The North Central CMA partners with the community, as well as other regional stakeholders, to protect and enhance the environment of the North Central Region encompassing the Avon-Richardson, Avoca, Loddon and Campaspe catchments..
Preparing a Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) for the Region is one of the North Central CMA's obligations under the Catchment and Land Protection Act (CALP) 1994.
The RCS is the primary planning framework for the management of land, water and biodiversity across the four catchments. The RCS sets the future direction for the protection and enhancement of our natural resources and is developed in collaboration with our community.
The most recent RCS has been reviewed and is now undergoing a renewal process, with the next North Central RCS to be a six-year document covering 2012-2018.
The renewal process involves extensive community and stakeholder consultation to identify the region's significant natural resource assets.
The RCS renewal process began in 2009 with a series of community workshops to identify natural assets valued by the community. The resultant information has been captured and is available on the North Central CMA website. We are now in the process of building on this information as part of the renewal for the 2012-18 RCS.
If you are interested in being a part of the RCS renewal process please contact us on email@example.com.
