Our region's plan

The Northern and Yorke's plan guides how the land, water, biodiversity, marine and coastal environments are managed in our region.

It was developed in consultation with the community and key stakeholders and encourages people to work together to protect and enhance our natural ecosystems while sustaining the region's primary production, local economies, social and community well-being.

The plan is delivered by the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board through a diverse range of programs and projects that combine the priorities of the community with the legislative responsibilities of the Board. The Regional Landscape Plan will be developed in 2021 and aligned with the State's Landscape Plan.

The plan is made up of two parts:

  • Strategic Plan 2019-2029 The vision, goals, targets and strategies for landscapes in the Northern and Yorke region.
  • Business plan 2020-2021 The actions that the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board will undertake and invest in to achieve the goals of the Strategic Plan. The Business Plan was approved by the Minister for Environment and Water, David Speirs MP on 22 June 2020.

The Business Plan is a stand-alone document that identifies investment priorities for the next three years. This is a ‘rolling’ document, meaning that it is reviewed and updated each year.
