The Northern and Yorke Regional Forum will be held on Friday 31 March at the Barossa Weintal in Tanunda, and registrations are now open!
The forum brings together regional leaders, policy makers, researchers, industry and community to discuss topical regional issues and assist the region in actively supporting and keeping their members, region, community and governments informed. This year’s forum will focus on Land Use and its impact on the region’s growth and development. It will provide a platform for delegates to exchange ideas, discuss strategies and explore opportunities for growth and development.
Rolf Binder, Chairman of Regional Development Australia Barossa Light Gawler Adelaide Plains, says, “We are excited to see the Annual Northern and Yorke Regional Forum come to the Barossa Region for the first time. The reason for bringing the forum to our region was due to the significant residential growth occurring and our partnership in the Northern and Yorke Alliance.”
Mayor Rodney Reid, Chairman of the Regional Local Govt Association (Legatus Group), says, “We have a great line up of 16 speakers confirmed to date including Craig Holden, Chair State Planning Commission, Amanda-Price McGregor, Managing Director Green Light Planning Solutions, Rachel Brdanovic, Tandem Energy, Stephen Smith, Policy Advisor Local Government Association SA and Michael Hickinbotham, Managing Director of the Hickinbotham Group.”
Bill Vandepeer, Chairman of RDA Yorke Mid North, says, “The forum will ensure that we keep the land use requirements as a key focus. The region is experiencing significant growth and is well positioned to support a wide range of substantial developments. We have a diverse economy, coupled with existing mature industries including manufacturing, mineral smelting, commercial fishing, agriculture, viticulture, tourism and food, which makes us a leading region for the attraction of investment.”
Geoff White, the Presiding Member of Northern and Yorke Landscape Board, says, “This forum touches on many of the priorities that the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board have identified as being crucial to maintaining a resilient and productive landscape. The forum also highlights the importance of collaboration and planning considerations on issues ranging from water and biodiversity management to climate change.”
