Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

I really think it's time to move on from this shed. So Starfish said in their original submission they wanted to keep the shed "if possible" . How is this even relevant, when the current developer also wanted to keep the shed " if possible" then guess what.. it's riddled with asbestos etc etc. time...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Fencing is up and the developer has stated an intention to demolish Shed 26 this coming week. Meanwhile a very wide cross section of the community is appealing for a reprieve. https://indaily.com.au/news/2019/05/03/shed-26-supporters-rally-for-last-ditch-rescue-effort/ https://indaily.com.au/opinion...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelai

lol, derelict tin sheds full of asbestos now count as heritage. This whole argument revolves around keeping something old around for the sake of keeping it around because we've lost actual old buildings or structures that were worthy of being kept because of their architectural merit, and since thi...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

This whole thing reminds me of an argument happening in many households: And old piece of clothing sits in the wardrobe doing nothing for "x" amount of years because the owner either refuses to throw out or believes that it will come back into fashion. The partner is cleaning out the wardrobe, come...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The branded fenced off sections around Fletcher’s Slip are almost all pre-sold according to the developer. And pre-sold with Shed 26 in situ and no concept plans announced for its replacement. The argument put by the Minister that the whole development is jeopardised by the adaptive redevelopment of...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Im not sure a sawtooth shed is in the same league as your suggestions, but ok, whatever floats your boat. Keep the shed or demolish it. I dont care. For me, it has no significant impact on the Port other than potentially blocking development of a site that has looked like the same desolate wastelan...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

A shed that no one saw value in for thirty years finally making way for progress. Hooray! Yeh hooray! Come on down to the Port folks and dance in the wreckage! If no-one saw value in it why wasn’t it bulldozed years ago with the rest of the Port waterfront? It was always meant to be retained for re...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

On Wednesday the Minister for Environment and Water, David Speirs, directed the Heritage Council to remove Shed 26 from the Heritage Register, clearing the way for its demolition, claiming that its listing and adaptive re-use would be “contrary to the public interest”. He asserts that listing on the...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Screw the derelict shed. Knock it down. Where were these people trying to "save it" all these years? Same with a lot of these types of things that pop up, they only seem to get attention from people who want to "save" them when there's plans to demolish and replace them. Till that happens they seem...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Last Friday the Heritage Council considered all submissions and recommended the permanent heritage listing of Shed 26, which would save it from demolition. The Minister responsible then required the Heritage Council to defer its listing while he considers matters of “public interest” outside of the ...

Re: 2019 Footy Express

Isn’t there a surcharge for the Footy Express built into all Power @ Crows ticketed members’ fees, most of which were paid up in 2018?

Pretty hard to claw that back if they cancelled the Express.

See if they try it on next year.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I asked the PTPA a few weeks back if they’d provide an update on how the ‘design stage’ was progressing but no response and no update on their site. Considering the local interest in this project it’s pretty discourteous and very unlikely to be completed by Q1 2019. (March 31) when there is no sign ...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I don't really understand what isn't clear here? SMA wanted to build a hotel on site, the State Government agreed and gave them funding, that is completely crystal clear. the whole secrative part is a bit laughable though, why would the SMA tell people what it wants to do before it has things appro...
