Amalgamation

Amalgamation is the combining of one or more allotments to create one single parcel of land

A plan for an amalgamation of land must be lodged with Land Services SA and will only be considered if:

  • the allotments are next to each other and are not physically separated ie adjoining land
  • land ownership and any registered estates or interests is the same for all allotments
  • the result is one allotment.

You should seek professional assistance from a survey or drafting services firm. It is important to note that once amalgamation is pursued if you wish to divide the land in the future, you will be required to carry out the land division process.

Development approval is not required when amalgamating allotments unless it is a state heritage place.
