    Visionary to some, obvious to others, a shocking prospect to the remainder. I was amazed to read the majority of SA people want some sort of nuclear future here. Bring it on I say. Full lifecycle. Maybe even carve off a small parcel of land for waste storage, not part of 'South Australia' anymore. That way there's no waste storage here. It's in that other area called the 'Central Territory'. Perception matters. From The Advertiser: A $20...

    Adelaide has a wonderful unique layout. Victoria Square in the very middle of the city and then another 4 squares surrounding it (Whitmore, Hurtle, Light and Hindmarsh). In my opinion the four squares are by far the biggest wasted potential of Adelaide. Currently they are unused, wasted and ugly spaces. Mainly ugly trees and some grass. If done well, i think each square could become an attraction in itself. I think we could do better than just using them as pretty sitting spaces. I think the...

Adelaide tops cities survey, Sydney last

Adelaide tops cities survey, Sydney last

Adelaide is the country's best-planned and most functional city, while Sydney languishes in last place.

Property groups have commissioned a KPMG audit which ranks capitals on effective city planning, including managing population growth, traffic congestion, and housing affordability.

The audit found smaller cities like Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin functioned the best.

Adelaide shone for being affordable and well-planned, while Brisbane joined its smaller counterparts in scoring well. The Queensland capital was praised for having good planning policies.

At the other end of the scale, the big cities of Melbourne, Perth and Sydney ranked poorly.

Sydney was panned for being unaffordable with too much traffic; planning policies were not great and were not implemented properly.

Melbourne was a mixed bag. The auditors found that good planning policies were in place, but authorities failed to deliver on the ground.

The audit was commissioned by "Built Environment Meets Parliament" (BEMP), an alliance of property groups including the Property Council of Australia and the Australian Institute of Architects.

The average mark for capital cities was 55 per cent. BEMP said the audit was a wake-up call to the federal government to be more hands-on with capital city planning.

Canberra should set a national urban policy with targets, streamline planning approval, and get involved in land release, the group said.

BEMP will hold a summit in parliament house on Wednesday to talk about what should be done.
