It commences with an examination of the historical evolution of the SA planning system and then considers the nature of the planning procedures under Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 and the controls imposed under that Act. The role and responsibilities of planning authorities and the Courts in the planning system and the purpose and influence of case law will also be considered together with the nature of public involvement within the planning system. The course will also consider the role the statutory planning controls play in the control of government development, major projects and infrastructure proposals heritage and sustainability and the integration of the development assessment system through the statutory referral process with other statutory assessment and approval processes such as the Environment Protection Act, 1993 will be examined.
