SA Industry Breakfast: Planning Reforms – All welcome

Tuesday 24 September 2019 I 7:30am - 9:00am I The Playford, North Terrace

South Australia’s urban and regional planning system is undergoing its biggest reform in over 25 years. The resulting planning system - operational by 1 July 2020 - will be underpinned by the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (PDI Act) which introduces a raft of new planning tools.

The new planning and development system will affect how development policy is formed and amended, and how development applications are lodged and assessed.

The changes

Some of the changes to the Planning and Development system include:

    • The establishment of the State Planning Commission as the state's independent, principal planning body that provides advice and makes recommendations on the administration of the PDI Act.
    • A Community Engagement Charter released by the Minister for Planning, which seeks to increase community influence in the policy setting stage.
    • The PDI Act requires the Planning and Design Code to be created. This will become the state's single planning rulebook for assessing all development applications, removing the existing 72 Council specific Development Plans.
    • Establishing a professional accreditation scheme for planners and building surveyors to provide increased confidence for development applicants and communities that decisions are being made by qualified and experienced professionals who regularly undergo training and are audited for competency.
    • Deliver an online planning portal as a one-stop-shop for planning information and lodging and assessment of development applications

Planning and Design Code

There will be a phased approach to transitioning to the new planning system, implemented in three phases. Phase One outback areas became operational on 1 July 2019.

Phase Two regional council areas and Phase Three metropolitan council areas are due to be implemented in April 2020 and July 2020 respectively. Regional and metropolitan communities, councils and industry professionals will all use the new planning system under the PDI Act.

We invite you to join us for an overview of the planning reforms – the why, how it will roll out – and what exactly it means for consultants.
