Hills Voice: your Adelaide Hills

Last chance to have your say:
Draft Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan will help us focus on areas that need new or renewed attention to achieve great outcomes for our community.

With your input we've developed a bold plan to make the Adelaide Hills a place for everyone, while nurturing what makes the Hills an attractive place to live, work, study and play.

Our plan is ambitious and we want to work with our residents, businesses and communities to achieve the great outcomes that are possible through these strategies.

Your ideas have been heard, discussed and incorporated into the Draft Strategic Plan. Now it's time to let us know if we got it right.

Click here to have your say before 22 September.

Remember, it's #youradelhills!
