Development applications on public notification

Public notification is undertaken in accordance with the Development Act 1993 and allows those that may be affected to view and comment on a development application. It allows those notified to examine the proposed development, consider the likely impacts the proposal may have on them, and provide comment (either positive or negative) prior to a decision being made.

Category 2 Development 

A letter advising of the proposed development is sent to all owners/occupiers of adjacent land (this is defined in the Development Act as land which is directly separated by a road, or river, etc, and provided it is no more than 60 metres from the subject site of the development). 

Category 3 Development 

A letter advising of the proposed development is sent to all owners/occupiers of adjacent land. A letter is also sent to owner/occupiers of any land considered to be affected to a significant degree by the development if it were to proceed, and a public notice is placed in the newspaper. 

The Adelaide (City) Development Plan lists the types of development for each category of public notification.
