Draft North East RCS engagement underway - have your say

Draft North East Regional Catchment Strategy now being reviewed

Feedback to the draft North East Regional Catchment Strategy is now CLOSED. This draft strategy remains a work in progress as feedback is considered and incorporated into the final document, following the close of the consultation period.

A final version of the strategy will be submitted to the Victorian Government at the end of September 2021.

North East Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) Update

Now is the time to speak up. The North East RCS update process is at a turning point. We are developing outcomes and priorities to address the challenges and opportunities for north east Victoria identified in the Insights Paper, ahead of writing the draft Strategy.

What is the Regional Catchment Strategy?

Established by the Victorian Government to provide a blueprint for natural resource management at a regional level, the Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) has become much more. The RCS considers how people and place are entwined, what drives change and how we can deal with opportunities and threats to create resilient landscapes in North East Victoria. Priorities, targets, and directions included in the RCS provide an overarching framework to guide natural resource management planning and investment in local government, government agencies and community groups for the next six years.

The Insights Paper is out

The Insights Paper is part of the North East Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) update process. The Insights Paper summarises our catchment condition, what is changing in the region, and what it means moving forward, including some challenges and opportunities to build a more resilient future for the North East region.

Thank you to everyone who has commented on the Insights Paper. If you didn't get to a workshop, there is still an opportunity to input through the online survey or you could attend a local landscape workshop.

Why local landscapes?

Sometimes these goals and priorities are targeted at the regional level and sometimes they are targeted at a more local scale. Because of this the RCS will include a section on local landscapes and for each landscape include a description of the key features, condition, changes, and a vision and outcomes and priority directions that reflect the local communities' priorities and interests.
