On Friday 19 March, the SA Government’s new state-wide Planning and Design Code will replace our current Development Plan.
Every property in the City of PAE will be rezoned to a new “Code” zone and all new development applications will be considered against the new rules using a centralised lodgement and assessment system.
The Code will change the fees for development applications and when and how public notification occurs. One of the more visible changes will be that when a development application requires public notification, a sign will be placed on the land where the development is proposed.
The State Government’s reform of the planning system began in 2013. Over the course of the reform program, we have made many submissions and representations to try to ensure the best possible outcomes for our community and that the new planning rules remain reflective of local issues and conditions.
We’ll be monitoring the development outcomes that the Code delivers and will seek the Government’s support for future amendments to the Code if required.
