Multi-Storey Housing approved
Earlier this week Minister Rau announced that he had approved the so called Corridor Development Amendment Plans to allow for multi-storey housing on Unley Rd, Fullarton Rd and Greenhill Rd as well as Norwood Pde and Prospect Rd. This has been sitting on his desk now for quite some time. However, my concerns about how planning approvals would be assessed have come to fruition. On at least 3 occasions I have asked the Minister in a public forum about who the planning authority would be. This stemmed from the removal of Adelaide City Councils ability to assess developments over 10 million dollars. In this case a Development Assessment Commission will asses all applications for buildings of 5 or more storeys. Council have spent much time and effort in consulting with the community on this on the fine details to reduce overshadowing and other impacts to find that this may be ignored.
