TRRA has made a detailed submission on a draft Strategic Plan for Crown land in NSW HERE. While an overall Plan is welcome, and it contains many welcome principles and objectives, we fear that will be used as a smokescreen and excuse for increased commercialisation of public land. The contribution of Crown land to environmental protection is constantly under threat. We have made several suggestions for changes, including an emphasis on greater transparency and accountability, using the Port Stephens Council Holiday Parks as examples of how not to manage Crown land in the public interest.
