Environment and Transport and City Services—Standing Committee—Report 3—Draft lower Cotter Catchment Reserve Management Plan 2017—Government response.

Lower Cotter Catchment—Reserve Management Plan 2018.

I move:

That the Assembly take note of the papers.

The lower Cotter catchment reserve management plan 2018 has been prepared in accordance with chapter 8 of the Nature Conservation Act 2014. I am very pleased to be able to present the final plan to the Legislative Assembly today. The lower Cotter catchment is public land under the Territory Plan, reserved for the primary purpose of protecting existing and future water supply and the secondary purposes of conserving the natural environment and providing for public use of the area for education research and low impact recreation.

The plan will guide management and recreation use of the lower Cotter catchment over the next 10 years, with the aim of actively monitoring and promoting regeneration of the lower Cotter catchment to a fully functioning natural ecosystem of native vegetation that protects our water resources and conserves natural and cultural values while providing low-impact recreational opportunities for ACT residents and visitors.

The vision for the catchment set out in the plan is:

A recovering landscape, the Lower Cotter Catchment provides a reliable supply of clean water for the region while contributing to nature conservation, research, recreational and educational opportunities for all.
