More details is emerging on plans to develop the Adelaide Oval but the issue of car parking has not yet been resolved. Adelaide City Council is still refusing to hand over control of the park lands, but the Stadium Management Authority is convinced it won't be a show stopper. Anne Moran, Adelaide City Council, believes the council is the historic custodians of the park lands. Open space at Pinky Flat is currently used once or twice a year for car parking, but the Greens and Adelaide City Council worry that it will become once a week if the current plan goes ahead. Mark Parnell, Greens MP, thinks the park lands should not be thrashed for footy. The plans will be sent to around 20,000 members ahead of a vote in May, but there is already opposition from around 1000 members who have engaged the Premier's brother Chris Rann to handle their publicity. The Liberals maintain there is still too much spin and not enough detail.

Plans to create a super sized marine park off the west coast of SA are being criticised by local fishers who say it will kill their industry.

Changarathil talks to Greens MLC Mark Parnell about his bill to make the EPA more transparent. Changarathil says that the EPA hasn't disclosed information about groundwater contamination in the Edwardstown area. Parnell says that this isn't the first time that chemicals have been found in groundwater, and that most recently the chemicals came from the Hills Industries site. Parnell says that the EPA says there's a balance between disclosing useful information and causing people to panic about things that aren't a problem, but that he thinks the EPA should err on the side of disclosure. He wants to tighten up the rules, and that at the moment there is a public register, but that he wants the information to be online and free as it is in other states such as NSW. Parnell says that EPA has been claiming resource constraints since 1995, he thinks this is combined with a culture of non-disclosure. He says the EPA have made some changes, such as pollution monitoring data would be made available, but that this stuff still isn't routinely available. In the case of Newport Quays, Parnell says that people are asking why the EPA didn't say that they were advising against housing developments near heavy industry, and he would like this information more available. Changarathil asks if councils should be responsible for passing on information. Parnell says that councils aren't legally required to do this as the EPA is, but that other agencies such as SA Water also have an obligation to release information.

Richardson discusses the move by COAG to form a new body, the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator. He says it will govern the road transport industry and safety, speed limits, load limits and road access, and be in place by 2013. He says that according to Richard Hancock, National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, it could cut red tape and inconsistent regulations. Interview with George Konstandakos, National Transport Commission and Hancock about the move. Konstandakos discusses national laws, adding that there can be issues with administration that wash away benefits. He adds that they need one regulator to create consistency. Konstandakos says they would have a national database, to track activity, allowing them to prioritise funding to hot spots. He says the Commonwealth funding arrangements aren't used properly. Konstandakos says freight routes and hot spots change with time. Hancock confirms that local government will have control over the vehicles allowed on their roads, adding that the regulator would be able to support them with assessments and decision making. He says it would speed up the decision making process, and enable them to identify areas where access is restricted or prevented because of infrastructure conditions. Hancock discusses the suggestion of a user pays process, adding that they will be involved in a number of projects. He talks about how a user pays system could work, adding that the regulator will change overtime. Konstandakos suggests that they will move towards a user pays system.

James Hancock, ABC Regional Journalist summarises the events of the weeks. Hancock says Basin has caused issues for wine grape growers with those on the Barossa and Clare Valleys calling it their worst harvest. He says the CCW said some grapes are showing new signs of room but the Wine Grape Growers Association still has hope for the season. Hancock says a group are organising a feasibility study for the Convention Centre and have nominated five locations, with the Loxton Waikerie Council placing a request for the centre to be in their area. Mellett says Craig Knowles form the Murray Darling Basin Authority visited the area: Hancock says it was an informal meeting at Loxton and his visit was welcomed by irrigators. Hancock says Knowles said he learnt a lot from his visit and stressed the Basin Plan needs to consider local circumstances. Hancock says the Department of Environment and Natural Resources will form a taskforce to control the increase of the oriental weatherloach fish.

[cont] Interview with Bruce Francis, CEO, Franklin Harbour Council
Male indicates the continuous presence of water in local community discussions, and points to the current debate over the installation of a community waste water management scheme. He questions if those who have already installed aerobic schemes will be able to keep those. Francis explains the issue is when existing schemes can be connected to the common scheme, and advises the Council will soon go to a public meeting with the completion of the consultant's design. He advises there is no suggestion they would have to be removed but suspects there will be a 15 year period. Male refers to the issue of older people who have a septic tank, which has been an issue for council areas to the east of the Flinders Ranges, adding it is a significant cost for pensioners Francis confirms this is another issue to be resolved, saying there is generally a provision allowing these people the option of connecting to the scheme without connection fees until the property is sold. Male suggests some may be disappointed with the requirement to connect to this scheme as they believed to be doing the right thing by recycling their rain water, but Francis is unaware of this being an issue. He indicates this system could serve the community for the next 50 years without major expenditures and says the lack of a common effluent system is restricting the town's future development needs. He adds they also want to avoid any adverse impacts on the Harbour's 'important' agriculture industry. Francis acknowledges the limestone in the ground presents challenges in itself. Francis understands the ongoing cost is the equivalent of what a metropolitan ratepayer would pay for the SA Water sewer service. He advises the public meeting has not yet been scheduled as they still need to speak with consultants and the Local Government Association project managers. [cont]

Male comments many will participate in water activities over the Easter break. The Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure's Brian Hemming discusses the issues of speed and the cross over with areas used by kayaks and motorised vessels. Hemming comments the impact of vessel wash 'hits home' to those using self propelled craft as they have little opportunity to avoid this. He notes there is a growing number of people using kayaks, adding some use them for fishing. He advises others to be aware their vessel wash can affect their buoyancy and says boat users should be operating at four knots when near these other vessels. Hemming outlines the series of main messages he is putting out to educate people over the environment they are operating in. Hemming explains limits for the operation of jet skis generally apply along the metropolitan foreshore unless local councils have implemented other types of bans. He adds these users should also be mindful and operate at four knots, including when operating near swimmers. Male suggests this is something people seem to be ignoring and Hemming agrees. He says legislation being discussed will ensure the user will take some responsibility. Hemming advises Transport Safety officers will be active before and during Easter. He encourages listeners to visit the On Deck service on the Department's website. He advises how people can report any issues and highlights the consequences for operating dangerously.

