Local government

Local government processes and decisions affect social, economic and environmental values throughout the region.

The Corangamite CMA local government program aims to strengthen relationships with the nine regional municipalities across the region to achieve positive NRM outcomes at a local level.

As a regional natural resource management body, Corangamite CMA’s primary focus is protecting and enhancing environmental assets. This can be achieved by aligning regional and local government NRM priorities to develop and deliver key projects and by integrating the NRM priorities of the RCS into local government planning processes.

Local Councils are key stakeholders and we will engage them to assist with the development of the new RCS, due for completion by June 2012.

Other initiatives with local government include support with regional land use planning projects and development of a Natural Assets Alliance.
