Kangaroo Island Sustainable Futures amendment

Current status

The Kangaroo Island Sustainable Futures Development Plan amendment (929.1 KB PDF) was approved by the Minister for Planning by notice in the South Australian Government Gazette on 19 February 2014.

Purpose of the amendment

The DPA is part of a larger planning project that includes a draft amendment to the Kangaroo Island Plan and the draft Kangaroo Island Structure Plan - Unlocking Opportunities.

The DPA will help achieve key planning directions as set out in the draft Structure Plan and proposes to provide additional opportunities for development linked to tourism, rural industries (including value-adding) and the main gateways (wharfs and airport) onto the island. The island's key scenic, conservation and rural landscapes will be maintained. The DPA does not directly affect existing towns and settlements, aside from the Penneshaw and Kingscote wharf areas.
