LAP - On Ground Works

Steadily increasing levels of landholder participation in on ground works has been a highlight of the LAP's success. More than two thirds of the areas landholders being actively involved in more than 200,000ha of on-ground works projects. The LAP's on-ground works program has been able to deliver up to 80% of all external funding on-ground. This is due to the large scale projects and considerable support of the Coorong and Tatiara District Councils.

The Coorong Tatiara LAP has worked closely with the community to identify our priority issues, develop a range of recommended land management and biodiversity enhancement options, and implement these on the ground. Alone, no single landholder can solve these problems, but with a district wide effort we can make a real difference.

In the last two years Coorong Tatiara LAP have successfully delivered smaller scale projects for African Boxthorn Control and Soil Stabilisation in the Sherwood Fire Recovery area.

Project Waiting List

In the past the Coorong Tatiara LAP has been able to provide funding toward a wide range of on farm projects such as; revegetation, fencing, remnant vegetation, perennial pasture establishment, and much more.

Although no funding for on farm projects is currently available, we are busy applying for funding at every opportunity to enhance our environment and support sustainable land management across the Coorong and Tatiara. If you have a terrific project that you are planning please feel free to share the details with us. If a funding source becomes available, we may be able to match it to your project.

Please email Tracey Strugnell on tstrugnell@coorong.sa.gov.au to share your ideas.
