Workshops to discuss region's future

Workshops to discuss region's future

The Streaky Bay District Council is inviting community members to its strategic plan review workshops early next month.

The council will host three workshops across the district on March 3 and 4 at Haslam, Wirrulla and Streaky Bay.

The community workshops will be focusing on the future and the direction the council can take on a range of issues.

Community members are invited to attend to discuss issues relating to liveability in the region, key issues for individuals and communities, visions for communities, and the council's role in assisting to ensure those visions are worked towards and issued addressed.

The council will be hosting a workshop for residents at Haslam, Eba Anchorage and Perlubie on Tuesday, March 3 from 12.30pm to 2.30pm at Haslam's Doc Woods Shelter.

That will be followed by a workshop later that day for the Wirrulla and Poochera districts from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at the Wirrulla Sport and Recreational Complex.

A session for Streaky Bay, Sceale Bay and Piednippie residents will take place from 9am to 11am on Wednesday, March 4 at the Streaky Bay Institute Supper Room.

Light refreshments will be available at the workshops.

Streaky Bay District Council chief executive officer Karina Ewer said it was a good chance for the community to raise concerns with the council.

"The aim of the workshops is looking at what people are hoping for in their communities into the future," she said.

"It is about looking forward, about what it will be like for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

"We are hoping as many people as possible can come and engage with us face-to-face on whatever issues people want to speak about."

Ms Ewer said she expected topics such as water security, power supply, access to digital technology and coastal protection to be issues discussed, in addition to others specific to different communities.

For those unable to attend the forums, Ms Ewer said she could be contacted on 8626 1001 to discuss an issue.
