30 Year Plan to be fine tuned

It is now 5 years since the state's 30 year plan for Greater Adelaide was announced. In the article today titled "Drive to supersize our city numbers". It seems John Rau thinks that Adelaide could comfortably become home to another million people. It is true that at one time Unley had a much higher population than it does now, and as such the sewers and roads should be able to cope with a higher number today. Believe it or not urban infill has occurred at a greater rate than than government anticipated.
If the plan is to be reviewed this is timely for residents, and that was all of you, who  do not want increased density in Clarence Park and Black Forest to let Mr Rau know what you think. I'll let you know when he calls for submissions.

    Jennie, way back in the days when Unley had a higher population you will find that many homes had a long drop rather than connection to the sewerage system.

  2. I have no idea when sewers were built in Unley, but I will find out.
