The Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (PDI Act 2016) represents the blueprint for South Australia’s new planning system.

The Act came into operation on 1 April 2017 and will now be introduced in stages over the next 3 years.

The Act promises to change the way planning decisions are made in SA, including:

  • establishing a new, independent State Planning Commission
  • establishing a new Community Engagement Charter
  • delivering new planning tools for professionals and the public
  • developing new, faster assessment pathways and a professional accreditation system.
