Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park Consultation

Ku-Ring-Gai National Park

HAVE YOUR SAY

On the future of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Lion Island Nature Reserve, Spectacle Island Nature Reserve and Long Island Nature Reserve

Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is one of the most popular national parks in NSW, with over 2 million visits each year. The existing plan of management for the park was written in 2002. Since that time much has changed. There has been a steady increase in visitors coming to the park, new recreational uses have become popular, information about the values of the park has improved, and new approaches to managing fire and pests and weeds have been developed.

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) manages Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Lion Island Nature Reserve, Spectacle Island Nature Reserve and Long Island Nature Reserve under one plan of management, which can be accessed here. The plan of management is a legal document that sets out future directions for a park (or group of parks), management actions to be undertaken, and the types of uses that are allowed.

We are now starting the process of preparing a new plan of management for these parks, and we want to hear the community’s views and ideas.

To find out about the plan of management and to register your interest in receiving updates during the preparation process, please go to the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park plan of management web page https://engage.environment.nsw.gov.au/ku-ring-gai-chase-national-park-consultation

There will be opportunities to provide input to the plan of management, including exhibition of a draft plan for public comment.

If a representative of your group or organisation would be interested in attending an information session, or if you have any queries or would like more information, please email here.

I encourage you to be involved and have a say on the future of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and the island nature reserves.

Yours sincerely

Deon van Rensburg
Director Metropolitan Branch
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service
