The future of the McCormick Centre of the environment is now clearer with Renmark-Paringa council welcoming a move to see the centre potentially used more.

As a part of the changes a 30 year deed of agreement with the Australian Landscape Trust (ALT) singed in 2001 has been terminated.

Renmark-Paringa Council’s acting director of corporate and community services Peter Bull told the Murray Pioneer "The deed detailed the centre was to be maintained as a resource for education, information and research however increased usage of the centre never eventuated"

Council CEO Tony Siviour said council is looking forward to finding a sustainable use for the centre.

Some Ideas for the future include an innovation hub as well as an education precinct.
