LGA Planning Reform Campaign

Planning Reform in South Australia

Mid Murray Council recently forwarded a submission to the State Government on the Planning, Development & Infrastructure Bill 2015.  Council is supportive of moves to reform the planning system in South Australia and believes that several aspects of the Bill will assist in improving the system.  However Council remains concerned that other aspects of the Bill will result in greater costs for Council and the community, a higher level of complexity in the system and reduce the amount of say that the community and Council have in shaping the built environment.

Council encourages all interested persons to review Council’s submission and the documentation available on the Bill at http://dpti.sa.gov.au/planning/planning_reform

Additional information can also be found on the Local Government Association website at http://www.lga.sa.gov.au

Any queries can be directed to Council’s Planning Department on 8564 6020 or postbox@mid-murray.sa.gov.au.
