The Council undertakes a range of strategic planning activities and projects. These activities are guided by two key state level strategic documents - South Australia’s Strategic Plan and 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide and one regional strategic document - the Inner Metro Rim Structure Plan.

These documents provide the strategic context for the future development of South Australia and contain development objectives, policies and targets for both metropolitan Adelaide and regional South Australia. For more information:
