Ways to lodge

In this guide

After you have prepared your application, you need to lodge it with the relevant authority to begin the assessment process.

There are different ways you can lodge your application, online and offline.

Use PlanSA's lodgement wizard to find out where to lodge your application.

Lodgement methods

From 19 March 2021 all applications are lodged under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016.

Lodge online

Applications can now be lodged online through PlanSA's lodgement form.

You’ll need to register for an account before you can lodge an application online.
