Roxby Council is required to assess all forms of development against the Roxby Downs (Municipality) Development Plan, as well as the Building Code of Australia under the Development Act 1993 and associated Regulations. The Roxby Downs (Municipailty) Development Plan is available online at

This is carried out under long standing arrangements with both City of Salisbury (building assessment) and a planning consultant (planning assessment).

Regulations establish procedures which Council must follow in its assessment of applications including what level of public notification is required, and where applications must be referred to external authorities, such as the Environment Protection Authority and the Development Assessment Commission for concurrence. Fees are set out via the Development Regulations 2008. These fees are standard across the State.

In relation to some decisions under the Development Act 1993, this Council, like a number of smaller Councils, have obtained an exemption from the Minister for Planning and Local Government to formally have a Development Assessment Panel.

All of Roxby Council's decisions under the Development Act 1993 as a Relevant Authority are made by the Administrator following independent advice from Council's Planning Officer.

For information regarding Building and Development applications please go to our Building and Planning page.
