Subregional NRM planning

The Subregional NRM Plans for our region have been finalised and adopted by the SE NRM Board, following community consultation late last year. 

The Subregional NRM Plans (Mallee Woodlands, Ranges and Cross-border Creeks, Dunes and Flats, Volcanic Plains and Southern Dunes) identify local values and priorities and set out an action plan that can be used by a range of organisations and groups working in NRM. 

In preparing the Subregional NRM Plans the Board sought to understand community values about NRM in each subregion and what drives and threatens our landscapes. Information was gathered through surveys, meetings and forums, and then brought together into community workshops in mid-2017 where we discussed the future of our landscapes and what actions to take.

Putting plans into action

In May 2018, almost 100 community members got together with Board members and staff, to develop key NRM actions into projects for funding through the NRM levy over the next three years. Projects include supporting landholders in best practice soil management; targeted control of pest species and increased compliance; supporting landholders to protect and establish native vegetation; protecting habitat for coastal birds; and protecting water quality for public water supply, wetlands and primary production. View the full summary of project ideas.

Work on a number of these projects will commence later in 2018. The Board will involve as many community members as possible, with subregional forums held in the next six months to track progress on the projects.
