The Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area Draft Plan of Management is available for public review and comment.

The exhibition of the draft plan provides an important opportunity for the community to have a say on future management of Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area (including Mt Airly).

Questions and Answers

What is a plan of management?

Parks and reserves established under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 are required to have a plan of management. The plan provides guidance on key conservation and other values of the park, and provides directions for future management. The plan of management is a legal document and, after the plan is adopted, all operations and activities in the park must be in accordance with the plan.

What opportunities will the community have to comment?

The period of public exhibition of the draft plan of management has been extended to 31 December 2015 and anyone can make comments.

When will the plan of management be finalised?

At the conclusion of the public exhibition period in December 2015, all submissions will be comprehensively reviewed and input will be sought from the Blue Mountains Regional Advisory Committee and the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council.

Once this input has been received, as required by the National Parks and Wildlife Act, a final plan will be considered for adoption by the Minister for the Environment.
