State and federal governments have signed an agreement to develop a City Deal for Adelaide.

The South Australian Government says the City Deal will be developed in partnership with local governments, communities and the private sector to support long-term growth of Adelaide.

“It will focus on fostering, attracting and retaining a skilled workforce and establishing a framework for all three levels of government to work together to achieve the city’s goals of a growing population and a growing economy,” the SA Government said.

Authorities from all tiers of government will work to develop a City Deal for Adelaide in early 2019 based on the following themes:

  • Targeted investment to deliver a precinct that drives entrepreneurship and innovation, centred on the redevelopment of the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site, known as Lot Fourteen
  • Getting the settings right to better manage population growth and city planning
  • Enhancing Adelaide’s liveability through investment in culture and the arts
