Have your say on the draft State Strategic Plan for Crown land until midnight Thursday 20 August 2020.

Crown land is highly valued and enjoyed by individuals and diverse communities across the state. It is used for a wide variety of purposes, from farms, parks, reserves, roads and cemeteries, to showgrounds, campgrounds, surf clubs, community halls and industrial sites.

Under the Crown Land Management Act 2016 (the Act) the NSW Government is required to create a State Strategic Plan for Crown land. The State Strategic Plan will set the vision, priorities and overarching strategy for the management of Crown land and outline timeframes and outcomes.

About the draft State Strategic Plan

The draft State Strategic Plan identifies four key priority areas to enable the use of Crown land to evolve and meet changing community needs.

The draft plan identifies outcomes for each of these priority areas, as well as short, medium and long term timeframes from 2020 through to 2030.

A range of initiatives to support the delivery of the outcomes are also identified in the draft plan.  These include:

  • making more of our information available and transparent
  • standardising leasing and licensing for common activities
  • engaging and supporting a new generation of Crown land managers.

Crown land supports resilient, sustainable and prosperous communities
