I am concerned about Labor's plans for the Glenside redevelopment and the impact it may have on our local area. While I recognise the urgent need for new housing supply in South Australia, unrestrained high rise urban infill in established suburbs puts significant pressure on existing infrastructure which is already at capacity including schools, open space, tree canopy, parking, water and sewerage, and will further add to the traffic congestion in our area.

Complete my survey here to share your thoughts on the proposal.

Campaign Status

SA Labor have announced the initiation of a new "Code Amendment" that will seriously impact our local area by increasing the maximum heights of buildings. For Glenside, it would see 20 storey towers being built, compared to the proposed 8 storeys residents had been told.

I wrote to the Minister about my concerns and shared this with my electorate, inviting anyone concerned to a public meeting on Saturday 4 May at the Glenside Park Playground. I also encourage anyone who would like to share their thoughts to complete my survey on the issue.

I also spoke in Parliament sharing my particular concerns.


Campaign Timeline

September 2023

On 28 August, the chair of the State Planning Commission told the Environment, Resources and Development Committee, "Height is no issue, so you could build 30 storeys in Glenside and not upset anybody." A week later in question time, I raised my concerns about this comment with the Urban Development and Planning Minister, Nick Champion, who proceeded to label me and my constituents as "nimbys".

November 2023

I shared the comments with the local community around Glenside and urged those concerned to fill in my survey where they could make a submission to the Greater Adelaide Regional Plan Discussion Paper consultation. In total, I received 195 submissions to this survey which I forwarded to the Committee.