Comperes say tonight they will discuss the intersection of Tapleys Hill and Africaine, and the King Street Bridge at Glenelg which is being re-vamped. One compere says structural redevelopment means traffic is being diverted from the bridge altogether. The introduce tonight's guests: Dr Duncan McFetridge, SA Shadow Minister and Paul Gelston, Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure. McFetridge says he wishes the Minister was here so they could have a frank discussion tonight. Gelston says the bridge over the Patawalonga is being replaced and explains Council have a contract to replace that bridge by Christmas 2011. He explains that the King Street Bridge is used by many people, and alternate routes include Africaine Road or West Beach Road, or they can turn right at Harbour Town. Gelston says the road closure only started a few weeks ago. The panel discuss the history of the bridges, with one noting that the Army installed a temporary bridge at one point. A panellist indicates that after a Crows' match 11,500 cars crossed the bridge one day. Bus routes have also changed because of the bridge closure. McFetridge says that an S-bend in Africaine is 'an accident waiting to happen' and explains a serious accident yesterday cost the Motor Accident Commission $900,000 which would have paid for two sets of traffic lights. Gelston says at a community meeting he outlined the four criteria which are considered before traffic lights are installed. Gelston suggests that at Africaine and Tapleys Hill Road they would get a higher level of safety if turns were banned totally, but notes this would create access issues. McFetridge says that in terms of strategic location traffic lights were installed on West Beach Road around the industrial development at a chain store, as well as dropping the speed limit. He says the intersection needs better control at night and argues short term solutions shouldn't be implemented for long term problems. A panellist says that Tapleys Hill Road is a thoroughfare which must continue flowing, and mentions North Terrace which has 17 sets of traffic lights between West Terrace and the Hospital which are coordinated to trams, cars and trucks. Gelston says they are modifying the timing of intersections north and south of Africaine Road. [cont]

[continued discussion of proposals for motorsport complexes at Gillman and Tailem Bend]
- Caller Reg says that he is bitterly disappointed with the Port Adelaide Mayor not talking to the people about the proposals. Reg says that his son worked at Clipsal in the weekend, and he wants to know what sort of people they want to attract to the events. Tony Thornton, CEO of the Australian National Drag Racing Association says that the tracks at Perth, Ipswich and Sydney all attract huge family crowds thanks to the limiting of alcohol. Gary Johanson, Mayor of Port Adelaide Enfield Council says that any form of sport or activity can attract hoon elements, but there are many passionate motorsport enthusiasts who don't have anywhere to race. Motorsport Minister Kevin Foley joins the show, he says that the Tailem Bend proposal would be much better than Gillman, and no Government money will be going into it. Foley says that his personal view is that Gillman would be the wrong place for a motorsport complex and he finds it odd that the Mayor would want to advocate a venue like this in a large populated area. Henschke points out that the Gillman site isn't populated, Foley says that the site is close to many houses. Foley says that if people want to have drag racing at the Adelaide International Raceway then they should and it's not up to him to tell them where to race. Henschke points out that the Government wants to tell the football people where to play. Johanson says that Foley is entitled to his opinion and he says that he could demonstrate the viability of a complex at Gillman. Johanson says that the Government has allowed 1.8km long ore trains go past the same houses that Foley is trying to stop having motorsport noise get to so obviously noise isn't an issue for them. Foley says that he would abstain from any vote in the Parliament on a complex at Gillman due to his views on the matter. Henschke asks about how Foley was reported to have grabbed Johanson at the V8s, dragged him away and started yelling at him. Foley says that he would never physically drag someone away. Henschke asks if Foley threatened to attack him under Parliamentary Privilege as is being reported. Foley says that he stated his strong opposition to the Gillman plan; that the Mayor and CEO put a half-page ad in the paper attacking him personally at ratepayers expense; and says that the Mayor has made defamatory comments about him.

Henschke discusses the end of the V8 Supercars and support for the idea of a dedicated motorsport complex. He says that they wanted to talk to Kevin Foley about a proposal for a complex at Tailem Bend, on the old Mitsubishi Test Track. He talks to Port Adelaide Enfield Council Mayor Gary Johanson about the other proposal for a complex at Gillman. Johanson says that as the Government is very keen to get AAMI stadium's football into the city, the new hospital in the city and keeping Clipsal in the city, the Tailem Bend track will probably not be viable. He says that the site is in a unique spot weather-wise and will often have heavy rains and strong winds. He says that there will need to be a huge amount of Government money spent on the site to make it viable, yet there is a private consortium which will build a complex at Gillman to no Government cost. Johanson says that the track at Tailem Bend won't draw many fans at all if built. They discuss the chances of the V8s moving to Gillman, Johanson says that consortium isn't trying to attract the Clipsal V8s or F1 to Gillman but it will be a good fall-back if these events couldn't be run in the city. Henschke discusses how Johanson got a 'severe talking to' from Kevin Foley at the Clipsal, Johanson says that many people were shocked that a senior member of Parliament and the Police Minister would threaten him and his community in the way which he did. Henschke talks to Tony Thornton, CEO of the Australian National Drag Racing Association, who says that he wants Adelaide people to be able to access drag racing in the same way in which the people of Perth can, with their complex. Thornton says that the Tailem Bend site is a 'fairly long drive' and if the complex was in Adelaide the it would draw more people. Thornton says that the Clipsal is one of the greatest motorsport events in the country and it attracts a huge amount of people. They discuss how Isobel Redmond has said that putting up a permanent stand needs to be rethought.

