After taking onboard feedback received through community consultation in late 2019, the final version of the Natural Resource Management (NRM) Strategy 2020-2030 has been unanimously adopted by Lockyer Valley Council. Please find it located in the Document Library on the right of this page.
The next phase of the project will now begin with two workshops scheduled in February for the NRM Working Group to begin developing actions for the NRM Plan. These actions will outline how the aims and objectives in the NRM Strategy can be achieved.
A draft NRM Plan will be released for community consultation later this year.
The NRM Working Group held their second workshop on Saturday 3 August, 2019, with 34 members in attendance. The purpose of this workshop was to firstly identify the Lockyer Valley’s natural assets, and then determine why we value them, threats to these natural assets and what we want for them in the form of Strategic Aims.
The Working Group members contributed an amazing amount of information which has been converted into the draft NRM Strategy. A newsletter was created to summarise the activities and findings from the first workshop to help the working group disseminate information to the community members they are representing (see Document Library to the right).
The Draft Strategy was sent out to the working group for their comments, with changes to the document made accordingly. The 2nd draft of the Strategy is available for community consultation until Sunday 1 December.
The NRM Working Group held their first workshop on Tuesday 25 June 2019, with 38 members in attendance. The purpose of the first workshop was for the NRM Working Group members to get to know each other and appreciate the diversity of stakeholders within the group. Their first task was to collectively create a list of principles they will follow when working together to achieve their overall purpose.
Council Officers collated all the NRM Working Groups recommendations into a list of Principles. These Principles were then incorporated into a Draft Terms of Reference document which was distributed to the NRM Working Group members for comment. Comments were received and incorporated into the final Natural Resource Management Working Group Terms of Reference document which was adopted by Council on 24 July.
A newsletter was created to summarise the activities and findings from the first workshop. The NRM Working Group members will use this newsletter to disseminate information to the community members they are representing. The newsletter and adopted Terms of Reference are available in the Document Library section to the right.
