Campbelltown Council pushes for lower height limits in Paradise

Campbelltown Council is the latest to push for lower height limits as reported by Emily Griffiths in the East Torrens Messenger.

Elected members voted at this week's meeting to make changes to the council's Residential Development Plan Amendment, which was prepared by the State Government and released for community consultation last October.

Cr Marijka Ryan, who seconded the motion, said by allowing greater sub division in some areas the council would be able to "offset" the effects of reducing the height limit in other parts of the district. "It's absolutely ridiculous to have virtual skyscrapers in some areas, and nothing in others," she told the meeting.

SPRA is unsurprised by yet another council has rejected the State Government's push to build "virtual skyscrapers" in suburbia. SPRA encourage Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Council to follow the example and give consideration to the fact that the entire basis for 30 year plan is questionable.
