New England National Park, Baalijin Nature Reserve and Jobs Mountain Nature Reserve Draft Plan of Management

The New England National Park, Baalijin Nature Reserve and Jobs Mountain Nature Reserve Draft Plan of Management is closed.

Public exhibition for this document was from 12 May 2017 to 28 August 2017. Public consultation for this document has ended.

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 28 August 2017 and anyone can review the plan and provide comments.

When will the plan of management be finalised?

Now the public exhibition period has closed, NPWS will comprehensively review all submissions, prepare a submissions report and make any necessary changes to the draft plan. The North Coast Regional Advisory Committee and the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council will then review the plan along with the submissions and report.

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.
