Land and On-Water management Plans are viewed as an integral component of Goulburn-Murray Water’s dams management planning portfolio. The Plans are intended to be a key reference document for Goulburn-Murray Water and the communities and diverse stakeholders that interact with these storages.
Typically the Plans identify and adopt strategies that address important issues related to improving the condition of local natural resources, engage local communities, gain community support and cooperation for major initiatives and establish cooperative partnerships between community, agencies and government. The Plans are recognised for achieving broad scale agreement between agencies on principles of sustainable land use and development, providing strong strategic direction and a clear set of objectives for management of the storage or water body and surrounding foreshore. The Plans include strategic actions relating to a number of themes including cultural heritage, recreation and tourism, land management, water quality and healthy ecosystems.
