CustodianData Authority: Attorney General's Department
Data Provider: Department for Infrastructure and Transport


DescriptionPlanning and Design Code (P&D Code) Zones is the primary layer in the P&D Code under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (PDI Act 2016). P&D Code Zones represent the spatial boundaries that provide guidance for development on 'what' can happen in an area. For areas of the state not currently covered by P&D Code Zones refer to the Land Development Zones.
UsageP&D Code Zones are used to determine the policies that apply to a development at a given location.

Data Quality

LineageP&D Code Zones were initially derived from the zoning spatial data layer under the Development Plans that transitioned INTO the P&D Code under the PDI Act 2016. P&D Code Zones are primarily defined by cadastre and coastline mean high water (2016). P&D Code Zones may also be defined by roads, watercourses and other relevant spatial data layers.
CompletenessComplete for Phase 1 area of the Planning and Design Code of South Australia, including coastal waters.
Positional AccuracyThis data set has been primarily derived from the parcel cadastre and coastline mean high water (2016) layers. The positional accuracy is variable. Refer to coastline parcel cadastre and coastline mean high water (2016) LMS records for positional accuracy.
