The Environment needs to be a priority with all new developments. This is a major area which Australia falls behind. We can be innovative, forward thinking, strategic to ensure all development are environmentally sound. We cannot continue to ignore this pressing issue. Adelaide can lead the way in Australia as the most liveable city, ticking all the boxes.

I believe the construction of new two-storey (and more) housing/accommodation which overlooks an existing residence lacks duty of care toward neighbours, that is the past and present back and front yard privacy may be intruded into and lost by peering two storey neighbour/s culminating in an unjust loss of property value.

I am appalled at the decision to allow further building in the Parklands by way of a hotel complex at the Adelaide Oval. This appears to go against the spirit of any planing to keep the Parklands as park lands. I believed that the land along North Terrace where the railway lines
used to be should have been returned to parklands, but instead it has been used for a convention centre, hotels, a science centre, a new hospital etc. These are all good projects, but shouldn't have been built on what should have been returned to parklands. Let's not create further degradation by allowing this hotel in the Parklands.

Hi Garry - you raise some very good points, especially about greater flexibility in the planning system that will encourage more tourism which draws people here to experience our natural environments. Aspects of this theme were raised in the Natural Resources and Environment discussion paper we released recently, in considering our lands that are currently zoned for agriculture and horticulture. We think having more options which recognise the potential for more tourism and enhancing the liveability of our state's regional areas can be addressed in new approaches in the planning system. And we hope you follow these issues through during the development of the Code and continue to give us feedback. Thanks so much for your comments.

Increasing conservation parks and Botanic gardens in regional areas such as the Fleurieu with greater flora and fauna not only will assist tourism but also assist mitigate climate change and specie extinction.
Further assistance with greater planning flexibility to build tourism accommodation in agricultural zone land will assist tourism growth.
Greater encouragement of green spaces and greater protection of mature trees will assist mitigate climate change and assist with tourism and local liveability.
Thank you
