Gawler is the major regional centre for the wider Barossa and Lower Mid North Region of South Australia. We are the fastest growing Local Government area in South Australia. Growing at a rate of nearly 2% per annum, which is twice the State average, many families and newly retired people are choosing to settle in our town which has a regional catchment of 110,000 people and growing.
Gawler is a designated growth area identified by the South Australian Government and this is likely to continue.
Town of Gawler's vision for the community is a 'liveable, cohesive, active, innovative and sustainable community'. To achieve this vision, Council has identified critical infrastructure and other initiatives that will build a strong, regional economy.
I therefore commend to you the iconic projects in this prospectus that will create economic prosperity for Gawler, the region and for South Australia.
These strategic projects deliver on regional, state and national social and economic policies that focus on creating jobs, a skilled workforce and strong community. Leveraging of existing investments, these projects will realise more than $670 million of economic benefits and create hundreds of jobs just in the construction phase alone.
As a strong local government team, we want to talk to you about how we can make this happen.
This is our goal … investment and jobs, it’s that simple.
