    To paraphrase the Australian Anthem, ..Beneath our radiant Southern Cross, We've boundless plains to share;
    Yet here we are with another proposed overdeveloped site, in an area already overdeveloped. Get a backbone Marion council. You’re willing to fight over movable resolvable issues like shopping trolleys, yet continue to allow permanent dogboxes to be built creating issues such as on-street car parking, privacy, overshadowing, local amenity, risks to heritage and character and site coverage.
    Force the plans to fully comply and reject plans that do not meet 100% of requirements. Force DPTI put in place realistic policy. Put an end to allowing this cancer to continue to spread.
    This level of development is not sustainable and is destroying what makes Adelaide one of the top 10 city in the world to live.
    If you agree, help put an end to this cancerous greed and support the petition on the following link.

    Dear Niel,
    I don't know if you are aware yet, the council has rezoned a huge portion of Marion as a new zone 8. This makes most properties to be a one into two only. What most people don't realise is that there is no money to be made in fact it is a loss for a one into two unless you are in a very affluent area or already own the land or buy at a really cheap price. Here is your dilemma now properties that you would think are worth $550,000 or $550,000 as a three site is now worth whatever the house is worth, most being old 50s houses then the price comes down to perhaps somewhere in the $300,000 may be high $300,000's depending on the house. This will be a huge shock to many who are required to sell their properties to pay bond for a care facility, Yes you keep your older houses on larger blocks and ultimately you have lost a lot of value because developers will no longer pay the money they once could to develop. Council coffers will have a lot less money there are fewer properties being built and this will create less income. This will all take a while to be realised as the new policy was only introduced in August. The developers are the ones that keep your property/Land values high. It will be very interesting to see these changes unfold over the following year. Most developers will move into another council area as there are only a few pockets in Marion. You may think this is good and time will tell if it is or not. I feel for the ageing population in Marion council area and all those who property values have been wiped by hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Hi Robyn, thanks for your comments. I agree it will be interesting to see. Money can still be made but clearly the greed is winning over sustainment.
    If people were more considerate and if you own 3 cars, you wouldn’t buy a single car dwelling or would be more considerate on where you parked. But sadly this is not the case and human society has declined.
    Great if Council have finally done something. They have not bothered to respond for over 6 months but if a zoning has been achieved, this doesn’t help the rest of Adelaide’s suburbs.
    I do not wish to see anyone worse off, but sick of seeing the few getting richer (developers, council and government) and continually taking and destroying the livelihood of the many.
