Inner and Middle Metropolitan Corridor (Design) amendment

Current status

The Minister for Planning has released the Inner and Middle Metropolitan Corridor (Design) Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (2.4 MB PDF) for public consultation from 30 May 2017 to 25 July 2017.

Interim Operation

The amendment is in operation on an interim (temporary) basis for 12 months from 30 May 2017. This means the policy changes in the amendment are in effect while the Minister for Planning consults with the community and considers the amendment. Interim operation is only used when the Minister considers it necessary to ensure orderly and proper development in the area affected by the DPA.


The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide focuses on the delivery of a new urban form for Greater Adelaide to produce a more liveable, sustainable and competitive city. Key policies encourage a more compact urban form with increased densities of development at strategic locations close to public transport, particularly in the CBD and along significant urban boulevards where the interface with lower rise areas can be managed. These strategic directions are being implemented through a number of planning reforms including this and other DPAs.

Purpose of the amendment

The Inner and Middle Metropolitan Corridor (Design) DPA (2.4 MB PDF) proposes new planning policies for medium developments to improve their design quality and integration with nearby low scale residential areas, provide better outcomes for local streetscapes and the public realm, improve the form and appearance of new developments and provide better relationships between nearby medium developments.

Area affected by the amendment

The community information sheet (520.7 KB PDF) includes a map of the areas affected and also provides details about the proposed amendment and the amendment process. Individual community information sheets have also been prepared to outline the amendments for each affected Council area:
