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.

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 Northern Rivers Regional Advisory Committee and the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council, as required by the National Parks and Wildlife Act.

Additionally, the Byron Coast Area Management Committee, which enables joint management of the reserve by the Bundjalung of Byron Bay Arakwal People and NPWS, will also consider the plan and any submissions received, and may provide advice about the plan.

Once the input from these advisory bodies has been fully considered and recommended changes made to the plan, a final plan is provided 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.
