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

What is being decided?

We are deciding how our new planning policy will better support South Australia’s economy.

We want to hear your views on what you believe are the key issues and opportunities in land-use planning policy, which relate to business and industry. We are developing a statewide planning and design code and considering a range of economic issues that planning can have an influence on.

We want your feedback on the proposed new planning policy that relates to the use of land for business and industry purposes. We would like to know how the Planning and Design Code can better support our State's economy.

The Productive Economy Policy Discussion Paper explores four key themes that we would like you to consider:

  • supporting and growing key industries
  • linking people to jobs, goods and services
  • providing infrastructure to enhance our liveability
  • facilitating innovation and enabling investment.

We have prepared a summary of the discussion paper and a more comprehensive background paper.

You can also read a second detailed background paper, which is a study of land-use planning from an economist’s viewpoint, and forms part of the research for the main paper.
