Single point of contact

Facilitating developments within the city and North Adelaide over $5 million

Coordinating large projects is a complex process however the City of Adelaide wants to assist developers as best as we can.

Single Point of Contact Program (SPOC)

The City of Adelaide recognises this and has introduced the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) Program offered by the Planning and Development team. The SPOC will contact you once you have lodged your Development Application.

The program ensures that the Developer or Project Manager of a development is in contact with one central facilitator, or SPOC, from Council.

The SPOC will assist you in coordinating permit applications all services and permits required from Council – from traffic management approvals, temporary parking controls and public realm occupation, to tree, street furniture and light pole removals. As a result, you’ll save time and money, as well as giving you an ability to accurately budget for upcoming costs.

A note about City Works and other key authorisations

If you are undertaking commercial maintenance or construction works in the public realm you need to apply a City Works Permit prior to commencing the work. You may also need to apply for Local Nuisance exemptions and Temporary Parking Control alterations, depending on your planned activity.

Special conditions apply, including notifying adjoining owners and occupiers as well as other local stakeholders, consultation and public consultation prior to commencement of work.

You'll find more information about this, and anticipated turn-around times on our City Works page.
