Time to Act – EFPA Review

If you own land in the Environment and Food Production Area (EFPA), you now have an opportunity to have this designation reviewed.  And URPS can help.

The State Planning Commission is undertaking the first review into the EFPA since its establishment in 2017.  The EFPA generally affects the area on the outskirts of Adelaide.

The Commission’s review will initially focus on the suitability and adequate supply of land to support urban renewal and consolidation within Greater Adelaide, followed by a review of the EFPA boundaries.

There is opportunity for landowners, the community and local governments to lodge submissions with the Commission in mid-2021. 

Additional information including the Commission’s “Practice Direction” about the EPPAs can be found at

If you would like to make a submission on the EFPA please contact us on 8333 7999 to discuss how we can help.
