Mount Gambier is the second largest city in South Australia and the centre of the Limestone Coast region, with its own unique character, assets and geographical challenges.
With a population of 29,600 and catchment of 85,000, the city deserves its own strategic direction and State Government focus, independent of other South Australian regions.
Future Mount Gambier was developed in consultation with local experts, who understand the challenges and opportunities specific to their sector and know what effective action in required, now and into the future, to create positive outcomes.
Any plan must be able to adapt to current events and reflect our changing lifestyles.
As the Independent Member for the seat of Mount Gambier, I speak to people every day, from parents to officials to industry experts, about their vision for our city and ways they believe our region can grow and expand.
Every idea, no matter how big or small, has merit.
As an advocate for Mount Gambier and its residents, my role is to work with our State Government to ensure our city has a collective voice at a state level.
This plan is designed to be a working document, a blueprint for the State Government to understand our unique challenges, encouraging collaboration and future planning with us, to ensure our city has every opportunity to grow and prosper.
