Adoption of a new Plan of Management for Lane Cove National Park
The Minister for the Environment adopted a new Plan of Management for Lane Cove National Park on 17 February 2016.
Lane Cove National Park is located in the Sydney metropolitan area. It covers an area of 670 hectares, stretching along the Lane Cove River from Wahroonga and Thornleigh to East Ryde.
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 requires that a plan of management be prepared for every national park in the State. Lane Cove National Park was previously subject to a plan adopted in 1998. A draft plan of management for Lane Cove National Park was placed on public exhibition between 12 October 2012 and 4 February 2013. The submissions received on the draft plan were carefully considered before adoption of the new plan.
The new plan contains actions to protect our natural environment, enhance cultural and recreation opportunities, increase opportunities for people to look after their neighbourhood environments and foster opportunities for partnerships with Aboriginal people.
The plan is available to view at http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/publications/parks/lane-cove-national-park-final-pom-160150.htm
