Planning Zones in Kent Town is very important because it explains the existing Planning zones and rules. It explains the zones and policy areas that are in the NPSP Council Development Plan. They paint a picture of the type of development that exists or is anticipated in the Kent Town area.

Draft Planning & Design Code 2020

This refers to proposed planning and design rules that the State Government wants to introduce; the views of Councils and Resident groups across SA; and the KTRA submission to the proposal.

Elsewhere on the website is a related file called Kent Town Precincts and associated Zones and Policy Areas (to be completed). KTRA has characterised Kent Town into six (6) precincts to enable citizens to address their own smaller residential locations. You can see how the precincts, zones and policy areas overlap and see a link to maps. Their boundaries are largely the same.
