Southland Regional Development Agency Proposal

2/10/2017 4:00 a.m.

In July 2017, the Southland Mayoral Forum (representing Southland's four councils: Environment Southland, Invercargill City Council, Gore District Council and Southland District Council) undertook a public consultation on how regional development should be managed in Southland.

They proposed the creation of a Southland Regional Development Agency (SRDA) which seeks to combine the work and goals of the Southland Regional Development Strategy & Action Plan, and the regional and economic development activities of Venture Southland into one agency with a broader community base and wider focus.

A total of 107 submissions were received, which are available for download below. An officers' report has also been produced, which contains a summary of the submissions and key findings. A hearing has been held, and a final report with recommendations will be provided to the four councils for ratification.
