Let us know what you think of South Australia’s new draft Planning and Design Code for the outback, which proposes new planning and development 'rules' for land outside of council boundaries.
What is being decided?
We are currently preparing a single set of planning ‘rules’ for assessing development applications across the state, known as the Planning and Design Code (the Code).
The Code is being developed in three stages, commencing with the Code in the outback (land outside of council boundaries) and then progressing to the Code in regional areas before moving to the Code in metropolitan areas.
As part of the first stage of the Code’s development, we are deciding on new planning policy to guide future development in the outback regions of South Australia and protect key infrastructure and natural resources. This will include new and amended planning zones.
To help you get involved and have your say we have prepared the following resources;
- Draft Planning and Design Code for the Outback
- Community Guide to the Planning and Design Code in the Outback
- Practitioner’s Guide to the Planning and Design Code in the Outback
- Map of proposed zones and overlays in the outback Code
To tell us what you think about the new planning and development ‘rules’ for the outback:

Community information sessions on the Planning and Design Code for the outback will be held in Coober Pedy, Andamooka, Maree and Yunta in early March 2019. More details coming soon.
How can your input influence the decision?
Your input will ensure that the new planning and development rules for the outback meet the planning needs of rural South Australians and address planning issues relevant to land outside of council boundaries.
A report on feedback received on the Planning and Design Code for the outback will be released and published on the SA Planning Portal at the close of the consultation.
The first generation of the Code for South Australia will be in effect on 1 July 2020 and available on the SA Planning Portal.
