Kemendok National Park Draft Plan of Management

The Kemendok National Park Draft Plan of Management (PDF 1.4MB) was available for review and comment from 30 June 2016 to 2 October 2017. Submissions are now closed.

Public exhibition of the draft plan provided an important opportunity for members of the community to have a say in the future management of Kemendok National Park.

Questions and answers

What is a plan of management?

Parks and reserves established under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 need to have a plan of management. The plan includes information on important park values 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 line with the plan.

What opportunities will the community have to comment?

The draft plan of management is on public exhibition until 2 October 2017 and anyone can review the plan and provide comments.

When will the plan of management be finalised?

At the end of the public exhibition period in October 2017, NPWS will comprehensively review all submissions, prepare a submissions report and make any necessary changes to the draft plan. The Far West Regional Advisory Committee and the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council will then review the plan along with the submissions and report, as required by the National Parks and Wildlife Act.

Once their input has been considered and any further changes made to the plan, we provide the plan to the Minister for the Environment. The plan of management is finalised when the Minister formally adopts the plan under the National Parks and Wildlife Act. Once a plan is adopted it is published on the NPWS website and a public notice is advertised in the NSW Government Gazette.
