We want your feedback on rules for protecting our environment and natural resources under the new Planning and Design Code.

This engagement forms part of a new planning and development system for South Australia.

What is being decided?

We want to hear your views on what you believe are the key issues and opportunities in planning policy which relates to our natural resources and environment.

The Natural Resources and Environment Policy Discussion Paper outlines the key issues our state is facing in managing resources like land and water as well as planning for climate change. It looks at how critical environmental issues will affect or be affected by planning policy in the state’s new planning system.

You can join the conversation about our State’s natural resources and environment by reading the policy discussion paper and background paper, or you can opt to read an overview of these two documents in the discussion paper summary.

Watch the video in the South Australia's New Planning System tab to find out more about the core elements of the planning system.