The expansion of a Riverland fruit packing business is expected to add $30m to the states GDP. Agri Exchange today got a boost worth more than $600,000 from the SA State Government. Gail Gago, Regional Development, says it will increase production and increase opportunity to new emerging markets such as China, Korea and Thailand. Meaning about 150 more season jobs. Richie Roberts, Agri Exchange, says the industry has certainly been doing it tough with the drought and pretty low prices. Gago is keen to keep spending the money on causes that will make a difference to the regions sustainability. Gago says she's keen to ensure part of the $20m can be used as leverage with the Federal funding.

(cont) Byner asks Atkinson if he is aware Labor is not doing well in the polls and Atkinson says 'yes'. Byner says he has an email from Richard Abbott and Atkinson informs he is a well known opposer of the Rann Government. Byner says Abbott makes the point that people in the outback are going to be charged for an NRM board levy that will raise $140,000. Atkinson asks if it is for the Outback Areas Trust and Byner says it is for the NRM to manage resources. Byner says there is a myriad of levies and Atkinson says the emergency services levy was introduced by the Liberal Government. Byner says there is also a water management plan for the Mt Lofty Ranges that will charge people for meters on dams, a license fee for a bore. Byner says John Darley called him saying the levy business 'has to stop' and Atkinson says he could vote against laws in the Upper House. Atkinson says he would be surprised of the Greens opposed the NRM levy: Byner says it is 'too cute' to argue this is this is to protect precious resources when it is building as bureaucracy more powerful than SAPOL. Atkinson says he is unaware of this particular levy. Atkinson says there are people in his electorate and in the Greens who advocate for a higher tax higher service government and notes 5aa listeners are not among these, but it must be acknowledged this sector exists. Byner says they are shutting the anti-poverty unit with Families SA as well as an attempt to shut a community centre. Atkinson says the Port Adelaide Enfield Council issued a report showing it would cost tens of millions to build it from scratch. Byner says the plan was to bulldoze it and return some services, not all. Atkinson says this area has changed form a poverty stricken area, to a middle class area so the question lies in whether those services set up in the 70s is needed. Byner says Monsignor Cappo's report is due out soon and Atkinson says this may surprise him. (cont)

Jones asks about the idea from the SA Government that they would charge for rainwater in dams, and Campana says that they are looking for more information before discussing that issue. Jones goes on to ask about regional subsidised housing for police and teachers. Campana says that initially the housing was for teachers but there seems to be a broader application, and that they're concerned about the amount of housing that will be available in the future. They're going to get information from the relevant Minister, and they're worried about the decision that the SA Government has made. Campana says that the marine park issue was similar, in that the LGA couldn't assist communities to make decisions without more information being made available by the state. Jones says that there seems to be an information flow problem between the SA Government and local government, and Campana says that the LGA is aware of this issue. She says the SA Government has established a forum, and that the new Minister Bernard Finnigan has negotiated with the LGA president and one one of the key issues is regional development.

Changarathil comments on how there have been a lot of political happenings in the last month, saying that the Treasurer has gone and now has the Motorsport Portfolio and the Defence Portfolio. Agius confirms that Jack Snelling will present the upcoming budget. Changarathil says there seems to be a lot of leadership issues at a state and Federal level, and Agius says there is a lot of talk at state level about Mike Rann's leadership. Agius discusses Rann reshuffling his front bench with a lot of conservative Labor members, which he says has been a move to solidify his leadership. Agius comments on his low approval rating and Changarathil says he is the most unpopular Premier in the country. Agius says the newly voted in Liberal leaders are still reasonably popular, and he says that Anna Bligh has given a strong leadership performance after the recent floods. He says it is a given that Kristina Keneally, NSW Premier will get hammered in the NSW Election but it is not because of her. He says the problem is just with Labor as they have been in power for so long. Agius says in SA it is not Labor that is the problem, it is Mike Rann. Agius says Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard have been shown to be less popular than their predecessors recently, Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull, so they have work to do to prove Gillard is a good Prime Minister and that Abbott is not an inconsistent leader. Agius comments on how Julia Gillard is on the left and Abbott is very conservative, but Gillard is controlled by the factions. Agius comments on the divide in the recent Federal Election, saying there is a lack of vision for Australia on both sides of politics. Changarathil comments on the relationship between Labor and the Greens, as well as Labor and Tony Windsor. Agius says Gillard did raise eyebrows when she was at Adelaide University on Wednesday night. He says her speech was 'pretty good' but she described the Greens as being on the 'extremes' of left win politics. Agius says there is a perception of Labor pandering to the Greens, with Abbott always saying that Bob Brown is Prime Minister. Agius says Brown is sensible, and he said Gillard has pressure on her to appear she was in control. Agius says if Labor is introducing a carbon tax they are not going to have to worry about the Greens vote, because the Greens will have to put it through. Changarathil discusses resistance to previous attempts to introduce a carbon tax, and Agius says the Greens can not block this kind of policy again. Agius says the budget should be an exciting thing. Agius discusses March being a big month for Adelaide, and he discusses Cabinet approving a deal to have Adelaide Oval. He says he thinks Council is backing this and it just needs to be voted on. He says this is a deal that will clear Cricket's debt, and Agius says this seems to be a good community development. He praises the idea of putting retail and residential around Football Park. He says it is good to see city based development going ahead.

