What is an RCS?

Regional Catchment Strategies are a requirement of the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994 and is intended to be the primary integrated planning framework for land, water and biodiversity for the region. It helps provide direction for how the region’s land, water and biodiversity should be managed and should capture the values and priorities of the regional community.
