South Para Collaborative Fire Management Plan

South Para Collaborative Fire Management Plan

The draft fire management plan covers over 20 thousand hectares of conservation land, plantation forest and drinking water catchment managed by SA Water, Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) and ForestrySA in the Mount Lofty Ranges, as well as privately managed Heritage Agreements. This includes:

  • Barossa, South Para, Little Para, Millbrook, Kangaroo Creek and Warren Reservoir Reserves
  • Cromer, Cudlee Creek, Hale, Kaiserstuhl, Kenneth Stirling (Burdetts Block), Montacute, Sandy Creek and Warren Conservation Parks and Para Wirra Recreation Park
  • Mount Crawford Forest Reserve
  • Heritage Agreements adjoining public land.
  • The planning area covers the largest linked area of remnant native vegetation in the Mount Lofty Ranges.

This plan has been developed through collaboration between SA Water, ForestrySA, DEWNR and the SA Country Fire Service, to guide bushfire risk management across the landscape and is now ready for public consultation.

The Public Consultation period has now closed. The final Plan will be released early 2014.
