The Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 enables our new planning system to place greater emphasis on high-quality design. One of the ways it will do this is by creating more opportunities to participate in Design Review under a new Local Design Review Scheme.
The Office for Design and Architecture South Australia (ODASA) has prepared the draft Local Design Review Scheme on behalf of the Minister for Planning in collaboration with the State Planning Commission, local government staff from across the State and peak industry bodies who might provide Local Design Review.
State Design Review
State Design Review has operated successfully in South Australia since 2011 and is currently available to certain larger-scale development proposals assessed by the State Commission Assessment Panel (the SCAP) and referred to the South Australian Government Architect.
State Design Review will continue to be available in the new planning system for the same larger-scale development proposals.
For more information about State Design Review, please visit the ODASA website.
