    Leonard Cohen joins Blair brought by Toyota's carbon neutral program. Cohen discusses Dr Tim Flannery from last week's Andrew Denton program. Blair asks if his theories about the rise of sea levels are true. Cohen says the real people to talk to are those who spend their lives managing risk. Big insurers are more convinced that climate change is a matter of some concern, as are big investment companies. In Victoria at the moment there are a number of applications for development on the water front. Some of these have been put on hold because it is possible that a sea level rise would undermine the houses. Seaside councils are already looking at what a sea level rise would mean. Cohen says they currently work with a big Adelaide law firm. The staff their have asked for the switches to be put up at desk height so they can turn everything off when they leave. This can save 10% of the power bill. He says that everyone needs to set an example.

    Richardson interviews Kingston District Council chairman Evan Flint about the new Cape Jaffa Anchorage Marina which is now open for business. Flint says the development has taken longer than expected, but it is complete now. He says there was some community opposition, but he believes the marina is good progress. He says power and water is yet to be put on, and for the short-term, fuel, power and loading will still happen round at the jetty. Flint notes the fishers now pay marina fees, but it is a world class facility. Richardson asks about the planned major aquaculture development. Flint says he doesn't know the starting date, although part of the funding the WA-based development company received from the SA Govt hinged on it. Flint goes on to talk about the development spin-offs for the town of Kingston, saying 108 houses will be built in two years. He says it will be a challenge to find enough builders and tradespeople.

    Richardson says there may be some good news for the future of the 100 retrenched Dartmoor mill workers, with the Glenelg Shire Council approving a $30m pulp mill just outside Heywood which may provide 30 new jobs. Geoff White, mayor, Glenelg Shire Council says the mill will transport milled chips to the Port of Portland via rail for storage which will eventually be exported overseas. He says he doesn't know who the contractors are and where exactly the mill would be but understands that the building will begin in the next few days. He says the timing would have been better if Carter Holt Harvey had extended the Dartmoor operation into 2009, given that the job opportunities won't be occurring until then. He says one could speculate about CHH not selling the site to block competitors from getting in.

    Scott says a friend of his came to his house after he had been trail bike riding all day. He says his friend's bike had its muffler break that day whilst he was out riding. He says later when his wife took out the garbage a neighbour complained about the noise the bike made. He says the argument that followed was frustrating because the man was angry and was contradicting himself. He says this was sorted out since the bike was repaired the next day. He says he has also been disappointed how the council is digging up and upgrading parks. He says this means he finds it hard to find stuff to do with his autistic son during the day. Perry says often tearing up parks comes down to greed and developments. He says often land is considered too valuable to remain as parkland. They discuss how the media tends to focus on negative stories rather than positive ones. Perry says it is like how people go to car races just to see the crashes. Scott says having a son with autism has opened his eyes to how under resourced disability services are. He says we do not cater enough for people with special needs. Perry says society is all about profit rather than community.

Byner says the State Govt is trying to take credit for its stormwater harvesting efforts but [Salisbury Council's] Colin Pitman has described the State Govt's contribution as small. Xenophon says Pitman has won international water awards for his efforts. He says the European community is working with Salisbury Council on harvesting. He says stormwater harvesting must be fast-tracked.

    Interview with David Paton, water expert, about the water crisis. Byner says there was a water rally yesterday in the city. He says Victorian Premier John Brumby has criticised SA for not doing enough to save water. He criticises Brumby for his comments. He accuses the Water Minister of "babbling" and criticises the Federal Govt for "scrimping" on its bailout package. He accuses the State Govt of trying to take credit for stormwater harvesting when, according to [Salisbury Council's] Colin Pitman, its contribution is very small. He says it is time to make decisions for the good of the nation. Paton says a bit of water has been coming in from the Mt Lofty Ranges has eased the pressure slightly but there is a need for a long term plan to reduce water consumption. He says in the short term, there is enough water to save the lower lakes. He says there are a range of ways of being less reliant on the Murray.

    Weir says on the Morning Program he has been talking about how, into the future, they embrace the mining boom, and also develop northern cities to cope with it, while maintaining a healthy balance with the environment. He says Hughes is still very much in and behind the idea of a desalination plant for the top of the gulf. Hughes says he has strongly supported, in principle, desalination for over 10 years now, but on the proviso that it be renewable energy-based. He says that a community like Whyalla hangs on the end of the pipeline from the River Murray - a highly stressed system. Weir says in places like Saudi Arabia they take the salt inland. Hughes says he has asked the council to write to BHP Billiton to add an additional spec to the environmental impact statement process. He says at this stage it doesn't look like there is an economic use for the volume of brine that would be produced. He says OneSteel's Project Magnet has led to a significant increase in water demand. Hughes says that they are looking to reduce water use through conservation methods and recycling.

The council says the bypass would drive tourists away from Renmark. CEO Barry Hurst says while it might cut travelling time, it's expensive and holds little benefit for local communities.

    NSW residents rate noise as a bigger problem than rats, drugs, or dog poo. It's highest on the list of citizen complaints, but it's listed low by councils and politicians. Hagar Cohen reports. Academic and former pub owner Shane Howman says laws often class noise as 'unwanted sound', which is a problem for the live music industry. Resident complaints have closed down a lot of live music at local pubs, but Howman argues that if the pubs were there first nearby residents should not have the right to have them closed. In SA and WA new legislation focuses on the Order of Occupancy when dealing with noise complaints. Brisbane's Fortitude Valley is now defined as a popular music precinct, and new residents have to accept the noise as part of the environment. Luna Park in Sydney has long been part of the debate over excessive noise. Arthur Chesterfield-Evans, Former NSW MP, voted to keep the Luna Park rides running, but now lobbies against noise in neighbourhoods. Chesterfield-Evans says he bases his anti-noise campaigning on research on rates of deafness in the community. Gary Goland, Noise Watch Australia, comments that many residents resent the intrusion of leaf-blowers and the community is prepared to act on noise issues. New York has recently enacted new noise legislation and Europe requires every city to be 'noise mapped' to stop quiet areas from becoming noisier. Gabrielle Nicholson, Sound Scape Artist, takes Cohen to the Domain Walkway to explore the sounds that echo through it. The Qld Govt recorded nearly 19 000 noise complaints in one year. Peter Noland, Director, PKA Acoustics Consulting, comments that noise control has been passed from state to local Govt which he thinks is a mistake. Suzanne Cusack, Professor of Music, New York Uni, explains how some kinds of music have been used in prisons as a form of torture. Dr Somes Job(*), Acting Director, ITA NSW Centre for Road Safety, comments that personality can influence how much a person is affected by noise and whether they will suffer ill health as a result. The World Health Organisation lists problems that can be caused by noise.

    Continuing the regular conversation about state issues with Geraghty, Such and Lucas. Caller Con says he understand Parliamentarians and councillors are elected to represent the people. He says what occurs behind closed doors should be readably accessible public information. He asks why the public cannot access such information. Such says there is little that occurs behind closed doors, with only a rare committee hearing not being made public. Con says controversial council decisions is one of the things he is talking about. Geraghty says most council meetings are open to the public. Such says some councils have a record of secrecy. Lucas says he suspects Con is talking about govt depts and council committees. He says confidential meetings do occur between business and govts. Byner says Pat Conlon has released a statement about new ticketing on public transport. Such says they may wish to look at a the system in Singapore. He warns the NSW and Vic Govts have spent a lot of money in not getting the system right. Lucas says we may find that thousands of SA Water bills with a zero balance have been sent to customers. Geraghty says she has received zero balance letters from banks. Such says stores, such as David Jones do not send out zero balance accounts.

He says he has heard nothing about Housing Trust residents and SA Water billing. Geraghty says she will follow up on the issue. Caller Jan thanks Geraghty for fixing her daughter's housing problem. Byner asks Rob Lucas about the proposal to close Hindley Street near the nightclub precinct. He says he cannot imagine not having cars on the road will change the behaviour of those drunk or on drugs. Lucas says the Council and the Govt's solutions have been to close things down. He says he suspects the Govt will back off about closing venues at 3:00 am, although the police are trying to sign publicans to a lock out. He says a police presence on the weekend would be a better solution, as is done in Melbourne. Such says the offending behaviour needs to be dealt with. Geraghty says there is a responsibility on publicans to not serve people clearly intoxicated. Byner says he recently went to the Brisbane Mall which is heavily policed, where an officer told him there are virtually no assaults now. Such says patrons should take responsibility for their actions. [Cont.]

    Interview with Hendrik Gout, Senior Writer, Independent Weekly, about political issues. Gout talks about the cockle industry in the Coorong area. He discusses the over-fishing of cockles and the current "war" along the Coorong over allocation of licences to fish them. He says Parliament is being lobbied over the issue. Gout talks about the possibility of introducing an anti-corruption committee. Byner says SA Auditor-General Ken MacPherson previously made scathing comments about some councils not releasing information to him that they should. Byner says [MP] Tom Koutsantonis has called for this to stop and legislation will be necessary. Gout discusses the options for dealing with these sorts of stalemates, including the establishment of an anti-corruption committee. He predicts this will be an election issue and proceeds to discuss the shift of Labor further to the right.

His parents are at the bedside of his seven-year-old sister who is in the Women's and Children's Hospital in a critical condition. Callum Phillips was said to have a reckless spirit. He died in Prospect after a concrete pillar collapsed on him and his sister after they were swinging on a gate. The school called in grief counsellors. The family was renting the property. The gate and pillar were not approved by council. Investigations are underway into the collapse of the structure. There are no steel reinforcement supports. The break in the structure occurred where the bolts were fitted. Laws says Local Govt must approve such structures.

