Catchment Management Authority

Having our say in the management of our natural resources.

The NSW Government established 13 Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) to ensure that regional communities have a significant say in how natural resources are managed in their catchments.

The Parkes Shire lies within the Lachlan and Bogan River catchments, which are managed by the Lachlan and Central West Catchment Management Authorities.

The CMAs are locally driven organisations with a board that reports directly to the NSW Minister for Natural Resources. These statutory bodies, established under the Catchment Management Authorities Act 2003 (CMA Act), coordinate natural resource management (NRM) in each catchment. They are responsible for involving regional communities in management of the NRM issues facing their region, and are the primary means for the delivery of funding from the NSW and Commonwealth Governments to help land managers improve and restore the natural resources of the State.

For more information contact Council's Natural Resources Manager on (02) 6861 2333.
