Management statements

The Nature Conservation Act 1992 requires the chief executive, as soon as practicable after the dedication of a national park, national park (Cape York Aboriginal land), regional reserve, or after the declaration of a nature refuge, coordinated conservation area or Indigenous joint management area, to prepare a management statement for the area.

While management plans and statements cover similar details, a management statement is designed to be a simpler expression of management intent for an area. Management statements can be delivered quickly, efficiently and at a low cost to provide management guidance for protected areas.

Management statements may require targeted consultation, depending on the protected area.

Management statements will suffice for the majority of Queensland’s protected areas; however management plans will continue to be prepared for areas where there are significant natural and cultural values or threats, significant public interest, or significant proposed commercial or recreation use. This will provide the opportunity for a comprehensive planning process that includes public consultation to be progressed where necessary.
