Hello and Welcome to My Website!

I decided to set up this site as a communication opportunity for myself and most importantly – you – the people of Frome. I hope you enjoy exploring this site as much as my staff and I did when putting it together. I appreciate feedback, and would love to hear from you as to the information you would like made available on the site.

The Frome Electorate and Regional South Australia is very important to me. Engaging with the community is essential to ensure that I have a clear understanding of issues faced by the people of Frome.

New guidelines for managing roadside vegetation
The new guidelines aim to provide local councils and DPTI with greater capacity to clear roadside vegetation and provide the pathway for removing native vegetation that poses a safety concern. They also outline when approval is required by the Native Vegetation Council and how it should be obtained.

South Australian Tourism Plan 2030
With 2020 fast approaching, the SATC has begun planning for the next South Australian Tourism Plan. This will set the vision for the South Australian visitor economy from now until 2030. The new plan will be developed with extensive industry consultation, and aims to identify the areas that will genuinely make a difference and maximise the effectiveness of our collective efforts. The Interim Guidelines will allow greater capacity for clearance of native vegetation regrowth on roadsides up to 20 years of age (previously 5 years). This will allow local councils and DPTI to undertake the majority of their roadside vegetation maintenance without requiring any approval. Where an approval is required, less information is needed.
