Community forums to help design NRM projects

News article |

Following the success of last year’s community workshops to identify actions to protect what we value in our landscapes, the South East Natural Resource Management Board is now inviting the community to help design on-ground projects to drive these actions.

Newly appointed Presiding Member of the South East NRM Board, Fiona Rasheed, said the Board recognises that the South East has a mix of different landscape types, and as a result there are different community issues and opportunities across the region.

“With these different needs in mind, we worked with the community to develop four subregional NRM plans,” Ms Rasheed said.

“These plans identify local priorities and set out actions that can be used by groups and organisations working in NRM.”

The Board will be holding forums during May where the community will co-design projects with staff based on the key actions they would like to see happen in the next three years in their subregion.

“These forums are about getting the plans into action and influencing how the NRM levy is spent,” Ms Rasheed said.

“We’d also like to hear which individuals, landholders and organisations can collaborate with the Board to implement these projects.”
