Parliamentary Inquiry into Crown Land

Public lands should be held on trust for the people of NSW; managed by the Government with management directed at identifying and protecting the diverse values of public lands. The NSW Government is proposing significant changes to the way Crown land is managed.

The NSW Upper House is currently conducting an inquiry into Crown Lands in NSW. The inquiry will look at:

a)  the extent of Crown land and the benefits of active use and management of that land to New South Wales,

b)  the adequacy of community input and consultation regarding the commercial use and disposal of Crown land,

c)  the most appropriate and effective measures for protecting Crown land so that it is preserved and enhanced for future generations, and

d)  the extent of Aboriginal Land Claims over Crown land and opportunities to increase Aboriginal involvement in the management of Crown land.

Submissions to the inquiry will be accepted until Sunday 24 July 2016.
