Major projects

A development proposal can be declared as a major project by the Minister for Planning if it is considered to be of economic, social or environmental importance to South Australia.

The way that major projects are assessed is a state-run process that differs from other development applications.

The major assessment process

A declaration is the start of a thorough assessment process which provides opportunity for public comment before any decision is made.

A declaration does not imply government support or otherwise for the proposal.

Have your say

All major projects are required to have a public notification period during assessment, before a decision is made.

The general public are notified about the development by newspaper advertisement and also by publishing information on PlanSA.

Any interested person can have a say on the development within the prescribed period.
