Community Engagement

Working with our community, who are the users of the Reserve, is integral to help us transform the space into an iconic, community driven destination.

We see community engagement as a key tool to help us develop a well-researched and robust Land Management Plan that addresses the needs of both the community and stakeholders and ensures the Reserve meets existing and future needs.

Your feedback and ideas will help guide us and provide input into how the Reserve looks and is utilised in the future.



On Wednesday, 29 July we hosted a Community Webinar where we discussed the draft Land Management Plan and answered questions from the community. 



Consultation on the draft Land Management Plan (LMP) has now closed.

The submissions and feedback that we have received are now being reviewed and considered in drafting the final Land Management Plan. We are also reviewing all Expressions of Interest that we have received from a diverse range of organisations and groups.

Once the plan is approved by the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, it will be publicly released, and will detail projects and initiatives that will be delivered within the next fifteen years with adequate funding. The Trust is also committed to achieving quick wins which will improve access, movement and activate the Reserve more immediately in the short term.
