A PILOT program to encourage new shops
to open for business in the main streets of
Riverland towns will start this year.
Minister for Planning John Rau said following
the recent Community Cabinet held in the
Riverland, Renewal SA would deliver a $200,000
pilot program in Renmark called Made in SA.
"The Made in SA program is about supporting
small business and activating the main streets,"
"When Cabinet visited the area in June, it was
clear that filling empty shops to renew main streets
is a critical issue for Riverland councils and the
"Through the Made in SA program, the
Government, councils and landlords will work
together to fill empty shops, helping to revitalise
the Riverland and create jobs."
Renmark Paringa Council chief executive
officer Tony Siviour said the program would boost
business opportunities in Renmark.
"The Hub concept is a global innovative co-
working community," he said.
"The trial program of a pop-up Hub in the
Riverland is evidence that the country cabinet
meetings are working and the Weatherill
Government is listening to the concerns of regional
The Made in SA pilot program is designed to
support new vendors that could help reactivate
the main street.
The program will include a pop-up Hub which
offers business programs and networking in the
main street of Renmark.
Waikerie man and 2013 Young South Australian
Citizen of the Year Zac Caudo said the program
would encourage people to bring their unique ideas
to the Riverland.
"I think it is a great opportunity to allow unique
ideas and businesses within the region the ability
to flourish and grow," he said.
"Isolation from major cities is one of our biggest
issues, the creation of this hub will offer greater
networking opportunities and the tools needed to
create successful business."
Hub Australia offers co-working spaces, learning
opportunities and professional communities across
Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
Made in SA will have a permanent home at HUB
Adelaide and in 2015 will activate a 'pop-up' HUB
A series of public workshops will be hosted in
Renmark from 5pm to 7pm on Friday, October 17,
Friday, November 7 and Friday, November 28.
