This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 11 January 2019 to 31 January 2019. Below is a record of the consultation process.
You are invited to have your say on the Kangaroo Island NRM Business Plan 2019-2022.
What is being decided?
The Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management (NRM) Business Plan 2019-2022 outlines future NRM activities on the island and the board’s expected income and proposed expenditure for the next three years.
The 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.
This business plan also identifies the expected sources of investment for the financial years 2019/20–2021/22, including the land levy, which is collected by the Kangaroo Island Council, and Australian Government funding for projects through their Regional Land Partnerships program.
The board’s priorities encompass a wide range of policies for natural resources management, and cover the following:
• Pest plant and animals
• Land stewardship
• Leadership and governance.
Landscape SA - NRM reforms
The business plan is a transitional plan while the State Government implements NRM reforms across the state. While it has been prepared to cover a 3-year period, it is anticipated this plan will be replaced by the State Government's new Landscape South Australia plans before the end of the 3-year period.
This business plan recognises the State Government’s reform agenda and aligns with the Landscape SA priorities.

How can your input influence the decision?
Your input on the NRM Board’s business plan will help ensure our proposed priorities and expenditure meet the needs and expectations of the Kangaroo Island community.
A summary of consultation submissions will be prepared in a consultation report within 2 weeks of the closure date and made available on this website.
The business plan is then expected to be passed to the Minister’s office for approval by the middle of February.
