Given the inability of council to decide on how to build a bike lane I'll be very surprised if this process goes smoothly.
Are there numerous councillors with an ideological vendetta against developing the LeCornu site? as there are against protected bike lanes.
No it's more of a concern about their ability to arrive at a consensus view. Recent examples demonstrate that even when resolutions do get passed aggrieved councillors opposing the decisions then go to work fear mongering within the community to ensure the process is drawn out or that the scope of consultation is limited such that only a very narrow perspective gets captured.

As a decision making body they are completely dysfunctional - it's little wonder the administration tries to avoid them as much as possible lol.

More so vested power and influence of North Adelaide residents.
It should be heritage listed and remain vacant!Image

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.

I see a bland development here, apartments 4 to 6 stories, open space, townhouses facing Centenary Street, some ground level retail, an Aldi would work well here, basement parking covering the entire site.

Maybe the council can onsell the land to a developer to build something nice..

Just like they did with U2 on Waymouth.

Well said mshagg. Scary thought having Moran & Co in charge of this.

And if the reports/studies deliver an outcome at odds to what the all-powerful all-seeing all-knowing councillors ‘know’ to be true, then simply continue to commission reports/studies until they get the one that they want. Should kill a few decades of time with what I call the Frome Street bikeway strategy. ImageImageImage

Overheard comment today.
The government shouldn't be in the business of building stuff like this. They should leave it up to the private sector.

The new bikeway under construction in Frome Rd is looking great. I think the council have finally got it right with footpath bikeway and a lane of parking/traffic flexibility. This could spread quickly now a good solution has been demonstrated.

Clearly, there has been a market failure with the le Cornu site development. The government has a role in such situations to protect the wider community and economy. The Council will be accountable to voters in the end and has to make something happen. This is a change in the path for this site, things will not be the same now a new owner with community responsibility is in place. It is not the time to look back in anger but to move forward.
