Our vision for the future

Crown land supports resilient, sustainable and prosperous communities across NSW.

What is Crown Land 2031

Crown land 2031 is a 10 year strategy to ensure that Crown land is put to its best uses to benefit communities. It will activate Crown land to grow tourism, support community groups, boost regional economies, advance Aboriginal interests, and provide more green open space.

Crown land is public land and this plan sets the road map for the Crown estate to support activities to create social, economic, cultural and environment benefits.

Crown land 2031 will be achieved through multi-year action plans so that priorities and actions can adapt and respond to changing circumstances, emerging evidence and community expectations.
