The Kangaroo Island NRM Business Plan 2019–2022 sets out how the board aims to deliver on the goals and objectives of the strategic Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Plan 2017–2027 through its investment over the 3-year period.
This business plan identifies the expected sources of investment for the financial years 2019/20–2021/22.
The business plan 2019–2022 doesn't reflect all funding the region receives, as it doesn't include the state allocation to parks, public lands and state based project activities in the region.
The Natural Resources Kangaroo Island Regional Director, who is also Executive Officer to the board, is responsible for managing staff and resources within the region involved in both Department for Environment and Water and board related programs.
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 the plan will not undergo a further review until the new Landscapes South Australia Act is in place.
