Recently there have been some significant changes to land use planning policy in South Australia and these changes have and will prompt some complementary legislative changes to the State’s planning legislation. This seminar will look at some of the changes which may be of interest to legal practitioners.It will include discussion on the new planning policies within the City of Adelaide, (designed, in part ,to facilitate greater development opportunities), the relaxation of controls over suburban trees and observations on possible future legislative changes in order to implement the 30 Year Planning Strategy for Greater Adelaide.
