Our region's plan

The Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management (NRM) Plan is developed by the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board in partnership with the community and key stakeholders. It provides leadership, encourages action and fosters valuable partnerships for better managing the region's natural resources. It also includes long-term goals and aspirational targets for the future.

This regional NRM plan has been prepared under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004.

What does the plan look like?

The regional NRM plan is made up of two volumes; the strategic plan, and the business and operational plan.

The strategic plan (volume 1) is intended to apply to all stakeholders managing natural resources in the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges region. It has a 10 year time frame, but as the board intends for this to be an adaptive plan, it will be reviewed and amended frequently to ensure that it remains up to date and usable

You can read an overview of this strategic plan.

The strategic plan has been split into two files for ease of access:

The business and operational plan (volume 2) applies to the board and outlines how it will invest the money that it raises through levies and other funding sources over a three-year timeframe.

The evidence used to develop the plan

While developing the NRM plan a library of evidence was created (search for AMLR NRM Board). This library catalogues the evidence that was used to develop the plan. The library is continually added to as new and better information to support the plan becomes available.  

Consulting the community to review the plan

The strategic volume of the NRM plan can be reviewed at any time, however the board’s business and operation plan must be reviewed every three years, and the whole plan at least once in every 10 years.

The board’s business and operational plan was previously reviewed in 2014.
