This volume provides more specific detail and explanation regarding the requirements of the Act, the monitoring approach, the indicators and their results, along with details of progress made.
Purpose of this monitoring report
The purposes of this monitoring report are:
- To bring together and summarise the available information on the state of the heritage area environment and progress towards achieving the objectives of the Act. Where possible, indicators have been developed to summarise trends and changes and provide baselines against which future changes can be assessed.
- To identify gaps and limitations in the available data and recommend improvements to the monitoring system to be considered before the preparation of the next five-yearly report. The report is heavily reliant on existing information and additional monitoring work may be needed over the next five years in order to meet the requirements of the Act.
- To report on the funding impact arising from activities undertaken specifically to give effect to the Act.
The above matters are to be reported at least every 5 years in accordance with Section 34 of the Act. ...
