In June 2018 the Tamar NRM Strategic Directions 2018-2021 were signed off by the Management Committee. It presents our 3 year vision in a succinct and straight forward manner.
This latest update to our strategic directions incorporates the input and feedback gathered over two years and a process of alignment with the three Tamar councils’ objectives and other relevant regional documents.
Tamar NRM Strategic Direction 2018-2021 builds in what the rural and urban communities want of an NRM organisation delivering grass-roots driven projects across the Tamar Valley.
