Mallala Development Plan
Council’s Development Plan sets out planning policies for the control of development within the Council district. Development applications are assessed against the relevant policies contained within the Development Plan.
Amendments to the Development Plan
The Development Plan requires regular updating to ensure it reflects the needs of the community, the economy and the environment. Development Plans are updated through a formal statutory Development Plan Amendment (DPA) process, specified in the Development Act 1993. DPAs can either be undertaken by Council or by the state government (through the Minister for Planning).
For more information on DPAs, refer to the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure www.sa.gov.au
