Natural Resource Management/Environmental Advisory Group (NRMEAG)

We are excited to announce the launch of our Natural Resource Management/Environmental Advisory Group (NRMEAG).

Expressions of Interest were open for three weeks and closed on 22 September 2023.
We received ten quality applications during the EOI period.

Based upon the approved Terms of Reference, EOI’s were assessed and selected based on the selection criteria responses in the application. The makeup of the membership of the NRMEAG was formally endorsed by Council at the October Meeting.

The group members are as follows:

Andrew Stevenson, Peter French, Tina Acuna, Louise Purcell, Andrew North and Councillors Janet Gatehouse and Melinda Reed.

The purpose of the NRMEAG is to provide Council with insightful advice, recommendations and to facilitate the implementation of NRM Strategy and broader environmental activities. The Group focuses on key aspects such as climate change, landscape and land use management, waterways and water body management, and stakeholder management. The advice and recommendations are to ensure the effective implementation of the NRM Strategy and other environmental strategies and policies.
