Communities across the Murraylands, Mallee & Riverland are invited to contribute to the development of the Murraylands and Riverland Plan.

Sporting clubs, industry groups, churches, committees and other residents are invited to gather in small groups, have conversations about their needs and aspirations, and report back to mrplan.com.au to help inform future policy and strategic decisions for the region.

Chief Executive with Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland (RDAMR) Ben Fee encourages people to get involved.

"We've already held a number of conversations and interviews with the individuals who are less heard from. What we're hoping to do is to draw out the underlying issues we're seeing with the region, identify some of the big opportunities we've got in the region and start to develop an enduring planning process, where everyone feels they have a part to play in it," Ben Fee said.

The MR Plan is funded via the Australian Government Future Drought Fund and is a multi-agency project between RDAMR, the Murraylands and Riverland Local Government Association (MRLGA) and the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board (MRLB).
