Here we go again knocking the Northern suburbs!!!!! I live north of Adelaide and my suburb is very nice thank you - so please dont come door knocking on my door, even though I'd be very pleasant and polite towards you, some of us are very nice.
So I am guessing the suburbs mentioned are in the North?
To be honest what does it matter as long as there is affordable property for people.
I remember when I did relocations in Melbourne I would never judge any suburb. I once took a family out, they were the loveliest family you could ever meet, they decided they wanted to view a house in a particular suburb, it's an area that I personally couldn't live in but we went to have a look and they loved the area and the house. They moved in and we were invited around a number of times and I have to say all the neighbours had been wonderful lending them furniture, inviting them around, even finding them both jobs, they are still there 6 years on. Yet another family I relocated moved in to a very affluent area in to a $1.8 million house and the neighbours were all stuck up and never spoke to them at all. They once needed a lift to the doctors urgently with their baby and the neighbour refused to get the car out because it had just been valeted

Around Elizabeth actually isn't that industrial. Holdens sure, but there are places like that all through Adelaide, North to South. You are much closer to farm land out there than most of the city. And you aren't any further from beaches than if you live in the hills or East adelaide.
I actually much prefer around Elizabeth for shopping etc. They seem to have much more variety of shops (speaking as someone who never goes into the city).
There are some very pretty areas, and it doesn't have the same rush hour traffic problems most of the city has (not as bad anywsy).
However, if you spend any time there it is obvious that there is a class difference to other parts of Adelaide. The large amounts of young people hanging outside Elizabeth shopping centre smoking, and with small children is noticeably more than say Marion. I've seen parents swearing at the top of their voices at small children, dodgy looking people shouting at people they don't know randomly.
To me it is comparible with Bolton where I lived before moving here. I moved here to get away from those sorts of people. My house in Bolton was a good stepping stone, and many people would be happy living there for life. I wasn't, and wouldn't want to live somewhere like that now.
But as the article says, housing is great value. For some people, with care of which street they are buying houses on, it would be great.
Not all northern suburbs need bunching in together. There are nice ones too. You can move out there and feel like you have country living, rather than city. You get FAR more house and land for your money. You are closer to crabbing beaches, the barossa etc.
And I wouldn't want to go door knocking anywhere either. ;-)
