The Crown Land Act 1989 provides for preparing plans of management for Crown reserves in consultation with the community. Defined principles of Crown land management underpin the management and use of Crown land.
Crown Reserve Plans of Management
Plans of management may be prepared for Crown reserves. These plans may be initiated by reserve Trusts, the Department of Primary Industries - Lands or the Minister responsible for administering the Crown Land Act 1989.
Following preparation, a draft plan of management for a Crown reserve is placed on public exhibition for 28 days. Public comments are considered before the Minister adopts the plan.
These plans of management become regulatory instruments, which bind the Reserve Trust and can give statutory authority to other types of plans, such as conservation management plans for heritage components.
For more information or assistance refer to the Reserve Trust Handbook Chapter 5: Plans of management.
