What is a Plan of Management?
A plan of management is a statutory instrument that provides strategic planning and governance for the management and use of land.
Plans of management (PoM) set out objectives and performance targets for community land and provide for active land management and use. PoMs for Crown reserves typically provide a wealth of information about that site, including social, environmental and economic values.
Why does this land need a Plan of Management?
The introduction of the Crown Land Management Act 2016 (the Act) requires all Crown Land in NSW be managed under a plan of management. Additionally, the the Act appoints Council as the reserve manager.
The Crown Land around Mosman Bay and Sirius Cove is currently not manage under a Plan of Management. To ensure compliance with statutory deadlines council has commenced preparation of a Plan for the land.
Can I provide feedback?
Yes. You are invited to provide feedback on the reserves including what you like about them, any issues that need to be addressed or any recommendations for management that you may have.
What happens after the consultation period?
At the end of the consultation period, all submissions received will be reviewed and considered in the finalisation of the draft Plan of Management.
The final draft Plan of Management will then be referred to a Council meeting with a recommendation that Council endorse the final draft Plan of Management and issue it Crown Lands for approval.
