Have your say on management of Crown Land

WYATT Park, Auburn Park and Granville Park have never been more important to residents, providing spaces for recreation, community groups and sporting organisations, and now a review of Crown Land will ensure they continue to meet the demands of the community.

Crown Land managers, community groups, local Aboriginal Land Councils, native title groups, tenure holders and members of the public are invited to have their say on a review of the legislation that governs the management and use of Crown Land across the State.
Several parks in Cumberland are included in the review which will determine how well the Act is working and identify reforms that could strengthen and improve it to better manage the Crown estate. A final report will be due in July.
Interested parties are encouraged to visit to review a discussion paper and make submissions.
Minister for Lands and Property, Steve Kamper, said Crown Land was at the heart of many local communities and urged anyone interested to have their say “so we can make sure our Crown Land works to benefit everyone”.
“As the needs and aspirations of communities evolve, the use and management of Crown Land must evolve with it,” he said.
“It is crucial we revisit the legislation to check if it still meets its objectives or needs updating.”
Revenue generated through the use of Crown Land is funnelled back into the community through initiatives such as fire trail upgrades, repairs and maintenance projects, and pest and weed control, among other projects.
