Yesterday the Deputy Premier, the Hon. Vickie Chapman MP, announced the delay to Phase Three of the Planning & Design Code. The media release from the new Minister for Planning advises the revised timing of the implementation of the Code to large regional towns and metropolitan areas.
The Deputy Premier said;
“At this stage of the process, it would be irresponsible for us to proceed and ignore the insight and feedback that we have received from councils and the broader community.”
“An original launch date for this final phase was anticipated to occur in September 2020; however, this was always dependent on a number of factors including the scale and complexity of submissions received during our consultation stage.”
“The final phase of PlanSA will not be introduced prior to Christmas 2020. I intend to announce a more definite date once I am fully briefed on the whole of the program.”
