Residential Development Code - Development
In March 2009 South Australia introduced the new Residential Development Code.
The Code aims to make planning and building approvals for some types of home construction and renovation simpler, faster and cheaper.
So if you are looking at renovating your home or wanting to build a new one please look at the links below to see how the new Code makes things simpler, faster and cheaper for you in seeking planning and building approvals.
The SA Department for Planning and Local Government provides further information regarding the Residential Development Code.
