Event Management Policy

Event Management Policy

Where facilities are consecutively booked on weekends and after hours, event organisers will be responsible for leaving them clean and tidy, with the option to request additional waste bins. “We know local events deliver a range of benefits, building community spirit and participation and attracting visitors to our region, and we don’t take this for granted,” he said. This Policy outlines our genuine commitment to working with event organisers to get the best outcomes for their event without causing damage to our premier sporting venues.” Community members can view the draft policy online or in hard copy at branch offices and provide feedback online at ourbetterbarossa.com.au, via email to [email protected] or in writing.

Rural Road Safety Month

Rural Road Safety Month

“We will continue to see a significant and unnecessary loss of life on regional roads until we make a collective effort to shift this mentality so that safety is front of mind for all road users.” The ARSF research has also highlighted the disparity in attitudes and behaviours between rural and city drivers. “Acknowledging that everyday road users have a personal responsibility is the first step and it’s our hope that Rural Road Safety Month will encourage drivers to choose road safety and turn this sentiment into real action.” Suncorp’s Head of Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance Matthew Kayrooz said the month of action was a timely reminder for all drivers to take an extra moment to avoid disaster on regional roads. Safe roads are critical to keeping our regional and rural communities great places to live, visit and work – so I encourage each of us to take a personal pledge to drive safely not just throughout the month but well after the campaign finishes,” Mr Kayrooz said.

Keeping Barossa's Streets Green

Keeping Barossa's Streets Green

“This project ensures we take a holistic approach to our street trees and the role they play in providing amenity, shade and habitat, so our streets are places that are inviting and pleasant” says Mayor Bim Lange. The three year plan to audit, maintain, remove and replace trees is now well underway with such works complete on Memorial Avenue, Nuriootpa, Old Kapunda Road, Nuriootpa, Greenock Road, Nuriootpa and Barossa Valley Way from Nuriootpa to Tanunda. Through the audit process, the trees which have been flagged for removal, and subsequent replacement, are those which specialist contractor Treevolution identified as having no long term future due to reaching the end of their lifespan, and therefore posing an unacceptable level of risk.
