Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Centre on the move
29 November 2016
Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Management (NRM) services will soon move to the former Clare TAFE campus at 155 Main North Road, Clare.
Part of the former Clare TAFE campus is currently being refurbished, with plans to relocate DEWNR’s Clare Regional Office and Natural Resources Centre to the site by the end of the year.
The Clare Natural Resources Centre provides a one-stop shop for customers seeking a broad range of natural resources management services and information including land and water management, pest plant and animal advice and permits, educational resources, tourist and Parks SA information and wildlife and environment services.
Natural Resources Northern and Yorke Regional Director Trevor Naismith said the new Clare Regional Office and Natural Resources Centre will provide greater visibility and accessibility.
“Prior to housing the Clare TAFE SA campus, the iconic building was the original Clare Primary School and first opened its doors on 8 August 1879,” Mr Naismith said.
“Our new location has a great public presence that will make it easier for both community members and visitors to our region to access information and services provided by Natural Resources Northern and Yorke.
“We look forward to creating an integrated Natural Resources Centre, with increased community and volunteer engagement opportunities, facilitation of educational initiatives for schools, universities and training organisations and the provision of promotion, support and advice around local NRM issues.”
Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Management Board Presiding Member Eric Sommerville said the opportunities that come with the relocation to the campus were vast.
“Looking to the future, there is an exciting collaborative development planned for the precinct, comprising Government and Non-Government agencies, offering a diverse range of services to regional and rural communities throughout the Northern and Yorke region,” Mr Sommerville said.
