Making an Application

From 31 July 2020, Development Applications can be lodged and processed online through the ePlanning Portal. Applicants can create their own account by registering at https://plan.sa.gov.au/.

Development Applications can be lodged and processed online through the ePlanning Portal.

Applicants will also be able to track and monitor the progress of their application, pay fees and receive information requests through the ePlanning Portal from the accredited planning and building professionals assessing their application.

The ePlanning portal will be South Australia’s planning hub for planning information, mapping, fact sheets and enquiry tools to assist with development proposals.
