Why we need a Compliance Strategy

Crown Lands oversee a range of programs and activities that promote compliance with the law and monitor non- compliance, while balancing the use of public assets for private benefit.

The Crown Lands Compliance Strategy 2020–23 outlines our planned and proactive approach to managing important matters within the department’s land administration operations. We take our role as land managers seriously and this strategy ensures that priority issues are monitored and addressed, facilitating sound regulatory management of the Crown estate.

Crown Lands is a diverse organisation, with competing challenges and a large asset portfolio. We know we cannot do everything, and this strategy will help us prioritise actions. We are committed to an outcomes-focused and risk- based regulatory approach that aligns with the requirements of the NSW Quality Regulatory Services Initiative.

This strategy provides direction to our staff and Crown land managers who are actively engaged in Crown land management. It also informs the wider community of compliance priorities and how access and the enjoyment derived from this public asset will be maintained.
