It’s not rocket science, and I might add that I was the dunce at my school, placed in the corner as an example to the rest of the class. – Peter Murphy
Excellent article on the need to repopulate the city and near surrounds while maintaining open space for recreation and gatherings of people. Time for Adelaide and suburbs to increase the population density per square kilometre to create a vibrant city. – Michael O’Neil
