Victor Harbor named the ‘Best Large Town’

Victor Harbor was a 2017 Sustainable Communities' Award Winner

The City of Victor Harbor won ‘Best Large Town’ at the 2017 Sustainable Communities’ Awards last week.

The awards celebrate the sustainable actions, practices and achievements of South Australia’s regional and rural communities.

The City of Victor Harbor has been a top performer in the program for a number of years, and this year’s accolade shows a continued high standard across a wide range of council and community sustainability projects in Victor Harbor.

In presenting the award to the City of Victor Harbor, the judges particularly highlighted the Victor Harbor Mainstreet Upgrade project, along with the town pride beautification program, Men’s Shed development, work of local environmental groups and the Council’s role in delivering the Fleurieu Aquatic Centre.

Mayor Philp said the acknowledgement is a great reward for the continual hard work put in by the local community, particularly the volunteers who give up countless hours to make Victor Harbor better.
