Natural Resource Management Strategy & Plan

Project Overview

Community members are now invited to express their interest to be part of the Lockyer Valley Natural Resource Management Working Group.

This collaborative project between Lockyer Valley Regional Council and the community will develop a Natural Resource Management (NRM) Strategy and a Natural Resource Management Plan by 2020. These two documents will ensure the region’s natural assets are valued and protected will help prioritise available funding towards these natural assets.

The Working Group’s main functions will include:

  • Sharing valuable expert local knowledge on the regions natural resource values, and threats to these values (both spatially and temporally) to ensure the accuracy and quality of the NRM Plan actions.
  • Ensuring that the NRM Strategy and NRM Plan reflect the values and priorities of the community.
  • Collecting and disseminating information to and from the community members they are representing.

The NRM Strategy and NRM Plans will be developed with the Natural Resource Management working group via four workshops. The workshops will be independently facilitated to ensure the best use of the working group’s time, and ensure we maximise the amount and quality of useful information gathered.

More information on the project and working group is available in the Document Library and FAQs sections.

Expressions of interest close at 5:00pm on 5 June 2019.
