Over time, many areas of land in our LGA have been zoned, guided by legislation, to avoid human impact and ensure protection of biodiversity in the area.
Under these zoning laws, we have a responsibility to minimise impact on essential elements to our ecosystems - like soil compaction, erosion and general disturbance of the vegetation.
We manage a large amount of bushland and reserves that are owned by Crown Lands. In line with our responsibilities as the Land Manager, we are required to manage the bushland in accordance with the Crown Lands gazetted purpose – which is often environmental conservation.
This means we must pursue innovative and ecologically sustainable approaches towards our community living harmoniously with our environment. This includes creating spaces and tracks that are safe for both our people and nature.
