The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide outlines how Adelaide should grow to become more liveable, competitive and sustainable. It will guide the long-term growth of our city and its surrounds until 2040.
The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide (first prepared in 2010) outlines how Adelaide should grow to become more liveable, competitive and sustainable. The policies and strategies included in the 2010 Plan have resulted in a number of actions – both ‘on the ground’ and within planning reform.
The Update (released in 2017) builds on the strong foundations of the Plan and updates its vision—where needed—to ensure the development of Greater Adelaide continues to respond to emerging challenges and opportunities.
The State Planning Commission monitors the implementation of the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide (the Plan) and provide updates on the progress of actions and targets.
The scope of the Report Card is to measure progress against six high level strategic targets (PDF, 206 KB) that reinforce the State’s commitment to deliver a more compact urban form, and to manage growth within the existing urban footprint by monitoring how our city grows.
The six targets are a key tool in determining whether the policies and actions outlined in the Plan have been effective in delivering the new urban form.
Each target has been reviewed and measured, where possible, using the latest data available to provide an update on progress made. Measurement against the baseline values provided in the Plan determines how effectively the targets are tracking.
A review of all the high level strategic targets will take place as part of the 30-Year Plan update commencing in 2022.
