Note: Use the links above to access asset data for the Gascoyne.
61 assets are currently on the Asset Register for the Gascoyne, added either through the desktop study (undertaken in preparation for this plan) or the asset nomination workshops. These are categorised as Umbrella, Significant or Notable according to their scale, complexity and the number of smaller-scale assets they incorprate. Umbrella assets are very large, very complex and comprise may small-scale assets, e.g. the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, while Notable assets are at the other end of the spectrum and are small scale, less complex assets, such as Edithana Pool. See the Asset Categories page for a more detailed explanation.
The relative significance of assets, in the context of the whole of the Rangelands were scored using the categories of Exceptional, Very High, High and Moderate. The level of threat against them, considering all threats, was assessed as either Very High, High, Moderate or Low.
Once technical feasibility, landholder adoption and adoption by other organisations (such as state agencies) was assessed, a short list was created of assets that look like solid candidates for further investigation (i.e. those that have high significance, high threat and meet the other filtering criteria). This list is called the ‘Potential projects list’.
