Health & Ageing in our Community

The District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula (DCLEP) has partnered with the Cummins District Community Bank® in a project looking at the health and ageing needs of our community.


This survey aims to ensure that local health services are maintained and improved by looking at how and where we access services and any gaps or barriers. The survey also examines the needs of our ageing residents, including in-home support and residential aged care.

This survey is open to all residents of DCLEP and we are requesting that one survey be completed per household by clicking on the feedback link below. This survey has also been sent out with all rates notices in hard copy.

Tulka S Bend

Following an inability to resolve a number of contractual issues, the Council has taken back possession of the site. Council staff are repairing the road surface and reinstating traffic management signage. Due to the protracted negotiations and the time of year, any further work on site other than maintaining the road surface will be unlikely until late or early April. Council will be working with the funding agencies (Motor Accident Commission and DPTI) to bring this project to a conclusion as soon as practicable in 2017. We apologise for the inconvenience.
