Thank you to everyone who provided feedback about Onkaparinga Now.

We were thrilled to hear that residents enjoy reading Onkaparinga Now and look forward to its mix of local stories and engaging content.

Over 250 people provided feedback with more than 76 per cent of saying they read the print version of Onkaparinga Now.

You can view the full community engagement feedback report here.

Many people also told us they wanted more print copies available from more locations and our aim was to achieve this while still delivering an overall cost reduction for our ratepayers.

So, we’ve decided to cease printing the single-page flyer known as Onkaparinga in Brief, issued with quarterly rates notices.

We’ve used those savings to redesign Onkaparinga Now in a new format, as a 12-page mini magazine that will be included with quarterly rates notices. A digital copy of the magazine will also be sent to ratepayers that receive their quarterly rates notices via email.

The first edition of the new magazine will be published in October 2021, and our new approach will save almost $6000 a year in overall production costs.

Taking this approach means every ratepayer will regularly receive more detailed stories and information about council, local businesses, the environment and the amazing local people that make Onkaparinga a great place to live.

We’ll continue to provide 600 copies of the magazine at all council offices and facilities, and we’ll now print a further 600 copies and make these available at selected non-council facilities and businesses across the Onkaparinga region. As soon as these non-council locations are finalised we will let our residents know.

Don’t forget that Onkaparinga Now also will continue to be available online, with the latest stories added weekly.

The best way to stay in touch is to subscribe to the online version of Onkaparinga Now to receive monthly updates about your community via email, visit www.onkaparinganow.com weekly to read the latest news, and read the quarterly print edition when it arrives with your rates notices.

If you’re not a ratepayer, simply pick up a print copy, or subscribe and visit the website.
