About the plan

The Hills and Fleurieu Landscape Board is developing a Five Year Landscape Plan to guide the management of our region’s landscapes. We want this region to become an international exemplar; known for its healthy, productive, resilient and beautiful landscapes, achieved through whole community action.

We invite you to help create a plan that captures the community’s values and provides a clear vision, targets and priorities for action. Everyone is welcome to participate, regardless of whether you are a landholder, volunteer, stakeholder, student, council elected member, or anyone else living, working or spending time in the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula.

Draft priorities

In developing the draft priorities for the Five Year Landscape Plan, the board has suggested five priorities across the areas of Land, Water, Nature, Climate and Community. The Board sees these priorities as deeply interconnected and requiring interconnected responses linked by strong community involvement. 

Community, and the capacity and motivation of people to take action is seen as critical to all aspects of managing and protecting our landscapes.

After hearing the community’s ideas on the region’s priorities and how they might be achieved, the board will finalise a draft Plan for consultation with the community in February 2021. This Plan will be finalised by July 2021.
