Regional plans & strategies

Corangamite Regional Catchment Strategy 2013-2019

The Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) guides the long-term direction for managing Corangamite’s land, water resources, biodiversity and coastal assets.

The Corangamite Regional Catchment Strategy 2013–2019 provides a vision for the integrated management of natural resources in the Corangamite region. It is a blueprint for catchment health in the future and builds on the achievements and lessons from the past.

Corangamite CMA Corporate Plan 2019-2024

This Corporate Plan sets out the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority’s (CMA) approach for the next five years to implement its vision of ‘healthy and productive lands and waters cared for by thriving communities’.

Community participation and investment are essential to both implementing our vision and managing significant issues for both the world and our region in Climate Change and a decline in biodiversity.

– Alice Knight OAM, Chair, Corangamite Catchment Management Authority

Corangamite Waterway Strategy 2014-2022

The Corangamite Waterway Strategy (CWS) brings together the directions and policies in the Victorian Waterway Management Strategy, and the objectives and actions from the Corangamite Regional Catchment Strategy. It builds on and replaces the existing Corangamite River Health Strategy completed in 2006.

The CWS incorporates rivers, estuaries and wetlands, it sets priorities and outlines a regional work program to guide investment for the next eight years. The CWS will guide a coordinated effort and has a strong focus on integration and community participation, values and aspirations.

Corangamite Regional Floodplain Management Strategy 2018-2028

The Corangamite Floodplain Management Strategy outlines how the ecological and cultural values of the natural floodplains can be protected while also managing the risks to life, property and assets associated with flooding.

The strategy focuses on flooding associated with river systems (riverine flooding) and coastal storm surge inundation and includes planning for projected sea level rise scenarios. It does not include actions relating to rural drainage, or to stormwater flooding which is the responsibility of local government and therefore best dealt with through local government planning processes.

Corangamite Natural Resource Management Plan for Climate Change

The Corangamite Natural Resource Management Plan for Climate Change aims to support the region to incorporate climate change mitigation and adaption into NRM planning, and provide a blueprint for managing the region’s natural assets under a changing climate.

The plan identifies the need to encourage the community to address climate change at the paddock, catchment and regional scale. A key to achieving success is growing and nurturing a range of partnerships. The Corangamite CMA recognises the role of Australian, Victorian and local governments, along with community groups, Aboriginal people and the region’s industries.
