Port Augusta continues to position itself to be the leader in renewable energy in South Australia and Australia with success shown through the multiple renewable projects that are already generating power, with many more to create or store energy in the planning approval or development phase. With an increase in major projects, Port Augusta continues to prepare for the influx of Contractors and their families whilst the development occurs, particularly in accommodation and local procurement opportunities.
Council will continue to build relationships with the Local Government Association and State and Commonwealth Governments to ensure the appropriate level of commitment, to promote our history and provide the facilities our residents and tourists expect. Port Augusta City Council will also continue to review its operations to ensure they are functioning in an economical and sustainable way. With strong leadership and good governance the Council will maintain a focus on achieving the Vision and Goals identified within the Strategic Directions 2019-2029 Plan. This is a great time for Port Augusta and the Upper Spencer Gulf to expose to all that we have to offer, and our capability as a Community, City and Region. We will need to be positive, proactive and prepared for the change ahead.
