One of the Visions being developed for the Styx Catchment is to establish 'The Styx' as a place to be through maintaining and enhancing the special character and identity of the area.

When considering issues relating to the purchase or sub-dividing of land, planting or felling of trees, earthworks, fencing and other such practical matters it is important to seek advice as to what is appropriate and allowable.

Maintenance issues within reserves, and particularly in and around the river, also affect the quality of the ecosystem.
