Planning & Design Code

A new Planning Scheme for Coorong District Council – how will it affect your land, your zoning, your future development rights…?

The SA Government is undertaking a comprehensive overhaul and review of the Planning Scheme across the State, with the aim to introduce a quicker, more simplified and more consistent planning system.

The current Development Plan (the zoning document that has zones and policy to guide authorities when assessing development applications) is being completely replaced by a new codified version called the Planning & Design Code.

This will affect all property owners.

While the SA Government advises that the Planning & Design Code would replace your current zone with ‘a similar zone’, the Coorong District Council urges all land owners to review the Planning & Design Code in relation to zone and policy changes that affect your land.

The draft Planning & Design Code is now available for the public to review and make submission. Submissions must be lodged by 29 November 2019.

You can access a copy of the Planning & Design Code via the State Government Have Your Say website at https://www.saplanningportal.sa.gov.au/have_your_say/Draft_Planning_and_Design_Code_for_South_Australia.

Please direct any enquiries to the SA Department for Planning, Development and Infrastructure, through the following means:

Written submissions on the draft Planning & Design Code must be lodged with the SA Department for Planning, Development and Infrastructure, via:

It is the SA Government’s aim to bring the Planning & Design Code into operation on 1 April 2020.

DPTI will be hosting a Community Information Session to be held on Tuesday 8th October 2019 at 5pm in the Tailem Bend Town Hall. We encourage you all to come along!
