    Pretty sure I specifically said his sources remain unknown, therefore his stories can not be verified by anyone. If he is able to bash people so openly and freely, then he shouldn't have a problem naming who his sources are. Unless he has something to hide. He rambles on about "faceless men"....yet he him self remains faceless, and he purposely keeps his sources as faceless men to the rest of us. Therefore he is no better then those he attacks in...

    An article I wrote recently might be of interest to economists and demographers and maybe anyone with a interest in Adelaide's future. Enjoy, Malcolm King From the land of third rate politicians, to diabolically dodgy recruitment practices; from a state government that spent $73 million building a one way freeway and then 14 years later, built the return lane at a cost of $400 million; from the understaffed age care facilities to some of the highest energy bills in the world;...

Vibrant Adelaide - Historic Changes to Adelaide CBD

100 Storeys

At 1pm today Minister John Rau announced significant reforms to the Adelaide City development plan.

The key reforms are :

    Unlimited Height for parts of the CBD (CASA Aviation Limits Permitting)
    Significant Height Increases throughout the rest of the CBD
    *Much* Faster approval times
    Less duplication
    Recognise signficances of streetscape
    For full list see the release below.. or join the discussion on the forum.

Here is the topology of the proposed changes.

This is also a workflow diagram for the new DA approval process (this process could take 180 days under the current system).

This comes shortly after the announcement of a new City Design Review Panel to assess all development applications before the DAC.

We anticipate there will be more announcements in the days to come. This is truly an exciting time to be in South Australia.

We'll continue to bring you the latest on this developing story as details come to light.
