How One Rural Locality is Creating and Growing a Sustainable Community and Economy

Murray Bridge, a regional centre of some 22,000 people, is one of the few regional centres in South Australia experiencing population growth through natural increase and in migration. It is also one of the most disadvantaged areas in the state. With an outcomes focused development policy, the Rural City of Murray Bridge is achieving its vision of creating a thriving community.

“I believe that true economic development involves creating a sustainable community that is engaged as part of the process and involves not only business and regulators, but community services, education institutions and other stakeholders” said Michael Shillabeer, Economic Development Planner, Rural City of Murray Bridge.

Michael will be speaking at SEGRA 2019 about the programs and projects the Rural City of Murray has undertaken to build some innovative opportunities.
