Port Adelaide residents may be moved as Government admits key ministers knew of toxic report | Adelaide Now
What annoys me about this is all the concern about the 'new development' when there are hundreds of much older homes - many of which are social housing - on the opposite side of the road from ABC, and the Soda Works is literally 100 yards from some Housing Trust homes that have been there for tens of years. Why are they worrying about the poor little yuppies buying overpriced 1 bed apartments at Newport Quays and not mentioning the kids that are already playing a few hundred yards from such a hazard. I have little sympathy for those buying homes there recently as there has been so much publicity about the dust from ABC - like the folk who buy under a known flight path to an airport that has been there for years, they should have known better. Some people had little choice and were in no position to find out the risks beforehand. I suppose the prospect of the government possibly having to buy the apartments back is more interesting as 'news' than the damage already done to a couple of generations of local people.