Brendan Corby says that would be a fair statement. He says it is very difficult to ascertain the inside construction of the pillars without a forensic inspection, which should be done by a suitably qualified technician. He says under the Development Regulations 2008, any masonry fence exceeding one metre in height requires approval by the Approval Authority. He says the Building Code of Australia does not specifically talk about isolated tiers for front fences per se. Bevan says the Prospect Council is saying there have been new tougher building codes produced, but it is possible this fence was made before then. Corby says the current regulations came in, in 1993, and were slightly amended by the 2008 regulations. He says prior to 1970 there are high potential problems. He says changes need to be brought in.

    Byner says the Economic and Finance Committee heard evidence about local Govt yesterday from the Ombudsman Ken McPherson. Koutsantonis says this is about expiation notices. He says he knows of a shopping centre owner who is recording the number plates of cars of local residents who live opposite the shopping centre. He says the council is issuing expiation notices to clear up carparks for customers. He says these people are being fined with no evidence of time limit breaches by a malicious third party complaint in order to free up a private carpark. He says this is an abuse of expiation notices. He says the SA Police would not do this on the request of a business owner. He says this is not the way the fines are supposed to be used. Bruce says problem has been around a long time. He says he had problems back when Mark Brindal was the SA Local Govt Min. He says all this smells of corruption to him. Byner says the Local Govt Act has given councils a lot of power but some of these laws have had their intent corrupted so they can be used in a way they should not be. Koutsantonis says this is not corruption, it is 'mal-administration'. He says it is obvious people who do not understand the act are imposing the powers incorrectly. He says often council administration is keeps its activities in the dark from councillors and the Auditor-General. He says the Ombudsman has to invoke Royal Commission powers to look into this. He says the only way the Auditor-General can look at a local council is on the recommendation of the Treasurer.

    Byner says former Auditor-General and acting Ombudsman Ken McPherson has had to invoke Royal Commission powers to get information out of three councils and threaten to invoke them on many others, accusing them of being 'sneaky' and 'tricky'. He says McPherson has accused councils of not maintaining proper records or carrying out investigations into offences before issuing expiations but his key finding was 'malicious prosecution of people'. He says good on McPherson for raising this issue. He says the Local Govt Act gives councils enormous power and it is time these powers were amended. He says the LGA apparently approached the state govt offering to handle these revelations in house but the govt said no. He says last year the Economic and Finance Committee recommended that the Auditor-General have the same powers of audit over councils as he has over other govt agencies but this hasn't happened.

    Weir says Port Pirie is looking to the future. He says the Port Pirie Council has been thinking about how to deal with rubbish. He says there have been news reports about the potential closure of the dump. Brock says the EPA with Zero Waste are seeking to consolidate landfills across SA so they're putting in more strict controls on dumps. He says this is good since Zero Waste and waste management guidelines need to be tightened and we need to create more opportunities for recycling. He says the council has been looking at the best options for waste management. He says the EPA is asking them for a development plan to close the dump by July 2010. He says this means they will not be able to put rubbish in the landfill that will produce methane gas. He says they are looking at bringing in curbside collection for green waste and recycling. He says they are negotiating with surrounding councils on how to manage waste. He says they have not made a decision on details of the collection service. He says the service will cost more so residents will have bare the burden on their rates. He says it will most likely boil down to an extra $10 a month to have their rubbish recycled. Weir says the council is also looking at water recycling plans. Brock says they are speaking to the SA Govt about a water recycling plant in Pirie. He says because they are reliant on the Murray they want to ensure they use water efficiently. He says they are going to audit all their parks and gardens to become more efficient. He says ICLEI-Oceania in collaboration with local and state Govts and the NRM board have come forward with a proposal to undertake a ICLEI-Oceania and water quality check list. He says they seek to establish a water consumption reduction gaol and water quality improvement goal in Pirie.

    - The Mitcham Council says it wants a flood mitigation plan for the Brown Hill and Keswick Creek's catchment, but no longer wants to be a part of one being developed. The Mitcham, West Torrens, Burnside, Unley, and Adelaide Councils have spent four years developing the $105M flood mitigation plan. Mitcham Mayor, Ivan Brooks, says the project must proceed, but he wants the costs and environmental impacts thoroughly investigated before work begins.
    - Fed Oppn Leader, Malcolm Turnbull, says there is more reason to increase the pension rate now than there was when the previous Govt rejected such a rise. He says the Govt is showing a 'cold indifference' to refusing to put up the single rate for the age pension.

Campana says she is still trying to get her head around the issues. She says the Mayor of Mitcham is in a better position to talk about the detail. She says she gathers the council has concerns about the current stormwater management plan. Campana says this includes Mitcham, Burnside, Adelaide, Unley and West Torrens [councils]. She says that concerns are the current plan doesn't provide for sufficient activities in relation to water reuse, aqua storage, recycling and flood mitigation. She says the LGA are hoping to get a briefing from all of the councils to see if they can provide any assistance.

Campana says MacPherson is the Acting Ombudsman at the moment. She says she has been chatting with MacPherson over the last couple of weeks on the issues that he has raised with the committee. She says it is a concern to them, but the good news it is only a small number of councils being talked about. Campana says he didn't name the councils yet, so she is not familiar with who they are. She says they have sent an email to all CEOs, giving them a copy of the transcript. She says it is primarily to do with the work of inspectoral staff that issue expiation fees and notices. Campana says he is suggesting that some administrative practices aren't as good as they could be. Conlon says that according to Greg Kelton, in the 'Tiser today, it includes malicious prosecution of people. Campana says the Ombudsman's functions are confined to administrative practices. [cont]

The 10 yo boy and his 7 yo sister had been swinging on a gate in Le Hunte Ave when it fell on them. New fences over one and a half metres high come under the council's building code.

    The Mitcham Council has pulled out of a deal with four other councils over a plan to manage stormwater in the Brownhill and Keswick creeks catchment. The council says it wants to see more details before it makes a commitment. The $105m flood mitigation plan involves the Mitcham, West Torrens, Unley, Burnside and Adelaide councils, and has been four years in the planning. Brooks says the final cost and environmental impact of the plan is still unknown. Trainer says that Mitcham Council's withdrawal from the plan is an appalling decision. The Mitcham Council maintains a flood mitigation plan is essential. It is seeking a new arrangement with the other councils.

He says a lot of councils have been involved for years trying to arrive at a scheme to control flood waters to stop the damage to thousands of houses along the way. He says Mitcham Council have just bailed out of the scheme. He says the West Torrens Mayor, John Trainer, is quoted as saying he is 'astounded'. He says while residents will be stunned, there will be conservation people who will be happy because they do not want a big dam being at Brown Hill Creek as it goes up through the Reserve and towards Blair National Park.

He says the Code of Conduct complaints that some of the elected members sometimes bring about are often brought to the Ombudsman. Campana says one of the queries raised is to do with councils unable to provide information to the ombudsman. She says there is an interest into looking into these things on an LGA level. Pengilly says he is sure the vast majority of councils try to do the right thing however the information from the Ombudsman was categorical about problems in local govt. He says there are some inherent things in there that have a great big smell about them. Pengilly says expiation notices have been issued without any evidence. He says he is moving on from the portfolio after the reshuffle and has had better days.

She says this will cause extra traffic and parking problems, and the toilets will attract graffiti and litter. She says the council did not consult residents. She says they have written many letters objecting to the development but have not got anywhere at all.

He says one of the projects they looked at, after discussions with the Angaston Management Group, was to revisit an earlier plan to develop the town. He says they sought funding from Planning SA through the People From Places program, along with council's contribution, and engaged consultants to come up with an urban design framework.

He says one of the main issues is water. He says they believe it is a must that the Upper Eyre Peninsula and Upper Spencer Gulf get themselves off the River Murray system. Pollock says climate change is another important issue that is going to effect the entire nation. He says regional infrastructure - it needs to be kept up with more assistance from the Govt. He says federal grant funding is another major issue that needs to be kept on top of. Weir says the Austn Council of Local Govts have suggested they are going to look at some of these things mentioned. He says [Kevin] Rudd has promised a constitutional recognition of local govt. Pollock says that he guesses this refers to how they will best deal with the constitution recognition as it moves itself forward.

    The SA Govt has approved development on the old Le Cornu site in North Adelaide. Residents are divided about the site. The Adelaide City Council says over the years five proposals were approved by the site but developers walked away. After a stand off between Con Makris and the current council, the SA Govt stepped in and approved plans for a six storey residential and shopping complex. The council says it offered a five storey complex. Makris companies donated $180,000 in donations to the SA Govt in the 2005/6 election year and more than $250,000 throughout the life of the Rann Govt. Con Makris and the SA Govt says this had no bearing on the Govt. Holloway say the decision stands on its merits. Makris says it is ridiculous for the site to be empty for 20 years. He says as developers they are perfectionists. He says the group is making money in Sydney. He says the SA Govt only told them they had approval today. Makris says his staff and not him were involved in changing the decision, working with Planning SA. Con Makris says again he will say his group donates to all political parties, football parties, charities, sick children and it is part of creating a name. He says it is ridiculous to think the development had to do with the govt. He says the group compromised for the people in North Adelaide and there is no noise pollution. He says he does not remember how much he donated to the Labor Party as his people took care of that. He says when people see the development they will change their minds.

Lainie asks what he thinks about Govts like the Rann Govt that spends up to $145,000 on the Murray ad. Dominic says from what we know about COAG nothing has been done, so the ad means nothing, and is a waste of money. He says pensioners can hardly afford the bare essentials of life, and the Govt says people can wait, but are not the people paying the Govt. Blair says she has the utmost of respect for people who protest for their issues, but a lot of that has been watered down over time. She says recently on the issue of the Victoria Parklands she thought the plans were garbage, and that the process was so influenced by the 'small but incredibly vocal minority', the Parklands Preservation Society. She says the spin the City Council tried to put on it was that it would be exactly like Central Park, which was 'garbage'.

