Amendments to development plans

Development plan amendment practitioner's guide

The Practitioner's guide is an online technical guide to help qualified planning practitioners prepare development plan amendments (DPAs).

People who are not planning practitioners can get an understanding of development plans from About development plans and view the Guide to development plans and development plan amendments (660.2 KB PDF). This publication uses non-technical language to explain the purpose of a development plan, the processes involved in a DPA, and how members of the public can comment on a proposed DPA.

Use of the guide

The Practitioner's guide assists planners working within the South Australian planning system to: 

  • prepare DPA documents 
  • conduct a DPA process
  • submit DPA documentation at key stages for approval.

The guide details the seven key stages of a DPA, from inception through to approval by the Minister responsible for planning and the Development Act 1993. It includes templates for the documents required by the minister and the state government planning agency, as well as a range of supporting documents and useful references.
