Commenting on the story: Travel exemptions to be fast-tracked as rebel MP breaks ranks

Good to see some logic and commonsense being applied to limiting restrictions imposed on all of us. We are in great danger of Emergency Powers being seen as the norm. – Paul Venables

Congratulations to Messrs Bell and McBride on their common sense. An extension of Emergency Powers until April was unnecessary and unfathomable. It seems the “not one day longer” man has been tripped up on his own rhetoric. Certainly Commissioner Stevens sounded peeved on radio and his version of it all was unclear, to put it mildly. – John Lewis

Commenting on the story: Bold concert hall vision for Festival Plaza and Your views Thursday August 26

A concert hall is primarily about acoustics. It needs to be designed from the inside out. The concept drawing of the concert hall looks beautiful but I do hope no-one will agree to build it without sound engineering and acoustics experts being given the final say in how it is designed.

The Sydney Opera House is a standout example of magnificent architecture that had to be largely reinvented internally to make it fit for purpose because the people funding it didn’t allow experts to do their jobs at the beginning.

By the way, we already have an acoustic marvel that seats up to 750 people (full house) at the Capri Theatre in Goodwood. Successful acoustics are not necessarily about cutting edge architecture. – Sue Pitman

An alternative to building a bold concert hall in the park lands, and one which would be no doubt more achievable, would be to build within the city square. An ideal location would be a block such as that occupied at present by the Freemason’s Hall. – Tony Andrews

Yes we should consider a concert hall in the future, and this design is both elegant and harmonises with the existing Festival Theatre.

The rest of the river frontage is a hotchpotch of buildings, each different and more ugly than the next. At least the potential design of the concert hall is thoughtfully designed. At the moment however we have other priorities. – Irma Denk

You are kidding me. We arrived in SA in 2017 and the Festival Plaza is still in development. The newly opened Plaza car park is a complete shambles.

Have no faith whatsoever that further development of the precinct could be pulled off in a timely way. – Helen McFarlane

Commenting on the story: A voice for cross-border communities during COVID crisis

The selfless dedication and sacrifice over this prolonged period of stress and concern is highly commendable. Well done Paula. – Denise Hobson
