Vibrant Adelaide - Historic Changes to Adelaide CBD
Last Updated on Tuesday, 27 March 2012 14:27 Written by Howie Tuesday, 27 March 2012 10:22
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
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.
