Palm Grove Nature Reserve Draft Plan of Management

Public exhibition for this document was from 29 April 2016 to 22 August 2016. Public consultation for this document has ended.

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. A plan of management identifies 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.

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. Input will be sought from the Central Coast Hunter 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.
