The Crown Land Management Act 2016 (CLM Act) was built on several years of review. It sets forth a commitment to enhance the strategic vision for Crown land and create strong accountability for the use and management of land. The CLM Act enables Crown land to be used for a diverse range of purposes to facilitate and deliver positive environmental, social and economic outcomes.
The intent of this discussion paper is to help with my independent statutory responsibility as Crown Land Commissioner to review the effectiveness of the implementation of the new legislation. I want to capture the diverse views of the community, land managers, and the Crown Lands branch of the department, as well as other government agencies, and engage in a public dialogue on the success of Crown land management since the CLM Act commenced in July 2018.
