Richmond Riverkeeper was formally established in May 2022 with the overall aim of giving a voice to the rivers of the Richmond River and providing a foundation for a holistic approach to river management across the six local government areas that affects the river catchment including Byron Shire, Lismore City, Ballina Shire, Richmond Valley Shire, Kyogle Shire, and Rous County Council, drawing together expertise and commitment.

As a newly established organisation, Richmond Riverkeeper is keen to consolidate early business planning and establish a basis for its operations, with a focus on identifying key actions for the years 2024 – 2030 through its Vision and Business Strategy.

Richmond Riverkeeper commissioned the Alluvium Group to assist with this work. Development of the Strategy has been funded by a grant from the NSW Government, Department of Regional NSW.
