Welcome to the online consultation for the Southland Regional Development Agency (SRDA) proposal. The Southland Mayoral Forum invites your feedback.

The Mayoral Forum represents Southland's four councils: Environment Southland, Invercargill City Council, Gore District Council and Southland District Council.


The proposal seeks to combine the work and goals of the Southland Regional Development Strategy & Action Plan, and the regional and economic development activities of Venture Southland into an agency with a broader community base and wider focus.

The aim is to have one agency that would be a champion for and leader of regional development activity across Southland.

Please take the time to read through the consultation document, which outlines the aims, the preferred proposal and the other options that were considered, and provide us with your feedback and views.