Pantelis plays an interview with Patrick Conlon, SA Minister for Infrastructure, on plans for turning the River Torrens Precinct into a south bank style development.
Conlon says in the past the city has turned its back on the river. Conlon hopes the Intercontinental will open up as much as they can to the riverfront. Conlon hopes for great public domain. Conlon says Hindley Street will increase in value as the development opens up the west end of the city. Conlon says when the Liberals are opposing football at Adelaide Oval they are opposing doing the best that can be done. Conlon says the casino has $250m and there is $400m in the convention centre. Conlon says a development authority could be instituted. Conlon says the Festival Centre may work with a private sector partner for car parking. Conlon says very few cities have a river they have neglected as much as Adelaide. Conlon says private sector investment will be easily gained due to a high level of interest. Conlon says this will work best if the Adelaide City Council is involved and they are enthusiastic about this and the Oval. Conlon says the Convention Centre will still be upgraded if the SACA vote fails. Conlon pleads for the Liberals to look at what is being gotten out of football going there. Conlon says 75% is a tough vote and it will be easy to scare people. Conlon refuses to talk about possibilities should the vote not turn out in favour of the plan. Conlon says he hasn't seen some artwork at Greenhill Galleries depicting the Premier. Conlon says everyone has a different view of art. Conlon says the Adelaide City Council is very interested in this precinct.

Feldhoff says it is being reported today in ABC News that the Minister for Infrastructure Patrick Conlon announced that the masterplan contract has been awarded for the new Riverbank Precinct and it is going to a consortium led by Ashton Raggatt McDougall and including Taylor Cullity Lethlean and Aurecon(*). Feldhoff would like listener feedback on what they would like the design process to include. Iris Iwanicki, President of the SA Division of the Australian Planning Institute says it is great news and the firms that have been selected are very reputable. She says this is a great opportunity to develop the area and she suspects that the brief will include the ability for people to have events such as concerts or exhibitions. She says the original environment of the River Torrens was not 'all that fantastic' but over the years it has been beautified. Individual areas include the Adelaide Oval and the New Royal Adelaide. Nathan Paine from the Property Council of Australia says the council welcomes this announcement as a critical step in delivering the Riverbank Precinct that most South Australians want. He says the Government is showing that it is committed and the SA Government has integrated design commission and the Federal Government is supporting the integrated design strategy. Paine names some of the practical benefits and Feldhoff notes that the Adelaide Railway Station is in the area. Caller John says he hopes the area does not turn out like Melbourne's South Bank and wants land left for the runners. Caller Heather wants fewer buildings so it does not block the view of the river. Shadow Treasurer Iain Evans says it is disappointing from a South Australian business point of view that the consortium that has been awarded is Melbourne based. Iwanicki says she does not share these concerns because interstate consultants tend to revive and involve locals. An SMS Sender comments that it is money leaving the state. SMS Sender Richard says a plan for the riverbank is fantastic but asks if there will be room in the Victoria Square pigeon hole to store it. An SMS Sender says 'bring back the jetty from the last festival'.

He adds that they were interviewed by the ABC, and O'Brien wouldn't let him speak. Coro says he is the Chairman of the Coober Pedy Retail, Business and Tourism Association, and talks about the power they use. He adds that passing on the cost of the price increases will send people out of town, and stop tourists from turning up. Coro says it is outrageous.

Lensink comments that this is something that would have to be looked at in more detail but points out the Liberal party doesn't control parliament and would need the cooperation of other parties. Henschke asks what this would do to things like the Adelaide Hospital and Adelaide Oval developments if the SA Govt had to pay the council for trees that are removed, Lensink says it would encourage them to look at the values of trees in terms of habitat and heat island effects and give them the value they deserve.

Bevan says according to the Eastern Courier the Burnside Council has decided to hire Amanda Blair to sell interest in its budget, costing ratepayers about $15,000. Parkin says the hiring of Blair is not to 'sell the budget' but rather to 'create the budget'. He says it is part of the 'messy and inefficient process of democracy'. He says the overall budget for the publicity and public participation process is $15,000 and Blair gets a modest share of that. Parkin says they are required under the Local Govt Act to have a public participation process and to have it done independently by a well-known person demystifies the process and makes it a citizen event, encouraging people to come along. He says Burnside has historically had good participation in such processes. Abraham says that wasn't the view of the previous mayor with police at council meetings. Parkin acknowledges that people are likely to raise the issue of Chelsea Cinema. Abraham says Blair lives in the Unley Council area. He suggests Burnside consider the services of Peter Goers for next year. Parkin notes Goers lives in Norwood. Comperes and Parkin joke about Goers' interest in the Burnside shopping centre.

Male says flood damage from recent rains will cost $950,000 to fix. Wilson says they've had a fair bit of damage to their roads and infrastructure, and this is a big issue for small councils like themselves. Male says Linc Energy have been spending quite a bit of time in the region looking at the possibility of gasification projects. Wilson says they are keen to continue to assist Linc Energy, but notes that there has been some public concern in relation to the process that is used. Wilson says the process Linc Energy are using is different from the process used in Qld, and have been a very good company to deal with. Wilson says Linc are keen to explore oil further north and have also completed a feasibility study in relation to the economics of coal gasification and energy production. Wilson talks about environmental concerns, saying they have been happy with both the way Linc have communicated with Council and with Council's discussions with the SA Government who have experts through PIRSA and Environmental Protection.

Owers explains that the school is moving because it needs more space. He corrects the Abraham and Bevan, saying that the college is not a 'Bible training college'. Abraham agrees, saying they are a multidenominational Christian tertiary education centre. Owers says their small class sizes mean they need a more flexible space. Abraham says he thought the purchase of Goodwood Orphanage was a 'steal' for Tabor, and notes that it is heritage listed. Owers says some of the land around the building is owned by Tabor, while the rest belongs to Unley City Council. Owers says that future owners would not be able to knock down the building due to its heritage listing. Owers says they aren't in a hurry to leave the building because it takes a lot of planning to move 900 students.

