Our region's plan
Why do we have a regional landscape plan?
A regional landscape plan guides natural resources management activities such as pest control, sharing groundwater, and soil and landscape management over a ten year period, and guides the allocation of the regional land levy.
Having a regional plan is a statutory requirement under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 for the Limestone Coast Landscape Board.
Subregional Plans, developed in consultation with the community over 2017-18, provide direction on the threats, values and drivers for landscape management across the region.
Limestone Coast Landscape Board Business Plan 2020-21
This is a regional Landscape Board Business Plan 2021/22 under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 transitional provisions (Schedule 5 s. 90).
The initial Business Plan consists of the Business Plan of the former South East NRM Board, which has been adopted by the Limestone Coast Landscape Board to the extent that it relates to the Limestone Coast landscape management region, and adjusted by this document.
