Consultation has concluded

Background Context

We have carried out a review of all 87 Crown Land Reserves under our care, control and management. Crown Land is administered by the Department for Environment and Water. It is not owned by Council but is held for a public purpose.

While most of the Crown Land Reserves under Council’s care, control and management are of strategic value, 17 parcels have been identified that have not been used for their dedicated public purpose for many decades, or could more appropriately be managed in other ways.

In summary we are proposing to return 17 parcels of Crown Land Reserves to the Department for Environment and Water. (Refer to the document library for a list of all parcels of land)

Should the Department for Environment and Water accept the reversion of the Crown Land they would decide how they want to manage the land going forward.

A number of different options are proposed for the Crown Land Reserves that are considered surplus to Council’s strategic requirements.

Options include:

  • return to The Crown (administered by Department for Environment and Water)
  • change in custodian
  • incorporation into the protected area system through the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 in order to better protect their biodiversity values.

Consultation details

Please get in touch with our project team if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the proposal to return any of the parcels of Crown Land to the care of the Department for Environment and Water.
