Regional Landscape Planning

The regional plan for the Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board, sets the 5 year direction for landscape management for the Eyre Peninsula region.

In July 2020, a new way of managing South Australian landscapes was welcomed with the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 replacing the former Natural Resources Management Act 2004. Given this change, and the appointment of the new Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board, the 2017-2027 regional plan (strategic plan) has been updated to a new Regional Landscape Plan for the Eyre Peninsula.

The new regional landscape plan, and supporting documents, outline the region’s key landscape requirements and the programs that will deliver the aims of the priority areas.

Our guiding documents

The Eyre Peninsula Regional Landscape Plan

The Eyre Peninsula Regional Landscape Plan sets the vision and priorities for the region to achieve sustainable landscape management from 2021-26. It focuses on the priority areas of water, sustainable agriculture, pest plants and animals, biodiversity and community, which were set out by the Minister for the Environment and Water when the landscape boards were established in July 2020.

The draft plan was open for community feedback in early 2021, with the Minister formally approving the plan in October 2021.

The Business Plan

Our Business Plan is updated every 12 months. The 2023-24 Business Plan outlines the programs that the Board has invested in this year, to achieve the strategic priorities outlined in our regional plan. It also includes details of income and expenditure, and landscape levy information for the period through to 30 June 2024.

The 2024-25 Business Plan which was approved by our Board in May 2024, outlines the programs that the Board will invest in and the framework for delivery of regional priorities, from July 2024 to June 2025.

Subregional descriptions

The Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board region covers an area of 80,000 square kilometres. It extends from Whyalla in the east, along the Gawler Ranges in the north, to the edge of the Nullarbor Plain in the west. The region includes over 3,000 kilometres of coastline spanning from the upper Spencer Gulf to the Great Australian Bight, including 182 offshore islands.

As part of our planning process, the region was divided into five subregions based on areas of similar landscape and land uses. The subregional descriptions provide an understanding of the natural resources, systems and drivers across the Eyre Peninsula. The five subregional descriptions are:

  • Spencer (Whyalla);
  • Central Eyre (includes Cowell, Cleve, Kimba, Wudinna and Lock);
  • Far West (includes Ceduna, Streaky Bay, Minnipa, Venus Bay and Smoky Bay);
  • Southern (includes Port Lincoln, Tumby Bay, Cummins and Coffin Bay); and
  • Musgrave (includes the towns of Elliston and Lock).
