Our Regional Landscape Plan
Why do we have a regional landscape plan?
A regional landscape plan guides natural resources management activities such as pest control, sharing groundwater, and soil and landscape management over a ten year period, and guides the allocation of the regional land levy and water levy.
Having a regional plan is a statutory requirement under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 for the Limestone Coast Landscape Board.
Over the last few months, the board has been working with stakeholders, First Nations and staff to develop a draft Regional Landscape Plan that reflects our statutory responsibilities under the Act, the pressures created by a changing climate, the needs of the Limestone Coast landscape to manage primary production sustainably and to protect and enhance our unique biodiversity, in balance with the social and cultural needs of the people who live, work and play in the Limestone Coast.
Public consultation for the Regional Landscape Plan has closed.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on our draft Vision, Priorities and Focus Areas. The LC Landscape Board will now consider a final draft before sending the plan to the Minister for Environment and Water for his endorsement.
Our Annual Business Plan
The draft 2021/22 Limestone Coast Landscape Board Business Plan has been out for public consultation from 12 - 30 April 2021. That consultation period has now closed and the board will consider all the feedback received before approving a final version.
The business plan describes our income and expenditure for the next financial year and details the projects in which the LC Landscape Board has chosen to invest. Delivery of services on behalf of the Australian Government's National Landcare Program is also detailed.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this important planning process.
