South Australia’s record investment in infrastructure will create thousands of local jobs and see improvements to our state's roads, railways, schools, hospitals, sporting facilities and housing projects.
To enable the construction of these projects, the Government of South Australia will need land on which to build and, on occasion, this may include property which is owned by a private individual or business.
When land needs to be acquired by the Government for a project, it’s referred to as a Property Acquisition.
The purpose of this webpage is to provide a general overview of the property acquisition process. It is designed to help you understand what to expect during the process. It is not intended to replace legal or expert advice. If you are affected by an acquisition, you will be assigned a Case Manager who will be on hand to answer any specific questions or refer you to the relevant specialist.
