Jetties Strategic Plan

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, on behalf of the Government of South Australia, is developing a state-wide Jetties Strategic Plan, to explore options to develop a sustainable approach to the future management and prioritisation of investment for South Australian jetties.

 The Strategic Plan will broadly review existing jetty infrastructure region by region, and develop a holistic long-term approach to managing our jetties that will:

  • Assess the economic and community outcomes, benefits and usage of jetties;
  • Deliver sustainable options for ongoing jetty safety, management and maintenance;
  • Guide future infrastructure investment decisions; and
  • Channel funds to priority areas to maximise benefits to the community and business.

 Jetties have supported commercial and recreational activities in South Australia since the 1850s and continue to be of social, economic and historical significance to local communities today.

 The effective and efficient management of the State’s jetties and wharves is also an increasing challenge for both State and Local Government to sustain.

 The Strategic Plan will therefore aim to balance the value jetties provide alongside future management challenges.

 The first stage of this review is capturing community, local government and stakeholder views.

 To help inform the development of the Strategic Plan we want to gain a broad understanding of how jetties:

  • Contribute to the economy;
  • Benefit the community; and
  • Are used by local communities, visitors and businesses.


In order to capture these views, we have set up a page on the YourSAy website at, including an online survey which will be open from Monday 30 September 2019 until 5.00pm Friday 1 November 2019.

 We have also set up a SA Jetties Strategic Plan Information Line on 1800 318 070 and email address to facilitate project enquiries.

 Project promotion

In order to further promote the opportunity to provide input via our online survey, we would greatly appreciate your assistance in distributing the attached Fact Sheet to ensure local communities within your council area are aware of their opportunity to provide feedback on the Jetties Strategic Plan, for example at community facilities, notice boards and libraries or by forwarding to your networks.

 Next Steps

DPTI have appointed Aurecon to support the engagement exercise. As previously advised, we will be holding workshops with Local Government in each region of the State from mid-October and a member of the Aurecon team will be back in contact with you shortly with further details.

Following the survey and the workshops, we will be preparing a Background Paper that will inform the development of the Strategic Plan.  You will have an opportunity to comment on the draft Strategic Plan in early 2020.

We thank you for your assistance in helping us capture the views of the local community and stakeholders.  Should you have any queries about the Jetties Strategic Plan please contact us via phone 1800 318 070 or email
