Inner and Middle Metropolitan Corridor (Design) amendment

Current status

The Inner and Middle Metropolitan Corridor (Design) Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (2.6 MB PDF) was approved by the Minister for Planning by notice in the South Australian Government Gazette on 19 December 2017.


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 (2.6 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.
