Adelaide residents form action group against vertical aged care and village developments

Published on

As we reported here, Life Care is planning a $250M revamp of its three aged care facilities in Joslin, Norwood and Glen Osmond, including two buildings seven and nine storeys high.

Adelaide Now is reporting residents have formed a group called Play Fair Life Care to protest against the developments’ possible height and scale.

They are also unhappy about the new State Govt’s provisions for developments valued at over $20M that have meant the project bypasses the local council and go straight to the Planning Minister John Rau for assessment.

However a spokesperson for Mr Rau said the new assessment process was appropriate to meet the increasing demand in SA for retirement and aged care living options.

The Not For Profit has also been consulting with the local community ahead of submitting its final plans to the government.
