The Development Act 1993 requires that no development can be undertaken unless it has the approval of the relevant authority, which in most cases is your local council. This means that any construction, alteration, addition to or demolition of a building or structure, a change in that current use of land or anything that modifies a designated heritage item constitutes development as defined in the Development Act 1993 and therefore requires formal development approval.
In April 2017 the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 came into operation. The Act is being implemented in stages, over a four year period. To keep up to date with the rollout, please visit the SA Planning Portal.
