Good health is everybody's business!
That's why the Barossa, Light, Gawler and Mallala Councils are asking for public feedback on the draft Regional Public Health and Wellbeing Plan.
The Plan provides a strategy for promoting health and wellbeing through council functions and partnerships with key community stakeholders. It outlines a vision to help the community live well through regional collaboration, community participation, planning, education and regulatory enforcement.
Barossa, Light, Gawler and Mallala Councils are working with RDA Barossa to ensure the Plan reflects community priorities. To ensure we've got it right, we are asking for your feedback on the Plan. Click here to navigate to Council's Website to view the consultation draft Part A Part B.
Consultation finishes close of business Friday 16th May 2014, so have your say now!
You can provide your comments via the online feedback form also on Council's website.
Hard copies of the Plan are also available at the Council Customer Service Centres.
Written submissions should be addressed to:

Most would be aware construction is currently taking place of four major Town Entrance Statements located on the side of State Roads near the town entrances. This project is being undertaken by members of the Kapunda & Light Tourism Association and funded by that Association's fundraising efforts along with contributions from many generous sponsors and is supported by Light Regional Council. It should also be noted a number of Kapunda High School Students, local tradesmen and other volunteers have made (and continue to make) a major contribution to this project. I am informed by project manager Chez Gue, all four structures along with the lighting and surrounds could be completed by the end of November this year.
I am sure most would agree, the stone wall, wrought iron arch and chimney structures are relevant and compliment "Map The Miner" located on southern entrance to Kapunda, Australia's oldest mining town and its mining history.
I would take this opportunity also to commend and sincerely thank all those involved in this amazing project which clearly demonstrates the spirit of the town is very much alive. If you agree with this it would be appreciated if you could spread this positive message among all your friends.....Mayor Bill
