The Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board seeks community comment on the draft Eyre Peninsula Regional Landscape Plan, which sets the vision and priorities for the region to achieve sustainable landscape management.
The draft plan focuses on the priority areas of water, sustainable agriculture, pest plants and animals, biodiversity and community, which were set out by the Minister for the Environment and Water when the landscape boards were established in July 2020. The draft plan, and supporting documents, outline the region’s key landscape requirements and the programs that will deliver the aims of the priority areas.
The Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board region covers an area of 80,000 square kilometres. It extends from Whyalla in the east, along the Gawler Ranges in the north, to the edge of the Nullarbor Plain in the west.
The region includes over 3,000 kilometres of coastline spanning from the upper Spencer Gulf to the Great Australian Bight, including 182 offshore islands.
