This is huge! I did not see this coming at all, totally out of the blue!

I think we'll start seeing a LOT more investment in the city now, with more expensive projects coming into line. This could be interesting regarding CC8 development, will Aspen abandon court plans and go straight to the IDAC? (that'll be the new term we use for the independent development assessment comission).

ABC News online

City council powers curbed (Mark Sibly)

The South Australian Government says it is restoring independence to building planning in Adelaide by limiting City Council powers.

From this week, any application for a building in the city area worth more than $10 million will be considered by an independent development assessment commission.

The State Government says the decision is in line with recommendations of a recent planning review.

SA Infrastructure Minister Pat Conlon admits the City Council will not like the changes but says building companies need confidence that their applications are being judged independently.
WOW THAT'S HUGE!!!
I can not beleive what i am reading. This is amazing news, pitty this was not developed before the whole Victoria park debarcle!
Still i must admit it seems the gov may have pulled the finger out just a little. Keep in up MEDIA MIKE and you might win the next election!

From AdelaideNow:

"But it will not help Aspen Group, the developers who motivated the change.

Adelaide City Council's Development Assessment Panel last week rejected Aspen's $180 million Tower 8 proposal for its City Central development."

Well well, they finally went too far and have suffered the consequences.

Great news for Adelaide and probably very timely in view of the building boom we're in.

I assume the general consensus is that this is awesome news. But what are the down sides, if any?

With the change in planning powers from the ACC to the State Government, will the various height restrictions we currently have in place be removed or atleast raised to a decent level?

Even still there should be bins in the train station...
My point was, if bins are too dangerous for stations, why are they on the trains?

Paranoia.

Fantastic news!!!! First Big Brother gets axed and now this!! It's about time that the ACC was shown the door on major projects but it's a pity that it has taken so long. Hopefully we'll get some really nice projects as a result of this change!
