Capertee National Park Draft Plan of Management is on public exhibition until 18 January 2023.
Once adopted, this plan of management will replace the statement of management intent, which was approved in 2014. Public exhibition of the draft plan allows members of the community to have a say in the management directions for the park.
The draft plan is accompanied by the Capertee National Park Draft Planning Considerations report. It is recommended that readers of the plan refer to the planning considerations report for detailed explanations of the park's values and management considerations.
Capertee National Park is located approximately 115 kilometres north of Lithgow on the western side of the Blue Mountains. Key issues addressed in this plan include:
- protecting Country and numerous significant cultural sites
- providing important habitat for threatened and non-threatened fauna, including the critically endangered regent honeyeater
- providing a continuation of the natural corridor of reserved land linking to the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and other nearby natural areas.
