Our region's plan

SA Arid Lands regional landscape plan

The Landscape South Australia Act 2019 has introduced a new, simpler planning framework to guide how our landscapes are managed. During 2020/21, the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board, with community input, will be developing a new plan to guide landscape management activities in the region. This 5 year regional landscape plan will identify five key priorities for the SA Arid Lands landscape management and link to the state landscape strategy and the Board’s annual business plan, and water allocation plan.

During the 2020/21 transitional year while the Board’s regional landscape plan is being developed, the Board’s activities will continue to deliver against the goals of the SA Arid Lands Regional NRM Plan 'It's Your Place'. 


Annual Business Plan 

The Board’s business plan sets out how the Board will generate and invest its income, which includes water and landscape levies.

The Board directs funding across a number of key areas, working with government, pastoralists, mining and petroleum companies, tourism groups, progress associations, Aboriginal communities, non-government organisations and other community groups to build their capacity to sustainably manage their land.

In addition to providing strategic advice on regional natural resource management issues and priorities, through its business plan the Board funds on-ground activities which are carried out by its staff.
