Aligning development plans with the planning strategy
The planning strategy for South Australia is regularly updated to reflect changes in planning direction. All local councils must make sure their development plans are consistent with these changes. This process is set out in section 30 of the Development Act 1993, and is also known as a section 30 review.
Local councils must:
- review the changes in the relevant volume of the strategy against the planning policies in the development plan
- prepare a strategic directions report that describes how the changes will be incorporated into the development plan
- follow the step by step guide to compile the report
- refer to the Residential development capacity handbook
- use the template to finalise and submit the report.
Councils must submit their reports to the Minister for Planning for consideration and approval.
