Don’t miss this opportunity to reinvigorate your regions. Now is the time to start finalising applications for the State Government’s first round of the Regional Growth Fund, which closes on 31 August.
The Marshall Liberal Government has today convened a working group with key industry stakeholders and support agencies to discuss the challenging seasonal conditions farmers and communities are experiencing in parts of South Australia.
The clean-up of abandoned aquaculture infrastructure at Anxious Bay near Elliston on the Eyre Peninsula is now complete and the area has been remediated – with more than 50 tonnes of netting alone removed.
The State Liberals are demanding the Weatherill Government clears the backlog of prescribed burns in South Australia, ensuring the Riverland and Mallee are well prepared before another sweltering summer arrives.
During a recent Parliamentary Budget and Finance Committee hearing, the Environment Department revealed that only 38 per cent of prescribed burns were undertaken in autumn 2017 with just 20 of 53 prescribed burns completed across the state.
State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall will engage with the local community and industry with a focus on jobs and the economy during a visit to the Riverland this month, including a public forum to be held at the Berri Town Hall.
Hosted by Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone, Mr Marshall has an extensive itinerary during the August 15 visit.
