Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Don’t let Anne Moran get under your skin – she is for the most part irrelevant, not many people take her seriously. Every so often she takes a contrarian view on key issues of the day to make sure her name appears regularly in the media, to ensure her profile is kept up. I wouldn’t worry too much ab...

Re: Superloop 500

And for what’s it worth, I think the State Govt may want to consider changing the focus of any future motorsport event in the parklands once the Supercar hold is over after next year’s event. Consideration should be given to changing to an ‘Adelaide Motorsport Festival’ with the State Govt as the ul...

Re: Superloop 500

The Adelaide 500 motorsport event has just recorded its lowest crowd attendance in 17 years. Apparently, SA Tourism has been tasked with managing a ‘postmortem’ into why this occurred. I believe there is only one more year left to run on the current contract, to host this event. Is this going to be...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Transport Projects

Apparently Infrastructure SA is releasing its 20 Year Strategic Infrastructure plan soon, in March? It will be interesting to see if there is any substance or just more waffle. After all, they been at it for well over a year. As SA is, for the most part absent on the Infrastructure Australia's proje...

[APP] Re: 2-6 Hutt Street | Rymill Place | 54m | 16 Levels | Apartments

Yes - I just doubled checked the current zoning, the 40m-70m height limit does stop west of Hutt St, this site definitely falls into a lower height limit, but clearly the planning authorities have overridden. But you're right, the zoning for this site should have been updated, to be fair.

Wherever you live, you need to be aware of the zoning and allowable building heights for your position. It doesn't matter if you are in the city or suburbs. There are plenty of objections to suburban development too, this is not just a 'city' thing. I am not sure what the zoning was when the objecto...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Maybe the time has come for Adelaide to consider becoming another Brisbane, in the way local government is managed. Brisbane consolidated their 20 or so LGA’s into 1 mega LGA to reduce costs, reduce local infighting and streamline local government decisions for the better good of a wider community. ...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The ACC need to once and for all just declare the current site will be demolished and a new ‘suburban pool’ in the same format as Payneham, Norwood or Burnside as examples, be built in its place to serve ACC ratepayers. The ACC is not there to fund ratepayers from other councils because their own co...

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

The Indian Test Captain has come out and said he will likely support a Day Night Test, and says if it happens, Adelaide would be his preferred location. If this is true, this will be a major win for Adelaide in the upcoming Indian tour 2020/21, as Perth & Brisbane will have to fight out the other sp...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I think the North Course should be closed and the focus should be on ensuring the South Course is maintained with extra focus on being a premium course into the future. If parts of the SE corner of the South Course are required (yet to be determined), for an expanded sports precinct, then ensure the...

Keeping in theme of the general 1920’s style of the Railway Station, looks good.

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Another parklands battle could be brewing in the background. The North Adelaide Golf Course/Club expenses are exceeding its revenue by approx. M$1 annually – the deficit being picked up ACC ratepayers in the same manner as the Aquatic Centre yearly deficit. There was supposed to be a Masterplan that...
