The Planning and Design Code Amendment Toolkit (the toolkit) provides practitioners with step-by-step guidance, together with templates and online forms to request an amendment to the Code, and where relevant to undertake the process for an amendment to the Code.

It should be used alongside the Community Engagement Charter toolkit, which provides the statutory obligations for engagement on Code Amendments.

This is the first release of the toolkit. It provides basic information to assist practitioners and proponents with the early stages of the Code Amendment process. The toolkit will be further updated and refined as required.

Proposals for Code Amendments can be lodged through the PlanSA website for approval to initiate from the Minister for Planning and Local Government.
