They are doing what local governments do, looking out for their existing residents. They are probably envisioning a pyramid approach, where the Flinders building is the top of the pyramid and the height steps down from there. You might think it's petty, but this is what local residents are talking about, so the local government should bring it to attention.

Meanwhile, in this very area- local parks are dead/dying/ not maintained. Grafiti, illegal dumping and petty crime rampant, verges are a mess and the roads are falling apart. But sure, lets focus on a 2 storey height difference in a former industrial site.

The shadows aren't gonna go anywhere near their backyards. What's the fuss?

If the local residents have concerns about the development, it is (and it should continue to be) their right to voice their opinion about a development. If they believe that local government is the best way of carrying those concerns, then that is perfectly OK. I don't believe the Marion DAP has the final say anyway.

I have not seen the exact plans for the site and where the housing, apartments and so on will be, so I can't make a personal judgement if this development is good or not. But if we remove the rights for local people to voice their opinion about local development, however silly it may be, then this is not a democracy and we may as well not have a development assessment panel.

In addition, shadowing is not the only concern that could be a factor. I know people that live on Churchill Road that live in detached, single story dwellings, and they have concerns about overlooking into their backyards. Now, I believe that this area has been moving to higher density and higher buildings for some time, and I see the benefits in that. But just because this is my opinion does not mean I have the right to stop them from going to the media or a local council and expressing their concerns. This is where the panel (SCAP, local DAP, whatever) comes in and makes the final, professional decision, based on the developer's submission and residents' submissions.

Planning is political, this is a fact. And ultimately politics is (or maybe "should be" in the current climate) the art of negotiating and coming to an agreement.

South Australians need to learn to move with the times and accept change and progress, if this state is to enter a phase of serious growth and expansion.

The residential component for this is called Tonsley Village.

The website is now up:
https://www.peet.com.au/communities/ade ... sa/tonsley

A lot of the main roads around the area have now been completed, I'll post a video up in the next few days.

Here is the master plan for the site

Artists impressions of Peet’s Tonsley 850-home development revealed

CONSTRUCTION work starts this week on the first apartment building in Tonsley’s 850-home development, marking a significant milestone in the suburb’s transformation.

Brendan Gore, chief executive of Peet, which is leading the development, said the 30 homes in the seven-year project’s first stage were almost sold out.

They were attracting a mix of buyers, including young professionals and couples.

He saw some “unique” qualities in the location and its surroundings.

“You have the business precinct, the university and Tafe, and now a residential development — all in one precinct,” Mr Gore said.

“It’s a good road map for these type of developments across the city.”

Peet, which is also behind the Lightsview development, has approval to construct 850 homes on the former Mitsubishi site in buildings four storeys high.

However, Mr Gore said — depending on demand — the developers would consider seeking additional approval to extend the project to 1000 homes in buildings up to seven storeys.

“That’s something we’ll take a cautious approach to,” he said.

“We want to ensure that it’s a successful development that people want to live in and it delivers value to our buyers long term.”

Roadworks began last month, with terrace homes set to be started in June.

The first residents are expected in the middle of next year.

The $265 million development comprises 11ha of the Tonsley redevelopment site and will feature 1.5ha of open space.

Residents would be close to the cafes, restaurants and events centred on Tonsley’s Main Assembly Building, Mr Gore said.

He described it as “quite an interesting concept — and quite hip”.

Good to see some grass and trees. Hopefully there is also a few cafes restaurants and retail. Pity the majority of the site not like this. The Tafe should have been multi storey too.

Couple of little cafes in the Flinders hub area so far. Apparently there's a hope to turn the old boiler shed at the Eastern end of Alawoona avenue into a cafe / micro-brewry thing as well which would be great. There's also a supermarkert in the long term plan, but depends if someone wants to open one there I guess. Would be a great spot for a Woolies as there's none of those particularly close to Tonsely - Marion has one, but not a great spot to do the weekly shop!

Couple of updates:
- Call has been made for expression of interest for someone to develop the site they hope to place a supermarket and shops on:

- Lady Burra (Topham Mall) will open a brew house at the old Tonsley boiler house which will be a key player for the area:
