Protecting and enhancing Crown land is essential for business, tourism, recreation, well-being, and biodiversity of the state. To ensure our assets are maintained, we implement, monitor, and manage infrastructure programs, planning schemes and environmental projects that enhance Crown land.
We manage a variety of built and natural assets across the state including coastal infrastructure, walking tracks, dams, lighthouses, and historical buildings. We also provide support to Crown land managers to manage built assets on reserves which include holiday parks, showgrounds, racecourses, clubs, and halls.
Some examples of built assets on Crown land
We are continually working to improve our Crown land built assets. These can include assets directly managed by us, by our Crown land managers or by other government departments including NSW Maritime and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.
How we work with our Crown land managers
All Crown land managers (CLMs) are required to carry out management duties in accordance with relevant legislation. Different legislative requirements will apply depending on the use and nature of the land. Specific management requirements may also be contained within a CLM’s appointment instrument or an adopted plan of management.
As managers of important public facilities, CLMs are accountable to their community. Non-council CLMs are required to act in accordance with the Crown Reserve Code of Conduct and report to the minister annually on their activities. Council CLMs are required to have a plan of management for all community land and must manage Crown reserves in accordance with their Council Code of Conduct.
All councils are legislated to report annually on their operations, and this includes the management of appointed Crown land.
