New Resident Kit launched

Mayor of Southern Downs Regional Council (SDRC), Councillor Peter Blundell launched Council’s New Resident Kit at Council’s information stand at the Allora Show.

Following requests from new arrivals and businesses in the region, Council has developed a “New Resident Kit” that will be provided to people making the Southern Downs their home. The Kit comprises two distinct parts.

An information pack will showcase the important facts and stories, the “what, where and when” of the region, including local activities and services to the new residents, and information regarding schools, medical and other government services, recreation, sports fields, bushfires and bushfire preparedness and emergency contacts.

Also included will be redeemable vouchers with which new residents can receive discounts for products and services from a variety of businesses and service providers in the Southern Downs.
