A new Catchment Action Plan for the northern rivers will set priorities for investment in natural-resource management projects over the next decade right across our region.
There is an opportunity for public comment via a series of public consultation sessions during October. Submissions will also be accepted online and in writing to the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority.
Residents and landowners, and anyone interested in the future management of our natural resources, are invited to find out more about the draft plan, which will be on public exhibition from October 15 to November 9. It can be viewed or downloaded at yoursay.northern.cma.nsw.gov.au from October 15.
Two meetings will take place on Thursday October 25: Bangalow RSL Hall at 10am and Kyogle Memorial Hall at 1.30pm. There will be a 5.30pm meeting at Murwillumbah Civic Centre on Monday October 29.
The meetings will be presented by the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority in conjunction with Richmond Landcare, Brunswick Valley Landcare, Tweed Landcare and Northern Landcare Support Services.