Interview with Chris Russell, Senior Policy Advisor, Local Government Association about a plan to seize and destroy barking dogs, that aren't claimed from shelters. Russell agrees with Kevin [Kaeding, President, SA Residents and Ratepayers Association] that the move is being driven by issues with disruptive dogs. He suggests that it is a minority of owners doing the wrong thing, but adds that he isn't sure whether the LGA will support the proposals. Russell says they are only ideas that they have sent to councils. He adds that they would have to hold consultation before a decision was made, adding that some of the measures are harsh. Byner says there are court orders allowing unregistered dogs to be seized, and a doubling of fines. Russell says that a group of senior council officers who deal with the issues, and are listening to the complaints of neighbours, came up with suggestions. He says they are presenting a range of solutions to the problems. Russell suggests that councils struggle to deal with issues, including barking dogs. He discusses how the issues come about.

Baines claims affected councils have been given two weeks notice and no consultation. Baines explains that water prices will go up because they run energy hungry desalination plants.

Byner says that an Adelaide Uni undergraduate student has claimed that speed cameras are nothing but revenue raisers, as they aren't being used in black spots. He says that a report was prepared by the Uni for Liberal MP Ivan Venning, and it calls for greater police presence in roads and for Police to take over placement and management of speed cameras. He talks to Professor Clem Macintyre, who says that although the report is done by an undergraduate both sides of politics have been using these reports for a long time. Byner says that John Darley once brought in an undergraduate to look at the Government's own statistics on waste. Byner talks to Liberal Member Ivan Venning, who says that he is insulted by the government's criticism of the interns who prepared the report, as he has had a great record with them. Venning discusses a report prepared by an intern which led to his campaign on the position of the Deep-Sea Port. He says that the reports are valuable, and this one has highlighted that two of the top ten revenue raising locations are black spots. He says that the Government wants to raise an extra $44.8mil through fines. Byner talks to Minister Tom Kenyon, who says that the University interns are very useful and do good studies, but there are difference between full-blown research programs and a research paper prepared by an undergrad. Kenyon says that speed camera locations are set completely by the Police Commissioner, Byner says that the Parliamentary Budget system demands that money goes back to Treasury, which pressures SAPOL to raise revenue. Kenyon says that reducing speed on the roads will reduce death, and that when the speed limit was reduced to 50 there was a 20% reduction in crashes. Byner tells Kenyon that if he wants to reduce the road toll and speed then the best thing to do would be to advertise where speed cameras are. Byner says that you would expect speed cameras to be where the black spots are if the aim was to reduce fatalities, Kenyon says that they are trying to reduce speed across the board. Kenyon says that speed cameras and black spots shouldn't necessarily be placed together. He says that the number of times people are caught speeding influences behaviour, and if cameras are placed where people are speeding then there will be better outcomes. Venning says he is amazed at Kenyon's comments, and says that the introduction of drug testing was the biggest reducing factor of the road toll. Kenyon says that reductions in speed and increased vehicle safety have been the major factors, with the biggest single drop in the road toll ever coming from the compulsory wearing of seatbelts. Kenyon says that more cameras will be put on the road, Byner says that they are betting on people speeding for the budget and they will put up taxes if they can't raise the money. Kenyon says that they will save money in the health system with a reduction in crashes. Byner asks why people aren't told where cameras are, and says that SAPOL has said that people have been abusing or assaulting police camera operators, despite signs still being present in NSW, Vic and WA. Kenyon says that this is a question for the Police Minister and the Police Commissioner is the one in charge of the signs. Kenyon says that people should obey the law and not speed, and promises he will look at the issue of signage.

President of Dogs SA Brian Parker says that action needs to be more against owners than dogs, as dogs need provocation to bark. He says that people, the Council or the RSPCA may need to inform neighbours before they even know their dog has been creating a nuisance.

Henschke discusses barking dogs and suggestions of amendments to the Dog Control Act. He talks to Strategic Advisor for Policy and Communications with the LGA Chris Russell, who says that most dog owners do the right thing. Henschke says that court orders would allow unregistered dogs to be seized and destroyed if not collected, there would be a doubling of fines for breaches of control orders and the removal of barking dogs if owners are unavailable. Russell says that there have been a number of instances of people not dealing with their barking dogs and the powers that the Councils have to deal with the issue have been somewhat ineffective. He says that the proposed changes are being looked at seriously and Councils will be giving feedback on them. President of Dogs SA Brian Parker says that they support the Council in their quest to limit the number of nuisance dogs but there are better ways to control barking dogs then to destroy them, which need to be seriously looked at. Russell says that destruction of a dog would be a last resort and the sorts of measures that Parker has outlined are often looked at. He says that the reality is that there aren't bad dogs, just bad owners, and that the range of measures needs to be looked at.

Cheriton says that the recycling collection has support from the community, and that the cost of the recycling is comparable to dumping waste in landfills. A private company will be recycling the materials and on-selling them. Cheriton says that the program does not fit into an environmental or carbon friendly plan specifically.

John Hill, SA Minister for Health discusses the site of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. Hill says the hospital will be built to sustain itself in the event of an earthquake and notes that the current hospital is not capable of this. Bevan notes that one of the main ways of getting to the hospital is over a bridge that would need to be earthquake-proofed. Hill notes that this would apply to the existing hospital and every piece of infrastructure in the city. Bevan notes that this bridge is 'on the door step' of the hospital and says someone from Adelaide City Council is going to quiz the Government on this tonight. Hill says this issue will be dealt with through the planning process. Hill notes that services are being expanded at Flinders Medical Centre and Lyell McEwin and new capital is being put into every city hospital. Abraham asks how Hill feels about Mike Rann, SA Premier writing a $200,000 cheque for a 'hippie festival' Earth Station event in Belair National Park while services are being cut at Keith Hospital. Hill says bread and butter services for Keith Hospital haven't been cut and says the hospital is 'completely sustainable'. Hill says many people will have had a 'fantastic' time at WOMAD over the weekend and says this helps to grow SA's economy. He says Abraham can describe people whose views are different to his as 'hippies' in a 'snide way' but notes that they are citizens of SA who are helping grow the economy.

