Have your say on the Draft Regional NRM Plan

The Northern and Yorke NRM Board is currently reviewing the Northern and Yorke Regional NRM Plan.

The Regional NRM Plan 2009-2018 was adopted ten years ago and the Northern and Yorke NRM Board is updating the plan in consultation with the community and key stakeholders.

The updated Regional NRM Plan for 2018-2028 consists of:

  • a fresh 10 year strategic plan, outlining the vision, goals, targets and strategies for natural resources management in the region

  • a 3 year business plan, outlining the actions that the Northern and Yorke NRM Board will undertake and invest in to achieve the strategic plan’s goals.



The plan encourages people to work together to protect and enhance our natural ecosystems while sustaining the region's primary production, local economies, social and community well-being.

Natural Resources Northern and Yorke has carried out extensive community engagement in the past two years to define what matters to our community, determine the challenges facing the region and, importantly, identify opportunities to address these challenges.

Your input and feedback will help make sure what we have heard and captured in the plan is correct before finalising the document.

What next?

Extensive community engagement has been undertaken over the past two years to define what matters to our community, whilst also identifying the challenges facing the region and importantly, the opportunities to address these challenges.

Our next step is to confirm the content of the Draft Regional NRM Plan; we want to check that the right priorities have been identified, and that we agree on how they should be tackled and why.

Where to from here?

The Northern and Yorke NRM Board invite your feedback on the draft Regional NRM Plan 2018-2028.

Your input, as well as input from local government, industry, environmental organisations, community groups and other key stakeholders will help the board determine whether the plan reflects the values and needs of our community.

All feedback will be considered by the Northern and Yorke NRM Board in finalising the draft Regional NRM Plan.

The daft Regional NRM Plan will then be amended as a result of your feedback, and forwarded to the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, along with the consultation report, for consideration and adoption by June 2018.
