Have your say on Southland development agency

The Southland Mayoral Forum is inviting submissions on its proposal for a Southland Regional Development Agency (SRDA).

The Mayoral Forum represents Southland’s four councils: Environment Southland, Invercargill City Council, Gore District Council and Southland District Council.

The SRDA proposal 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.

The aim is to have one agency that would be a champion for and leader of regional development activity across Southland. The consultation document (link follows) outlines the aims, the preferred proposal and the other options that were considered.
