|The Future Sydney Metropolitan Catchment Action Plan (CAP)|
This site is the "go to" place for information relating to the development of Sydney's new CAP. It will give you information on what's happening and our up-coming activities. So save it in your favourites.
All Catchment Management Authorities are required to write a Catchment Action Plan (CAP). These plans are central to the delivery of natural resource management throughout New South Wales.
A CAP is a ten year strategic plan that sets targets and directs investment of public and private funds. The aim in writing a CAP is to achieve sustainable natural resource management that meets our community and partners' expectations.
The Catchment Management Authority (CMA) works closely with local councils and the State government agencies. All of these organisations have their own management and action plans for the specific natural resource issues and sometimes for the specific places they manage. It is vital that the SMCMA’s CAP contains strategies that are in alignment with those of its partners. These documents include water sharing plans, Plans of Management for Community Land and Council Community Strategic Plans.
Our first draft of the SMCMA's revised CAP "A Plan for Sydney's Liveability" was out for comment. We are now reviewing the feedback and improving it so it can be merged into a wider Hawkesbury Nepean and Sydney CAP.
Thanks to all those people who gave us their thoughts on the "places" in Sydney that are important to them. We have analysed all these data and it can be found in the publications area.
We have also been consulting with our government, business and community partners to ensure their knowledge goes into our new CAP.