He mentions a story in The Advertiser which states that the Adelaide City Council will tonight raise concerns and request further detail be released before the new $1.7m RAH is formally approved by the Development Assessment Commissions (DAC). Bevan says councillors want confirmation that there will still be access to the hospital in the event of a disaster. Peter Smith, CEO, Adelaide City Council says the Council wants to ensure that road bridges near the hospital are up to earthquake standards. He says the Council is being asked to comment on the development to DAC and says it is a routine request. Bevan notes that the Council is also enquiring as to whether there will be a dedicated rail station. Abraham suggests that the new RAH is in a 'dog of a location'. Smith says Council has made comments to DAC around the adequacy of the location. Abraham asks if renewed revision of emergency management plans is due to the disasters in Christchurch and Japan. Smith says a disaster recovery plan has been in place in SA for years and is reviewed periodically. Bevan notes that the Opposition has long campaigned against the new RAH. Duncan McFetridge, SA Opposition Spokesman for Health says the current location would be isolated in the event of a disaster and notes that the AMA is concerned about this. McFetridge notes that there are many plans for offsite production which would cause a number of problems in the event of a disaster. Abraham notes that this offsite production could be helpful if the hospital was affected by a quake.

Ted discusses how the land used to be swamp and contaminated soil, Perry notes in the 70s dumping rubbish was acceptable and they thought this when building the Channel 7 building. Ted say the Parklands was contaminated as well as the Newmarket Hotel , and says the government 'couldn't give a stuff'. Ted suggests Perry shop at Arndale or Sefton Plaza instead of West Lakes and Perry says he has been shopping at Arndale adding it is reasonably priced.

The Riverland Vine Improvement Committee have been concerned about proposals for a waste dump on their boundary. They say their work could be seriously threatened by disease and vermin, if the waste dump goes ahead and they are worried their concerns are being ignored. Chairperson Lindsay Dowley, Chairman describes the site. He says the dump will service a large council area and its only amount of time before contaminated soil and the fruit fly reaches SA. Dowley says the potential increase in vermin could also pose a risk. Dowley says the council have 'totally ignored them' and it is up to them to prove the dump will not pose a risk. Despite over two years of planning, Jody Flavel, Chairman, Riverland Regional Waste Committee says the committee is still not ready to release the feasibility study on the site. A contract to buy the land has already been signed but Flavel says they will consult with the community before the dump is approved. Flavel says they did not believe the the site would be an issue at the time and was chosen so the two councils would not have to build transfer station. Flavel says they are seeking advice and will be guided by that and says the question of whether they can guarantee the site won't go ahead if their are disease concerns is a difficult one to answer.

Station Ph: 08 8343 4332Henschke reminds how they covered the issue of problems sourcing wood, but there is also a big increase in the amount of people wanting to use wood fires. Demi Brown, General Manager, Australian Home Heating Association explains thee has been an increase in people turning to wood as they want to heat their home in a cheaper and sustainable way. Brown says it certainly is cheaper than electricity and costs around $8 a day to heat your home. Brown says there has also been a slight interest in wood cooking stoves. Henschke says they put a call into the University of Tas who have done a lot of research on this issue but are having difficulties tracking the head researcher down. Henschke says they are finding concerns over the pollution from these and notes Launceston had to put in a buy back scheme and Mt Gambier is having issues with smoke pollution. Brown says all wood fires that are manufactured now have to adhere to strict conditions but some homeowners are not using them properly such as using wood that is not dry. She says they found that the units in Launceston where 30 years or over old. She says some converted to a heat pump but are now returning to wood fires. She says they are in partnership with the Environment Protection Authority talking to homeowners in Mt Gambier about how to use wood fires properly. She reminds how bushfires, burn offs and industry all contribute to air quality. Brown says they discourage people to use open fire places ad they are not efficient and in Qld they are banned. She adds they're are products to put into your open fire that turn it into a combustion unit.

Marner introduces Robert Coro, Managing Director, Opal Inn Accommodation Group who is set to talk about Cooper Pedy power schemes which may see business pay up to four times Adelaide Prices. Coro talks about how electricity is sourced in Cooper Pedy which is done through eight generators and talks about the average price for a business in Cooper Pedy currently. Coro says with the new rates to be set in Cooper Pedy, if you were in Adelaide you would pay as little as $14,000 and Cooper Pedy would be up to $39,000. Coro talks about how it will affect not just the business directly but the employment in the area. Marner then introduces Michael O'Brien, Energy Minister, SA to talk about the businesses in Cooper Pedy and the electricity increases. O'Brien says in business you must realise that the tax payers don't pay for all your business. O'Brien talks about how the SA tax payers are paying $5.5 million to their business and the SA Government are not prepared to increase this. O'Brien then says with increasing oil prices and increased mining activity there cannot be more tax payer subsidy towards the regional businesses. Marner asks if the oil and mining subsidies are more important. O'Brien says on the larger operators there is a cap as to whether you receive a subsidy for electricity. O'Brien then answers a question about the money put into metropolitan amenities such as the Adelaide Oval, that regional SA cannot use and whether this is fair. O'Brien then talks about the choices people make to have their businesses and residence in regional towns. Coro responds to the comments O'Brien has made and says the numbers O'Brien has produced is selective and compared to other states it is so much more expensive. O'Brien then suggests to Coro to look into the Commonwealth's scheme of renewable remote power generation. Marner then introduces Peter Davis, Former Mayor, Port Lincoln who has called in and says the public transport subsidy in Adelaide is around $250 million and says the Government surely have enough to subsidise power in Cooper Pedy and other regional areas to around $10 million. O'Brien says he doesn't believe it is becoming too expensive to live in the bush and they are currently trying to deal with the increasing price of oil.

