Shacks on Crown Land and in national parks
The South Australian Government is committed to creating new opportunities for families to retain shacks on Crown land and in national parks by expanding the eligibility to maintain a lease in return for upgrading the shack to meet contemporary safety, amenity and environmental standards.
Applying for longer tenure
Applications for longer tenure for shacks on Crown land and in national parks have now closed. DEW is working through the assessment process for each submitted application.
