Environment to benefit in budget spend

Thursday 24 June 2021

The budget has been top of mind in South Australia this week and the same is true for the City of Holdfast Bay, with the 2021-22 Annual Business Plan endorsed at Tuesday's council meeting.

The Annual Business Plan outlines Council’s priorities and program of works for the next 12 months, and allocates funding for key projects and services. A big focus for 2021-22 is the protection of our precious environment, with $300,000 allocated for the implementation of the three Gullies Masterplans.

Other environmental projects for the coming year include:

  • $1 million for stormwater management across Holdfast Bay.
  • $99,760 to continue our weekly FOGO green-bin collection trial.
  • $80,000 for an Urban Forest Tree Audit, with the intention of increasing our tree canopy across the city.

Also highlighted in the Annual Business Plan is:

  • Detailed design for the former Buffalo site at Glenelg: Following the recent community engagement, a final concept for the former Buffalo site will be developed and Council will work in partnership with traditional owners and the community to create a detailed design for this important heritage area.
  • $1.2m redevelopment at the Brighton Beachfront Holiday Park: The holiday park is not only a tourism drawcard, it is an income-generating enterprise which helps to keep council rates lower.
