New landscape plan for the region
09 September 2021
Posted 13 September 2021.
The Minister for Environment and Water, Honourable David Speirs MP, has approved the Murraylands and Riverland Regional Landscape Plan, 2021-2026.
The plan has been developed in consultation with key stakeholders across the Murraylands and Riverland region. It outlines how the landscape board will deliver practical, on-ground action to manage regional natural resources in partnership with people and communities.
Minister Speirs said our historic Landscape SA reform is putting communities back at the heart of natural resources management and these Landscape Plans are a key part of this.
“I look forward to seeing Landscape Boards across the state deliver our back-to-basics approach in partnership with the wider community,” Minister Speirs said.
Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board Chair Dianne Davidson AM said we know that the success of this plan will only be achieved through partnerships with landholders, First Nations, industry, government and our wider community.
“The Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board thanks everyone who provided feedback during the plan’s development and looks forward to implementing it over the next five years,” Ms Davidson said.
“We invite you to connect with us in delivering this plan.”
The plan has five priorities, supported by focus areas, to guide the investment of the board:
• sustainable agricultural and pastoral landscapes
• sustainable water use
• healthy rivers, lakes and wetlands
• healthy natural landscapes
• people at the heart of landscape management.
