Richmond River Governance and Funding Framework

The NSW Government in collaboration with local councils and key stakeholder organisations of the Richmond River Catchment in NSW have completed a process to identify, scope and develop a preferred governance and funding framework for delivering improved river health outcomes.

This process has been run as an independent study by Alluvium Consulting Australia (Alluvium) and Natural Capital Economics NCE), working in collaboration with local government, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) and stakeholder groups.

The study was jointly funded by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage’s Coastal and Estuaries Grants Program and the local governments of Kyogle, Ballina Shire, Lismore City, Richmond Valley, Byron Shire, and by Rous County Council.

The final report has been released and can been viewed by clicking here. Council has been invited to provide comment on the report and is seeking submissions from the public. Submissions close at 4pm on Wednesday, 29 January, 2020 and should be emailed to council@kyogle.nsw.gov.au or sent by mail to The General Manager, Kyogle Council, PO Box 11, Kyogle, NSW, 2474.
