State strategy

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 for South Australia

Renewal SA delivers a range of outcomes from the Planning Strategy for South Australia, which set out the long-term vision for land use and development in South Australia.

These strategies help plan where people will live, work and play in our city, towns, rural and outback locations. The also ensure living in these locations is supported by infrastructure and community services.

Renewal SA is guided by The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, which describes a bold vision for a more liveable, competitive and sustainable metropolitan area.

Planning reform

South Australia is currently undergoing the biggest modernisation of its planning system.

In 2020, South Australia will have a new planning system supported by a clearer and more collaborative vision and priorities for our whole state.

The new planning system will provide a renewed focus on:

  • containing urban sprawl and protecting our invaluable food-bowl, environment and unique landscapes
  • design quality
  • community engagement
  • access to better planning information
  • certainty and transparency in the assessment of development proposals
  • more consistent planning rules that are also easier to understand.

In 2020, South Australia will have a new planning system supported by a clearer and more collaborative vision and priorities for our whole state.

Growth State

Growth State is the Government of South Australia’s strategy to stimulate the economy and population of the state through policies, programs and projects that enable the nine identified key sectors to drive growth in the areas of trade and investment, skills and innovation, infrastructure, and land, water and environment.

Renewal SA is contributing to growing South Australia through its pipeline of infrastructure projects to create places where people want to live, work, invest and spend time. Renewal SA is supporting innovation in the key sectors through the redevelopment of Tonsley and Lot Fourteen, encouraging investment from abroad and locally in industries such as defence, space and the energy and hi-tech sectors. The agency also generates training and employment opportunities through its contracts to support jobs and traineeships.
