Questions and answers

What is a statement of management intent?

After a park's reservation and before the release of its plan of management, a statement of management intent is prepared outlining the management principles and priorities for the park's management. This statement briefly documents the cultural heritage, geology, native animals and plants found within the park, as well as describing threats, including fire, pests and climate change.

The statement of management intent is not a statutory document and a plan of management will still need to be prepared. Publication of a draft or final plan will replace the statement of management intent for the Pilliga Outwash parks.

What happens to your feedback?

Step 1: Your submission is part of the process of making this draft plan final. After the close of the public exhibition period in August 2017 we consider all submissions and prepare a submissions report.

Step 2: We provide the relevant Advisory Committee and the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council with the draft plan, all of the submissions and the submissions report. They then consider the documents, make comments on the plan or suggest changes, and provide advice to the Minister for the Environment.

Step 3: The Minister considers the plan, submissions and any advice, makes any necessary changes and decides whether to adopt the plan under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
