Coorong Environmental Trust

Coorong Environmental Trust

It’s time to put people back at the centre of the decision making process when it comes to our water resources and the environment. Management of the Coorong and Lower Lakes should sit with the local community.

In 2019 I introduced my Coorong Environmental Trust Bill, which passed in the Upper House with in-principle unanimous support from members across parties.

The Bill has now been referred to a Select Committee that I am Chairing to ‘fine tune’ the details collaboratively.

The hearings held as part of the committee process have been invaluable and highlight that the local communities of the Coorong and Lower Lakes support the establishment of a Coorong Environmental Trust. We hope this will happen within a year, and I am proud to be spearheading this important work.
