Commenting on the story: Central Market Arcade’s $400m redevelopment

Adelaide does not need any more high-rise buildings. This Adelaide City Council is destroying our city with its obsession with knocking down and replacing our human scale buildings with high-rise.

By all means redevelop the Market Arcade with something which is more attractive and fits in with the heritage features of the Market, but a 35-storey monstrosity on top will ruin those same features and create another characterless, overpriced eyesore. – Sue Henry-Edwards

What a disaster! What a grotesque development!

This is not progress, it is ruination of a unique and loved market precinct.

I feel for the market traders, they may never recover and what is a wonderful presentation of fruit,veg,cheeses etc etc will be replaced by glitzy shops.

Toting your shopping across Grote street to the carpark is not going to be fun.

Shame on the Adelaide Council to allow this to happen. John Oliver

My family and I have been regular visitors to the Central Market since we moved to Adelaide 11 years ago, preferring to give our money to local businesses than supermarkets, and enjoying the cosmopolitan atmosphere there. 

It really is the heart of Adelaide and the many international visitors we have welcomed over the years love to visit.  

It is with alarm that I note some longstanding stall holders have recently shut up shop. 

Change is important, but without the small businesses running the shops and stalls, there will be no Central Market.

I’d like to understand what plans are in place to help support stallholders through the development, and also beyond. Simon Futo

Commenting on the story: “No need” for independent inquiry into SA Health: Marshall

Not that any commission or committee will result in anything. We need and should demand action on the effective and efficient use of our money.

Self-regulation never works and this is the latest example. Graeme Crook
