There are statutory forms that must be used during the assessment process of a development application.

These forms must be used throughout the process, from initial stages of lodgement to final occupation of a building.

If you are proposing an application in a rural or outback part of South Australia, the forms you'll use are determined by the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016.

All current versions of forms under this Act are available for download from PlanSA.
