Shaping the future of Greater Adelaide

Published on 16 August 2023


South Australians can have their say on how their State grows during the next 30 years as consultation on urban, land, and housing development through to the 2050s has now started.

The State Planning Commission has released the 'Greater Adelaide Regional Plan Discussion Paper', which provides an opportunity for the community to discuss the long-term planning vision and needs of Greater Adelaide.

Defined as the 11,000km2 stretching from Cape Jervis to Murray Bridge and encompassing the townships of the Barossa and the boundary of Port Wakefield, approximately 85 per cent of the State’s population resides in the Greater Adelaide Region.

The Discussion Paper poses important questions for South Australians to consider and debate such as:

  • where new housing and employment lands should be developed
  • how these homes should be serviced
  • how the State preserves its environmental assets
  • what major infrastructure will be required for future generations
  • how the State tackles the inevitable challenges of climate change, public space, and amenity whilst balancing pressures including affordability as the population grows.

To be involved, visit the Plan SA website. Consultation is open until 5pm, 6 November 2023.
