Biodiversity Management Strategy

Council made a plan in 2015 to adopt a 20-year Biodiversity Management Strategy (BMS) to protect and enhance the unique biodiversity in our area.

Every four years, Council does a review of the plan to make sure the best practices and knowledge are used.

The BMS has many goals, including understanding and caring for the plants and animals, teaching people about them, working with landowners to protect nature, and making sure the environment is safe and healthy.

The BMS has led to the Rural Landholder Initiative, which partners with rural landholders to manage biodiversity, and the Urban Green Corridors Plan, which conserves and restores biodiversity in urban areas. For more information, visit the BMS documents available on request.