He says below lock one in SA everyone is in despair. He says meanwhile SA Water are erecting a Taj Mahal in Victoria Sq. He says this does not convey a good message to rural SA. He says Adelaide is OK but it is still wasting gigalitres of stormwater while a desal plant will cost 'giga-dollars'. He says while this is good for Adelaide it does nothing for rural people. He says the SA Govt has pulled the rug from under the Adelaide City Council but the Govt looks like it may become a council itself since it is so Adelaide focused. He says Aust has to view itself as one country and get rid of the steps of state borders. He says he wants Fed intervention in the Murray Darling system so they can reallocate water. He says we need to look at other solutions like how a company in Melbourne is researching rain making with cloud physics experts. He says these experts who have helped make rain in China cannot even get a word in with any SA Govt MP or officials.

    When it comes to tearing down a tree in Adelaide, where you live makes all the difference. Councils and communities can't agree on which trees should stay and which should go. On one side of Adelaide a tree defies its owner, on the other side of town an owner takes the chainsaw to his. Andrew McDonald has been contacting the West Torrens Council trying to get rid of a tree with no luck, even though it could be dangerous. Recent storms have proved to be too much for the tree, it fell down, and could have killed somebody. The West Torrens Council is standing by its decision by the Development Assessment Panel to not cut down the tree. In Coromandel Valley residents fight to keep their trees. Moira Humphreys says it wasn't necessary for Cliff Mundy to cut down his tree. Wayne Ellis also had a fight on his hands with the Onkaparinga Council. A group of trees at Stonyfell are earmarked for destruction defying the residents. Andrew McDonald can't even trim the tree, the only thing he can do is clear it away.

    The third stage of Port Adelaide's Newport Quays development has been knocked back once again. Stage Three has always been a bone of contention for the Port Adelaide Enfield Council. Stage Three has five buildings, towering 14 storeys high. The council oppose this because it is unpleasant with boxy apartments. Critics say this knock back will allow Urban Construct the chance to build something with a bit of class and quality. It will take more than tarting up. Johanson says there really are no winners or losers in this.

Gout says he does not know many North Adelaide residents who are cheering about it. He says being given major project status by the SA Govt enabled the development to override to an extent the Adelaide City Council. He says the outrage was so overwhelming that the development was knocked back a couple of storeys. He says there will be questions as to why the guidelines can be bent for a major developer. He says the Opposition approves of the development. Byner asks for Paul Hamra to call him some time.

    Mike Deare says Michael Maguire did not talk to him before he wrote his article, so he is writing off the back of a great deal of ignorance. He says the Adelaide Oval is the only venue in Adelaide that really hosts international sport, whether cricket or rugby. He says the redevelopment of the western grand stands is due to start next March, and will be a $85 million investment by SACA. He says a part of the redevelopment will be to put in state-of-the-art, international standard, football changing rooms. Bevan says Michael Maguire writes if it is accepted that heritage has been discarded in SACA's quest to build a $90 million 'monument of indulgence for members' they might as well start from scratch. Deare says the development of the grounds has been a compromise between meeting modern requirements and retaining heritage. He says the Old Scoreboard is very important. He says they have had to work with both the State Govt and the City Council. He says the brick arches at the back of the ground, the brick work and book ends at the end of the northern and southern ends, and the facade along the committee room and players' cricket rooms, will all be retained. He says the seating capacity will be increased to at least 35,000, with further increases to around 45,000 over the next decade. Abraham says if only Aussie rule could be held there. Deare says they would love to have AFL football there but at the moment it is the province of the SANFL out of Football Park or AAMI Stadium. He says it is primarily a cricket ground and continues to return to Cricket Australia the third highest gate returns of any venue in Australia.

Tuffnell says some overseas countries have zero tolerance to alcohol but authorities here have determined that drivers are still capable of driving at .05. He says he approves of zero tolerance but it would be hard to introduce into this culture. Chris thinks there should be tougher roadworthiness inspections of cars in SA. Tuffnell agrees, but adds this is a Dept of Transport policy issue. Spiro says the legal limit of alcohol is an issue belonging to Road Safety Minister Carmel Zollo and Transport Minister Patrick Conlon.

    Conlon says approval for the Le Cornu site in North Adelaide is big news. He says the big question is now if this is the one that will get built after previous developers have pulled out after getting approval. Pilkington says Con Makris said he has never had approval until now. Conlon says that is correct, as he took over the site in 2001, but before that there was Joe Oberdan (*) who bought it back in 1989. He says the next stage is to look at all the suburbs and see where the State Govt is headed in terms of changing zones. Wendy Campana says this project goes back a long way, and the media has not always reported it properly because the Adelaide City Council did give it lots of approvals along the way. She says a review of the Development Act is underway at the moment, and the Govt has indicated it will look at being able to take over transit-orientated development. She says the Govt consults, but not in the same way as the local Govt would do it, and development plans can be overridden. She says concerns are being raised by communities and councils about the size of blocks, and the Code may not be delivering the mixture and character that people are used to in SA. She says she hopes the Govt will be happy to talk about some of the outcomes that they have found via trials with ten councils and with talking to the development industry. She says the Govt is looking at introducing what they call 'character criteria', which would be different to the Code itself.

He says Prospect Council has announced plans for a major redevelopment that could see high density multi storey housing along a transport corridor, with electric trains and the highest speed broadband available in Adelaide. O'Loughlin says the are going to redevelop three separate areas. He says the council will engage with the community to redevelop Churchill Rd with professional urban designers and planners. He says the area is near the train line which also has the Cybernet Broadband Service running along it. He says the area could be much more than it is. He says town houses, apartments and high tech commercial offices is something the community should have a think about. He says they want to make it an ecologically sustainable employment base. He says the plan allows for three storey buildings but they are asking the community to consider something higher if they are of a high quality. He says they want to increase density along Prospect Rd but keep the side streets more low density. He says they are seeking to make Prospect Rd like Rundle St and Rundle Mall. He says they are also looking to develop the area around the Prospect Oval. He says it was originally developed when the SANFL was more popular, before the AFL became more prominent. He says now crowd numbers are not as big they are looking to work together with the North Adelaide Football Club, the Tennis Club and the Prospect District Cricket Club to come up with a better model for the area. He says they may look at building a netball stadium for the area.

He says the Govt didn't want anything to be built on the site. He says Anne Moran and the Mayor didn't give approval.

Tim Rah(*), resident, talks about his attempts to gain a parking permit, which was denied when the council examined aerial photographs of his backyard. Charlie Brown, technology expert, talks about the mechanics behind programs such as Google Earth and EView. Grimshaw says the council in question released a statement saying it relied on aerial photography rather than satellite imagery.

    Cameron says there has finally been a decision over the development of the old Le Cornu site on O'Connell St, in North Adelaide. He says it will only be six stories high, compared with its originally proposed nine stories which is twice as high as any development Adelaide City Council was prepared to approve before the State Govt took over authority for the project. He says Paul Holloway, SA Planning Minister, held a press conference today at the State Administration Building to make the announcement. He says there have been rumours circulating since then that security staff at State Admin were instructed not to allow members of Council in to the press conference. He says he has contacted the Minister via his media minders, and have been told Holloway is in meetings all afternoon and is not available. Susan Clearihan says she is unaware of security preventing access to any council staff members attending the release, but she is aware that they were not invited. She says she would have thought it would have been appropriate for her communications administration officers to attend, but they were given the message not to attend. She says she is still waiting to see what the development will look like, and the council did write to the Minister for Urban Development and Planning, stating what concerns they had and outlined concerns surrounding the scale, height, and design of the building, as well as the degree of licensed premises and whether or not there was adequate car parking. She says while council may have access to the plans tomorrow, they are certainly 'behind the eight-ball'. She says Adelaide City Council has approved at least five developments for the site, but that it has always been the developer who has chosen not to proceed. Cameron says five to ten story buildings are not unusual with other places like North Adelaide around Australia. Clearihan says there are some other sites along O'Connell St, North Adelaide, that now the precedent has been set it will be very difficult for the council to say no to developers. Cameron says one of Holloway's media minders pointed out that the press conference was a 'media only' event.

    Kerry-Anne Walsh, The Sun Herald and Glenn Milne, The Sunday Telegraph join Speers to discuss politics. Regarding criticism by Kevin Rudd of comments by Malcolm Turnbull that Australia's market is well-placed to ride out the storm Walsh says the criticism is unfounded, and Milne adds using the word 'light years ahead' to describe the Australian banking system is overboard. Walsh says Kevin Rudd is 'rattled' on the economy and Milne says every govt in the world should be nervous with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, adding there is a fine line to tread with urging restraint and reducing confidence. Regarding Rudd's announcement of a local govt committee, they joke about what it should be called and Walsh asks what 'another talkfest' could achieve. Walsh says the agenda of infrastructure needs and local govt recognition in the constitution is huge and asks how much has come from previous summits. Regarding Malcolm Turnbull's recent appointment as Oppn Leader, Milne says he has done well but agrees that 'not everyone is Mark Latham', adding Labor frontbenchers look worried. They agree Julie Bishop has the right to demand Treasurer. Walsh says it would change the gender balance compared to Labor but Turnbull has made a show of taking consensus and being consultative. Milne mentions Hockey and Abbott as contenders. Kevin Rudd is in New York next week and they agree we are getting used to Julia Gillard sitting in his chair. [cont]

    The approval given to the development of the old Le Cornu site in North Adelaide shows Adelaide is 'open for business', according to the State Govt. work will begin next year. Paul Holloway says some changes were made to the original proposal, and that it is a very exciting development. He says whether Adelaide needs another function centre is debatable. The project was given major project status last year, taking the authority away from the City Council. Anne Moran says process has been 'thrown out of the window' and the concerns of residents have been ignored in preference to the developer.

