Guide future park planning by sharing your feedback on Parks Victoria’s Land Management Strategy
Parks Victoria is pleased to announce that the Draft Aspiration Statement and Guiding Principles for the Land Management Strategy have been released for stakeholder and community feedback.
Commencing in early 2019, Parks Victoria embarked on developing a state-wide Land Management Strategy (LMS) for the park estate. Directed by the Parks Victoria Act (2018), the LMS will ‘set out the general long‑term directions, strategies and priorities for the protection, management and use of Parks Victoria managed land’. The LMS will cover all of the Parks Victoria estate; four million hectares across 3,000 land and marine parks across the state – which accounts for 18 per cent of Victoria’s land and 70 per cent of its coastline.
The Strategy will articulate how the parks estate responds to change and develops over time and will be used to guide more detailed planning and decision-making. Following completion, the LMS will be the key strategic document for Parks Victoria to guide the management of the parks estate.
The Draft Aspiration Statement and Guiding Principles have been developed through an extensive internal Parks Victoria engagement process that included a series of regional workshops and an internal digital platform where staff provided their input.
Parks Victoria is now seeking feedback from key stakeholders and the community on the Draft Aspiration and Statement and Guiding principles. You can provide your feedback online at www.engage.vic.gov.au/lms until midnight Sunday 29 September.
