The Corangamite Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) is a blueprint for catchment health. It provides a strategic, integrated framework for natural resource management in the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority’s region of Victoria.

As part of this process a comprehensive program of community and stakeholder engagement has been delivered at the regional level to identify the outcomes and priority directions for the management of the region’s water, biodiversity, land, coast & marine and community assets.

The information and advice collected through this engagement has been used to develop a draft Corangamite RCS. We are now providing a further opportunity for the Victorian community to provide feedback prior to the finalisation of the outcomes and priority directions that will be implemented over the next six years of this strategy’s life.

Next steps

The open community consultation via Engage Victoria will close on the 16th July.

Feedback from this consultation will be considered and appropriate updates made to the Draft Regional Catchment Strategy.

The final strategy will be considered by the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority's Board prior to being submitted for Ministerial approval.

A summary report of the key messages submitted through the consultations and any subsequent changes to the strategy will be made available via this Engage Victoria site.

Landscape System based action planning will be the next step in the process commencing once the Minister for Water approves the Regional Catchment Strategy.