He says years ago the Corporation of the City of Marion was buying up property in what's part of Westfield Shopping Town, and they too were buying up property. He says people were greatly advantaged, but some residents who didn't want to shift went to the council asking who was buying the property in the area and were told by the council they didn't know. He says the Ombudsman had a thorough investigation and told the council it wasn't ethical and moral to refuse to tell the residents the truth of what was of direct concern to them. (Continued)

Byner has even heard stories that councillors elected are told by a Govt department head to get a FOI to seek details on a matter.

He says he's concerned Govt will expect some legislative change, when you look at the calendar there are only 15 sitting days between now and the end of the year and it they want to implement this code by March 1st clearly changes will have to pass Parliament before the end of the year.

    Continuing discussion: Yvonne Moore disagrees with Paul Holloway that the code is not about increasing density, it is. She says the new code will allow bulky two story housing with no side setbacks of new houses from side boundaries, and a tiny three metre setback between a house and the back fence. She thinks this will lead to 80% of Adelaide's houses and gardens being demolished within 20 to 30 years to allow for the subdivisions. She wants to know why the govt want to unleash such wholesale and brutal destruction on our garden suburbs when there are other alternatives such as decentralisation to cope with the need for extra housing. Paul Holloway says the development under the code is happening now and has been for years. He says suburbs with character like Norwood and Unley will have special codes to give greater protection. Abraham says private schools that own the houses are getting their demolition approvals ticked off by council because they know the code is coming. Val is worried about unethical developers and their money. She asks Paul Holloway if under his govt there will never be an independent commission against crime and corruption? Holloway talks about the anti corruption branch within the police force. Wendy Campana says development assessment panels were bought in by the government a few years ago, and there are people who are not elected sitting on the panels. She says if they will be subject to public scrutiny before they're found to be guilty the independent people with specialist skills may not be interested in participating again. Abraham says the whole of Adelaide could end up looking like Mawson Lakes there's not a lot of diversity in housing styles.

Steve Palyga is happy to talk to the residents to address any concerns of the community like the design and scale of the development, the local traders and workers who are frightened for their jobs, claiming there's been fear mongering to whip them up into a frenzy. He says introducing additional retail facilities in a town brings more customers into the area. Weir says Sandra Kanck, Democrats, has suggested the tender process was unfair, didn't allow the current supermarket operator to put in an adjusted plan or proposal, yet Leasecorp was allowed to do that. Palyga discusses what exactly happened with the council selecting Lease Corp as a preferred tenderer on price and quality of the development. He says it's a perfectly normal way of dealing with expressions of interest. He talks about tender processes that have strict requirements about what the person who is asking for a tender can do. Weir asks if we need another supermarket considering there is one in Kadina 7kms away, Palyga describes the need to have another supermarket in the area due to population growth. He talks about similar fears expressed in 2003 when Woolworths was being established in Goolwa. He says when it was built, it caused a lot of people to come in from other areas of the south coast, now there's not a single vacancy in the main street, and Woolworths and Foodland are next to each other and are both trading well.

He says it affects residential development and wants to introduce a new code for most areas of Adelaide [non heritage and non bushfire prone areas will be exempt]. He says the govt will expand the number of areas where there won't be development approval for things like small sheds, decks and pergolas, these aren't within the planning system in other states. He says there will be improvements in new homes that are bought from a display village, where they won't need comprehensive planning assessments. He wants a new scheme for straight forward applications, therefore not tying up council resources. He says there are limits on developments that include shade cloths within the building envelope like in Victoria, who have been doing this for nearly 20 years and get applications through in a month. He says in some cases it takes up to a year for a display home to get built. He says in every council area in Adelaide there are developments that are built up against the edge of boundaries as land is getting scarcer and need to fit more people in. (Continued)

    North Haven residents have gone to court against the Port Adelaide Enfield Council to try and get the marina plans redrawn. The MFS fire boat Gallantry made its way around markers showing where the new plans will lay out. Four residents argue the new marina does not conform with safety standards. Lawyers for Crown Marina argue this does not apply to dredging vessels. Residents are concerned their boats will not be covered by insurance.

    Godfrey says Save Our Suburbs is an SA lobby group opposed to the demolition of heritage homes in SA. He says there is a bill being considered in Parliament which will prevent developers from being able to demolish heritage homes. Fisher says the proposal put forward by the govt is just set of guidelines remove almost all the existing planning protections which are weak as it is. Fisher says the new changes would make the demolition of heritage properties easier. He says successive Labor and Liberals govts have claimed councils set development plan rules, but in fact council submit would they would like, to the SA Govt and the minister gets to bend and weave on those rules. Godfrey says the Linde Reserve Redevelopment proposal was turned around by community pressure. He says in the 1990s the original Save Our Suburbs Group stopped then Premier Jeff Kennett, from his range of proposals which are similar to those by the SA Govt. He says he lost that following election. He says in NSW Frank Sartor's planning agreements 'smell of corruption' as developers are the biggest donators of money to the major political parties. He says recently the NSW Premier Nathan Rees took over from Morris Iemma and sacked Frank Sartor. He says SA MPs should revisit the proposals but fears the power of the development industry.

Such says this Govt and the previous one have done very little to tackle the issue of graffiti and vandalism. He says this problem costs millions. He says it costs Onkaparinga Council $0.5M, so this means 500 families in the area paid their rates for nothing. He says there are gangs in SA that systematically set out to tag and deface much of the city. He says many of them are not kids but are adults in their 20s and 30s. He says the Govt program does not tackle the root cause of vandalism which often relates to poor performance at school and family problems. He says they also need to look at restricting access to spray paint cans. He says every measure he has put up in Parliament to tackle graffiti has been rejected by the SA Govt because it is too hard, expensive or difficult. he says there is no deterrent for vandals at all.

Bentley says as soon as a car free day is suggested people think the cars will be stopped at Gawler. He says the plan would be to close a few streets in the city, but still allow cross flow traffic. He says it would be up to the City Council and other authorities. McCarthy says the Adelaide Lord Mayor is supportive of the idea, but has said Adelaide is a linear city and traffic needs to flow. Bentley says New York and Melbourne have trialled the idea. He says he is a member of the Rotary Club of Walkerville and in September next year there will be an around Australia ride. He says his idea is to have the car free day coincide with their arrival in Adelaide. He says he has collected signatures from cafes at Henley Beach and Glenelg, and a number of functions.

    Weir says recently he has spoken to the Streaky Bay mayor Ian Gunn and the convener of the Friends of Sceale Bay Bob Minnecon and Grant Hobson who are concerned about subdivisions and the effect on the coastline. Weir says SA Planning Minister Paul Holloway has said people should not develop as this will ruin the coastline. Vowells says there was enthusiasm over the development happening and people were positive and Holloway. He says the publicity given to the 'Friends of Sceale Bay' has given a negative slant on the development. Weir says one chief criticism by Minnecon was the fact the Streaky Bay Council were not very forward about the development or those behind it. He says Minnecon said Ceduna and Port Lincoln Council put plans on the table that more people could comment on. Vowells says the development is taking place at Cape Bauer which is very spacious and easily able to accommodate the development eco limit, which is in the farming land, 1.5km and 2km from the cape and 150m off the road on the northern side. Weir says he understood much of the coastal strip fairly close tot he cliffs could be subdivided. Vowells says this is correct. He says there is a coastal belt between the farming land and the development and this is where it can be misleading. He says it is not a cliff top development. He says the eco village would go on the farming land. He says it would enhance the area and be good to the environment.

He says everything they have done has really only further confused people. He says the SA Govt says they are injecting funds to initiate stormwater management programs but on the other hand the the head of the Stormwater Management Authority told a Parliamentary Committee that there was virtually no stormwater harvesting. He says he is concerned that the funds the Govt has contributed is being used for flood management not stormwater capture. He says this is why Family First MP Rob Brokenshire tried to address with a bill to make sure stormwater funds are spent on stormwater alone and all new developments have stormwater infrastructure included.

    Byner says last week they spoke to the SA Water Security Min [Karlene Maywald] about stormwater harvesting. He says they were discussing this after the CSIRO stated one of the recent rain bands in Adelaide was worth 10% of the city's water supply if it was captured. He says the Govt argued that because they had transfered land to local Govts for water capture that means they gave a direct $10M contribution toward stormwater harvesting. He says we also pay a levy for the NRM Board so that is also a SA Govt contribution to stormwater harvesting. Pitman says the Govt's allocation of land is basically for flood management not water capture. He says this means that local councils can then move in and put in some water recycling programs over the flood management components that were given out by the Land Management Corporation. He says to say the land was allocated for purely stormwater capture is not that accurate. He says the real issue is the need for an integrated stormwater recycling program right across Adelaide. He says this is something the local Govt sector is seeking. He says this is clearly a viable option. He says if we do not take up stormwater capture it will be overtaken by the more expensive desalination option. He says about 80% of the water that falls in city areas reaches storage since it falls on paved areas that do not absorb it. He says the NRM Board has about 20 objectives they have to achieve from controlling pest to erosion. He says they have a budget of $21M and about $1.1M goes towards stormwater recycling. He says this is a fairly small amount that ads just a little bit to local council programs. Byner says the SA Govt argues they are very supportive of stormwater capture. Pitman says in policy terms they are supportive but in financial terms it is a different question. [cont]

She says they have just done the whole of their street last Wednesday night including letterboxes, poles, fences. Byner says the Onkaparinga Council are spending nearly half a million dollars a year removing graffiti. He says this means ratepayers are paying rates virtually down the drain. He says it is a major social problem in SA and says we seem to have more graffiti here. He says he didn't see a lot of graffiti in Perth and Victoria.

    Weir says caravan parks on Yorke Peninsula are getting a facelift, with the local council tackling the issue of waste and recycling management. Rushbook says it's been a long term issue for the council, with a working party considering the options for over two years. He says they're making a generational change in their waste management practices and details what this will entail. He says one major initiative will be to close down their landfill sites, as well as introducing a rural collection service and a recycling service. Rushbook says upgrades to caravan parks on the peninsula are primarily focussed at the tourist accommodation market. He details where the upgrades will be taking place and what will be involved in the process.

