Local Design Review Code Amendment finalised
The Local Design Review Code Amendment has been finalised and came into effect on 17 February 2022. This Amendment gives effect to the Local Design Review Scheme for South Australia, which provides a consistent state-wide approach for councils to establish their own Design Review panels for local development proposals.
Public consultation on the Code Amendment was open between 12 August and 27 September 2021. During the 6 week period, 14 submissions were received. As a result, the Amendment was updated to improve early proponent access to Local Design Review, reduce administration by council staff and improve customer service. This demonstrates the Community Engagement Charter in action and how South Australians have helped to influence better outcomes for our state.
The Local Design Review Code Amendment Engagement Report is available and details the engagement process and outcomes, including a summary of the feedback received and how the Amendment was updated.
