Changes to the Development Plan

The Development Plan is the principal document that is used by Council Planners to assess Development Applications. This plan regulates land use and guides planning decisions within the Coorong District Council.

The Development Plan is reviewed from time to time, in accordance with the requirements of Section 30 in the Development Act 1993. The details of the review are summarised in the Strategic Directions Report. The Strategic Directions Report contains a Development Plan Amendment (DPA) program, outlining changes that will be made to the Development Plan over time.