    Abraham says it was a very interesting comment by Chris Pyne about this Gorge Road walkway campaign, it has been a campaign for some time by locals and the Campbelltown City Council. The Campbelltown City Council have been asking the State Govt to come up with some money, apparently Council has set aside money, and they want the State Govt to do the same. Abraham talks about a photo in today's Advertiser showing the safety barrier on the south side of Gorge Road, really it should be on the other side to protect somebody. He says there was a freak accident on the road on Saturday, a tyre came off a truck and killed a 38yo pedestrian. Paul Di Iulio explains what the Council wants to build along that stretch of road, a footbridge alongside the southern side of Gorge Road from King George Avenue to the edge of the cutting where the incident occurred on the weekend. Caller Rob says he's sad and disappointed that Chris Pyne said anything after he expressed his condolences, I don't think he should have made any political reference to what was going on up there at all. Di Iulio says the Campbelltown City Council has allocated $50,000 in its current budget towards the footbridge and through the blackspot funding program, Council is seeking $100,000 from the State Govt.

The Mayor of the Copper Coast Council, Paul Thomas, says much of the strong feedback he has had against the new supermarket has been buoyed by the existing retailer.

Ford talks about the coffee judging which is taking place at 3.30pm. She says she had the great fortune of being able to stumble upon the Danish bikes exhibition launched the other night. She says there should be far more support for bikes in Adelaide. Plumridge says Adelaide is an ideal place for bicycle riding. He talks about the Copenhagen style streets where separate bike lanes exist between the footpath and where the parked cars are. Plumridge says cars really dominate our whole street scene, Council hopes to gradually turn that around by simply making it more attractive to ride bikes in the city. He talks about the Council's three year bicycle action plan, it has got $3m to back it and it's going to create a network of bicycle lanes and it will also be made easier to park your bicycle safely. He says the Council's new plan is that in our U Park car parks, create an area for bicycle parking and some areas which have secured locked up parking and provide lockers. Plumridge says the City Council is working on a parklands trail which, when it's finished, will be a complete route around the parklands around the city so recreational cyclists will be happy.

She says she is ringing up as a Local Councillor and also as a concerned resident, she says what worries a lot of people about the code is that it will decide what new housing is allowed to look like and actually how much arrives in your street.

She says there is issue with the community consultations and the fact that Woolworths will feature in it. She says Foodland put in a bid of $3.1M and Leasecorp put in a bid of $2M for the project. She says Leasecorp put in another bid because they stated they would beat any tender by 5% but they put in a bid of $2.5M. She says Woolworths will not compete with local businesses unless they sell food so they will compete with Foodland. She says Sandra Kanck [SA Democrats] stated there was no feasibility study done for this development which is required under the Local Govt Act. She says the MP for Goyder [Steven Griffiths] stated the study might not be needed depending on the nature of the development.

He says Bob Song is the General Manager of Drake Food Markets and was instrumental in calling a public meeting last night. Song says he didn't actually call the meeting, the developer was quoted on a TV station last night saying Drake actually had whipped up this support. He says the meeting was called by a group of Wallaroo residents that are genuinely opposed and he was nothing more than an invited guest last night among 500 others. He says residents feel they weren't really listened to, an urban design framework had some consultation from the town but not enough took place. Weir says Mayor Paul Thomas insisted this morning that the process for the developer, Leasecorp, and the particular tenant they want to have in there in Woolies was completely above board.

He says the meeting was emotional since 500 people were all concerned about the future of their town. He says the local council and the community want to move forward since they are all supportive of a development but the community want to be involved in the discussion. He says when he was at the Yorke Peninsula Council he had respect for development on the Copper Coast. He says Mayor Paul Thomas has tried to speak to the local media but people want their questions answered. Parnell says this council is also involved in another issue where they have forced rate payers to pay money for waste water management scheme that SA Water says is not viable. He says the problem is the council makes everyone pay for a centralised wastewater scheme whether they dispose of their waste efficiently or not. He says that is what has annoyed people.

He says he was angry that local residents felt disempowered that they had not been included in the process of the development's approval by the local council.

He says locals were scared the big supermarkets would push out the small traders. Kanck says close to 3000 people have signed a petition opposing the development so the council should not take this lightly. He says the meeting last night drew attention to the conduct of the council and could make them take a second look at the situation. She says they are angry about how the tender process was done. She says they are concerned because another Woolworths is only 7kms away. She says they are not only worried the local Foodland will close down but the local hotels will also suffer since Woolworths will have its own bottle shop. She says they are worried once the competition is dead in the town Woolworths will then put the prices up. [cont]

    Byner says the Woolworths development at the Copper Coast is causing at lot of public angst. He says last night 500 people were at a public meeting about this. He says the public is negative about the Woolworths store opening at Wallaroo. He says the local council have put themselves into a corner and think anyone who questions this is a troublemaker. He says this shows that public interest and fairness were casualties in all this. He says Gail Gago [SA Local Govt Min] and John Hanlon have taken a big interest in this development, asking question about the process of approving it. He says Frank Pangallo on Today Tonight covered this story last night and the developer suggested the local Foodland is somehow influencing the opposition to the development. He says the local council wrote to him asking why he did not call them yet they cannot turn up to a meeting to face their rate payers. [cont]

    Weir says there has been a number of concerns about the way the development application for supermarkets, particularly in the township of Wallaroo, have happened recently. He asks what a strategic planning meeting last night in Wallaroo was about. Thomas says council have been looking at their strategic planning as part of a govt requirement to have a strategic plan through to 2020. He says it was a couple of years ago when doing the same process through to 2015 that the idea about a revitalisation of the main street in Wallaroo came about. Weir asks if the Leasecorp proposal for the large Woolworths supermarket is going to impact on the look and character of the main street of the town. Thomas says he believes it will enhance that [the main street]. He says all those who expressed an interest in that piece of land were well aware the Morton Bay Fig trees would have to remain, or he would be chained to them. Thomas talks about making the choice of Leasecorp for the development. He says this proposal stood out amongst the others.

    Two sleepy seaside towns in South Australia are pushing to keep a supermarket giant out of their patch. While the population might swell in both Wallaroo and Aldinga during the summer months, residents say they simply don't want a Woolworths and don't want to be bullied. Some of the ratepayers are also furious with how the local councils have been handling the proposals. Woolies are part of a Leasecorp development on the main street of Wallaroo, locals reckon the District Council of the Copper Coast have sold them down the river over the plan. One local Wallaroo resident says the townsfolk aren't against development, they just don't want Woolies in the town. Bob Song from Drakes says he can't work out why Woolies want to come to Wallaroo. Copper Coast Mayor, Paul Morris, says Council has been upfront and transparent during the tender process and sees nothing wrong with giving Leasecorp a second bite after the tender process had finished. Sandra Kanck from the Democrats says she believes that in this particular case, the Council failed to do a proper study of the impact on other retail outlets in the area. Steve Palyga says Leasecorp won both on price and product before the second chance happened.

    Byner says he received a letter from Rob Brokenshire this morning, saying the Minister for Water Security, Karlene Maywald, made a couple of incorrect assertions on the show yesterday. He says Brokenshire said one was that Maywald attacked him for allegedly cutting stormwater funding in Cabinet, whereas he was involved in such initiatives as a recycled water project in Noarlunga, an aqua for storage trial near Sellicks in the Noarlunga Basin, the Bolivar Recycled Water project, and a pipeline initiative to stop water evaporation and seepage loss. He says Brokenshire said the second was that Maywald said there are laws via which the Commonwealth can override the States, which is not correct, and the Authority does not have any legal teeth at this point, and will not have until all States have passed laws to give the Commonwealth full legal control. He says Brokenshire said the third was that Maywald be having words with the Treasurer rather than him on stormwater harvesting, and that the Treasurer did say stormwater harvesting had been written off as an option and that the Minister had been left 'high and dry'. Rob Brokenshire says stormwater contributions have been cut back by successive govts. Byner says Colin Pitman said there was $16 million missing, and the Minister said it was there in the land given to the Local Govts and setting up the NRM board. Brokenshire says SA Water needs their charter changed urgently, and that it is no good for the Minister or Govt trying to hoodwink communities. Brokenshire says the plan for the NSW and Fed Govts buying a cotton station to transform into a national park will not help much in the short term but in the longer term he commends them for doing it. He says people planting forestry in the headlands, which stops a lot of flow through the catchment. He says he has written to the PM, asking him to intervene to stop this.

    Byner says Water Minister, Karlene Maywald, yesterday said he did not hear Kevin Foley correctly when he ruled out stormwater harvesting. He says she also lectured him on how the State Govt put land under Local Govt control, setting up the NRM Board, for which a levy is paid, and then manage catchment, is tantamount to a $16 million taxpayer investment in stormwater harvesting. He says when he rallied this to Colin Pitman, who does the stormwater harvesting in Salisbury, he nearly choked on his morning tea. He says Maywald also said other things that were outrageous such as how the new board of seven commissioners set up by the Fed Govt could refer back to the Fed Minister any issue, and therefore they have the power. He says Adelaide University's John Williams has clearly stated the Fed Govt have powers under the Corporations Act to do whatever they want in the Murray-Darling Basin, but they chose not to invoke those powers. He says all the seven commissioner board can do is to refer back to Penny Wong. Mike Young says the Inquiry looks at the Lower Lakes, and that he told it that if the Lakes remain dry the entire system should be downsized. He says he suggested that an independent review was needed to look at downsizing. He says there are a lot of opportunities throughout the system involving looking at all the weirs and backwaters, and the lakes in Victoria and NSW, to look at where evaporative savings can be made. He says because the seven person commission will only consist of part time members it will be dependent upon the expertise of their staff. He says he recommended there should be an interim basin plan, which is what Nick Xenophon, the Wentworth Group, and others have been calling for. He says the original Malcolm Turnbull and Mike Rann plan was to have an independent authority. He says there is a 'governance failure' in Aust, because there was originally a Living Murray Program, then a National Water Initiative, then a new entitlement system in 2006, and there are still 'massive arguments'. He says he hopes Karlene Maywald is right and that the calibre of the people appointed to the authority will be such that people will be inspired by them and let them take over the authority they need. He says rather than going forward incrementally as has been the case until now, the Govt needs to move quickly by buying the needed by Christmas. He says when Coles Myer had a problem they bought $570 million worth of shares within a week. He says if the Govt offers better than market rate for the entitlements, they would get them. He says there is not enough money yet to solve the problem.

