What is a Development Plan?
Across South Australia, each Council is required to maintain a Development Plan - a legally binding document that sets out the guidelines for development in the Council area. The Victor Harbor Development Plan is the primary document that contains the City of Victor Harbor's planning vision and policies.
Development Plans are updated regularly through a Development Plan Amendment (DPA). This enables Council to provide enough land for future use, respond to changing development and population patterns and reflect State Government objectives for future development.
What is a Development Plan Amendments (DPA)?
The only way in which a Development Plan can be updated is by a Development Plan Amendment (DPA). A DPA consists of an explanation of the proposed changes to the existing Development Plan as well as the research that underpins these proposed changes. The process associated with each DPA includes a number of checks and balances, including a public consultation period; an informal information session; an official, formal public hearing; and consultation with other government agencies.
