Economic Statement & Action Plan

This Economic Statement and Action Plan presents Wakefield Regional Council’s plan of action to help build the prosperity and sustainability of the Council region.

The Plan seeks to establish partnerships with all levels of government and the private sector as well as foster regional collaboration.

It is focussed on supporting existing attributes of the Council area to develop a competitive advantage and foster growth so that businesses are retained in the area and opportunities for new businesses are created. In this way the existing and future population of the Council area is supported and future opportunities are created.

Development Plan

Development Plans are the key on-the-ground development assessment documents in South Australia. They contain the rules that set out what can be done on any piece of land across the state, and the detailed criteria against which development applications will be assessed. Development Plans cover distinct and separate geographic areas of the state. There is a separate Development Plan for each one of the 68 local council areas, plus a handful of other Development Plans covering areas not situated within local government boundaries. Development Plans outline what sort of developments and land use are and are not envisaged for particular zones (eg residential, commercial, industrial), and various objectives, principles and policies further controlling and affecting the design and other aspects of proposed developments.
