Why is Council reviewing the Bushcare Manual?
In 2013 Council conducted a review of all community conservation programs, including Bushcare and Landcare, to ensure that resources invested in these programs continue to be well directed, are responsive to community needs, and provide value for money. After extensive community consultation the Community Conservation Program (CCP) Plan 2014 was adopted by Council in November 2014.
Some changes to the delivery of the Bushcare program were foreshadowed in the CCP 2014.
Some Council processes and procedures regarding volunteer organisation and work health and safety have also been recently updated.
This procedures manual provides direction on the delivery of the Bushcare program to comply with the CCP 2014 and to implement Council’s ongoing commitment to good governance, EEO and a safe workplace.
