The South Australian Government is loosening height restriction rules in some areas to allow for taller buildings.

According to Adelaide Now, the changes on some sites in North Adelaide will allow unlimited development on Memorial Hospital, Helping Hand Aged Care, the Lutheran Church and some schools.

While the Adelaide City Council, has been pushing to retain a six-storey height limit, Planning Minister John Rau is allowing up to 14 storeys on the Women’s and Children’s Hospital land, while Calvary Hospital and Helping Hand Aged Care will be able to buy land and develop it anywhere within North Adelaide.
