions received.
