We develop connected, accessible places that enhance South Australia’s distinctive lifestyle. Through meaningful partnerships with communities, industries and organisations we create energising opportunities and living progress.
In addition, we work within a set of guiding principles centred around creating jobs and opportunities for people to live within ten kilometres of the city with the aim of having more people living, working, visiting and investing in South Australia.
We achieve accelerated urban renewal through our ongoing partnerships with the private sector and not-for-profit housing sector and an unwavering commitment to conversations and engagement with federal and state agencies, local communities, councils and, most importantly, individuals.
By accelerating urban revitalisation we also create real employment opportunities through the Renewal SA Works Program which is targeted at key groups in the community to help them take the next steps through training to employment.
Our communities accept only the highest standards of design and planning which ensures they are inclusive, connected and sustainable.
Renewal SA facilitates access to development opportunities for the private sector that may be available through the better use of government land holdings whether currently surplus or potentially surplus.
In support of other government priorities, Renewal SA plays a leading role in providing opportunities for industrial and commercial development on designated employment lands to support jobs growth and influence productivity and economic development.

The Planning Strategy sets out the long-term vision for land use and development in South Australia. It is a requirement of section 22 of the Development Act 1993 and consists of seven volumes that cover the entire state.
We create detailed precinct plans through consultation with government agencies, local communities, councils and other stakeholders.
Consultation centres on the best delivery of appropriate infrastructure, human services, streetscapes and open spaces. We carry out consultation before development starts, either directly with interest groups and communities or through private sector representatives.