    A decision by a tribunal in Victoria to prevent building on six blocks of land on the Gippsland coast has sent a chill through local councils around the country. VCAT has overturned planning permission for the six blocks in part because of the threat of flooding from climate change. The ruling sank real estate prices in the area generally. Jill and John Allsop paid $110,000 two years ago for the block of old farmland which lies 1km from the water's edge. Late last year, the South Gippsland Shire Council voted to grant housing permits to the Allsops' and five neighbouring land owners but its approval was challenged in VCAT. Russell Jones, real estate agent, says the immediate impact of the decision was to drive some land prices down. The Victorian Government's Gippsland Coastal Ward was the authority that challenged the council decision in VCAT. Duncan Malcolm, Gippsland Coastal Board, says people should know the risk. Andrew Beatty, environmental lawyer, says the decision has turned up the heat on local councils. Jennifer Cunich, Property Council of Australia, Victoria, says planning tribunals will potentially use climate change as a reason to stop any development. In November 2007, environmentalists challenged the NSW Planning Minister's approval of a $150m development in Wollongong. The Property Council of Australia wants the Federal and State Governments to set clear guidelines and bring in expert panels to advise local councils. Heather Bligh, Mayor, South Gippsland Shire, says her council took into account predicted sea level rise and storm surge. Barbara Norman, Global Cities Institute, RMIT, argues a buffer zone should be overlaid on Australia's entire coastline. Melbourne's Monash Uni has developed software that can predict the impacts of severe weather events. Peter Wheeler, Environmental Science, Monash Uni, was commissioned by the Gippsland Coastal Board to look at the town of Lakes Entrance.

    Marathon Resources says it will work with the EPA and Primary Industries to find a new depot for 200kg of industrial waste from its uranium exploration site in the Flinders Ranges. The Flinders Ranges Council last night rejected Marathon's request to dump the waste at Hawker. The company's drilling license was suspended in Feb after it was caught dumping waste in calico bags in the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary. The company's managing director, Ian McRae, says it is waiting on PIRSA for the green light to start removing the waste from the site. McHugh says the that decision proves a proper uranium dump is needed for the state.

    Lush says the Country Health Taskforce after much public pressure announced that it would be visiting 43 regional health centres to discuss which services were needed as part of the SA Govt's new health plan. Blacker says that plan has now changed since the Taskforce is now preparing a discussion paper for the SA Premier on issues such as health planning, workforce issues and Indigenous health. He says the information gathering does not extend to visiting the 43 regional centres now. He says what they were asked to do was to assess all of the public submissions that came in before July 31st to prepare a brief for the Health Min [John Hill] in order pick out the issues of concern. He says the Min will then ask Country Health SA to draft a revised plan, taking their recommendations into account. He says once they have looked over the revised plan it will go to public consultation. He says the role of the Taskforce in this consultation is yet to be determined, so it is possible they will make some visits. He says they have had requests from about 10 hospital communities for a visit. He says he needs a direction from the Min before he can commit to doing visits. Firstbrook says this is the first she has heard of the Taskforce cancelling its visits. She says this is disappointing since they need to hear the concerns of the more remote areas. She says it would be difficult for the Taskforce to get a clear picture of country hospitals without visiting but they did submit a lot of documentation which they could draw from.

    Byner says cowboy builders and renovators are apparently to blame for the high number of faults reported in newer homes. He says the Archicentre has analysed about 20,00 pre-purchase house inspections in SA. He says illegal building work has been done on 40% of homes less than 10yrs home. Jovanovic says there are cases where people never put in an application for council approval. He says unlicensed people are also involved. Byner says unlicensed builders can not be paid for work. Jovanovic says houses should be professionally checked prior to purchase. Byner says HIA chief Brenton Gardner is surprised by the findings and believes unlicensed builders are rare in the industry. Jovanovic says Archicentre can inspect new houses at stages to make sure the construction is done properly.

    The mayor of Holdfast Bay Ken Rollond says the Govt should use barges to cart sand along Adelaide's beaches instead of building a pipeline. The $17m Govt project would pump sand from north to south to combat the effects of natural erosion. At the moment the sand is moved by trucks. Rollond says he's worried about the cost of the project, how the pipeline will look and the amount of energy that would be needed to run it.

    Byner clarifies what Karlene Maywald suggested that he got wrong before 11am. He talks about the press conference yesterday held by Kevin Foley, and the question was asked about the capture and storage of storm water in aquifers and the harvesting of rain. He says Foley's response was 'we've looked at this and discarded it for cost and practical reasons'. He says Maywald spoke about the notional value of land that's gone from SA Govt hands to Local Govt. He says the CSIRO have been saying for 24 months we're not capturing the water. Byner is amazed we have a Minister who says 'we're not going to do it' and the other says 'we are doing it you don't understand'.

    Continued Discussion with Maywald: Byner says the CSIRO spoke recently about how the recent rainfall could have served 10% of Adelaide's water needs but it went into the sea. He says this indicated we are not doing stormwater harvesting quick enough. He asks what targets have been set to ensure the city is harvesting more water than we currently are. Maywald says in the Water Proofing Adelaide document it says 160,000 MgL flows into the Gulf but in a dry year that can be as low as 50,000 MgL. She says the biggest challenge is finding the space to store large volumes of water. She says the number of harvesting projects they have underway will deliver about 21,000 MgL of water supplies. She says we have to be careful we do not mine the aquifers to the extent it ruins them. She says they are looking at the Port Rd Project with the council through the Stormwater Management Authority. She says the desal plant will also provide about 100 gigalitres. She say they are securing water supplies by preventing other activities for impacting upon available water. She says it is crucial we get catchment management right and that is why they pushed the Fed Govt to create an independent Murray authority. Byner says that authority does not have any power. Maywald says they are going to refer the powers to the Fed Govt so they will be able to override the states on water management so we have a Basin wide plan.

    Byner says Sen Mary Jo Fisher has reported that the Senate Committee of Inquiry into the Murray has taken some expert witness accounts who say Adelaide needs to be weened off the Murray ASAP and invest instead in stormwater harvesting. He says we have these statements yet the leader of the SA Govt [Kevin Foley] stated last night they will not do this after they have costed it. Maywald says that is not exactly what he said. Byner says that is what he said in the news. Maywald says they are investing in significant stormwater projects but this is not the magic bullet. She says it is an important part but it will not be the only source the city will need to rely on since it is rainfall dependent. She says they are also looking at desal, better catchment management, stormwater reuse and demand management. She says this was all spoken about in the report released by the Greens. She says they agree this needs to be addressed and that is what they are doing. Byner says he does not want to accept Govt statements and then have them contradicted by experts like Colin Pitman who talk about how they have not seen $15M in promised funding. Maywald says they provided to the Water Proofing the North Project $10.7M worth of land, gave $940,000 to the Adelaide Mt Lofty NRM Board, DECS has provided $1.55M, DPC has provided $350,000 and out of the stormwater funding there is $2.95M. Byner says we actually pay a levy for the NRM board ourselves. Maywald says it is all tax payer funds. She says they are not going to ween Adelaide off the Murray they are going to reduce the reliance on the Murray. She says we can continue to use the Murray but reduce our reliance on it during drought. Byner says in the SA Upper House Rob Brokenshire, the Greens and Coalition are going to push a bill to get more investment in stormwater harvesting. Byner says he gets annoyed when Salisbury Council and Tony Zappia have pioneered stormwater harvesting on their own and the SA Govt tries to take credit for something they have not had much to do with. Maywald says they have done it in partnership and they have done a great job and that is why they support them and other local Govt's who have the responsibility in relation to stormwater. She says in the Water Proofing Adelaide strategy they have a number of projects in places like Tea Tree Gully Golf Course, Regent Gardens, Northfield, Scotch College, Torrens Vally Sports Field and the Morphettville Racecourse. She says they are also working with the Onkaparinga Council in the Water Proofing the South Project. She says they are spending $270M to upgrade the Christies Beach Treatment Plant for this. [cont]

    Byner says Parliament will have sat for less than 300 hours, under six hours a sitting day, this year, by the time the current session finishes. He says Family First have put some figures together which indicate the average yearly sitting time since 2006 will have been 229 hours. He says that Pat Conlon, responding from the Govt's perspective, has said the Govt had 41 more days of parliamentary sittings in its last five years of Govt than the last five years of the Liberals. Manning says this issue always bobs up for minor parties and the Oppn to have a grizzle about. He says that there is a report by Greg Kelton in The Advertiser pointing out average sitting hours during the Brown-Olsen years were 299. Byner says what ought to be governing the hours is what issues of state need to be attended to, and what is the urgency. Manning says in this recent period the Govt has been quite with legislation, and as a consequence the hours have gone back somewhat. He says the Treasurer is now on the spot to justify, along with Karlene Maywald, the [water] assessment. He says it is not good enough to dismiss an idea because it hasn't come from your camp. Manning says this [water] is one of the hot issues that could see a big swing against the Govt. Byner says the CSIRO lamented about the couple of rain seasons we've had where 10% of usable water was flowing into the sea. Manning says that [Kevin] Foley says they have looked at it. He says [Rob] Brokenshire said he is going to put something through the parliament on this. He wonders if Brokenshire will consult with [Mark] Parnell from the Greens, putting in a bipartisan Green-Family First bill. Byner says Maywald has said that this stormwater harvesting is a local govt issue. Manning says it has been, to date, a local govt initiative, but ultimately when you get to securing the supply of water for Adelaide you are talking about a role for the Govt. [cont]

He says SA has a water crisis and is running out of water desperately. He is introducing a bill that will require by law that all new sub-divisions have storm water catchments and storage and recovery. He talks about the companion bill which will require the govt to allocate 10% of the Land Management Corporation sales revenue to go back to local govt partnerships for retrofitting storm water projects into existing sub-divisions. Byner doesn't think the govt will ever agree to this. Brokenshire says the govt need to realise the importance of this for SA's water future, not dismiss it like Kevin Foley did yesterday. He says if Bob Such, Kris Hanna, Rory McEwen and Karlene Maywald joined with the Liberal Party in the Lower House, the Govt would be embarrassed.

