Discussion paper

This discussion paper looks at the key opportunities and challenges facing South Australia’s housing sector caused by changes in South Australia’s population. It looks at the trends and changes occurring in our suburbs, providing a snapshot in time of where we are now and an indication of what the future will look like.

The paper outlines some of the key considerations which form people’s decision on housing choice, including: proximity to work, family and services housing affordability and living costs recognition of heritage and character rising impacts of climate change. The State Planning Commission has identified areas of residential planning that require improvement and is proposing a range of new planning polices to enhance neighbourhood liveability, raise the quality of urban infill and stem the loss of tree canopy in the new Planning and Design Code.
