2007 A Strategy for the Management of Roadside Environments in the Hunter, Central & Lower North Coast Region of NSW
The Regional Roadside Environment Strategy provides the strategic framework, direction and priorities for implementation of the Regional Roadside Environment Program.
The Regional Roadside Environment Strategy provides the strategic framework, direction and priorities for implementation of the Regional Roadside Environment Program. The Strategy incorporates a suite of recommendations to meet and address the needs and management issues that have been identified by councils, and incorporate and build upon existing roadside management initiatives, programs and systems identified during literature reviews and consultation processes. The strategy aims to:
- Build a consistent and comprehensive understanding, suite of skills, and information resources within councils to facilitate improved environmental assessment, protection, management and rehabilitation of council managed roadside environments.
- Recognise the considerable potential that exists for collaboration and resource sharing between councils to achieve multiple benefits including cost savings and efficiencies, avoidance of duplication of effort, and consistency in policy and practises.
The Strategy also includes an implementation plan that focuses on developing tools and resources to enhance the capacity of councils in regard to the assessment, management and protection of the environmental and NRM values that are found within roadside environments, and to promote a culture of information and resource sharing between councils in this regard.
