The Natural Resources and Environment Policy Discussion Paper outlines the key issues our state is facing in managing resources like land and water as well as planning for climate change. It looks at how critical environmental issues will affect or be affected by planning policy in the state’s new planning system.

Background


Now closed


South Australia is undergoing the biggest modernisation of its planning system in 20 years. New legislation is being introduced in stages to provide a more efficient, responsive and effective planning system for all South Australians.

The Planning and Design Code is a key reform element in our new planning system. This paper discusses the ways in which the Code can respond to contemporary land use policy challenges and opportunities associated with our natural resources and environment.

The Natural Resources and Environment Discussion Paper is one of four policy discussion papers that will help inform the development of South Australia’s new planning system with regard to our unique environments, ecosystems and resources. It focuses on the fundamental benefits that our natural resources and environment provide to our health and economy, and identifies six key policy themes:

  • Sustainable and Liveable Urban Environments
  • Water Security and Quality
  • Biodiversity
  • Coastal environments
  • Natural Hazards
  • Environment Protection and Public Health

Your views on these key themes and the recommendations contained in the discussion paper will contribute to planning policies that protect our environment for the future and a successful new planning system for South Australia.

Watch the video in the South Australia's New Planning System tab to find out more about the core elements of the planning system.
