Currently, Natural Resources Management Boards are required to meet legislative requirements under the current Natural Resources Management Act 2004 (the NRM Act).
Under the NRM Act, regional NRM boards must review their business plans at least once in every three years. The Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board has reviewed its current plan and prepared a new draft plan to cover the period of 2019-20 to 2021-22. The NRM Board is seeking your feedback on this new draft plan.
Consistent with the State Government’s policy, the draft plan proposes to limit increases to the regional NRM land and water levies to CPI over the life of the plan.
A new bill, the Landscape SA Bill, is expected to be introduced into Parliament in early 2019, as part of NRM reforms in South Australia. This bill aims to replace the current NRM Act.
Once a new business plan has been finalised, it is intended that the plan will not undergo a further review until the new Landscapes South Australia Act is in place.
