Unley Central Development

The article in this week's Eastern Courier lacks a little clarity. It certainly true that Unley Councillors are discussing 11 storey development in the central area (Shopping Centre), what the author didn't tell you is that is already zoned for 14 storeys and has been for at least 20 years. Not one application has been received during this time for such a development.
One of the biggest complaints from Black Forest residents during last year's consultation regarding high rise buildings in that suburb was 'why us, surely this would be better on Unley Rd'. No decisions are ever made without extensive consultation and this one will be no different.
However, the government can force increased density in Unley and will decide themselves where it will be if Council don't.
