Restore Renew Adelaide funding to Port Adelaide

This petition had 24 supporters

The South Australian Government has axed all funding from Renew Adelaide's Port Adelaide program, which has helped bring 28 new businesses to life in the area since it started five years ago.

The annual funding, worth $120,000 in 2016, means that seven businesses currently in the program will either have to vacate premises shortly or negotiate new leases with landlords.

This is bad news for locals, bad news for workers, and bad news for the Port. We are calling on the government to reverse this decision or re-invest this money into a similar scheme that won't leave workers or Port Adelaide worse off.
