DescriptionThe Planning 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). The 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.
UsageThe P&D Code Zones are used to determine the policies that apply to a development at a given location. A Zone policy will prevail over a General Development Policy.

Data Quality

LineageP&D Code Zones were initially derived from the zoning spatial data layer under the Development Act 1993 (Dev Act 1993) that transitioned into the P&D Code under the PDI Act 2016. P&D Code Zones are primarily defined by cadastre, coastline, roads, watercourses and other relevant spatial data layers.
CompletenessComplete for South Australia, including coastal waters.
Positional AccuracyThis data set has been derived from zoning spatial data layer under the Dev Act 1993 that has been aligned to a combination of cadastre, coastline, roads, railways, watercourses, water bodies, pastoral paddocks and petroleum pipeline licences immediately prior the commencement of Planning and Design Code Zones under the PDI Act 2016 is reliant on accuracy of these spatial data layers. Refer to LMS records for layers mentioned for positional accuracy.
