The Councils of Barunga West, Copper Coast and Yorke Peninsula are collaborating on the creation of a regional Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.
The purpose of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan is to ensure people with disability are included in our community, have access to all information, services and facilities provided by Council. This includes:
- Access to services and events
- Physical access to building and facilities
- Provision of information in accessible formats
- Provision of quality services
- Opportunity to provide feedback
- Opportunity to participate in public consultation
- Awareness on disability and access
The Councils are committed to ensuring accessible and inclusive communities for everyone. As members of our regional community we are seeking your feedback to assist in the development of The Plan. Community surveys are available online at https://bit.ly/2ZcQGic and hard copies are available for collection or completion at all Council customer service counters.
Responses to the survey should be provided by 24 July 2020
From early July, current dog and cat registration renewal notices will be posted or emailed to owners within the Yorke Peninsula Council region. Dog registrations are mandatory within South Australia and must be registered by 3 months of ages, or within 14 days of possession. Cat registrations are free and strongly encouraged.
If you have not registered your furry friend, now is the perfect time. Head to www.dogsandcatsonline.com.au (DACO) and follow the links to register.
Dog and cat owners will receive their registration renewal notice in early July. Senior Compliance Officer, Phil Herrmann strongly encourages new owners, or those who no longer have a dog or cat, to please update their information by logging onto DACO or contacting our Council office.
Laws introduced from 1st July, 2018 made microchipping and desexing compulsory for pet owners. Currently, approximately 171 dogs across our region are still not microchipped.
As a gentle warning, from 1 September 2020 an audit will be conducted on dogs and cats that are not microchipped, and fines may be issued to owners that are not compliant.
Please be a responsible pet owner by registering, desexing and microchipping your beloved pet at one of our local veterinarian practices:

The SA Drought Support Program has identified that increasing farm business resilience and aiding recovery allows businesses to better prepare for and withstand future climatic and financial challenges, creating positive long-term outcomes.
The SA Farm Business Management Program is designed to support farm businesses in drought affected areas to increase business acumen and skills, while also building business resilience.
Participants will undertake a strategic review of their business and develop a business plan specific to their needs and situation. The business plan will address business risk management, identify opportunities for improvement and guide on-farm implementation. This will ensure a smooth transition from drought into recovery and back to business as usual, or better.
Starting 13 July, the 12-month program involves one-on-one coaching and group online sessions for drought affected producers across South Australia. Access to resources and online tools underpin the process, as do quarterly follow up sessions, allowing participants to move towards achieving goals within the business.
Online topics include strategic planning, benchmarking, creating and using budgets, practical steps for business resilience and drought recovery, managing risks on farm, making robust decisions and succession and management transition. All are key issues that when addressed, underpin successful farming businesses.
This program is open to all drought affected producers from grain, livestock or mixed businesses across South Australia.
Interested parties are encouraged to register as soon as possible due to limited spaces.
For more information please call 1300 746 466 or email email@example.com
2020 will be remembered as one of the toughest years yet. But we’re not out of it yet, there is more to do and local small businesses especially have hard times ahead.
Our small businesses are the go-to-people of our communities. They bring income to our towns and suburbs, provide local jobs, give our kids apprenticeships and work experience. They support local sporting teams, donate to local charities, work as volunteers.
Living through a pandemic makes it more important than ever to support local business. Our local accountants, tradies, shops and manufacturing businesses have always been there for us — now it’s our turn to make sure they stay open and operating into the future. By spending locally, you support the local economy, and the local workforce.
Many of us started to buy more locally during the Covid-19 shutdown. If we continue to do so, and more of us do so, then we will keep our main streets busy, local economies strong and jobs going. Buying locally is good for small business and good for us.
Staying local a little longer will make a big difference. You might be surprised by how much your local businesses have to offer.
To keep our communities thriving and help our economy recover, choose small business — because it’s everyone’s business.
If you are a small business yourself, consider signing up to Yorke Peninsula Shopping, a FFEE platform was developed to support Yorke Peninsula businesses get businesses online and trading again.

