In Magill SA on “To divide land into 4...” at 14 Lorne Avenue Magill SA 5072:

John Frith commented

Allowing a lot of 743 square metres to be divided into four separate titles (average 185m each) may well be permitted under the current development plan, but does that mean Council must approve it?
I would suggest the planning section and the DAP panel seriously think about whether this is in the best interests of all concerned (ignoring the developers obvious interests), before giving this the green light.
It is definitely not what the community in the immediate area wants as evidenced by the support for Council's proposed development plan amendment about to be submitted to the minister. Unfortunately, approval by the minister is still a long way off, so in the meantime let's get the planners thinking more like they used to prior to John Rau's grand ideas for infill development being forced upon us.
Anyone spending any amount of time in the area surrounding UniSA Magill Campus of Lorne Ave, Balmoral Ave, Brougham St, Cosgrove St etc. will tell you that the high levels of traffic and parking congestion are major concerns. If Council’s planners do not encourage developers to submit applications that really do address these concerns then it is the community that suffers further from the resulting overcrowding, noise, congestion and bad conceived urban infill with a lack of space for new residents to have gardens, street trees, storage and off-street parking spaces (one per dwelling is grossly inadequate).
