This revised Planning Strategy was prepared in 2002 and came into effect in 2003. It was superseded in 2006.

The Planning Strategy presents State Government policy for development. In particular, it seeks to guide and coordinate State Government activity in construction and the provision of services and infrastructure, which influence the development of South Australia. It also indicates directions for future development to the community, the private sector and local government.

This edition of the strategy has primarily addressed changes in the following areas:

• urban growth boundary – urban containment

• industrial land strategy and use of surplus land at DSTO

• urban regeneration

• centres policy, airport uses (including bulky goods retail)

• integration of transport and land use.

The Strategy is presented in two documents that cover the whole state:

1. Planning Strategy for Metropolitan Adelaide The Metropolitan Adelaide volume consists of two parts. • Planning, Developing and Regenerating Adelaide sets out the overall intent and major choices on which the Strategy is based. • Areas of Adelaide outlines the different effects the proposals contained in the Strategy will have in the three main sectors of metropolitan Adelaide introduced by a section on urban form.

2. Planning Strategy for Regional South Australia The Regional volume relates to land not covered by the Metropolitan volume, including those parts of Adelaide covered by the Mount Lofty Ranges Regional Strategy Plan and the Barossa Regional Strategy Plan. This section of the Strategy is based on the economic, social and environmental priorities for regional South Australia.