In January and February, as part of the Yorke Peninsula Council’s new kerbside waste management contract, two new wheelie bins (one red-lidded waste bin and one yellow-lidded recycling bin) were delivered to all eligible properties within the Council area.
These new bins replaced the old bins at each property, which were meant to be surrendered to be collected and taken away to be recycled. It appears that some residents have continued to use their old bins despite communications.
The Yorke Peninsula Council has recently instructed SUEZ, its kerbside waste management contractor, to cease servicing all old bins; therefore, residents must ensure they are only using their new bins from now on, as any old bins placed out for collection will not be serviced.
If your property is eligible to receive the waste and recycling collection service (you can confirm this by checking to see whether or not you pay the service charge on your rates notice or via a tax invoice), but you have not received new bins please contact the Yorke Peninsula Council on 08 8832 0000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to Ardrossan’s monthly green waste collection for April falling on Good Friday the collection will be delayed by one day to Saturday 11 April 2020.
Ardrossan residents please ensure you place your green waste bin out the night before to ensure it is collected on Saturday 11 April 2020.

A highly invasive prohibited weed, mistakenly sold as a plant at Ardrossan’s True Value Hardware during the past three months, must be urgently recovered to avoid an outbreak of this problem aquatic plant.
Salvinia, regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia and rated a Weed of National Significance (WoNS), was misidentified as the native duckweed until it was recently reported to PIRSA Biosecurity. It had been growing in the local store’s indoor pond and some pieces of the plant were broken off and sold or given away to customers.
This free-floating fern is known to quickly form a thick mass of vegetation in streams and dams that could threaten the state’s primary industries and natural environments. In the right conditions, it can double in size in a couple of days and thrives in nutrient-rich aquatic environments such as agricultural run-off or sewage. Salvinia’s dense matting restricts stock access to watering sites and provides favourable conditions for disease-carrying insects, as well as affecting aquatic habitat for birds and fish.

Yorke Peninsula Council has been advised by the Department of Environment and Water (DEW) that the Marion Bay prescribed burn unfortunately, due to current COVID-19 restrictions has been cancelled and will be rescheduled in 2021.
Following bushfire concerns raised by residents, The Yorke Peninsula Council, in conjunction with the Country Fire Service (CFS) and Department for Environment and Water (DEW), initiated a public consultation for the burn in August 2019. The result of this consultation was to undertake a 9 hectare prescribed burn in April 2020 on the west side of Marion Bay between Lowan Drive and Willyama Drive.
The purpose of this burn was to create a fuel reduced area to limit the spread and impact of bushfire toward Marion Bay from the west. Fuel loads in the area are currently very high to extreme and the consequence of a bushfire would be devastating.
Involved stakeholders managing the burn are currently unable to safely manage the social distancing, hygiene, catering and accommodation requirements associated with COVID-19 protocols. The current priority for all stakeholders is ensuring we are achieving our current social responsibilities for the community during the pandemic.
Council’s Senior Compliance Officer Phil Herrmann reinforced “staying bushfire ready is a shared responsibility where we all have a role to play. By ensure your property and family is protected appropriately against fire danger you are helping us, help you”.
Please remember to create a bush fire plan to ensure you are sufficiently prepared, it is your responsibility to protect your property and family appropriately. For more information on fire safety and fire prevention please visit the CFS website.
Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 situation and health controls handed down by governments, the 2020 YP Art Exhibition will no longer be held this Easter, but is being postponed / rescheduled to Easter 2021.
It is an unprecedented situation and the decision to postpone has not been made lightly, but made in the interest of our community and artists.
On behalf of the Working Party, we apologise for the inconvenience and would like to acknowledge all the work put in by all the members involved.
For further information, please call Council on 08 8832 0000 or email email@example.com
