State Government calls for nominations for Northern and Yorke Landscape Board

News article |

The South Australian Government is now calling for nominations for the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board.

The board plays an important role in the community, providing strategic leadership over the region’s landscape management priorities with a focus on land, water, pests and biodiversity.

Experienced, respected and passionate leaders with in-depth knowledge of land management and established community networks are encouraged to apply.

The Landscape South Australia Act 2019includes a provision for elections to be conducted for three members of each landscape board, by 11 November 2022.

However, due to concerns about the appropriateness of holding elections at the same time as local council elections, the State Government has made the decision not to hold elections in November 2022.

Rather, an open, transparent and robust process to appoint members by January 2023, is being undertaken prior to the expiry of existing member terms.

General Manager of the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board Tony Fox said Board members played a key role in maintaining and enhancing the health of natural resources, so our regional communities and economy can continue to prosper.

“We’re looking for respected community leaders who are passionate about sustainably managing this region’s landscapes; our land, water, pest plants and animals, and biodiversity,” said Mr Fox.

“It’s an opportunity to respond to local issues and support the sustainable growth of industries and the community.”

Applications close 30 September 2022. New board members will be appointed from February 2023.