    Byner talks about a report from an environmental expert that states storm water harvesting is the best way to drought proof Adelaide, and SA Water would face competition on a larger scale if the harvesting of rain was to be undertaken. It's the threat to treasury returns that sour the SA Govt in doing anything to support this. He says the CSIRO has lamented the fact so much rain is going into the sea instead of being used to supply Adelaide. He discusses the lobby to the SA Govt in 1997 to reuse water at the Glenelg Waste Treatment Works by the West Torrens Council, and how SA Water refused to look at it any further. He says years later, funds were allocated by the council and the Fed Govt. He says Kevin Foley has dismissed any support for storm water harvesting ruling it out. He says no matter what the drought implications are for SA, the Govt's contribution is to raise charges and ensure SA Water retain a monopoly status in supplying water and will continue to pump River Murray water into catchments, and build the desalination plant. He says the Rann Govt has handed to the Oppn opportunity which they will grasp. (Continued)

    The Mayor of Holdfast Bay, Ken Rollond, has got some concerns with the pipeline that is being proposed for our metropolitan beaches to help with the sand erosion. State Govt spokesman, Rob Tucker, says back in 1997 a review of various methods was conducted and barging was one of them. He says barging basically has a number of problems in that you have to access sand from the beach and shallow waters, therefore you have to have a barge with sufficient draft to get in there. Tucker states the sand pumping pipeline system certainly makes the best use of energy and has the best means of getting the sand transported down the coast.

    McCarthy says the SA Govt, yesterday, announced the next stage in plans to build pipelines along our metropolitan coast to prevent sand erosion. He says that the pipeline will run across beaches in the Holdfast Bay area. Rollond says he thinks there is a good chance that will happen. He says he thinks the Govt has decided this is the best way of shifting the sand from the north back to the south. He says it continually shifts with weather and sea movement. Rollond comments on the need to ensure not much seaweed gets into the pumps. He says the cost of running this electricity is going to produce enormous amounts of greenhouse gases. He says he is sure a lot more sand is going to be lost through being washed out to sea as well. Rollond says he wonders whether it would have been better to have investigated using a barge to pick up the sand from the beach, then shifting it by that means. He says the use of trucks is ruining our roads. He says we [humans] are the cause of this massive loss of sand.

McCarthy says whenever people talk about tall buildings in Adelaide, the issue of the flight path is always raised. Councillor David Plumridge from the Adelaide City Council says the Adelaide city area is constrained by the belt of parklands; that's a very good thing but at the same time it presents a challenge on how the council can get more people and commercial activity into the city. One way is to go up. McCarthy talks about the old Santos building which is 31 storeys high. Plumridge says people need to think beyond the square and if buildings can be designed in a good cluster, it will be a great, exciting thing for the city. McCarthy says he spoke to John McArdle from Adelaide Airport about this issue yesterday. He said the flight path would be unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.

Interview with Nick Harford, Visy, who says that recycling contamination is a problem because it can ruin the materials. Harford says that the greenhouse emissions can be reduced through recycling because less energy is required to make and consume more materials, and less is being put into landfill. [cont]

    The Flinders Ranges Council says it is considering allowing Marathon resources to use the dump at Hawker to dump 200kgs of industrial waste from its Mt Gee uranium deposit. Flinders Mayor Max McHugh says the company made the request some weeks ago. He says the EPA and PIRSA have approved Marathon's proposal and the way in which it will test the waste for any radioactivity before it leaves the Mt Gee site. He says the council has sent a quote to the company for the use of the dump.

    Continuing the discussion about a report into water sustainability commissioned by the Greens. Williams says Byner is one of the few people who continues to remind the SA Govt that they have not picked up the ball on stormwater catchment and use. He says the water situation is likely to get worse this summer. He says the Govt has ignored the potential of stormwater. He confirms the Liberal Party will support the Greens in their call for stormwater harvesting. He says it would cost around $400M to harvest around half of Adelaide's water needs. He says the work by the CSIRO and the Salisbury Council shows it is possible. Caller Kym says the power use for a desalination plant will be more than the Pelican Point power station can produce. Caller Peter says stormwater harvesting will not help those further up the Murray. Byner says regional centres will have more water if Adelaide does not use it. Peter says according to the SA Water website there are cheaper sources of water, such as the Clarence River in NSW. [Cont.]

    The town with picturesque views could be yours for nothing, the highest valued block in Avoca is up for grabs for free. Country towns across SA are in a battle for people, and local councils are offering opportunities of a lifetime. Country towns around Aust are making an effort to attract new residents. Avoca in regional Victoria is offering a prime piece of real estate for free in a bid to bring new people to the area. Peak hour traffic, rising house prices and high interest rates in the city are attracting people to such areas. Bill Kuznicic, Town Planning expert, says people interested in a 'tree change' should do their homework including checking for employment, education and town planning regulations. People who want to win the block of land in Avoca must attend the Royal Melbourne Show and the Pyrenees Shire to be in the draw. Other towns to offer similar land packages to attract new residents include Jandowae (*) Qld and Bruce Rock WA. In Salisbury SA there's an offer of free land, you pay for the house, but if you sell within five years the council gets a cut of the sale price.

    Thomson mentions Wattle Range Council beginning the process of compulsory acquisition of land it needs for the increasingly controversial Penola Bypass Road Project. Thomson interviews Darren Rathburn, Wyno(*) director, about losing 2 and a half hectares of prime viticulture. He says they have put forward an alternative idea to run a bypass on upgrading existing roads that leaves the Riddoch highway from the north side of Coonawarra to the reenter the Riddoch highway south of Penola. He says it will take up less land than the current plan and will predominately be grazing land. He says the Riddoch highway has a dangerous mix of slow-moving tourist and vineyard traffic and high-speed heavy vehicle traffic. He says the current plan divides Coonawarra from Penola which will have a negative effect on tourism businesses. He says speaking with Adelaide-based road and civil engineers they have estimated their plan would cost about $35m altogether, and Council quotes say it could cost anywhere from $60m-$100m, without any evidence to support the claim.

She contacted the local Mitre 10 store and asked the manager if he could donate a bench to the Unley Council area to replace the existing one. They were happy to replace it, but the council said although it was a lovely gesture, it didn't meet with current requirements for street furniture [as if the old one does].

He states he was the Environment Minister that expanded the number of containers covered by the Container Deposit Legislation [CDL] scheme when in Govt. Evans says SA has about 150 litter fines issued each year compared to Victoria which issues 28,000 fines a year. he states there are officers all throughout Govt that can ask for your ID that aren't police, they include EPA officers and a whole range of people including Fisheries. Evans says there's an issue in his view in SA that litter fines are a flat fee of $315, that means a lot of officers won't issue fines and explain why. He argues there's nothing wrong with properly trained officers of KESAB, properly authorised, having the opportunity to issue litter fines.

    Continuing discussion: Ian Horne is disappointed in how Mayor Ken Rollond has reported this, because there's been enormous cooperation from hotels in Glenelg. He says they've entered into a voluntary lock out and two major hotels can trade until 3am, but have agreed to bring it back to 2am. He says they've also been participating with the police ensuring their premises are up to standard with appropriate security. He says this is about affluent baby boomers who were attracted to live at Glenelg not being tolerant of the next generation wanting to stay out longer. He says the hotels in the area with the police, would be happy to sit down with local govt, but it's them who are putting the barriers up. He says hotels have invested millions in infrastructure, Glenelg is an iconic location, like St Kilda in Melbourne, and the local Mayor wants to shut it at midnight. He says this can be resolved with parties sitting down and working through the issues like they do interstate. Doyle says it's people behaving badly that needs addressing.

    Bevan says there was an article by Chloe Ward in the 'Messenger' last week regarding Port Adelaide/Enfield Council. He says it said a new local bylaw requires people to get permits for activities such as busking, beach cricket, and charity collecting, at risk of a $500 fine. Gary Johanson says the article was incorrect and that such permits do not exist. He says the bylaw only applies in special circumstances. Bevan says Council's Corporate and City Services Director, Mal Jonas, has said prosecutions will be based upon common sense and that it would be in people's best interest to seek permission before engaging in activities. Johanson says it depends on the level of activities. He says permits would not be required for beach cricket matches. He says such things as walking a dog on the beach might be subject to the new bylaw at the discretion of a full council meeting, which would be published in advance, to address problems like the Solicitor General's dog that was eaten by another dog a few months ago. He says the bylaw might apply to situations where there are some people running businesses out of their car boot involving commercial sporting activities on council reserves.

