Northern Adelaide Economic Plan

At the Northern Economic Leaders event held at Mawson Lakes last week, the Minister for Manufacturing and innovation, The Hon Kyam Maher, announced the development of an economic plan for northern Adelaide.

According to Minister Maher, “The Northern Economic Plan will provide a roadmap for job creation, up-skilling workers, and diversifying the economy in Adelaide’s north.”

The plan is expected to outline a range of short, medium and longer term initiatives including industry diversification, small business capability development, utilising university research to create new opportunities, urban regeneration, infrastructure and workforce development.

The plan will cover the local government areas of Playford, Port Adelaide and Salisbury and is expected to be completed by the middle of 2015.