Henschke talks to Opposition Spokesman on Urban Development and Planning David Ridgway and Health Minister John Hill, they discuss the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. Henschke says they also wanted to talk to Sustainability Minister Mike Rann, but he referred them to Hill. Ridgway says that he had a site visit with the site manager David Panter, who told him that the hospital would have a four-star rating. Ridgway says that the energy efficiency documents given to the Adelaide City Council say that the building will have a four-star rating under the Green Star Healthcare tool. He says that the Tool has four, five and six-star efficiency ratings and a five-star health project will be the same as a five-star office project. They discuss how new homes must comply with a five-star standard and the new hospital will only be a four-star standard. Hill says that a complex hospital can't be compared with a suburban home and they have said in the building specifications that it will be at least four-star rated by the time of opening under the BCA. He says that the new hospital will be 40% more energy efficient than the existing RAH, and will help to achieve the State goals of reducing carbon emissions. He discusses the expansion of the Lyell McEwin Hospital which won national environmental awards for design. Henschke points out that the SA Water building is a six-star rated building, Hill says that the Water building is an office building and easier to build than the Hospital. Henschke points out that the ABC building he is in was originally a hospital and they are using it as an office, Hill says that the complex medical tools like MRIs use much of the electricity which counts towards the star rating. Ridgway says that they should be building the most energy efficient building that can be built, so clearly a five or six star hospital should be built. He says that the healthcare rating tool is the same across sectors and can be compared to office buildings. Hill says that there are incentives for the project company to do better than building a four-star project, and he says that they are confident that the hospital will be energy efficient. He says that the Liberal Party would have kept the original RAH.

He notes that this was noted in the Murray Darling Basin Guide. He recalls attending a recent forum in Dubbo at which Danny O'Brien, CEO, National Irrigators Council, spoke along with reps from the National Farmers Federation. He accuses them of trying to protect the interests of inter-state irrigators. Peake says although he is an irrigator himself he is more interested in improving the environment. Peake says that Neil Martinson, Chair, RDA Murraylands and Riverland, noted at the forum that a minimum of 3000 giga litres was paramount. Peake says he does not accept that such a cut would adversely affect local communities.

[cont] Discussion of electricity price hikes in remote areas. Interview with Vince Duffy, Executive Director of Energy, Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure.
Duffy explains the cost of supplying power to remote communities has increased over time and the costs need to be recovered, making the tariff hikes necessary. Jones says businesses will be hit most by the tariffs. Duffy says the department has tried to find a balance between impact on small and large customers. Jones notes Steve Baines, Coober Pedy Mayor, has said his council will be subject to a 140% increase. Duffy reports this figure is not accurate and it will be more like 50-80%. He says ten other government-run electricity sites will be impacted, with a total of around 2,600 customers. Duffy explains the government pays the difference between tariff revenue and the cost of supplying the power, and says power will still be substantially subsidised up to a high number of kilowatt hours.

Marion City Council is planning to use them again. Fulcher confirms that test of the Council bores on Edwardstown Oval and the Forbes Primary School are clear of contaminates. She says they were confident these bores would be clear as the go into deep aquifers. Feldhoff wonders how the results came back so quickly, as the problem wasn't initially found for 18 months. She says earlier testing was done by Hills Industries and Colonial First State ,how that testing took place and how they deal with the raw data. Fulcher discusses how they are trying to keep the community informed over the issue. Today there has been a letterbox drop to 2200 local residents. Fulcher says it is still not clear the full nature and extent of the contamination in the area, so further testing bores will be drilled. She says Hill's has hired an independent auditor to assess the results. The EPA will be sending officers to houses in the area next week, to discuss the opportunity of indoor air testing within houses.

Greg Kelton, State Editor, Adelaide Advertiser, says Jack Snelling, SA Treasurer, has been handed a 'poison chalice', as SA will lose $52m in GST funds this year, plus the possibility of further reductions to help pay for Queensland floods. Kelton says Snelling will struggle to find more cuts on top of those Kevin Foley ordered two years ago. Kelton says the state is banking on a large sale from the Timber Harvesting Rights, but this may fall through as they are under a lot of pressure, costing $500m. Kelton says the Government may just have to push through as the state can not afford not to. Kelton says the SACA members need to agree to the new Adelaide Oval deal, then it needs to be approved by the Adelaide City Council, which is likely under new mayor Stephen Yarwood. Kelton says if the development doesn't go ahead, then Adelaide city centre will die.

Cigarette displays in shops will also be banned when the new laws come into effect.

Interview with SA Infrastructure Minister Patrick Conlon regarding the Adelaide Oval.
Conlon says it has been a long process to get to where they are today. He says he believes the outcome is terrific for SA. Conlon credits Ian McLachlan, Lee Wicker, John Olsen and all the people from Cricket and Football who were able to resolve differences for a good outcome. Blair says today a long term lease was guaranteed. She asks how the Government can do this when it is the Council's responsibility. Conlon says he met with the Council regarding this matter, and he says that he will not comment on the matter until he has spoken face to face with the full council. Conlon says they are seeking to give football and cricket the license to use the grounds for the relevant times, with legislation to set out rights. He says reception from the council has so far been extremely positive. Conlon says this will trigger a major development on the river front. Conlon says there will be some legislation on the matter. He thinks that there will not be a fight with the council. Conlon thinks everyone will get behind the proposal. Conlon says that he doesn't think the SACA members will vote against the proposal. He says there will be generations who will benefit from the proposed much better facility. Blair says that 450 carparks under the eastern stand have been proposed. Conlon says the more people who see the quality of the design, the more supporters it will have. He adds that functions could be held at the grandstand. Conlon thinks the issue of carparking will disappear quickly. Carol from Woodville asks via text why not leave the parklands alone, and provide shuttle service to the CBD every ten minutes either side of the game. Conlon says the Oval will be connected to all major public transport services in the state, including the central metropolitan rail station, the tram line and all buses. Conlon guarantees that they will spend as much money as they can get from the AFL.

