Local Government councils and Glenelg Hopkins CMA share responsibility for natural resource management. Eleven local government areas fall wholly or partly in our region.
The legislated powers, resources and networks of councils make them key partners in achieving many of the desired outcomes in our Regional Catchment Strategy.
Local councils own and control large parcels of land and are responsible for some roadside vegetation.

The Heytesbury District Landcare Network was formed in 1995 as a representative body providing support and facilitation to Landcare groups and many community groups within the Heytesbury and district region. The founding Landcare principles on which the HDLN was established have remained central to the services the Network has provided over the past years.
Today the HDLN has evolved to become a link between the community and government/ industry bodies delivering NRM outcomes. This is a role that the HDLN takes great pride in being able to deliver; we believe that it is a role that has been developed through the establishment of valued relationships with government / industry and the community alike.
