Re: article: Six weeks from water disaster

People shouldn't need to water their garden from May to October anyway.

We need more water infrastructure especially stormwater harvesting but we also need to change the mindset of gardeners.

I'm not a gardener's arsehole but my garden is thriving and I haven't watered anything since early March.

Re: The Missing Piece/s

Great suggestions alfer7_3 Pirie St through Hindmarsh Sq should be closed to all traffic except commercial vehicles. I think a European style median strip bike lane with trees either side on Franklin/Flinders connecting the West Parklands and East parklands bike paths and connecting to the Balfours/...

[COM] Re: $1.7bn plan to build a new RAH

Surely the train station for the hospital should be located as close as possible to North Tce so that it also services UNISA City West?

The proposed location only makes sense if they have another project planned btwn the hospital and the river.

[COM] Re: Proposal: 20 Hindmarsh Square (15 lvl Hotel, 14 lvl Apartmen

So walls on property boundaries must be fireproof? The type of use and no. of storeys determines the length of time they must be able to resist fire attack. The level of resistance decreases as the wall gets further away from the "fire source feature" until there is no resistance required at, I thi...

Re: $100m DEVELOPMENT - MOUNT GAMBIER

Note this proposal is in DC Grant not MtG. MtG is expanding beyond the City Council limits and into Grant which is predominantly a farming council with no interest in planning regulations. This development should go through without a hitch.

[COM] Re: Proposal: 20 Hindmarsh Square (15 lvl Hotel, 14 lvl Apartmen

The blank walls are just because the buildings are going right to the boundary and therefore need to be fireproof. They are constructed as cheaply as possible with little thought for aesthetics because the developer has no control over development on the adjacent site. Imagine building an apartment ...

The Advertiser appears to be behind this proposal so they probably won't publish letters against it.

The project needed to be broken down into smaller sections with the most commercially viable sections done first. This would have allowed a broader range of developers to be involved and resulted in a more diverse architectural palette. In the absence of unlimited funds many small developments are ...

HGIH the last thing I want is some pseudo heritage residential theme park. My point is the proposed development has been lifted straight out of the the Gold Coast and divided up into sanitised precincts where everything is separated. At the moment it is heading towards another soulless west lakes ju...

The old Clipsal site is actually the current Clipsal site on Park Tce facing the parklands. Clipsal have announced that they are planning to relocate to allow for much greater manufacturing efficiency. I understand they are looking to house everything in the 1 building instead of the 40 something bu...

It seems to be a common misconception that something is only heritage if it is made of stone. It is not a buildings age or materials that determines its value it is the role that it played in the development of a community or architectural style or as the backdrop to historical events. Such sheds ca...

If the hospital is moved, the current site should be used to extend the North Terrace cultural precinct, by building a new world-class museum of modern art, or a national beer centre. Both the Museum and Art Gallery of South Australia have only a tiny proportion of their collections on show. Judici...

If you are going to combine the Queen Liz & RAH then the Clipsal site would have to come into consideration. Extending the tram to service the Entertainment Centre, Hindmarsh Stadium and the hospital would be an easy argument to make. ABC News Online Last Update: Thursday, May 24, 2007. 4:22pm (AEST...
