Barunga West Council has started developing a new Strategic Management Plan 2020-2030. This Plan will outline the Council’s aim for the future economic, social and environmental development of the whole Barunga West district and community in addition to Council's objectives and strategies to achieve this. We Need Your Input! As a valued member of the Barunga West community the Council values your participation in this process and is providing the opportunity for input via a community survey. The survey will be open until 23 August 2019 and may be completed on-line or in hard copy form. The survey should take 10 minutes to complete. This survey is confidential and you are not required to provide any personal details. However we are seeking some general information about you such as the town or area where you live to help us better understand the needs of the diverse groups we have within our community. A report will be prepared outlining the survey results which will be made available along with a draft for public consultation of the Strategic Management Plan 2020-2030.

Update on Port Broughton Coastal Protection Issues

25 July 2019
Council has applied for funding from the Coast Protection Board in order to complete the next stage of upgrading the protection of properties along the foreshore at Port Broughton, namely detailed design drawings for an appropriately sized seawall. This work builds upon the Port Broughton Coastal Hazard Adaption Plan completed in 2018. We hope soon to hear whether we are successful in receiving this grant funding. Council is also waiting to apply for funding under the newly announced Regional SA Coastline grant program that will provide $4 million in funding over the next 4 years for coastal councils to help repair, restore and sustain the state’s regional coastlines. Council would like to apply for funding to address sand erosion issues along the Port Broughton and Fisherman Bay foreshore. If there are any queries concerning coastal foreshore conditions, please contact Council.
