Because it is a form of deceit, it is dishonest?
If they aren't serious about their proposals, why should they be considered at all let alone approved?
If not fine them, impose a bond system.
Do you think these proposals for 100m this 100m that, that don't get off the ground because the developer never had the intention to actually go ahead with it but only wanted to maximize the value of the existing property to make a profit, have a negative or positive effect on Adelaide, on the market, on the populaces psyche, on the image of Adelaide?
The handful of 100m+ proposals we've had over recent times, which never got off the ground, do you think they reinforce the stereotype that nothing happens/changes in Adelaide?
Do you think these failed developments instil confidence and pride in Adelaide?
Wouldn't the increased cost of the property/land limit the potential for another proposal to get off the ground on that site?
