Community Recovery Plan
The Kangaroo Island Community Recovery Plan has been prepared by the local recovery team and the Kangaroo Island Local Recovery Committee, in consultation with the Kangaroo Island community. It analyses the impact of the bushfire disaster, outlines recovery actions, and identifies how a well-planned and coordinated approach will help the Island community recover, rebuild, grow and thrive.
Many of the actions in this plan have started during the course of this year and are well underway. Stakeholders – and in particular the lead agencies associated with the different actions – have been working from this plan and providing input to its ongoing development throughout the year.
The Local Recovery Committee is pleased to now have a published version of the plan to share widely.
The Plan aims to guide coordinated and integrated activities to support the medium to long-term social, economic and environmental recovery of Kangaroo Island and establish an outcome focus for recovery activities.

Have your say
The community’s input is vital for recovery. Many projects and programs are looking to the public for their thoughts and ideas.
The Kangaroo Island Local Recovery Committee comprises community representatives from across the Island, and provides support to the local community and local authorities in managing the recovery process. The Recovery Committee has a key role in restoring confidence to the community and provides a mechanism for local leadership and community led initiatives. The Committee guides decisions about recovery priorities, resource allocation and community needs.
