This draft Lachlan Regional Water Strategy was on the second round of public exhibition from 5 October until 18 November 2022.
Due to the extensive flooding situation impacting communities across the Lachlan region at the time, a decision was made, in consultation with key stakeholders, to re-exhibit the draft Lachlan Regional Water Strategy in 2023.
Thank you to stakeholders who made submissions during this consultation period. All submissions have been considered. There will be further opportunities to make submissions.
Please email the Regional Water Strategies team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further details about the development of this strategy.

Following public consultation, we will develop an implementation plan that will set out when we plan to commence each action and what we plan to achieve by when. The implementation plan will also identify key partners in effectively delivering these actions, including local councils, other government agencies, local community groups and local Aboriginal communities.
Not all actions will be commenced at once, and funding will be a key consideration in planning when and how the actions will be implemented. The regional water strategies will be a key tool in securing funding as future opportunities arise.
