Meet Partnership Chairperson David Greenhough
Each edition, we’ll introduce you to one of the 13 members of the Glenthorne Partnership who are helping to shape this new national park.
The Glenthorne Partnership was created to provide important community insight, ideas and perspectives, and help make decisions to ensure the park meets community needs and expectations.
The group includes community members with connections to surrounding ‘Friends of Parks’ volunteer groups, the Kaurna community, the City of Marion, the local business association and local R‑12 school.
David Greenhough is the chairperson of the Glenthorne Partnership. Read more about David and his connection to the creation of Glenthorne National Park.
‘I have lived in Hallett Cove for more than 20 years and have an association with the area that spans some 40 plus years’ he said.
‘I have been self-employed for more than 30 years running various businesses both in SA and interstate. I retired on 1 August 2017. I have always had an interest in the environment and its rehabilitation and revegetation. Now that I am retired, I can devote more time to this passion.
‘I was invited to chair the Glenthorne Partnership by the Minister for Environment and Water, David Speirs. I was a founding member and inaugural chair of the Friends of Lower Field River so have been involved in the Glenthorne National Park precinct for many years.
‘I feel that the creation of Glenthorne National Park and development of the greater Glenthorne precinct will provide valuable open and recreational space as well as environmental rehabilitation for generations to come. It will safeguard what is an important asset in the south from future development.’
