Roofs raised for progress

By webmaster

South Australian CBD height restrictions may become relaxed under a review of planning rules, according to Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood.

The State Government will consider raising maximum building heights in the CBD areas as part of a zoning review.

"There is a chance for reform and it would be disappointing if we just tinkered around the edges when we can actually send a message," Mr Yarwood said.

"There are parts of the city where I know for a fact that the vast majority of councillors are not afraid to have a discussion on building heights.

"The city wants development, the city wants progress and we want to make it easier,” he said.

This review is the council’s top priority this year and density and design will also be up for consideration.

The new guidelines will be out by mid-year, however the outcome is uncertain with some of the 12-person council expected to resist overdevelopment and urban sprawl.

Currently, the majority of developments are stopped at 60m, which falls short of providing for more than 27,300 people expected by 2040.

Providing housing is a prominent part of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide: A Volume of the South Australia Housing Planning Strategy.
