    What a giant waste of money, but then again it is the Adelaide City Council so no surprise. What about a "walk" for straight people? What about a "walk" for any other demographic group? Why just for homosexuals? Kind of like womens rights...the hardcore feminists demand equal rights blah blah, but then the moment a bloke treats them just like they would a bloke, it's "oh you cant treat women like that blah blah blah". Now it's the homosexuals. They want equal...

    great 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...

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.
