Your say on the Natural Resources Business Plan
17 December 2015
You can have your say on how the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board invests in the region to manage our natural resources – such as land, water, coastal environments, native vegetation and soils.
The Draft Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board Business Plan for 2016 – 2019 outlines the Board’s proposal for investment and is now out for consultation.
Presiding Member of Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board, Diana Laube said, the Board is pleased to present its 2016-19 Draft Business Plan which we are confident will strengthen our region’s sustainability into the future.
“During 2015/16, we will see the completion of both our Water Allocation Plan and the Natural Resources Management Plan (our Strategic Plan) Following strong input from our community, these documents will stand us in really good stead as we partner with others to build resilience into our natural systems, and our community, through the life of this Business Plan.”
‘On the overarching level, we are strongly committed to being a part of the state’s economic future with continued commitment to sustainable primary production, ensuring healthy soils, marine environments, and healthy ecosystems,’ Ms Laube said.
The business plan proposes a change to the basis of the levy, moving from a single fixed rate per assessment to a new fixed rate that varies depending on the purpose of the land use. It also includes an achievements snapshot of the some of the many programs and activities the Board has delivered in partnership with industry, local government, landholders, farming groups, volunteers and community organisations over the past year.
Copies of the plan can be downloaded from the website or a hard copy can be obtained from the Natural Resources Centre in Port Lincoln or call 8688 3111 to request copy be posted to you. Consultation will be open until 12 February 2016, so ensure you have your say.
