The committee consists of the Chief Executive of Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (or delegate) and nine others appointed by the Minister for the Environment.
The constitution and functions of the committee are in accordance with Section 30 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
Existing and new members of the Karst Management Advisory Committee were endorsed by the Minister for the Environment in late 2016 following careful deliberation. The first meeting of the new committee will occur in early-mid 2017 once the required administrative processes have been finalised. The Karst Management Advisory Committee reports to Minster through the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council and has a key role in the management of NSW karst environments.
