    If the Memorial Drive tennis stadium is upgraded it should be from the ground up. No patch up jobs! No half measures like the Adelaide Oval where the stadium was built in halves or worse still like Football Park! The northern stand I think is heritage listed, however if you want a world-class stadium it must come down. No sentimentalities! Same with the vines or ivy on the southern stand. That can always grow back if you really want it. So if the government is serious, no half measures....

    I am interested on people's thoughts regarding the relocation of Flinders University to the Adelaide CBD. Having another 20,000-30,000 people in the city every day would be an insane boost to commerce and would be more efficient in general. Locations I think would be good are... 1. The Adelaide Gaol site to the Montefiore Road Bridge. 2. Governors House and the Barracks (Need to be a republic first). 3. West Terrace Cemetery (Cemeteries are a wast of space...but I can see a wee...

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.
