What is everyone's opinion on who should be voted for at the council election?

Depends on the area... Some heritage zones should have a height cap so they retain their heritage character. The debate should be able which areas they should be.

How about a dynamic height requirement - no more than 20% taller or shorter than your immediate neighbours? That would allow growth while keeping consistency within an area and produce a gradation from the low-rise areas to the high-rise areas of the city.

That would just encourage developers to sit on property and wait until someone else builds first

Big infrastructure investments are usually under-valued and & over-criticized while in the planning stage. It's much easier to envision the here and now costs and inconveniences, and far more difficult to imagine fully the eventual benefits.

With Antic and Wilkinson gone, hopefully two big barriers to progress have now been removed...

wonderful news! I particularly disliked Antic for his strange anti-bicycle obsession. We might actually get an E/W bike way now? (IIRC that the State was keen to pay for.)

Knoll seems fairly progressive compared to Wilkinson: https://franzknoll.com.au/policies/all-policies

Compare that to the nightmare of Mark Hamilton’s ‘cars first’ manifesto from a couple of years back and it’s poles apart!
Very happy to see Franz Knoll get elected if that is an accurate snapshot of his plans for Adelaide.
