Our region's plan

Draft SA Arid Lands Regional Landscape Plan


The SA Arid Lands Landscape Board is developing a new plan for the region.

The draft Regional Landscape Plan 2021-2026 has been developed in line with the requirements of the Landscape South Australia Act 2019, and identifies five priorities for landscape management in the SA Arid Lands that will guide Board investment for the next five years.

  • Climate resilient region
  • Water management
  • Sustainable land management
  • Protecting and enhancing biodiversity
  • People and partnerships

The draft plan is founded on what we’ve heard from community through planning workshops with district Landscape Groups, contributions to the former NRM Plan, and feedback on the Water Allocation Plan and other recent outback community consultations.

Consultation on this document has now closed and feedback is being reviewed. The final Regional Landscape Plan will be published on our website once it has been approved.

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 landscape management issues and priorities, through its business plan the Board funds on-ground activities which are carried out by its staff. 

The Board's Annual Business Plan for 2021/22 is in development.
