Participate in review of Natural Resource Management Plan

Date posted: 06 May 2013

The Eyre Peninsula’s Natural Resources Management Board is commencing a review of the region’s Natural Resources Management (NRM) Plan. The current NRM Plan was implemented in 2009 and has provided direction for all stakeholders involved in managing the region’s natural resources.

Over the past four years, progress has been made in achieving the targets set out in the current plan. The Board is now looking to prepare for the next generation plan for the region.

The Board’s Presiding Member, Heather Baldock, invites members of the community, industry and all users of the region’s natural resources to participate in the review.

“Involvement of our region’s community and key stakeholders is crucial to understanding the usefulness of the current NRM Plan”, she said.

“This feedback will inform and guide future actions that may include a revision of the region’s Plan.”

Mrs Baldock said reviewing the current plan was the first step in preparing a relevant future plan.

“The plan will provide a foundation for future generations, in a changing landscape,” she added.

The NRM Plan outlines a strategic framework for the management of Eyre Peninsula’s natural resources.

An online survey has been developed to capture inputs on the regional NRM plan.

The survey is now is available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/epnrmplanreview. A link to online survey is also available on the Board’s website at www.epnrm.sa.gov.au.

Community members are encouraged to contact Evelyn Poole at the Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula Office Centre on (08) 8682 7555, by email evelyn.poole@sa.gov.au or at the Napoleon Street office in regard to any matters relating to the region’s Natural Resource Management Plan.
