Development Plan Amendments

From time to time, Development Plans are updated through the rezoning of land or rewriting of existing policies.  This update process is known as a Development Plan Amendment (DPA), and must follow the requirements of the Development Act 1993.  While the Minister for Planning or Council can initiate a DPA, only the Minister can approve a DPA.

Council currently has one active DPA as listed below.

Southern Heritage Places Development Plan Amendment

Pursuant to Sections 24 and 25 of the Development Act 1993, Council has prepared a Development Plan Amendment Report (DPA) to amend its Development Plan.

The Amendment proposes to change the Development Plan by introducing: a Table of Local Heritage Places with a description of the elements of heritage value of each place, figures showing the location of proposed places, and update provisions applying to the assessment of development affecting local heritage places.  The area surveyed is the southern half of the Council area including the towns of Mannum, Cambrai, Keyneton, Palmer, Tungkillo and surrounds.  The survey area is south of the Angaston-Swan Reach Road (Stott Highway), but excluding Sedan and Swan Reach townships.

A copy of the public notice is available here.

The DPA report including a map of the survey area and places identified are available here.

Information sheets have also been prepared to assist members of the community and are available below:
