Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Just imagine the boom for cafes along Prospect road after AFL/ cricket fixtures at Adelaide Oval if the tram went along Prospect road. It would spread the activity beyond the immediate vicinity of North Adelaide. Last I heard the North Adelaide traders were flat after the Adelaide Oval redo. Zero l...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Kaufland did not get their Wynn Vale site.
I thought Prospect council rejected their Prospect proposal.

I imagine they are back to the drawing board of what sites they can secure. Opening a single store might not be economical.

Did ALDI have a distribution center before they started opening up shops around SA?
Memory says yes.
Google says Regency Park distribution reached practical completion on 3 Dec 2015 and first stores open 2 Feb 2016.

The kiosks are tiny and support the use of the parklands, only those that want the parks as only grass would be against them. The hospital is to better the people of the state, how is that not good use of parklands? The casino gave the city a 24/7 venue with very effective security control. It is po...

It's not being built on Pennington terrace. It's fronting king William and vehicle access will be from the EXISTING underground car park. The hotel structure isn't going to infringe on the stupid grass outside. What's in the spot the hotel will be going on is freaking concrete. I didn't mean to imp...

:applause: the sooner people realise the parklands in their CURRENT format are holding Adelaide back the better. People do not visit Adelaide to see the parklands, and outside of Adelaide, they are virtually unknown. Holding Adelaide back from what? The Adelaide Oval is what it is mostly due to the...

However, I am certainly more concerned for the Adelaide of now, not the city of 2 - 3 million which might be achieved in another 150 years. This is the problem, entitled people right now that would sell their grandchild's soul if it gave them an extra buck now. If you don't get a fancy park now, fu...

As for the whole "you cant build on the parklands" thing, large swathes of parkland are barren, useless dustpans. I think we should activate sections of parkland by allowing considered private development. Do you mean north of North Adelaide, eg the horse paddocks? I believe these horse paddocks sh...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Virginia Nursery was closed on Boxing Day for the first time in many years. SA owned stores can't afford to trade on these days, this opening on public holidays benefits no one but Coles and Woolworths. FFS, who cares about virginia nursery ? I was just trying to find a Significant SA owned busines...

Somehow deregulated shopping hours, or longer shopping hours, will hurt small business and they are all over it, but not more international chains moving in to town. Unions do not care about small business they represent workers of large companies. Unions care about the loss of social time, work-li...
