The South Australian Government has commenced a process to update the Strategic Infrastructure Plan for South Australia 2004/5-2014/15 to map out infrastructure priorities for the next 10 to 15 years.
South Australia's first infrastructure plan, released in 2005, has guided significant progress in infrastructure development with more than 80 per cent of the priority projects listed in that plan completed or underway.
Following the release of the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, and progress in updating regional volumes of the South Australian Planning Strategy, an update of the states infrastructure plan is needed to provide state-wide direction on priorities for investment or policy effort by governments and to integrate infrastructure planning and delivery by the three spheres of government and the private sector with land use planning.
A discussion paper has been prepared to provide an overview of progress in infrastructure development and the key challenges and opportunities to be considered in future planning for 15 infrastructure sectors.
It also identifies the long term strategic directions or priorities to guide decisions on infrastructure planning and development over the next 10 to 15 years and beyond.
The discussion paper provides a basis for discussions between infrastructure users and providers, business, community groups and local councils to contribute to the development of the new plan.
Public consultation has now closed. Thank you for your input.
All submissions and feedback received during the consultation period will be considered during preparation of the new plan, as input from South Australians is important to ensure that the plan reflects the community's views.