The AFL has announced that it will assist with funding the redevelopment of Adelaide Oval. Football and cricket's governing bodies have officially backed the plan, however SACA members still need to vote on the issue in two months time. Both SACA and SANFL boards have formally agreed to a plan which would see cricket controlling the ground for just over 5 months and football controlling it for nearly 7 months. Funding and parking remain the only two unresolved issues. The AFL is believed to be pledging between $5m-$15m for the project. Patrick Conlon, SA Minister for Infrastructure, will meet with Adelaide City Council next week to discuss car parking.

Wilson explains why banning things altogether is ineffective and outlines various alternative measures that are more effective in lowering the amount of smoking. She notes that the Cancer Council is willing to work with the SA Govt to lower the incidences of people smoking. Wilson explains why smoking is not dealt with the same way smoking is in Australia, noting that smoking counts for more of the burden of disease in the country. She refers to guidelines from the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia about alcohol consumption. Wilson explains why alcohol and cigarettes are not made illegal like heroin and other illegal drugs. [cont]

Station Ph: 08 8303 5000
Zengerer says last week the SA Liberals called for a Parliamentary Inquiry as to whether Labor covered up groundwater contamination in Edwardstown and South Plympton. She says they say that the Labor handling of the situation adds to a long list of poorly handled incidents that put South Australians at risk. Zengerer says the Shadow MInister for Environment and Conservation Michelle Lensink, is saying that the inquiry must be broader. Zengerer talks to Lensink about her calls for the toxic contamination inquiry to be broadened. She says there has been a series of incidents and contamination exposures that have been dribbled out to the public, and she says that clearly the SA Government knew about incidents of contamination at certain sites long before this was made public. Lensink says the incidents are very serious and Pt Pirie looks like it is even more dangerous than first thought. She says there is discussion about whether the Pt Pirie contamination has been there so long that it is likely to have caused cancer. Zengerer says there are concerns about the role of the EPA, and she asks whether the EPA should have their role in notifying the public strengthened. Lensink says this needs to be looked into, and she says that the current process leads to an ad hoc approach with people's health being put at risk. Lensink says in Edwardstown some people received letters at home while other people only found out about this through the media. Zengerer asks Lensink for details about the airborne contamination in Port Pirie, asking if it is coming from smelters. Lensink says she is unsure what the source of the contamination is, saying it is groundwater and is potentially leeching as airborne contamination. Zengerer discusses claims Labor had known about toxic groundwater at Edwardstown but had failed to notify people, and Lensink says they are using the excuse that they do not want to alarm people. Lensink Zengerer asks if the EPA need Government permission to notify people about health risks, and Lensink says she is not sure how these provisions operate. Lensink says an audit needs to be done of all these incidents and the policy of the EPA regarding public notifications examined. Lensink says she would be surprised if the Legislative Council did not support this enquiry.

He says they are giving councils and general authorities the power to create smokefree zones or events such as the Big Day Out, or an exemption for Rundle Mall. Hill says they talk to the hotel, cafe and pub industry, and there is the aspiration to have outside areas smokefree.

Dolan says the EPA received information from the current owners of an old gas works site in December that there might be vapour moving from an old contaminated groundwater plume. He says the EPA tested the area across December and the new year and found there was potential for these vapours to move into houses. Dolan says the vapours are certainly toxic and prolonged exposure could be potentially damaging. He says the EPA confirmed this problem on 19 January 2011. Dolan says the EPA worked with the Dept of Health to assess the health risk and the urgency. Abraham says the ABC has been told that the EPA has been sitting on the issue, as it sat on the Edwardstown issue. He says Fulcher stated that the EPA had to look at the way it informs the public and perhaps thought she should 'get this one out of the bag as well'. Dolan says the former owner of the gas works site first flagged a possible contamination in 2004. He says a subsequent investigation in 2006 led to a groundwater exclusion zone in the area. Dolan says the Solomontown groundwater is very salty and nobody uses it. He says the EPA has found vapour in soil and says it is possible that people will have breathed this in when working in their garden. Dolan says it is not true to say people have been exposed for seven years because it is not known how long these materials have been under houses. Bevan suggests people should have informed people of the possible contamination in 2004. Dolan says that once the EPA was aware of the potential problem for houses, people were told. He adds that an exclusion zone was put on groundwater in Solomontown. Dolan says the EPA needs to notify and update and currently notifies as soon as there is believed to be a risk. Abraham says Paul Caica, SA Minister for Environment was hoping to join the conversation but is travelling and is out of phone range.

The comperes talk to Monsignor David Cappo, Social Inclusion Commissioner, about his concerns that the dry zones in Adelaide target Aboriginal people. Cappo says that the designated dry zones are a heavy handed way of dealing with the issue. One of the comperes draws attention to the amount of public drunkenness in Hindley St. while the dry zones are in the Park Lands where Aboriginal people congregate. Cappo agrees that the people on Hindley Street are mainly young white people. One of the comperes asks if Cappo would prefer the days where Victoria Square was full of drunk and threatening people. Cappo says that the issue shouldn't be so racial and there should be more services to help people. Caller Matt says that he sees a lot of bad behaviour by Aboriginal people in the city. Caller Henry says that there's a group of people at St Andrew's Hospital that are wandering drunkenly through cars. Cappo replies that people need to feel safe in the community, but the way that this is done doesn't need to be so heavy handed and that there is no wider social plan. Joyce Vandersman, a spokesperson for Inner City Homelessness Administrators Group says that the dry zone is making Adelaide unwelcoming and racist. She says that it's driving Aboriginal people away and that it is not dealing with the intoxication issue. Cappo says that he hopes the council can deal with this properly. Caller David says that his daughter has been harassed by young white drunk boys in groups.
