Commenting on the story: SA looks interstate and overseas for concert hall inspiration

I have a good idea. Let’s plonk it on the park lands. That land is free and who wanted a city in a park anyway? – Garth Owen

Wherever the concert hall is built, stop using the heritage-listed Adelaide park lands as “free land” to build yet another concrete structure. 

Love your park lands. Keep them green, open, and public. – Ingrid Wangel

Commenting on: Your views August 5 and Twin towers set to soar above heritage-listed hotel

So what you’re saying is you would rather keep housing unaffordable and for a very select few in our city.

These apartments make rentals competitive and affordable and allow the homeless more chance of getting a house. While the population grows so must our housing and that’s not been happening. If governments won’t help the housing situation it is left to developers to meet the demand. – Jodie Mattin

I think this is a very ugly, insensitive development and a huge incongruous blight.

What is the real necessity for it to be so high? What is the point of rules if they are broken?

As stated, the 106-metre towers ‘would be 65 metres higher than the maximum recommended building height of 43 metres for the zone, and a “substantial departure” from Development Plan policy’ and necessitate a change to flight paths.

Why is the proposal is “considered eligible to [do] so in accordance with Capital City Zone provisions”? – Diana Jaquillard

Commenting on the story: State Govt tightens social housing eligibility rules and Your views Friday August 6

In regards to your article on the Housing trust apartments in the city and people want to complain, I live in a unit at Christie Downs and there are two empty units here and have been for a couple of years and they are still empty. Why? I don’t understand. – Wayne Pittas