    Weir says Port Pirie Council is planning on developing the town. He says the council is looking at a vision for the town and region's future at a meeting last week. Brock says they are looking at working with all regional councils in the Upper Spencer Gulf and South Flinders Ranges. He says they are looking at mining opportunities in the north and lifestyles of those from people in the east states and Adelaide. He says they are looking at promoting tourism in the region with the Tourism Authority and other councils to the east states and Adelaide. He says they also want to encourage the region as a place to retire or work in. He says the amount of activity in Port Pirie is impressive. Weir says actor Hugo Weaving has stated the Flinders Ranges are a special part of the world. Brock says their tourism and marketing promotional working party will look into opportunities for tourism. He says developers have been impressed by residential opportunities in Port Pirie and Crystal Brook. He says they also have the 'Ten By Ten Project' going on in Port Pirie which is a cooperation between Nyrstar, the SA Health Commission, EPA and the Port Pirie Council. He says the project seeks to get the lead levels in kids under the level of ten by 2010. He says when this happens is will be a turning point for Pirie. He says money, infrastructure and drainage are the issues to tackle when developing the region. He says they also want to make sure the SA Govt does not downgrade regional health, police and education services in the area.

    Weir says Sandra Kanck said last week she wanted the State Govt to look at the relationship between developers and councils, specifically relating to the Copper Coast development around Port Hughes. Dinning says they're yet to see the final plans for the Lease Corp shopping centre development in Wallaroo, but the mayor has made his position on saving the Moreton Bay Figs in the town very clear. He says the developer's well aware of the concerns. He says he doesn't think a second supermarket in the town would be redundant, because there's a lot of community support for the Foodland already there. Dinning says Woolworths believes there's enough turnover to make the development viable, with a nearly 3% population growth in the region. He says council has to undertake due diligence to both the Local Govt Act and national competition policy. He says they can't just exclude developers because they're not local. He says the development proposal submitted by Darkes, the existing supermarket in Wallaroo, was higher than Lease Corp's, while another was even higher. He says under Foodland's plan council would have to construct carparks, public toilets and a mall. He says council has no influence on who eventually leases the building, it's a decision for the owners. Dinning says council has an alternate(sic) transport strategy as part of its strategic plan. He cites work done in Moonta along these lines. They discuss a development application for the Wallaroo Community Sports Club, which has been referred to the Development Assessment Commission. Dinning explains why this has occurred. They discuss a petition opposing the Woolworths development. Dinning says he doesn't know what they hope to achieve.

Daly describes the plan as a step in the right direction. He says they'd like to see some action after so many plans. He says restoring the heritage grandstand would mean it could be used for many community events. He says the APPA would like to see the area kept natural, given the importance of open space so close to the city. He says they'd also like to see some sort of adventure play area water feature. They discuss the wetlands aspect of the council's plan. Daly says Harbison's comments comparing the space to Hyde Park or Central Park are a pipedream, but it's good to aim high. He says he'd like to see the Parklands put on the world heritage list. Daly says plantings in the area should be done in a way to provide an example of how to drought-proof areas.

He says the Rudd Govt will claim credit for its budget and setting conditions for the rate cut and the opposition will say the economy is so bad that any cut is necessary. He says global economic conditions are a big part of local developments. He says this will be the first rate cut in seven years. Wright says housing affordability in SA has caught up. He says former Liberal MP and major home builder Bob Day asked if people would rather a cut in their mortgage or a cut in rates. Wright says govt and councils do not always want to release too much land so as to have rates remaining high. He says Russia is lecturing Aust not to pull out of their uranium deal.

    Continuing water discussion. Manning comments on Karlene Maywald's concern that if you turn a lot of city water running off roads into our aquifers they could be polluted. He says that his understanding is you don't do it directly, you actually filter the road run-off through a series of wetlands. He says over time it is then directed as clean water into the aquifer. Manning says we need to have more invested by the SA Govt in that particular process along with the desalination. Byner says he has been told by Colin Pitman, who is the world expert on stormwater harvesting, that when you compare the cost of desalination with stormwater harvesting the cost is about 15% of what it would be to desalinate it. Manning says in the Cabinet room you will tend to be conservative and go for what is known. He says the ideas about wetlands merit attention by Govt, but he understands why the Govt are going down the desal path. Byner says he has had a lot to do with Pitman and Tony Zappia, who is now a Federal Member of Parliament for the seat of Makin. Manning comments on the wetlands developed by the Salisbury Council, saying he didn't realise how a series of wetlands linked up actually ends up feeding water into and topping up our aquifers.

    Compere asks how would one feel if Adelaide had an extra 60 gigalitres or so of water that didn't come directly from the Murray, after the SA Oppn announced storm water estimates from the CSIRO.
    Interview with Hamilton-Smith. He says Adelaide is a long way away from developing storm water infrastructure unless Mr Rann and Ms Maywald get moving aggressively, and calls on them to embrace the Oppn plan for thirteen sites along the west of the city which he claims will save close to 90 gigalitres of water. He says the Councils doing such projects already are being left largely to themselves and the SA Govt needs to 'get on with this', admits it won't be cheap being somewhere between $350-$400m which is one third the cost of a desal plant. Maywald says she thinks the $6b worth of investment in SA's water infrastructure is commitment, and there are $3.6b worth of projects on the books at the moment. She says you can talk about things or do things and the SA Govt is doing it. She says storm water is highly contaminated water when it runs off the city and needs to be treated. She agrees with the Oppn plans for the site and the Govt is already working with Councils on but says you cannot just put water down into an aquifer and into pipelines without ensuring the quality for the purpose it serves. She mentions the Liberals cutting funding into storm water when they were in Govt.

    Howard says he lives in Novar Gardens and walks past a stormwater drain everyday. He says he is amazed how much water flows down this drain and is wasted because it goes out to sea. Dittmar says he walks past one near the brewery on the Torrens and so much water is wasted since it just heads to the Henley Beach outlet. Howard says that water could be used to help keep the Parklands alive. Dittmar says the Salisbury Council has moved to store stormwater but this should not be a local council issue. Howard says it is definitely a SA Govt issue.

    Dittmar says SA Oppn Leader Martin Hamilton-Smith has been outspoken about how rainwater is wasted in Adelaide. He says he is sick and tired of seeing all the rain in Adelaide just rush straight out into the sea through the Torrens River. Doyle says she thinks people are jumping on the bandwagon because they have not complained about stormwater capture until now. She says only Salisbury Council has been doing anything about stormwater retention. She says the SA Liberals and the ALP Govt have all had the opportunity ten years ago to address this but have done nothing.

Keeley says Southern California has severe weather conditions with high winds and the options for fighting the fires are limited, however it is not as severe in Aust. He says fire events in California cannot be combated with aircraft due to the wind conditions. Keeley says reality big fire events are associated with long droughts.

He says they tend to neglect their own responsibilities when it comes to clearing the risk of roadside vegetation. He says Section 245 of the Local Govt precludes them from any liability that arises from any damage that roadside trees do to a person's private property, including physical injury.

    Interview with Stasinowsky who says the idea has been on the cards for years but never went ahead with councils fighting about it. He says though workloads across councils are increasing different councils have different workloads so it would be difficult to come up with a formula or guideline to decide how much a council member gets. He says the biggest problem lies that some people feel very uneasy in setting their own rates and when the rates are set ratepayers may think they may be filling their own nests.

Byner says Mayor John Trainer [West Torrens Council] stated that land tax is a wealth tax. He says the Taxation Dept has a much better way of knowing who is wealthy and who is not. Dominic says the SA Govt has gone out and done some crazy spending. He says they want to keep their triple A credit rating so instead they have decided to raise revenue through land tax. He says this all related to Govt expenditure along with the WorkCover and water crisis issues. Byner says local Govts think that if house values go up the resident is more wealthy.

    Byner says there is some good news when it comes to property valuations. He says Darley often talks to current SA Valuer-General Neil Bray about property values. Darley says the majority of SA properties that are valued for rating and taxing purposes would not have been looked at by a valuer for about 20 years. He says if a person is not happy with their valuation he can advise them on how to object. He says objectors can get a reduction in value from 5% to 15%. He says there are plenty of valuations in SA that have gone up by nearly 100%. He says they have had successes where people have had their valuations reduced by around $25,000. He says people can call his office on 8237 9114 to get advice. He says people have to object within the first 60 days of receiving their rate notice. He says they can fill out a form from the Valuer-General's office but it is very confusing, so that is why they have simplified the process. He says once the objection has been decided and if residents still are not happy they will take the matter up on their behalf. Byner asks why the SA Treasury still thinks that if a property goes up in value the owner has the capacity to pay increased taxes. Darley says this happens not only in SA but worldwide. He says the Land Tax Reform Assoc in their presentation to the Select Committee Inquiry in 2005 suggested alternatives for land tax. He says pensioners and young families may live in a high value areas but their ability to pay is not connected to the land value.

She says she went down to her local Mitre 20 and asked if they would give her a bench to donate to the council, and they said 'not a problem'.

Agius says while the community is supporting the Aboriginal call to halt the development the State Government has in the past allowed development where a burial site was, so he is not confident they will oppose this development. He says the State Govt uses the Heritage Act against Aboriginal people. Carbins talks about preservation of the tourism industry based on the natural coastline and mine environment. The Yorke Peninsula Council and the company involved declined to comment.

    Do you have a special love of the sea and coast? Weir says many of us do and so much so it's where most of us do live in Australia but have you got a special place in SA, a special bit of coast on a favourite beach for example? He says the last thing people want to do is see that change but sometimes, people have to look at progress and all of the people on councils have to have a pretty good look at how they develop responsibly while keeping things in balance. Rob Gregor from the Elliston District Council talks about the 'argy bargy' in the media about sections of the west coast, places like Streaky Bay, the are wanting to develop but have to do it very carefully and consult with the community. He discusses some of the issues about coastal development that are on the table in Elliston at the moment. Gregor says in March 2007, the EP Local Govt Association provided formal support to a Planning SA proposal which was to amend the format of each council's development plan to a common format called the VDP version.
