Crown Lands Plans of Management now on Public Exhibition
The Narromine Shire community is invited to make submissions on Narromine Shire Council’s management of community land including parks, sportsgrounds and public spaces.
In 2018, new legislation came into effect regarding the management of Crown Lands. One of the most significant changes was the introduction of the Crown Land Management Act 2016. Under this new Act all Crown Reserves, where Council is the Crown Land Manager, must be managed as if they were public land under the Local Government Act 1993.
Narromine Shire Council’s General Manager Jane Redden said Narromine Shire has a total of 22 Crown Reserves that have been handed to Council as part of this process, in addition to Council’s other parcels of community land which Council manages on behalf of ratepayers.
Plans of Management have now been developed for all Crown and Council-owned community land within the Narromine Shire Local Government Area and Council considers it very important to obtain feedback regarding the plans for the future management of land to ensure the needs of our community are met, added Council’s General Manager, Jane Redden.
The documents are now available on Council’s website at https://www.narromine.nsw.gov.au/council/public-exhibition
Feedback and comments will be received for a for a period of 42 days, until 5.00 pm Monday 17 May 2021 and can be submitted in writing to the General Manager Narromine Shire Council, PO Box 115 Narromine NSW 2821 or via the feedback form on the Public Exhibition page on Council’s website.
