Kiama Council is preparing a plan of management for key reserves it manages on behalf of the NSW Government (council-managed crown land).

These 18 reserves include Saddleback Mountain, Blowhole Point, Kiama Showground, Gerringong Harbour and Seven Mile Beach.

This plan of management will set out what each reserve can be used for, what (if any) development can occur and what leases and licences are allowed.

This also helps us define the planning, resource management and maintenance required. 

We have developed a draft plan of management involving significant consultation with precinct committees, tourism and business groups as well as the wider community.

We also conducted an online survey to capture what people think is important about these places and how they should be managed.

Results from the survey and feedback from the various groups helped develop the draft plan of management.

The draft plan of management has been reviewed by Council and the NSW Government.

It has also been placed on public exhibition to gather final community feedback.

A final plan of management will now be presented to Council and the NSW Government for approval.
