Abstract: The present system for approval of development in Australia and especially in South Australia has often been unsuccessful for a number of reasons1. The crux of the matter can be summarised as ‘inadequate public consultation at a stage when it can influence events’. Too much money is spent and too many commitments are made regarding a development before a community consultation process begins. At this stage, because of money spent, the developer does not want to accept change, delay or defeat, and the community sensing their potential impotence fights loud and hard. Both sides are immediately locked into an adversarial situation and legal actions often result. This situation is bad for the developer (no development, no profit, no jobs) the State (no development, no jobs, no tax income, poor image) and for the environment movement (image as spoilers instead of environmental protectionists) (Smith, 1991a,b; Smith and Allen, 1991).
