1880Repliesgreat idea about Leigh St As for Gouger Street, the roadway needs major streetscaping. For a 1 laned, cafe and restaurant street, its ruled by cars. End the 45 degree carparks, narrow the roadway and increase the width of the footpaths. Gouger Street has way more potential than a car traffic funnel that it currently is Both Rundle and Gouger suffer from having a...Last reply by Patrick_27 in CBD Development 4 minutes ago

63RepliesThe existing building has significant architectural merit, and they want to replace it with a yet-another-glass-box that seems to be the standard down the eastern end of Franklin St now. The building was heritage listed, but was removed at the owner's request. Personally I think this is a terrible way to decide what is worth keeping: Chapter manager Nicolette Dilernia said the church had value “if you are a fan of that ’60s modernist,...Last reply by ghs in CBD Development 30 minutes ago

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.
