NORM Burton was blunt when he talked about the way forward for Landcare recently.

Speaking at the Darling Downs Regional Landcare Group's plan for the future meeting in Warwick last week, the chairman of Condamine Headwaters Landcare Group emphasised the need to deliver greater outcomes on the ground.

"In the next 12 months, Landcare needs to streamline our processes to deliver greater outcomes within our local communities," Mr Burton said.

"Now is the time to be promoting the energy and achievements within the Landcare movement, raising the Landcare profile with a range of investors that will hopefully deliver on-ground benefits to our members."

Teams from seven Landcare areas from the Condamine Headwaters based in Warwick through to Chinchilla met here to help plan the direction of the DDRLG.

Independent facilitator Jeanette Long worked with the group to reaffirm the purpose of Darling Downs Regional Landcare and to identify critical actions to take the group forward.

A key outcome from the day was the decision to meet with Condamine Alliance and Queensland Murray Darling Committees to develop a more co-ordinated approach to catchment projects.

"Each Landcare group knows what their local members need to deliver improved natural resource management outcomes," Mr Burton said.

The next meeting of DDRL is on August 24. If you have issues you would like discussed, contact your local Landcare group or visit headwaters.ddrlandcare.org.
