Summary of Development Services’ Permit Activity:

Development Services provides regular reports on utility releases, residential or commercial plans that have been submitted, building and residential permits issued, and new businesses that opened. Such reports are designed to keep the community informed about building developments that could impact their area, as well as document the progress of projects throughout the City. These reports are issued weekly, monthly, for the calendar year and based on fiscal year.

Note: As of April 1, 2021, Open Data Reports provides BuildSA and Hansen building permit information including individual reports by council districts, neighborhood conservation districts, and historic districts. 

If needed, you can still search for permit applications and permits issued using this link. We made a video tutorial to help you navigate through the data using the BuildSA system. Thank you for your patience and continued support.
