South Australia's new planning system for large regional towns and metropolitan areas is now operational, allowing development applications to be submitted and tracked online via Australia's first state wide ePlanning platform.

The ePlanning platform brings together the PlanSA portal, the online Planning and Design Code, the South Australian Property and Planning Atlas and the electronic Development Application Processing system.

The New planning system delivers clear and consistent planning policies across the entire state of South Australia that are easily accessible and widely available.

South Australia’s new planning system will help you to:

  • Search zoning for your property
  • Review development rules
  • Lodge and track an application online
  • Track major projects and development activity
  • Find an accredited professional.

The PlanSA website provides the entry point to the ePlanning system for South Australia.  Through PlanSA, you can:


All applicants are encouraged to lodge development applications through the state wide Development Assessment Portal.

Lodge your development applications online at anytime

If you are still wanting to lodge your development application by email, post or in person, an additional $80 processing fee will be charged for submitting the development application into the planning system on your behalf.

If you are  submitting by email, post or in person, you will also need to download and print the statutory forms from PlanSA and complete them as an attachment to your application.

A level of additional documentation is required to be provided with your application including a site plan, floor plan, elevations and other drawings.

The link below provides a number of application checklists to assist with preparing your application.

Application Fee Payment

The link below allows you to make payment of application fees without logging into the PlanSA Development Assessment Portal.
