What’s the plan?

Under the Northern Economic Plan, businesses and all levels of government are committed to working together on immediate projects to counter the job losses caused by the end of automotive manufacturing at the end of 2017, and to sustainably transform the region’s industrial base over the longer term.

The northern Adelaide region is a significant contributor to the South Australian economy, producing 16.5% of Gross State Product, and has been identified as the state’s major urban growth area for both population and jobs.

Economic conditions, including the low exchange rate and stable wage growth, make northern Adelaide an attractive location for business investment. The region is also well serviced by road, rail, air and port facilities, land availability, utilities and community infrastructure.

Residents are supported by strong and proud communities, accessible town centres and progressive local councils.
