Natural Area Conservation - Draft Community Plan Strategy

Page index


Given the variety, significance and scale of natural environments managed directly by the City of Rockingham, the Natural Area Conservation Community Plan Strategy is concerned with providing strategic direction to ensure that the City's natural areas are managed in an effective and sustainable way.

The purpose of this strategy is to protect and enhance the City’s natural areas through the management of threatening processes. The City’s natural areas support a variety of significant environmental attributes. The key elements of this strategy, being Environmental Management Plans and Environmental Monitoring Programs, will ensure that these areas are effectively managed.

Specific objectives

  1. To review and rationalise the existing strategic framework relating to City-managed natural areas
  2. To provide for the development of targeted environmental management plans for the City’s bushland, wetland, foreshore and urban environments
  3. To ensure management decisions are informed by accurate and comprehensive monitoring
  4. Advocate for effective management of natural areas within the municipality which are the responsibility of other agencies.
